In the cool aisle, he and I
with the wide-mouths and the half racks
the cold-filtered and the corked necks.

In the cool aisle, he and I
played at being another couple,
the cold-filtered and the corked necks,
at a loss in the other isles.

Played at being another couple
while we strangled each other with lanyards
at a loss in the other isles
where the sea salt stacks up so high

While we strangled each other with lanyards
and swore like sailors
where the sea salt stacks up so high
as to cause interference with life.

And swore like sailors
as we fucked at such a frequency
as to cause interference with life.

As we fucked at such a frequency
and the sun never rose in the north.
There has always been a town
with a name that is one long vowel sound.

And the sun never rose.
All I wanted was to sleep near him
with a name that is one long vowel sound
and the dark riggings tied thick around -

All I wanted to sleep near him
with the wide-mouths and the half racks
and the dark riggings tied thick around.
