When our mouths are filled with univited tongues of others
And thew strays are pining for their unrequited mothers
Milk that sours is promptly spat
Light will fill our eyes like cats

And they shall enter from the back
With spears and scepters and squirming sacks
Scribs and tangles between their ears
Faceless scrumbled charcoal smears

Through the coppice and the chaparral
The thickets thick with mold
The bracken and the brier
Catchweed into the fold

When our mouths are filled with uninvited tongues of others
And the strays are pining for their unrequited mothers
Milk that sour is promptly spat
The light will fill our eyes like cats
Cataracts
