'98 - '01 01:55
discharge patch to the denim black charcoal-coded dull tag five six eight dulls the blade you left but you should have stayed fiery minds seemed to glare alike light bulb above smouldered bright thoughts cradled in vitro grail sputtered out when tungsten failed
Wicker Bar 02:37
i thought about the wicker bar heavy rain i pine for used to set my birthday as my PIN red string, cork board, tacks: it's the place i'm in i thought about the school's rules of which i had no clue: to cross my legs when i sat down and move across the hallway when september comes around it came around: "can i please come around?" and i thought about that painting primary colours splashed over corrugated card it looked quite hard and i thought about my bust mitral valve it pumps forty-two million times, year round and i suppose i broke my heart in a literal sense back row kings, benched and i wondered if i still had the chance to spout my defiance to the skies dukakis tanked; lost track and tread i was broke but i'm on the mend the shape i'll leave when i'm gone will not stand without me that empty shell will collapse on itself
'80 - '88 04:38
those door slams at night can happen as often as they like but they'll never sound alright two rooms away, flinching under duvet you tested my strength with curtain rail held across the breadth of my chest lion plays tamer, leisure plays terror, armed with furniture lightyears from here your voice will ring fear the same booming i hear for long i've set furlongs of distance between what i say i what i mean mother took the flak: queen's coronary crack. always a matter of time until things aren't fine testing the towing lines bridal breaks, basket takes weight, shackle aches.
please send a communique my way cheetah always cheats and leads her astray i'm an ashtray for your wordplay and these loose ends turn me loose onto a freeway dodging people, frogger leaper i know asking too much to be your keeper lost light bar paces up and down that same street tank running on EMT, panzer's buttoned up guarantee scrolling over your demise with a "wish you were here" sprawled across my mind i watched through flickering blinds
