Kate Tempest – Breaks

So here is our moment, frozen
We’ve seen our seven unmoving
In their lonely homes
It’s been 4: 18 and dawn’s still hours off yet
My God and they are cold and listless
Not quite sure that they exist
Here in this moment, slow and viscous
Lips haunted by the ghosts of kisses
There is the endless saturation of the days
And here they are
There is nothing moving but their breath
But watch now
As the breaking storm outside brings this moment into action
The sky cracks into a wild-mouthed grin
And unleashes all the water that it’s carried
