Paper that's quick to burn
I'm the cinnamon peeler
Beetles crushed to dye the carmine
I exist to be dreaming still

Kansas, Arkansas
Fields that richen in fire
We long worked labor not worth our minds
And I had almost forgotten the feeling of silence

If the roses need not tending
Until noon I'd sleep
Never could I have gone on that way
Because money was not the thing that yielded sight

Colorado, Wyoming
Helena into the evergreen
The waves washed all thought
Of endeavor that was left in me

Would you ask my permission
The next time you absorb me
Preserve my memory of the misted west
I lay no claim to the devotion I felt

Our conversation banked in me
I almost forgot the nature of dawn
I thought of it for days after
Even months after the moments were gone

If the roses need not tending
Until noon I'd sleep
before I'd left I felt so convinced
That no peace could remain within my love
