Laura veirs - Saltbreakers

Serpent tails and flying fish
Sup up all the wishes
That you sent to the stars
Chinese dragons incandescent
Mirrors in the waves
I want to put them in jars

With my-y-y saltbreakers
Ringing all the underwater
Underwater, underwater bells

Look inside a space
Look inside a space and you can tell

What you need to sow
What you need to know by any means

You will not burn me up
Though I've dreamed nightly of your face
And walk the streets of my life
With your singing in my silent brain
You cannot burn me up
I'm a falling leaf who keeps her green
And don't forget I've got my
Trusty bag of oh-oh-oh

Flashing in the night
Flashing all around my arms

Throwing me down
Turning on the fireflies

The ebb and the flood
Clearing all the channels of your heart

Bleached by the dark
Oceans of clouds
Rainstorms of ash
Stars on the ground

All around my-y-y saltbreakers
Floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bumblebee

Dashing alright, splashing
O and slumbering

Mirror to the serpentine stars
