tonight it comes back
and fills my head like it’s been gone all day
(but really it’s only been gone for about half a day)

and it flows in my blood and it paints
the rest of me
the rest of the world
that was missing not even an hour ago
with colour of its own
so that i don’t have to borrow from memory

the leaves are green and the water’s my home, after all
and the snake is a creature of earth
and yes, oh yes, of water

and even though the sky can sometimes burn in purple and orange fire
i am the master of rock
and water
and of dreams
