The Dead Man Must Wait / Tristan Foster

Like a dove
Like a demon
Or a collared dove
The Dead Man must wait
For one or another god to set aside her tea
Call him forward
Call out the name he had when alive yes, you
To say enough
Enough of this, Dead Man
Wring the water from your lungs
So you can breathe again
