Skin peeling, eye water, the chemical shield All this will retire one day when I’m healed And the folks I admire will admire me If I write a good song and sing it perfectly My lining sheds soundly the moon it is whole In the safest of seasons for out of control I can even be stoic or quietly doubt I just hope you’ll take your shovels and goggles out Convex and tender, resolved to abuse Rain soaks my foundation with holes in my shoes Dear in the headlights, full belly and glass I have got sleepy jitters and jerks to surpass I know I’ll be humbled and grateful one day For the space I create between each vertebrae I can breathe with the bigger breath, transcend my fears But sometimes my backbone fully disappears Wide awake, trains coming less frequently Bane of existence, physical urgency Seems I’m always instigating the high The music I dance to my favorite lullaby

It’s that devil on your shoulder Typical borderline friend Brings you lovely divine play time Leaves you fooled it’s true in the end It’s a choice for you Although you do not know why And how many times my friend until you truly try Your third eye is wide with wonder You read signals and signs Walk with purpose and smiles Humbled squared here in hunger square But this leads to where? Never been in love and comfort is your pleasure Well you wash him off your body Break a leg to affirm the new Being called to service with no follow through Well it beats at your heart an tears at your glow and your soul! And though you’re leaving again your broken ground here’s still a piece of our whole Just ask us for the vouchers There is still a chance to readjust Broken from resigned relapses You’re now above the clouds Just reach out to us for all the validation Well you Wish and wash it out You Fill up your whole day And don’t forget you used to hide so they say

sweet liquid spread of containers daughter meet my teacher such pressure, such pressure, such pleasure you exist liminality is where I seem to be I immerse myself in its beauty And I never feel so lonesome as I do upon return And I loathe the way you tell me that I need to read and learn These things that we do, things that we do We’re shaking our fears and breaking the others And we’ll laugh while we last if we’re lucky Slow gutsy speech and a dull buzz Sympathetic stranger The whistles, the bus rides, the sand between my toes Checking things off lists that you’d advocate for Sometimes you’ll give more than a dead stare And I never feel so lonesome as I do upon return And I loathe the way you tell me that I need to read and learn You may scare away but you might as well say May scare away but you might as well say it But don’t you be hoping he’ll want it from you someday These things that we do, things that we do We’re shaking our fears and breaking the others And we’ll laugh while we last if we’re lucky

i dance while i play the band how they stare my eyes on your chest and on his eyes i’m keeping tough times i hope that you care i want you to be the one to reach out it happened again, the fall to the womb now i’ve got acres to fuck up some more and this kind of bitterness, this kind of crushed all the time’s just another demonstration and i’m losing steam i’m losing material i’m framing things in catastrophe just sometimes when i’m all alone and bleeding i dance while i play the band how they stare all of my shade is drifting away so many treats, so little time as grand as the power i grant them

Consortium 03:10
Condor swirving in a new body can hold attention, implant a thought like your knife-sharpener in our hands but i’ll do what i want do do what was profound about it to you? we all want to know who’s gonna draw it out now for you, now that i’m gone? well the lake salt draws it out in eye, in skin, in crown he swings me around and they instantly surface ambidextrous, sharp as a string tip help me get back up on top of my game with a small exercise for my brain but i’ll do what i want to do what made the conversation rich? we all want to know if you choose to keep my high regard, you’d give details but sometime months ago, new body came to know that folks like us lose sight when we’re lost in the blankets

there's another story buried in each one we hear we could cry a river from images made crystal clear by bullet point poetry or bruises and secrecy and sometimes i mimmick with success and sometimes i just want to undress you for the sake of time passions need to fight and the ones disguised as worthy win the fight with each rebirth they keep on preventing, they ruin my chances of you knowing me as who i want to be we listen to bird songs like the songs inside our brains and when it's time to keep one that melody flows through our veins and one of my mamas said to pick from the flower bed she said change is slow and time has shown that farthest left is a circle and you and me, we're smoothly blended right now let clear even waves drown it out let clear even waves fill it in let clear even waves take the cake and my breath away

voices of my lovers follow suit strong moon, strong season sometimes diving in is just too hard with voices of reason i want to wake to the sound of your breath be tangled in the visions in your head in your head i had to test the waters more willing than the others but then i just want more the same or something more something more this may be really all he thinks i am a bundle of potential cuz i’m back with my back against the fire with half empty hands full i’m intrigued by the films in your mind’s eye i want to watch while i lay with my friend with my friend i had to test the waters more willing than the others but then i just want more the same or something more something more voices of my lovers follow suit strong moon, strong season

Come O Come 03:24
Come O Come emanuel come o come, expose my kind misgivings muscles remember how to find safe havens structures made of haze and sunny melting patches come o come you've got the faith and stamina virgining jump starts and sentimental sources small spoons for small dignity the need to change locations his is a custom to take off to other towns amazing you asked i poke ever so slightly thank you for asking, and coming when i call come o come plain or less domestic my calluses seem to be more than remedial lucky to crave it and sometimes it's solemn nothing for granted and they come when you call 'em lucky to crave it and sometimes it's solemn nothing for granted and they come when you call 'em
