1.Fax

In working my way
Up the mountain
Of love
I’m flowing to the sea
In a river of blood

My dice won’t throw
They are heavy like stones
My cards won’t go
They blow away
Like broken roof slates
From a slum
In a storm

While you walk
Thru automatic ice
In a frozen moon
I’m thanking God
For the dawn

So much for
My rescue operation
I can’t change fate
When it’s
Sent by fax
From a communication
Station

2.Pearl

I began to peel back
The pearl
To the grain
You’d never believe
I could feel so much pain

I began to grind
The pearl into tea
You’d never believe
How red it can be

3.I wanted somebody to love

I wanted somebody to love
But I carry my coffin around
Like a homeless man
In a trance
Like a tramp lost in a crowd

That feeling that is so strong
In the antibodies of time
In the cannibal attic
Of memories
In the unreported lists of crime

How can you be so afraid said one?
It blinds me with the intensity of the sun

4.Did you lose

Did you lose
Your real self
In tragedies
Of the heart?

Do you starve it
With your anger
So that it can’t talk
Without burning

This then
Is hell
And hell is for those
That don’t know
How to love

5.Another weekend with silhouette

Another weekend
With the silhouette
On the wall

The empties
In the recycle bag

The heart for sale
In the butcher’s shop

Another night
In her silhouette world

I try to push them
Over the cliff

Into the red organs
Of the sea

Another weekend
With her silhouette
In a dancing light
From a pail of water

Moving across the theatre
Of my mind

6.There is torture

There is torture
And shadows
In the freezer
What shall I eat first

The leaves of psyche
Under a fire
The heart work
In the kitchen

Let’s eat the handcuffs
Followed by
The crown of thorns
And a drink of psyche
With a sweetener

And the camp fire
Burning a hole
In an animal’s head
And the surgeon’s ghost
That takes your place
