i wanted to say: "why the long face?"

sparrow, perch and play songs of long face
burro, buck and bray songs of long face!
sing: i will swallow your sadness and eat your cold clay
just to lift your long face

and though it may be madness, i will take to the grave
your precious long face
and though our bones they may break, and our souls separate
- why the long face?
and though our bodies recoil from the grip of the soil
- why the long face?
