Everything casts a shadow Clasped hands Empty bottles Cocaine on a glass table A family standing by a grave I destroy everything that comes within arms reach
Black ocean froths Torrent falls rushing Out of golden mouths Forever swallowing teeth And all silent at the gate Before the throat Lone French horn Sounds across the water Child cradles the father Blank light Enveloped by the tongue Tastes of love Lapped from the floor
Two Dogs 02:01
Down the street a dog barks The same as the dog barking nearer to me But I heard the other first One is fenced in by a tall gate The other approaches in the seat of a white car They hear each other for a moment before moving on And I envision a conversation between the two But there is no significance One heard the other and grew agitated The other was hungry I wanted one to say to a brother of his That he was not yet at peace That he was sleeping in the home of an animal unlike himself
L'Acéphale 04:00
Framed in dull grey against the sliding door Visions of himself pinned against the cement wall Cigarette stamped out on her forearm Clutched at the red light inside of exit signs Yawn of unused stairwells constantly hummed The dark murk of summer, thick nights A damp bed-sheet spread across the whole of a city And out in the lightless space between streets He vomits forth a sword Protruding from his gaped mouth And swung in a wide arc They laid her in the river flowing with perfume and wine Where the estuary leads To the shore composed of them Headless, somber, elegant
