once upon a time there was candy & dan.
things were very hot that year... | all the wax was melting in the trees.
he would climb balconies, climb everywhere, do anything for her | oh danny boy.
thousands of birds, the tiniest birds, adorned her hair |
everything was gold.
one night the bed caught fire.
danny the daredevil | candy went missing.
the days' last rays of sunshine cruise like sharks.
then there was a gap in things | and the whole earth tilted.
this is what we're after | with you inside me comes the hatch of death | and perhaps i'll simply never sleep again.
the monster in the pool.
we are a proper family now with cats & chickens & runner beans | everywhere i looked.
FRIDAY - i didn't mean that mother of the blueness | angel of the storm. remember me in my opaqueness.
you pointed at the sky, that called sirius or dog star, but here on earth | fly away sun
ha ha fucking ha you are so funny dan.
a vase of flowers by the bed, my bare
blue knees at dawn. | these ruffled sheets & you are gone &
i am going too.
i broke your head on the back of the bed | but the baby died in the morning.
i gave him a name | his name was thomas | poor little god
his heart pounds like a voodoo drum.
- words on the wall -
