naked in the river
I was with you there
you bled from your feet
drank the freezing water

you broke in the bedrooms
of vacation homes
slept in their beds
pulled the blankets off them

you said: when I take my
body off you'll have to
turn your face away
from the brightness in me

you got drunk and pulled your
lover's dress off
at the riverbank you said
real women don't mind the cold

I don't miss the harm you did
but I remember what you said:
everything keeps turning over
you can't grow up you just grow older

you moved back to stay with
your folks in Carolina
I visited you
your dad took me hunting

I woke up and found you
watching High Noon
with the volume low
you said: here comes the good part

Gary Cooper shoots down
all his enemies
and the white ground catches
up their ruined bodies

in the morning your dad
asked if I knew
where you'd gone
and why you took his rifle

I don't miss the harm you did
but I guess I miss
hearing from the other room how
you sang in your sleep you called out
