still the plum

my plum
she makes the brandy
that I love
stilled the night
stilled the day
stilled into brown
then into white and I say
my plum
she makes the brandy
that I love

blood plum
blue plum
red flesh
white flesh
try to get some flavour
from the stone
my plum she is so sweet
I lie alone

my plum
she drips white fire
into the jug
run all night
run all day
run from the brown
run to the white and I say
my plum
she drips white fire
into a jug
