Autumn

about

I wrote these words almost a year ago, and finally gave them an appropriately earthy and autumnal setting.

lyrics

We recline on the ground in the orchard at dusk
Fruit falls, already fermented
We are drunk, sated
We share with the fat worms who will eat us -- later

We need never work again
There is pleasure and song now
And this intoxicating harvest 
And winter so long we’ll never see Spring again
—Soon Winter so long we will never see Spring again

Wrap me in deep velvet 
Let me smell the decay on your breath
As we consummate this futureless lust
As we sink slowly into the earth

Do we desire a sturdy coffin for two 
Or to let scavengers clean our bones?
Any way we decompose will be so beautiful
Nothing is ugly, in the Fall

Flowers faded long ago and we still love them
Let others remember us 
With all our sorrows and decadence
As shamelessly and without regret
We dissolve

(We need never work again
There is pleasure and song now
Forever)
