staring down, wings bound
blood soil drawing out
blood earth calling out
reaching past rivers borne
reaching towards waters home
rock folk standing still
slow killing the worm
tightened 'round my throat
gift given cut
blood eye guts
these are my knives
stone kissed etching eye
blood soil, mother
blood sky, father
