Horse Latitudes

Drifting info horse latitudes
The Language of thirst
A false communion
The iron taste of blood
In your mouth
The wild blue

Dying into God's empty hands
Silver the silhouette
Of ashes on the land
The bleach white skulls
Of buffalo face the sun
The burning sand

Where the halogen halos
Shine on the refugees
Banded birds flying
Up above and endless sea
God is the mouth
Of a river going dry
God is a mouthful of rain
A tear in your eye

Singing into the belly of a whale
Leviathan's ribs
A drowning jail
The desert at the bottom
Of the sea
The Devil with his finger
On the scale
