You were the country, and I was just hungry
for loving, or something to fill up my emptiness.
You were my favorite, and I was just lazy,
my mind in the sky, your pink face lost in haziness.
I would've tilled you better had I known
what fruits would have grown.

You don't have to tell me, the season taught me humility:
I know I fucked up.
Well, I'd fast for the past, the purity I'd exhausted
and lost in you.

You were the country, and I'm just a man
with impositions of property on your lawless land--
well, I need you more than you need me, you could
go on growing eternally, but now who would be there
to perceive and cultivate your beauty?

You are the root, and I am the stem
growing ever outward as you reach in
to sip the eternal nectar from the ethereal core,
your liquid wisdom teaches me what we're for:
together we're tethered, together we have power
to color the world and each other with flower.

You are the country, and I am just hungry
for loving, or something to fill up my emptiness.
