Majestic and fear imposing. Unwinds a march toward despair. It cries recursion, into a tragedy.

Bjork - Bachelorette
I'm a fountain of blood,
in the shape of a girl.
you're bird on the brim,
hypnotized by the whirl.

Drink me -- make me feel real,
wet your beak in the stream.
the game we're playing is life,
love's a two way dream.

Leave me now -- return tonight,
tide will show you the way.
if you forget my name,
you will go astray,
like a killer whale trapped in a bay.

I'm a path of cinders,
burning under your feet.
you're the one who walks me,
I'm your one way street.

I'm a whisper in water,
a secret for you to hear.
you're the one who grows distant,
when I beckon you near.

I'm a tree that grows hearts,
one for each that you take.
you're the intruders hand,
I'm the branch that you break.
