Track Name: we've
please don't ask me to dance with you
let's go for a walk if you want to move
my portrait's now hot blue, so
drip, drip, drop
take your boots off

enter deeply into an unsigned contract with someone and be surprised when they break it right through, so
jump, skip, hop
we don't have to talk

thine own truths are yours and yours and yours
sorry if i've changed your yours
yours and yours and yours

please don't ask me to dance with you
let's go for a walk if you want to move
Track Name: aquecuts
the other day i came upon a cocoon
and poked at it with my baby finger
to see if i
could hear the secret of gettin' by

i kept it all, i hoarded it
to numb the sting of burnin'
at the bottom of the see
it's hurtin'

a butterfly with one wing
a dimpled note, a candy ring
a faux pearl necklace, time itself
my clock is muzzled and i need help

i'm sorry that my open wound
leaked all over your brand new shoes
i never saw it comin'
i never saw you goin'
cyanide in your open eye
open wide, don't you cry
don't you cry
don't you cry

i'll nitpick these prickled specimens
sit alone and be still with them
my thoughts will be a times square ticker
i'll be ok with the remainder
a different sensibility about what is going to be
comb the goose feathers, in the oil's a stir
count the rings in the water
Track Name: remind me
sit down here darlin'
i'll rub your back
and take my words back
put on my sweater
a hole on the shoulder
and my heart's red stains on the sleeves

and keep me company
remind me

hold my hand darlin'
through all the things
that no one else sees
while you are sleepin'
i'll fashion a blanket
out of all that's left of we

and keep me company
remind me
Track Name: weathervane
eas'ly swayed weathervane, commit to a season
auto-cannibalizing winter, even
or stay a featureless face with shiny hair
by which i mean stay right there

i can never not look at the wreck of it
tangled honey-soaked tongues and oxytocin
you'll chant a fickle-tongued tale, a fairytale
of what happens afterwards
of what happens after words

slow motion picture in a theater where my feet stick to the ground

it's like sticking your feet down in the deep
or laughing at god for all to see
or being just one half, then quartering that
until all the lines are flat
Track Name: long slow love's hum
like rubbing moonshine salve
on paper cuts you have
like drownin' in the bath

like stiflin' your laugh
at somebody's wake
you smile when you ache

auto-eater
bottom-feeder
anemone

in the pull
and the slow
of the low

i'll quit biting when you come hum drum
i'll quit humming our long slow love's hum

long slow love's hum
long slow love's hum

like planning for your death
then having no time left
experiments with meth

or hurting yourself
you broke your own heart
went back to the start

cyclical cells
liberty bells
they never were

in the vis-
ceral sense
of the word

i'll quit biting when you come hum drum
i'll quit humming our long slow love's hum

long slow love's hum
long slow love's hum
