In regard to me, in regard to us
So it possesses the burden of the blood
Who put her on the floor?
The preparation of her body
Was a charitable event
Her edges would brighten
Her father placed her there
Nearest to the grave
Between the blankets being fathers
Between the fathers being graves
It was a charitable event
She looks happy smiling iridescent
Are my legs shut?
Is the music still on?
