To Nevada From Japan
you're chasing permanence under trees as old as air
and I'm here making lists of crumbling walls
but if night can be a continent then we will be at sea
and these could be our navigators' calls
 
so send everything to sky, I will see you when you fly
the desert only wants you to be warm
and any distance made of sand will turn to water in our hands
like these valentines to Nevada from Japan
 
I wake with arguments and settle them in fur
and indices of imaginary nows
you weigh the hours of an exodus from cold
as if measurements could tell us what to hold
 
so send everything to sky, I will see you when you fly
the desert only wants you to be warm
and any pictures made of sand will turn to memory in our hands
like these valentines to Nevada from Japan
 
you're chasing begin again under rocks as old as stars
and I'm watching kayaks fill with snow
and Luna's somewhere hidden upstairs disassembling pens
and I'm learning how to write with them again
 
so send everything to sky, I will see you when you fly
the desert only wants you to be warm
and all the futures made of sand will flow together in our hands
like these valentines to Nevada from Japan
