Many thanks to my collaborators, Mike Grippi, Christopher Johnedis, Norah Hoover for the words and ideas lifted for this song, and piles of thanks to Adam Lee for the late nights, weird sounds, mad science, and unending enthusiasm. This thing is truly not mine, and it gives me so much hope.

...She's the one I carried my bones to
and built a house that was just a cot
and built a life that was over an hour
and built a castle where no one lives
and built, in the end, a song
to go with the ceremony.

-Anne Sexton, The Interrogation of the Man of Many Hearts
