Track Name: Doubt
so this is what alone sounds like
and now i'm trying to expel you
i hear a cough
i hope it's yours
but it's not
and now the window never opens
and the room in which we used to lay is suddenly hot
and now i have two blankets, but i don't need them
and the kittens cry and cry and they rub your flannel raw
i guess now you're free
the way you didn't want to be
i hope that i've not made a mistake
but when i think of your eyes i cry
and now you're off in the center of the city with your friends tonight
Track Name: Dirty May, 2009
my guts are in a figure eight
as i fall away
your hand is on my leg
as your face, it fades away
fire in your temper's furnace
glows on your salty face
happy birthday, time, my dear
your day to shine is grey
and the gap
between your bodies will close
i'll stay away
my hands will fold
and i'll continue to slip between the cracks in your fingers like i did so many months before my body was swallowed whole by the hole new york made in my heart that was gaping and bleeding for you
Track Name: Fire Arms
westward the sky set aflame
as the last gasp of warmth was breathed by the dying day
our cheeks reflected rosy against the sky
and the horizon lay broken as a feast before our eyes
but my antlers will become apparent
as the jealousy will infect the meat adorning our bones
our eyes will remain evasive
i guess i'll only know your shape when my eyes are closed
in the dark you couldn't see it
but as my bones almost met your healthy body at the knee
my rosy cheeks weren't just reflections
and the hairs on my arms fought to stand up through my fleece
that night the sky seemed closer than ever
and the constellations cried hot streams of momentary light
but i was warm inside our secrets
as our breath cut hotly through that cold november night
and i'll stay warm inside those secrets
and my palms will perspire when i think about your eyes
but my antlers will become apparent
as the jealousy will infect the marrow deep inside our bones
our eyes will remain evasive
i guess i'll only know your shape when my eyes are closed
Track Name: Xerostomia
body wrapped in blackened cloth
amidst the greenery
where we walked like we were the gods
our bodies will blend in the blue of the bending sky
andromeda, you're finding your face in so many puddles of mine
your thoughts have become all tainted and blistered
swollen and growing inside your mind
and i'm still naked and shivering
flailing for your body heat
our bodies will blend in the blue of the bending sky
andromeda, you're finding your face in so many puddles of mine
