I am No Innocent Sun

You left me here
at the bottom of the mire
with my eyes open
my hands in a clasp

There is no time
for caution now
you come or pass

Rust suddenly lifting beside me
on a ghost of an afternoon
riding in sorrow to the dock

Far behind
the presence of friends
hanging solitary
once again

Some twisted needle
tells me you sighted me with another
keep my promises to break them

I am no innocent sun
You hurry, rabbit of mine
