Before Sleep

I have words I’ve yet to promise,
A handful of insults
And a truth I need to bury,

Far beyond the blind man’s winds and clouds
Or the dreams trapped on the sand,

Across the tide’s dark purple hue
And beneath the questioning dusk,

I shake dried mud from my hair
And laugh at nothing won;

I have promises I’ve yet to insult,
A handful of truths
And some words I need to bury.
