I. RISE

Rise up from the earth

under these weakening walls

and cracked foundation.

Sweat out the tides of poison

Reach for the cleansing fire.

II. STRENGTH

Time to cross over.

You have the strength to do this.

Fill your hands with blood.

Fill your eyes with blinding light.

Take the step to the next world.

III. PULL

Iron in the veins

Copper circle round the head

Toes curled in the dirt

Become visible again.

Stand with us, pull down the sky.

IV. FAITH

Awake in blue light.

Ashes on the wind send word;

our faith burns again.

Fires underneath the Earth

warm and stir old stillnesses.

V. BORDER

Fire comes from us,

from memories of us;

our silent burning,

our crossings of the Border

an opening of the hand.

VI. OATH

You’ve taken the oath,

folded reeds around your wrist,

dreams given to Wind.

Sand blown from the road to form

clouds in the eyes of the state.

VII. REMNANTS

Gold light through the door

falls on a broken tile.

Remnants from an age

when skies fell down with the force

of an invisible sea.

VIII. NIGHT

This is no true world;

we are layers of shadow,

hardened into glass.

We wait for the night to come,

moonlight melt us into one.

IX. FATE

There is no time here,

it is distance that pulls us

outward to our fate.

As flowers fall from our hand,

the fires rise to meet us.

X. DRIFT

When the rains come down

the rivers slip from their clothes

and run through the streets.

Currents draw the map again,

and new earth fills our fingers.
