The Carpenter’s Daughter’s Song

by Willow Germs

I tried to make a home
Out of you. I tried
but I didn’t realize
I’d have to gut you first

Out of you, I tried
To build a house
I’d have. To gut you first
Would take more time than I took

To build a house
Takes patience and planning, it
Would take more time than I took
To see at what was in me

It takes patience and planning
I tried to make a home
To see what was in me
But I didn’t realize
