Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

My lust, your exhaust


her conversational lover
pulled the winter overlap
he pulled it ever so very hard

she reached for lighters made of glass
they smoked like dancers
engaged in pirouettes

what happens to skin
does it remember your hands
who does its accounting
who keeps it from running away?

she tossed her head aside
blue smoke bowed deeply
that was when her lips made 
him quiver
her red lips
this frozen bronco
he was shaking
he shook away the night

Saline solution


it was back in autumn when the leaves, they all fell down
winter was on its way, the new sheriff in the town
what to do with all the tears that widows deigned to shed?
put them in a mason jar and pour them when they're dead

Bring us more opium


hold our hand, we're bombing the natives
jack us off, back at the base
say a prayer before the planes take off
let's wipe our asses and get out of this place

i saw the mountains high above the indus
the gods no longer called the place home
we traded rifles with a wandering prophet
he wore his sandals like they do in rome

(chorus)
we're here, right now
in the daylight
no prayer, no separation
no more crying in the night
we got a name for weirdos like you
we got a reason to fight

fuckin' a, the land is 'a plenty
we can't see to the margin beyond
we were driving to the edge of the desert
we were shooting the shadows that hound us along

(chorus)
we're here, right now
in the daylight
no prayer, no separation
no more crying in the night
we got a name for weirdos like you
we got a reason to fight
