Originally released on this compilation:

"Gossamer" is a song about how our love can pay the debt of our loss. Also, Gossamer is a cat with no eyeballs.


one day we will wake to erstwhile footholds
footholds returned to earth, fallen from mantels
to dusted floorboards, madrugada light
now high-nooned til dusk; ten bodyfather
iron building fingers unfleshed to bones:
pulchritudinous pith of liminal french tones,
a summer's peach in winter’s air:
space wrested from the grip of a non-woken sleep

tri-cone eyes, incapaces: the incapables
they have cheap notions of color
and dream an ersatz shrimp mantis dreamlight

there is a place; weave grey linen thread
hands holding legs, touching thighs
like widowed blades, blades of grass
just as the light slats slant on these minted walls
our love begins to amortize
all that we lose, in losing have lost
our lives are solvent; we become whole
again, again we will win this infinite thing

this gossamer morning is for you
and so too this, your crepuscular paint
to make our house new; make our house new
