lyrics

And for thee my dedications
My bleeding
Gasping, often casually
My flippant cigarette lighting
Cat-walking dangerously
There is an edge
and I shall cross it
For my glamour deserves
soft wounds

I am bosomed and unmoored
A little boat
A child without a sailor's tongue
Seasick and grasping
the bedsides,
swimming with the speckled trout
Oh, provincial stream meanderer
I am lost in the underneath,
thrashing in the netting

I am a remainder, unbalanced
Accounts not yet closed
For sale what will never be sold
And for thee all nervous glances
in ATM mirrors
A red marker
on the binding
of your memory

My frothy sippings,
toothpicking with lavender buds
Yawning through games of Snood, or
quack-quacking my Pringled mouth
Imagining a grandmother
pinching the cheeks of
your ever pudgy face
Your hair cut short
Your days grown long
Your fingers krazy-glued
Her ceramics made whole
"This is the body of Christ"

These are the stop signs
scrivened in delight.
The tread upon lawns
The overgrown brush
The laughter of birds
Oh, street of particular width
and length
May we build our cities
without fear of criminals
or police

I assert my right to silence
