Once A White Owl

from by Clara Engel

lyrics

once a white owl came down
drank the colour from the world
the sun folded on itself
we couldn’t see our hands

once a white owl came down
made a nest in your sister’s house
took your father’s eyes
and your mother’s mouth
led you out on a windy ledge

once a white owl came down
and gave your life another name
play with fire, you can play with shame
my indifference trumps every red card in the game

once a white owl came down
drank the colour from the world
the sun folded on itself
we couldn’t see our hands

white feathery down dust in your hair

have you come alone?

you can tell me everything
