Lost Wisdom

I got close enough to the river that
I couldn't hear the trucks
but not close enough to stop the roaring of my mind
these rocks don't care if I live or die
everyone I know will finally turn away
I will confuse and disinterest all posterity
lost wisdom
is a quiet echo
lost wisdom
by the edge of the stream at dusk
is a quiet echo on loud wind

with one hand in the water running cold and clear
fog obliterates the morning and I don't know where I am
the heart is pounding and you are always on my mind
lost wisdom
is a quiet echo
lost wisdom
a boulder under the house
I used to know you
now I don't

the screaming wind said my name
I think significant and dark
my lost face in the mirror at the gas station
who are you but my face that I wake up with alone
lost wisdom
approaching shape in the low light

you thought you knew me
you thought our house was home
I thought I knew myself
I thought my heart was calm
thunder lightning
tidal wave
the wind blew down the door
lost wisdom
the river goes through the room

I saw your picture out of nowhere
and forgot what I was doing
everything vanished in your eclipse
a constellation of moments comes to life in the void
lost wisdom
face down under the moss
enraptured by the beautiful face in the billowing flames
I open the front and back door and let the wind blow through
and I stood in the house and tried to hold the breeze
lost wisdom
waking up in a pile of ash
secret knowledge
comes to me in the dusk
showed me the river
I saw me
