back of my palatte
is all aluminum
one hard callous
of valves and atriums
space around it open wide
space around it open wide
felt and mallet to break the tedium

twin machetes
two peaks and tuning pins
Once i’m ready

resolves the heroine

Whatchoo gonna do now that summers gone
once it throws a little ice on
the lion in the fire who be
wailing like a mother with a
lizard tongue never got a sip a water
for weather that’ll follow
and she’ll rearrange the room around the sturm and drom
making eyes at bernadette who gave her
goodness back to jesus
while the kitchen burns a kettle
with a blackened lung
never got a sip a water for the the weather that’ll follow
never got a sip a water
never anythingthing but hollow
never got a sip a water
never got a sip a water sip a

feast the titan
a maws another thing
beasting and biting
a soldier smoldering
I got things I keep inside
I got things I keep in side
wait for lightning
to wipe despite again.
