Track Name: Stillicide
I have no dreams
A tree fell and crushed the taut strings
Outside the gate
A figure at the same place
Picks at the tar and waits for my house
His gasping question
How long will you survive?
After rain stillicide drips from the roof
Into his old tin cans
I don’t see where he takes water
A paste, crushed leaves and spit
Is brought out
And painted on him, straining
I have no dreams
From the roof I hear him scream
The fishing lines that held me up
Are caught under the tree
I hope it rains enough to rot it quickly
Track Name: Heat From Other Days
I took the lower path
Full of pellets, unresolved
To avoid the lighted room under the lake
I remember at first
The tilted blue oceans of the valley
As evening took the color from the weeds
I tried to keep the bread and water face
From showing on the mountain
Many years inside the lighted room
A lacerated grin hung from my jaw
Complicated panes of glass
And passing shoulders locked me in
When I was old enough
I pushed aside a tile
And snaked through the cold muck
Into the vast and brittle day
I took the lower path
Full of pellets, unresolved
And I let the heat from other days become my fire
