We Walk As We Talk

We walk as we talk, as we conquer the night

the stars as they shimmer so lonesome and bright

they bless us obtusely, so slender and slight

we’re calm as two dogs as we conquer the night

We walk as we talk, as we conquer the night

our ankles are burning, and blazing with fright

the wind as it moves, suspends its delight

we’re hungry and proud as we move out of sight

We walk as we talk, as we conquer the night

we follow the storm, and we gather the light

the brothels are empty and the sidewalks are bright

as we enter the silence we threaten the night

We walk as we talk, as we conquer the night

the feathers that move, surround us with might

the shadows that grove are healthy and tight

we kneel as we gather the shimmering light
