Birmingham, Alabama. June 2011.

I went and looked her in the eyes
and she turned me into sand.
This clumsy form that I despise
it scattered easy in her hand.

And came to rest upon a beach,
with a million others there.
We sat and waited for the sea
to stretch out so that we could disappear

into the endlessness of blue,
into the horror of the truth.
You see, we are far less than we knew
Yeah, we are far less than we knew.
