(i'M In) Lust
I don't believe in love, I decided long ago:
that other hearts were summer heat and mine was winter snow
I despised them for their impudence, oh such a long way to go!

(never) Letting Go
In the blackness I prowl around my house, a loop of small town minds through mine.
I tried my hand at filmmaking, discovered that Hollywood's a lie.
America doesn't mind. She broods discontentment. She makes our ocean widen.
But the scalpel of age, it is I who can't make it cut.... more »

Pretend never hurts, as I fall, hold me. It means nothing.
Maybe so elegant, wish-fulfilment, parade of idiocy mistreated me,
like fools worshipping mistakes when in paradise
remembering all night to go back. Insight,... more »
Every creak of this house that is not my home
soaks into bone, mildewed, honeyed, broken.
You shift in bed and I hear, your million-miles-away in
dreamland, yet you are so near.... more »

You are so calm and full of grace
A winner of our IQ race... more »

For all time is black without.... more »

But it should not.... more »
