Once in my life, came a heat across my chest:
I dropped everything and followed

her laughing fire, fanning west
through the grassland
and up into the foothills,
the massifs breathing into midday,
where we lay down
and wept for joy.

I want to tell you that whatever it is,
it is possible.

Sky-blue, she steps out
onto the breezy, old front porch
where I hang my tacky thoughts to dry,
beaming quietly over me.
She’s beaming right through
the anvils of the afternoon—

Damon Waitkus - lead and backing vocals, mandolin, electric, acoustic, and baritone guitars, piano, percussion
Jason Hoopes - bass
Jordan Glenn - drums
Thea Kelley - backing vocals
