Friday, Everyone Is My Friend

I know what I have to do and do it. I know what I have to do and do it. But don't know what it is until I’m done. I know it must be rough, you're so much smarter than your friends. Come clean in jokes. Integrity in tennis shoes. Waiting thinking how'd I like to be kept waiting. Territory mutinies horizon. Disease teaches immunity. A promise implied can't be broken. And even now in the sunlight with grapefruit juice and coffee bound and bounded to winter without end would you two like each other or are you too alike? I know what I have to do and do it. I know what I have to do and do it. But don't know what it is until it's done. I’ve been inventing you and continue inventing you. May we all make it home safely. I know it must be rough, you're so much smarter than your friends. Rehearsing disasters and forecasting all your needs. I dance early then got shy and had to go home early. The mirage will fade as it unfolded. The plot's defamed it's own voltage. A promise at the time can't be beat. And even now as the snow is opening it's whole in pieces and wets each grieving hold of last year's trash it's not impossible to think of you thinking of me. Way we all make it home safely.

Wednesday is Vismund Cygnus

The ocean floor is hidden from your viewing lens. A depth perception languished in the night. All my life I’ve been sewing the wounds but the seeds sprout a lachrymal cloud. My nails peel back when the taxidermist ruined goose stepped the freckling impatience. All the brittle tombs, five hundred little q’s. I’m splitting hairs to match the faces. All night long I’ll hunt for you, let me show you what I mean. Now this train don’t lie, an abortion that survived. A lineage of bastard mastication, all the severed proof talons scratch my suite. These are the feathers that replace them. All night I’ll hunt for you, let me show you what I mean. Who do you trust? Will they feed us the womb? Chrome the fetal mirage. Will they feed us the womb? I found the remnants of a crescent fang, it cleaned my wing down to the bone. Umbilical syllables left to decode, there was no cradle. I can taste it, bring me this plague. She took a drink, those nicotine stains on his every word. My scavenger quilt will only hide the truth. Bring me, bring me this plague! I count the days to find what was left behind. Only these names I clutch will lead me to my home. Somehow this river marks a wrinkle hand in mine and everyday that parts the water into two mothers and feathers start to drown the living proof. I can’t remember these lakes of blood wrapped in a blanket. There sweats a cut, who do you trust? Will they feed us the womb? Chrome the fetal mirage. Will they feed us the womb?

Monday is a Requiem

When I met you I was just a kid, hadn’t built up my defenses. So I gave my heart completely, vaseline over the lenses. Memories don’t go away, I remember every day. I never ever stop wondering, wondering if you still think of us. I don’t need a photograph cause you’ve never left my mind, no you’ve never left my mind! I remember feeling like a ship whose captain was too drunk to steer and you watched as I was sinking, waving sadly from the pier. It’s such a burden to carry ’round the vestiges of dead dreams and I don’t want to make a wake out of my life. I just had to let you go.
