On A Pier
(Fiona MacGillivray © Cabot Trail Music, SOCAN)

An original song by Fiona: “I lost hold of your heart like a fish on a pier/And it slipped away into the sea./But if just for tonight won’t you bring me a scale/To crush into powder and dust like a veil/Of your presence and sharp souvenirs./And I’d spread it like spice on my bed in my cell,/All over my pillow and under my sheets,/And I’d float into sleep to the salt in your smell/ Of your brine and a broken man’s tears./And I know what a wonderful sleep I would get/With the rocks of my deck and a fish in my net,/And a lathering moon like a man in a sweat/With your brine and a broken man’s tears.”
