The Opal is a Nocturnal Conversation
Amid the hairline of soft curls
An opal earring dangles from the globe of her face
The gemstone is a midnight conversation
And we keep the windows closed against the wildfire smoke

An opal earring dangles from the globe of her face
The color changes, catching gulps from the outside lights
And we keep the windows closed against the wildfire smoke
The fire is raw against the black hills

The color changes, catching gulps from the outside lights
Downtown will be gone in the morning
The fire is raw against the black hills
Creeping closer, we close our eyes and try to sleep

Downtown will be gone in the morning
The gemstone is a midnight conversation
Creeping closer, we close our eyes and try to sleep
Amid the hairline of soft curls.
