lyrics

Birds, do you hear birds? birthing the
morning the dawning Messiah
but there’s nothing faithful to my knees on the concrete

the bodies are there, all in a row, under black plastic
you thought they looked heavy like the fields in a Rothko
but I’d lost my taste for all that abstraction

a morning rain is last
the last of these baptismal symbolisms
a rain to snuff the flame
love with fail
every time

but every time it does
the world will offer a closeness
no love was ever lost
just painfully rearranged

step to the veil, pull it aside, there’s nothing behind it
oh would you touch me? I just feel so unlovely

all that you are and all that I want are calmly converging
no I wasn’t kidding when I said you could kill me

all this way just to find an instance of you

Rothko himself, found dead in his home,
his blood ripe with benzos
I mistake evil for some aching perfection

we all have the right to end our own lives

call your mom, call her out, tell her off
she was wrong bout the world
she was wrong bout you, girl

I loved it
