Let Us Run with Peace Beats

O’ good woman (3) Where’s your head gone (4) Rolling around in other men’s beds, huh? (7) Look what I found (4) Your baggage unbound (3) Should I refold the linen wraps on the ground? (9) Appease your lease (3) Good woman, good grief (4) Where did I go wrong? (5) Your skin is weathered (4) Browning and drowned (3) Isn’t the floor quite cold down there? (7) Forget me not (3) Your mother’s wise whispers (4) Surely she has prepared a house for you here? (9) You are almost grown (4) Full of bones (3) Might your feet fall near? (5) Fatherless and shy (3) Teeth bittered and loose (4) Tell me, does he listen to you? (7) Don’t untie Yesterday’s shoes (4) Let her walk (3) If you ran bare wouldn’t they sit and stare? (9) Bawdied and wet (3) Chugging canines underneath us (4) Are we lost in roots? (5) Let us play there (4) Before they barter (3) For without tufts where can we sail? (7) Lest we call (3) Upon the one exalted (4) Do you sleep with my prayers in your window? (9) Perhaps on the streets (4) Where you dream (3) Which one hooded her hair? (5)
