emily portman – hollow feather lyrics


as you lay in the darkening
a small stack of rattling sticks
at the tattered tail end of winter
all the birds of the air flew in
robin called for owl, owl called for swallow
who flew to the spot, your joy and your sorrow
swan, swan, our friend is ailing
you took his black bread but never from his hand
now leave your reflection and come to land
beak tapping at your window
swan’s come in
with a heavy winged beak, cast over your sh+ll
and feather upon skin, you start fl!ckering
swan’s drawn a hollow feather, arrow sharp
and pierced your heart through
and out of the window, two swans rise
fast flourescent bloom, all thе birds of the air, they sing
they sing thе long night through
