Track Name: As I Wipe My Chin
As I Wipe My Chin

A rush
of confused
fists and words
mostly missed

quick chaos
by a shattering
random wetness
and scraping
of old chair legs
over wood

and barrels
out the door
in one sloppy
Track Name: The Moon Leads
The Moon Leads

We’re all familiar with the demons
at the end of the road

their sinful stink
toxic in everything.

We find ourselves following the

those electric bits of joy

nighttime works of art

shaped like eyes and fangs.
Track Name: Night Birds
Night Birds

These roads are just branches
From which the night birds sing
Some of them fall
Some of them have wings

this year was a decade
these bottles are fists
this town is an anchor
& I’m always adrift

this place is a forest
its leaves have been shed
uneven ground burning
last night hangs overhead

we’re running in circles
choking on dust
our memories fading
or turning to rust

these roads are dead branches
those night birds wont sing
most of them fall
but some of them have wings
