lyrics

soot covered all we knew
to look upon a sea of eyes
silver birch, glowing
emanating luminous dust
forcing moments of contemplation

on weekends we would scrub sooted knees
brave namesake,
the river nymphs of mosquito creek

the cool waters would wash away our filth
of sweat, anger, doubt
born again
children of the woods

felt hats gathered nootka
who sang sweet, sorrow filled hymns
of all that is to be returned

the medicine of the north
worn into our boots
i still find ash, yarrow, birch
endless pockets
mo(u)rning songs
