the sunlight falls like fog
we watch it shift and shake
you stand and it pools at your feet
I'm having a hard time seeing you

you laugh and glimmer and gleam
you burn and break up
a ghost in the sunlight

the canyon walls are hollow
and your dress is a prism in the billow and brume
the sandstone shivers and shines
like the mirror you hung on our wall

you step off of the earth and into the water
and your world begins to move
like a dog's breath or a calm sea
the waves too gentle to resist
too gentle to resist
