My grief has no hope I’m turning around to no one Empty interruption Blank screen one more time Dull image tied tight Parade A vague departure I’m turning around to no one There’s nothing more than this Pressure Access Inlaid Ailment Shallow Features Molten Effort Callous Suture Endless Lattice Balding Velvet Knotted Failure Smallness Saddled Plastic Habit Angled Orbit Narrow Purpose Routine Portrait Woven Focus Counted Format Where is your rupture Now go blend These curves Into insular emblems Endless Lattice Plastic Habit Burning All the Purse strings

landslide 02:17
An outline Circling, justified To what end? Left of what? A landslide Plated glass bent at the sides And pink color Tilts the room Magnify my own worth My importance Disproportioned They’re running from And they’re running to A stand-in solution Rearrange Four sided figures I've lived this Over and over And they’re running from And they’re running to An outline Circling, justified To what end? Left of what? A landslide Plated glass bent at the sides And they’re running from And they’re running to Rearrange Four sided figures

new refused 04:06
This long seed of the old world We blur ourselves What it took to grow us Falling hills We awake Again Through grey To knock your door Hello (With glad relief The chain of hours Essay the task Ten times over) We send the dead to the orchard And from up here On the bad god’s tower Over unending earth There’s cloth over dirt Over rock, over nothing A monument of “truth” To be removed Patterned approval What stakes Who can say The past is also the present So keep your civil distance And we don’t change And all the stories the same 92 in the shade A house A hospital It's all the same

divide 04:40
When we marry their century Who will pay the cost of kindness Lined up, a long divide The outside is the last to know And let the record reflect indifference Spin the drum both ways To make the mansion fill the river And breathe the vacuum speed Taking time in the early night Taking time in the early night And the winter flakes it away And only the letter remains And opposition, embedded in taste And parodies warmth and embrace And the winter flakes it away And only the letter remains And opposition, embedded in taste And atrophy, tunneling When you broke my mirage of stability Eyes bright in the shock of contact Compromise, a cruel persuasion They don’t own what you’ll become They don’t own what you’ll become Painted into a beautiful corner Over portals, numb as fossils Such a novelty Trading fate for a separate exit Trading fate for a separate exit Porcelain, all so frightening The rules split apart Veering off into Symmetry Brevity Pouring over me A nuanced mistake If there’s no concern If there’s no return I’ll draw conclusions in the sand And joy is a crumb in my clumsy hands My destination is Univocal, only you

Fisher Number One Spun out in December They say we need it For the good of the service A routine repeating Dotted with boxes So we stick and stay And the line breaks Too quick to admit Too slow in the drift Watching the belt And letting it freeze Hold us up A two body problem In this patch Of habitat In places That aren't here The benefits of few Offer these Contingencies A template bound to burst Fisher Number One

angry flood 05:01
Leap in with me Into this angry flood Pulling the comb (I have become) Hair in the wound (Threaded and through) I seek to please And feign fulfillment Gathered in pain Maybe folded away And interlaced Red ink Reverse display And woe is me Back then I worshipped shame And here and now Not much Not much has changed Pulling the comb (I have become) Hair in the wound (Threaded and through) I seek to please And feign fulfillment Leap in with me Into this angry flood Punctured in silence I heard your name today And what is not fair I’m falling down again The normal tokens The postures we assume Who is it all for The sun appears to move My shuffled segments My arms adjusting to A lack of presence Refusing what we choose Swift and selective Just paper ripped away These shearing forces Horizon lines dictate And planes of weakness Surround laconic days My obligations Continue on unchanged Abandoned panic Somewhere out of frame Refined, colliding Slanted breath sustained Too many old truths Renounced appearances And only two doors Direction unconvinced My inner canon Conflated punishment With independence A certain sense of regret So I keep clapping along Stiff as the magic fades It doesn’t matter Skewed back in self restraint Both forming zeros again You set my teeth on edge

937 03:12
Yellow lights For my eyes They echo “Our worst gets worse” Long moments As the stain spreads On the marble over the basin Zero of A distance Precision defends illusions Count every Opinion To captain propped up conditions Empty in an arc of pride Boats against the current I need some meaning I can Memorize What is the trick What is the trick What is the trick here What good does it do you To believe in good things I hear the wind At a higher pitch I sit all alone Alone and unpunished Too big for us As we are now Empty in an arc of pride Boats against the current I need some meaning I can Memorize
