Track Name: Due Jest
hand in handmade dividends,
means to tame the well.
glass encased hammers await
vetted vents and trails.
serial leaves and returns.
smoke screen fixed enough.
strings to pull they push you there,
stretching breaths and all.
thrown out over the top,
no need for specifics.
break off ties at the knots,
whichever you'd prefer.
make it up as we mope along.
make it up as we mope along.
Track Name: Wreaths
scraping on, dying the lone, which one, once was,
taken along, wishes to flaunt, windows, once won.
arm's length, tangled, yielding and able,
unchained, untrained, willing and stable.
and all the while, the aisles cross the eyes, despite the ever-trying mind.
separable, filed instead, curled upon, starred bed,
targeted, a compliment, privy to, the benefits
arm's reach, and mangled, spinning, incapable,
set down, rearranged, ashes, ashes, full.
Track Name: Shadow Roll
wrapped in.
wrapped up.
sound assigned.
sounding off.
until the pressure's off.
until it's bought and told.
until the pressure's off.
until it's sold and gone and all for naught.
all bets opened prime,
all betting down.
over their blood lines,
all settled down.
Track Name: Waiter
barely leaning on splinters.
spare room to move or leave.
the brightest appear just before the end.
wandering lost and laundered
safe to land sans wonder.
as recalled,
so dull and clear, awards for pretend.
a clean sweep, your dirty feet,
royalty, in for keeping.
little toes, little toes.
Track Name: Curb Appeal
mind the angles
and the dayside wives.
the corners lie.
tilted tables
and expected plights,
weak and blinding sighs.
intake, false start, resting credit,
only first leaves if you let it.
no need to return out-faded
glory, branded, latency.
which degrees
beget witching leads?
their unpleasantries.
open slowly
to the pack unclean,
till the last ones bleed.
sick amounting months and weeks.
sick accounting for mundane leans.
