lyrics

HALLOWEEN (Margaret)

Oh, God, he’s handsome, you know.
Yeah, you’re stricken.

No, hold him fast, don’t let go,
Feel him quicken.
And his hand on my –

Yes, feel him shift, here’s the test:
Trousers tattered.

Press, hip-to-hip, chest-to-chest,
Heartbeats scatter, shard and shatter.

And the pines shiver slow,
But they won’t let him go,
No they won’t let him go.

There, feel his skin sprout with hair,
Haunches rippling,
Your fear crippling.

Bare, scaled skin snake-smooth, a dare:
Fingers slipping,
Oh, he’s slipping . . .

And the pines shiver slow
But I can’t let him go,
No, I can’t let him go.

Turn, as his skin smokes and burns,
Your hands blacken
But don’t slacken.

Churn, as your lover returns
In the bracken,
In the bracken.

Oh, the pines shiver slow,
But I won’t let him go,
No, I won’t let him go!
