Track Name: Shepherd
you just couldn't wait,
so you swallowed your tongues
and made no attempt to look away,
until all the teeth were dust.
no amount of dental records will make for better journalism.
but at what point did it become obvious,
at what point did it become a good idea, or a job well done?
i bet no one fucking blinked.
i bet the children stared.
Track Name: Sparrows
this morning i watched the sparrows burn
as they took their place on the wires.
a coven of black eyes and crippled wings,
speaking in the same kerosene as a sleepless dawn.
and in the lurch of finite definition,
the first to be descended whimpers from the neck.
tarnished feathers and grated bones
hold back the stomach tissue;
wrought with ribs like broken chapel spires,
it sings the last song well,
and withers.
Track Name: Cripple
not worth bloodying my knuckles,
or the wasted paper on letters
written by dying candle light.
as much, if not more crutches than the cripple wing in the ward.
...and your wings were clipped too early
by your own regressive hands.
there you were, feet on a chair,
neck in noose, complacent and content.
face in hands, and hands above slit wrists.
you killed yourself of me.
you rid yourself of me.
good riddance.
