about

I came from the water of the womb. When it came time for me to have a womb, it was filled with the appendages of grown men, unwelcome, but they smiled and their teeth glistened anyway. They were like the spines of mountains.

Track Name: How It's Made!
how
how to be nice to yourself
oh how to be nice to yourself
tell me
teach me how to be
self-assured and loving
Track Name: Wet April
my cool bed sheets and that wet April light
I imagined your naked body lovingly
One day you would be me and I you, I thought
Children children make that true
I thought the womb was a place where someone should live
Before it became a gaping wound of woman within me
Barren
Dark
Wet
Swamp

I never even touched bismuth before
Not until I held that child
Small in my arms she lives, she lives between the nook and the cranny
There in the crook of my arm
Where my hair is raised ever slightly
The child is so cold and still
And I weep over her face
In warm blue and honey
daughter and i
dddaughter and i

Imagine you produced
Semen so easy to spill! you just let it out without question!
Cum stares up at me from my bedsheets where it sprawls, waiting
“darling what are you waiting for”
I feel something indescribable within me
Want to love baby and I love baby
But baby has left me along with my womb

Maybe it’s ok.
I’m not a woman anymore.
I’m not a woman anymore.
I’m not a woman anymore.
I’m not a woman anymore.
Track Name: Touch
it's too much
it's not enough
it's too much
it's not enough
it's too. much.
Track Name: Hymn for the Little Men in the Hall
Well you know what they say,

My blood is your blood.
My soul is your soul.
My body is your instrument. (Darkness is something I value in our friendship)

You play me all night long (I’ve had crushes on a lot of libras and geminis)
Oh you don’t need to tell me,
Don’t need to tell me
A thing of your thoughts (Nobody could believe it and that's why it happened)

Nobody could believe it and that's why it happened.
Track Name: Little Finger
Give me your little finger
I’ll keep it in a box close to my person
I’ll paint it in lacquer and lacquer it with paint
And I’ll kiss its knuckle
Deep into my mouth

I ate from the belly of the swan
She eyed me up and she eyed me down
Her hand and neck were as one in my fist
And I pulled what was left of her
Deep into my mouth
Track Name: Shadow
Give me your troubles
Track Name: Mold/Water
I don't mind when it doesn't mean something
I just really want it to

Your momma cried

You were born onto a soap dish
And your momma washed her hands with you every night

Your momma
Your momma cried
Track Name: Night Trek
Things are piling up

You left me there alone
You left me there alone
You left me there alone alone
You left me there you left me there

YOU LEFT ME THERE ALONE!
YOU! LEFT! ME! THERE! ALONE!
YOU! LEFT! ME! THERE! ALONE! ALONE! ALONE! ALONE! ALONE!

you left me there alone alone alone alone alone alone
Track Name: repose
i am waiting out the storm i am
i am waiting out the storm i am
i am quiet and reposed
i am waiting out the storm i am, i am

m m m

i am waiting out the storm i am
waiting out the storm
i am calm and reposed i am
i will sleep a thousand years until i hear that you're not here
i am waiting out the storm i am. i am.
i am waiting out the storm i am. i am.
i am waiting out the storm
i am
Track Name: THOU ART
Woman Thou Art God

I will give you everything you need to know.
I will tell you how to make the flowers grow.
