Track Name: I Want To Guard You From Boredom
I Want to Guard You From Boredom

puberty came late to me and so did everything else
drifting between underdog and also-ran
but as for you, you came to me in a crescendo of silence
on a filthy strip of sidewalk where day settled like a scab

you ordered extra avocado:
of course i wanna know your shadow
i slid the blade across the table:
“you be cain and i’ll be abel”

i want to guard you from boredom

on venice we pass thin old men in leather playing chess
“i’m addicted to epiphany”, you warily confess
when you leave me you’ll be sensible as matching kitchenware
i suppose the song is writing me but it’s taking fucking years

you taught yourself to play piano:
of course i want to know your shadow
i slid the blade across the table:
“you be cain and i’ll be abel”

i want to guard you from boredom
Track Name: Flowers
Flowers

tomorrow morning, when we squint
through coffee, sex and supplements
your perfect legs across the bedframe:
others can be so exhausting

tomorrow dear, i might resist
so pull me close with tiny fists
let’s slow dance to your humming fridge
one pop song without reference

even as i watch you flicker,
sweet mirage of my desire
even now i barely
see my feet between the spiders

oh oh oh - we just wanna know hurt that isn’t ours
hey hey hey - we just wanna be limbless like the flowers

tomorrow morning, we can run
along the panes of cracking ice
if we’re spotted from above
we’ll vanish before cops show up

tomorrow we’ll try not to wonder
what lies behind the curtain of want
it’s only dust, rising in the sun
bare, blind and gaunt

even as i watch you flicker,
sweet mirage of my desire
i know no metaphor worth saving from the fire
Track Name: I Want To Be Naked
I Want To Be Naked

better late than forever, as some guy once said
with a look on his face like his phone just went dead
after another shitty date with my fear and self-hate
i thought it might be better if we were just friends

you feel so free before your car hits the water
you feel so free before your love lives in the basement

i want to be naked

better late than forever, as some guy once said
why bother with sleep, i’ll fall to pieces instead
can’t recall my younger face, inhibitions stabbed to lace
with my eyes on the prize and my back turned on death

you feel so free before your surgeon makes small talk
you feel so free before your love lives in the basement

i want to be naked
