Baby snack time
Chow down to earth but in your head

And my folks/parents have no idea what I do, they say I sleep

all in a cloud of the color of the sky...
Fall in love, you, you, again,

the water of the sea.

From a hundred miles away and somehow

I am waiting for you to give me advice
on how to heal a heart that hemorrhages.
