two thousand sixteen,
 
in the procession box
 
waiting for the fire
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
notes in the hymnal
 
of the muted choir
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen 
 
dirty ways to say 
 
I love you
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
stagnate words to 
 
aplomb along to
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
tiny little swears
 
in the glory of the air
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
was mean, starvation-lean,
 
and everything in between 
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
sixteen,
 
16 candles for the vigil
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen,
 
the collective forgot
 
the individual
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen,
 
resting on the laurels 
 
of sacred love
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
angels in the empire 
 
up above
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
gave us the mirror, 
 
to see the crow in the dove
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen,
 
the teacher learned 
 
the lesson of pain
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen, 
 
everything that's old
 
is new again
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen,
 
resting on the laurels 
 
of sacred love
 
 
 
two thousand sixteen
 
angels in the empire 
 
up above
