AT first I suspected something—
She acted so calm and absent-minded.
And one day I heard the back door shut,
As I entered the front, and I saw him slink
Back of the smokehouse into the lot,
And run across the field.
And I meant to kill him on sight.
But that day, walking near Fourth Bridge,
Without a stick or a stone at hand,
All of a sudden I saw him standing,
Scared to death, holding his rabbits,
And all I could say was, “Don’t, Don’t, Don’t,”
As he aimed and fired at my heart.
Track Name: HELOTRY / FREEDOM OF THE SEAS
desperate was the day
when this was all i had.
she said, "i feel a lack;
this is not fun:
to see you unfold
in the face of the drill.
"you stink like a skunk,
& drip with the funk
of your lie."
& what once was small
& swaddles me still.
the sores of the mouth,
birthing our debt,
cut off my thumbs.
to leave this regret,
with no one around;
would your dad be able to?
& you, you'll be fine, dear,
&sweet smelling ass.
& i, i will be the one begging:
in sweet-seeping pus,
in breath-taking pain,
in bastard old age.
