Track Name: metamorphic moon
I reach out to touch the moon
and now there is nothing
but the moon;
no hands to touch,
no eyes to devour,
only a tarnished flower
torn from a dream.

Each breath of memory;
cold dead flowers
floating in a stream.

I reach out to touch the moon,
I sever the whiteness from its stem

in a soundless meadow
buried in snow,
I carry your flower
into the void
Track Name: a soft prenatal landscape
love is a flower
dissolving in time-

inside your body I am warm again
inside the uterus I am undivided & entire

crawling through soft celestial lining
It is cold as life begins
naked and shivering
in the cold, wet grass
I am the wounded bird
seeking to return
to your soft, prenatal landscape

buried in the cold valley of your thighs,
I fail at loving you

the flower blooms & then dies
Track Name: amphetamines x ad infinitum
crush up the pill
insufflate the hollowness

drown in the mirror
compute the lies
drink of the drugs
corrode the shrine

drown
drown
drown
Track Name: reptilian love
cannibal
cannibal
thirst, feed

cannibal
cannibal
love,
to wither
the sacred bloom

thirst,
the goddess
bearing flowers
of the cosmic womb

feed,
the conception of your self image

thirst,
the deflowering of meaning

love,
the birth of the grotesque

feed upon the carcass of the wilted bloom

undress the virgin
deflower her youth

undress the virgin
plant the dead flowers
in her womb

witness the rapture
of a rotting shrine

cannibal
cannibal
cannibal
cannibal
Track Name: interlude
underneath the running faucet,
she held the universe-

to invent flesh:
warm breasts,
a patch of seaweed,
a seashell in the hollowness

she held her bones
against the emptiness

to dissolve quietly,
lapping persona
from her hands,
craving flesh
and flower,

a white orchid blossoms
beside the urinal-

like soft flesh melting
beside her ashcan harbor,
flowers from an ashtray bloom
beside the swan wrapped in cellophane,
and like darkness tortures a flower,
treetops sway and then nothing
Track Name: underneath the plastic rainbow (perpetually bludgeoned by unicornz)
from within the lightless cove, a memory
softly melding into formlessness;

internal oceans intersect,
seeping into synapse,
as I caress
the wounded
antelope eyes,
we will undress
hallucinatory shapes,
as we make love upon
the moth-eaten mattress

from the soil of this consecrated touch
coalescent flowers bloom,
amidst the star speckled beauty of impermanence
disembodied spirits intertwine,
beneath the wilted astral foliage
we will harbor withered fragments of a momentary glimpse
where the synapse and the spark converge
we will undress-

when you are sleeping
still the wires are attached

from within the lightless cove, a memory,
buried in the garden of our childish thoughtlessness
wet petals wither
in absentia
Track Name: cellophane swan
underneath the running faucet,
she held the universe within,
to invent the flesh of meaning,
to dissolve into the soil--

warm breasts,
a patch of seaweed,
a seashell in the
hollowness--

Like soft flesh,
melting beside
ashcan harbor

flowers from an ashtray bloom
beside the swan wrapped in cellophane

and like darkness tortures a flower
treetops sway

and like darkness tortures a flower
treetops sway

and like darkness tortures a flower
treetops sway

and like darkness tortures a flower
treetops sway...
