drop a name in the water.
drop a name in the water.
drop another name in the water.

and another.

and another.
and another.
there are no more bodies in your body.

                                        but i look at you.
                                        i look at you, and god,
                                        constellations are bursting,
                                        fires are dying,
                                        silence is deafening,
                                        the whole damn world is terrifying - - -
                                        — — and im falling, god, i’m falling,
                                                i’m falling in love with you.
