Found on Blind Pigeon Records Compilation #6


White door squeaking,
quiet toes rising make a character by contrast.
Turning at the landing,
tempted to pull outward,
She's stretching out her heart.
I come from the dark.

"Why are you so heavy?" <she said.>
(I burned up all my light, walking early in the night.)
That distant glow = now the glow that may come.
I left that soft, tear-drop dew in its jeopardy.
I come from the dark.

Somewhere fast between the stripes,
after the river runs away,
there's an entry to the old wood where you close the door behind.
I've done a little leaving.
I've done a lot of coming home.
Pride is a sweet swell knowing this county line.
But creeping on after is that humming burden spread,
and I fear a swarthy exposition of my home.
I come from the dark.
