lyrics

Amethyst to soothe you
jade to splice the spine
the blossoms on your birthday
were strewn about the sidewalk by mine

I think I feel it all

I hate to call you sweetheart
I hate to call you friend
I love to call you Laura
your cadence lends a little calm
to my restless
to my too intense
to my highstrung
to my stupid little head

I need to know your blood type
I need to take your pills
to synchronize our saddest nights
and throw our darkest visions to the wind

I feel it picking up

petulant shrug
petals clung to your sneakers
passing out on an underground train
there is nothing in our hands

sibilant speech
beneath a canopy of doom
you affirm all my quietest parts
in the darkness of your room

brute black hair in the basins of your flesh
don’t quench my immolated ego wanes
buried in your arms tonight

I don’t wanna talk about your past anymore

we name your father Lilian
then drown him in a pool
nothing in the night dissents
the multiverse keeps spinning to your mood

you try and take my picture
I cover up my face
as if to shirk or demure such a permanent
trace of myself in your gaze

well I cannot complain
you can take my picture
anytime that you’d like
anytime, I don’t mind

when you kiss me there is a moon
where the sun once hung in the sky
and I know it’s a mode of desire
