Thaw

Antenna

All we thought we knew were wrong
And we struggle to hold on to

Our land and our life
But it’s looking a bit difficult now

All we thought we knew were wrong
The sun grows weaker and the night will be long

And the only thing ‘round here
Is the wastness of our sphere

Alone Into Eternity

Somewhere beneath the light
That shimmers in the night
Fighting their way
Through a landscape
Barren
Cold
A landscape scarse and old
A mystery untold What happened
To these people

Noone’s been more alone
Than you before your death
Frostbitten feet
In the darkness
In defeat
Writing notes before your sleep
A memory to keep
In the frozen distant

Forever
By the shore
Where oscillating pack ice
Gently flows
On and on
The frozen rivers
Cuts through mountains
Calves and thaw away
Changing seasons
Endless winters
Melt

Ebb and Flow

Watch it sink
As the sound drains
When it sets
Chop a hole
Climb inside
The hidden world
Under the snow
Ebb and flow

Time is short
Light is scarce
Turquise glow
Marine snow
Ephemeral hunt
Blue mussel yield
Find your way out
Once more concealed

Tupilaq

Reindeer antler
Paw from fox
Claw from grouse
Beak from gull
Baby skull
Moss and leather straps
Semen from the man
Who did me
Wrong

Invisible creature
Swim away
Do your deed
And perish

Qivitoq - The Fell Walker

They blamed you for
A futile hunt
Blamed you for
Everything gone wrong
It became a part of you
The perfect outcast
A taboo

Leaving everyone behind
Into the fells you have resigned
You became a part of it
Wandering off with no regret

I’ll take you if you come for me
I’m here and don’t want company
I shift my shape and walk the fell
Your settlement I bid farewell

I’ll take you if you come for me
I’m here and don’t want company
I shift my shape and walk the fell
Your settlement can go to hell
