Track Name: Molotov
We had demands
and you
had your chance.

In the same forty ounce
I emptied out:

camphor
diesel
soaked rag

a glass-belly song-full
toss it and duck.
Track Name: Chiburi
“Use your words kid”
I tried that
but not one
Would work

[Head split on bamboo floor]
Tirade, kill them all.
Glass jaws, all of you.
[Chiburi]

It wasn’t just the backroom cries
it-was-the-witness you made of me
curse the gods that I survived
Do it now. Or should I.
Take one last breath.
Track Name: Orphan
They say she had chains
wrapped around her neck
when they pulled her out
from the well.

How long
was she down there?

How did
she survive?

Mouth full of stars,
memory spare her now.

No one can keep her safe from
the day she remembers
her birth from algae.

Only she can keep on
surviving, surviving.
Track Name: Ellipses
There's
no
after,
just this.

There's
no
ellipses.

Nothing
unsaid.

Don’t think
I’ll leave you

Alive
though half-dead

Not that it’s instant
Not that’s it’s lights out

But taste
the edge of my blade

No judge
denies
paradise

‘cause
there's none
just mouthfuls of dirt.
Track Name: Notch
Up my sleeve you will see
there's a notch--each body...

I've crossed out your name before.

There's no way out.

I'm no kid now--
I'm the mastermind,
I'm a cold case,
I'm on high.

Down, down.
Yea we go down.
I can’t wait

Count all the stand-ins as
in the way.

You rough draft, (run-on, error)

I'll cross you out.
Track Name: Siphon
There’s no waking
There’s no half-light
There’s no off-ramp
There’s no morning

Only midnight

Cut the stitches off

My tank, it runs on anything
I siphon off the firmament
and ride off.

Hey rearview,
Why can't you feel this way?
Now you've gone.
Who's driving?

All these pistons in my head,
I'm not sure if I'm already dead.

Anne Sexton in my rearview,
I let the throttle go.
Track Name: Charcoal
I'll kick in the window
I'll turn on the gas

I'll leave no trace,
No nightgowns or photographs

This house it had good bones
from the oldest pines

Flames climb yellowed walls
what was this life of mine

I turned to charcoal

Long ago
You with the kerosene hands.

You brought the war home

Veteran
Now you've made one of me.

Graft
me a new face
Restore
what was behind.

Can you hear me?
I'll never put you out.

This is the judgement
That I have cast down
Track Name: Mobius
Windows down,
I’m on the mobius,
driving through the night.

Drag your body,
you’re my Hector now,
a dying satellite,

til you smithereen
to nothing.
