Horizon 03:33
you don't have to close the door on what you've built around me the way your hand grips the ribcage, the baluster your industrious finger under shoulder blade the pullbar slips the tongue into groove the back. the joist. the hot horizon. the back. a wall plumbed. hot sun rising. to feel this way about anyone. to feel this way about you. a diligent shoulder wrenched by the fear of losing years of hard labor. the back. the joist. the hot horizon. the back. a wall plumbed. hot sun rising.

Wild Horses 03:20
you were uneasy with the way the prairies leaned into the evenings. and i had to rock you all night and tell you everything would be alright. when we saw the wild horses you were inconsolable. oh what unholiness, to rush toward your impermanence. oh what bliss, to run like this. you were uneasy with the way the prairies leaned into the evenings. and i had to rock you all night and tell you everything would be alright while my heart raced wildly toward nothing.

Work 02:55
they're after us one by one. they're after us. let them in. and a life to make a living isn't living it's just giving and giving to nothing at all. i'm just killing time forgive me, Eternity, i've got a few things on my mind. let them in. and how can i feel you when i can't even feel my own goddamn hands? when i try to stop moving i'm caught up in the tide gasping, wrestling with the sand. let them in.

nothing ever comes out right, not even the moon. when i call to you and you don't answer, why do i bother? when nothing ever comes out right, not even the moon. is it some particular bone? or a stain? or an omen? it's the moon, Alex. go to bed. but how can i sleep when the picnic's just begun? flowers are stinging the bees, an old woman is gnawing on her hands again. nothing ever comes out right, not even the moon. not even the breeze in the poplar trees, blood in the garlic, breeze in the poplars, these things unsaid. nothing ever comes out right, not even the moon.

Tilt 03:15
oh how the time moves slowly on the lazy afternoons we're dizzy. picking flowers for our friends. some roses for you -- speak the language. some rue for you and some for me, too. save some, save some for Ophelia. who do you think you are bathing yourself in river water? save some for Ophelia. oh how the time moves on the lazy afternoons. we're joyful, dizzy. we are joyful, dizzy like a tilt-a-whirl.

Body Heat 03:29
I'm tired of trying to convince myself I'm anything more interesting than body heat. Heat lightning. The tragedies in the birdbath, and the moonlight, the moonlight, the moonlight. It's so boring. Heat lightning.
7.
Guilt 02:59
Oh how guilt floats belly-up like a dead fish. And warm, its belly spills in my hand. But we don't have a word for this. We all come in swimming. And we all go on swimming.

Eurydice 04:35
it was here, in summer, when the grass was still grass, before the fawns could hear the dark hum of death. my feet consumed by the writhing evils that pierce the sole and sieze the bone. every night it's a deadly fever and if i am taken like eurydice, if you can't pull me from this hell, you'll have to drag the death out of me. it was here in summer, when the grass was still grass, before the moan of the meadow inverted. every night it's a deadly fever and if i am taken like eurydice, if you can't pull me from this hell, you'll have to drag the death out of me. walk with your back to me. don't turn around, i'm eurydice. if you can't cure me of this fever you'll have to drag the death out of me.
9.
Matador 03:28
It's not the red. I can't see it. All I see is you. All I've ever seen is you. Since that day by the river when you hooked me like a trout and then gutted me and my wet heart spilled out. Oh, how we dance this cruel dance! My shoulders lanced by your barbed affection. Horns knocking around in every direction. All my ardor and your cruelty waltz together dutifully. So why now do you hesitate while I wheeze and bray? Why now do you stay? What's the matter, matador? What's the matter, my sweet matador? Finish me. So I can get some sleep. Finish me. Finish me.

Sediment 03:07
You came here as sediment. So settle down, settle down. You can't stop the rain from dragging the current astray.
