Track Name: Tragedy
I live inside a tragedy
With smoke machines and light technicians

An actor seeking actors
For a short lived fairy vision

I want the curved lens
Of the world pointing this way

I want the curved eye
Of your day looking for me
Track Name: Swallow
Tombs - they are idle, their rumble is birth.
A hiccup in the nothing dark.
Through circle windows, the days dive below the sea.
They land in mouths with such angular teeth.

The season of the sea
The season of the sea is for
endless swallow

I will swallow...
we will swallow...
but the sea
will swallow it all.
Track Name: Triangle
April shaft of electric shake
condensed days of nuclear testing
Underground those two, undersea,
the atoms splitting.

It is always happening somewhere
pedestals and niche, paddles, and holy writ, to replace

Those words seethe
see through


over telephones, over dinner and guns,
over dead bodies, consider beer and ink.
Track Name: Doll to The Pavement
My tongue is dying
On the steps of your doorway
Laying blood down, laying it down
Laying blood down, laying it down

With a canister, I walk the highways
Late in life, with a lazy sun
Late in life, with a lazy sun

Donors unbeknownst
Long drinks with strangers
A rag to my mouth, A doll to the pavement
A rag to my mouth, A doll to the pavement

Red through the skin-melted sunlight
Bones wrapped around doorknobs
An ear-marked orifice plunge
An ear-marked orifice plunge
