1.
here i stand cleansed of anxiety open my arms to a sky full of stars the grip of your gaze has weakened and crumbled and now i can see you the self loathing chaser you are voices carry from down the stairs calling out the name that you gave me i am awakened from a dream where you called me the name i have given myself globalized discomfort and inflammation can’t fit the bill of your expectation
2.
for i can be to you now as i have always been the chemical imbalance has been corrected you can loosen your grip from around your keys you can loosen your grip for me and when i walk behind you on the street at night there is no need to look over your shoulder i am here i am here i am here gentle and harmless my stature and my shadow both are rounded and becoming for i can be to you now as i have always been
3.
ACID 02:10
never took a breath didn’t keep my lungs for long ribs exposed and bare under this mask i’m innocent i swear ignore me one more time i dare you wouldn’t understand leave me on the side of the road, force me to blend into your grays and blacks. dead is how you need me to “keep the peace” with the sun like acid, soon even my ribs will be gone, nothing will be left, you’ll scrape me off hit me with your fucking car, it’s just what i need
4.
strap me in sandbags weigh me down even out the odds ski mask and a baggy sweatshirt radio between my ears even out the odds why don’t you recognize me? why can’t you recognize me? too pretty too gay too fucking fabulous had to tie me down blanching out my color end the odds destroy the moon let the musicians play and scream bleed the sand from my neck
5.
THE RIFT 02:13
you awoke unrecognizable i couldn’t recognize you your edges filed to points your back turned you sprung up from the ground a burning bush earth left barren morning light leaking slow no rain here nothing grows morning light i drive home your shadow your shadow all possible routes exhausted our home uninhabitable paint stripped from its walls flooded out from the inside
6.
may the soot on my doorstep never see itself clean may habits carried over never work to humble or concede white noise to slow my brain down lull this colic baby to sleep surrounded when i wake up sunlight leaking from all angles we could be deathless forever siblings surviving together bodies formless and untethered we could be deathless forever
7.
GIRDERS 03:25
Lay me on an anvil; O God Beat and hammer me into a crowbar Let me pry loose old walls lift and loosen old foundations smash in windows crack open skulls tear out sinks rip up flooring make use of my simple shape make use of my great weight Lay me on an anvil, O God beat me and hammer into a iron mace let my spikes impale tires and flesh topple walls and tire arms use brute force to turn shields into splitters armor into scrap metal and veins into pools demand of me what you will use me the best you can Lay me on an anvil, O God Beat me and hammer me into a steel spike Drive me into the girders mass produce me, use me, waste me erect more and more, flea higher and higher i am here to support and i am here to ascend let the workers who hold me know what i am let the architects know my power lay me on an anvil, O god beat Me and hammer Me in a mighty steel spike Drive me into the girders that hold a skyscraper together Take red-hot rivets fasten me into the central girders I am the great nail holding a skyscraper through blue nights into white stars let me be the great nail holding a skyscraper together
8.
RAFTERS 01:55
caught from the wrong angle again image of the self in a compacted form days spent feeling lighter fallen out of their rotation caught from the wrong angle find myself no longer graceful stare straight ahead (pearly linoleum) stare straight ahead (pearly linoleum) nobody to celebrate and nothing to claim stare straight ahead
9.
say you’ll meet me there even though i’ve been away i still feel you sometimes like a chill some like a hand on the small of my back still all i can offer my ambivalent devotion if you watch over this body will you watch over my body stark defiance in the face of god trembling bodies in the face of god dancing freely in the face of god venerated in the face of god hedonistic in the face of god deprivation in the face of god fallow, fertile in the face of god chemically sterile in the face of god screaming colors in the face of god drained of spirit in the face of god failing body in the face of god undistracted in the face of god brash irreverence in the face of god beg forgiveness in the face of god feel no comfort in the face of god taking solace in the face of god
10.
all your development is a stain on this earth as the plastic architecture rises stale from its foundation as if in defiance of autonomy a rich, once fertile soil gives its way to your disruption all your rooftops are a blemish on our skyline your village could never raise a child twelve foot tall bay windows with a view that looks a mirror your facade begs for a flame we exist in opposition to your homogenization in our shades of screaming color showing fearlessly our faces meeting stoically your gaze as we reach out to each other you will never break the chain all your settlements will suffer
