You’re gone, the trees are so quiet.

When your hand was in my pocket, how they swayed from side to side.

Now they meddling sky and my snowy eye sees a different night.

The night I fell into the lion’s jaws, to my regret and your delight.

Those teeth themselves could not divine, nor their pressure estimate, the haze I wish to never break, and to never contemplate.

Momentum for the sake of momentum.

Momentum for the sake of momentum.”
