found me in my youth
took me in its arms
whispered I was worth less
than this salt earth
that will never grow anything good

then I built my life on this ground
forgot its name and its voice in the sound
made a cage from the stones of my house
it took me decades before I finally found
each bent nail knots in the timber
barred windows that let in the chill every winter
each floorboard creak cried ghost speak
echos of that forgotten whisper


from Integrity EP, released July 8, 2017
