Itís my half that is burning. .
I began in a half
And hanging gardens over your head
In my half burned half's
Creates myths 

I began in a half
In a half I began
In a half
In aÖ

And half the earth 
Burns in me to the end
It is my half that is burning
From the gardens of beginning in a half
To the earth burned of
I fell down
And the sky
On shoulders of my half
Burns slowly

Itís my half that is burning

The name of sky I burned by
And the earth
The name of the town
The name of me
The name of you 
The name of every poem in the world
I burned by to my half

Itís my half that is burning

I began in a half
And my hanging half
In the gardens over your head
Is drifting
And my hanging half
Is drifting
And my hanging half
And my half
And half
