lyrics

a low hum
small buzz
the language of insects
claiming to be passionately in love

an air conditioner
an idling car's radiator
spitting water through the grille

and I don't think about it anymore
because you can't
you won't
talk about it

so we're shrugging it all off our backs and our shoulders
and walking out into the passionate summer heat
causing ripples off of the concrete street
the gravel ground

and what can we see in the cicadas' beating wings
transparent in light

maybe in thirteen years
we'll forget about it all
