Lawn Knives (free) 02:04
Lawn Knives we all cut close and snip snip snip i'm a woodland nymph take off your clothes and lie in the blades of grass we all cut close to our sunburn sideburns crackle crackle flake let no one know
2.
End of Days (free) 02:38
End of Days you have to do these things for yourself i'm bound by stranger feelings if voices tell me to act it out i just won't bother listening you have to do these things for yourself i can't help much past raising your booster seat on the pyre while you heave through your flute for me you have to do these things for yourself my mind is odd and fevered if voices tell me to act it out the question's "how or never?" you have to do these things for yourself the animals are watching i feel the wind that comes when you say it's the end of days
3.
Decimate Everything (free) 02:40
Decimate Everything break your records burn your clothes we will not grow old if we decimate everything shave your haircut smash your glasses we will not grow old if this cold feeling passes
4.
Morning Bath (free) 03:04
Morning Bath i dont know how you work i'd ask but you're not sure i dont know how you look in the mirror while heaving now i dont know how you work some fevers have a cure your mouth's a gauzy blur in the mirror while heaving now did you ever look away the cavity our workday made if you have a cruel complaint say it, just say it did you ever look away our office with our coffin laid if you wish that things would change say it, just say it the cavity our habits made
5.
Boring Horror (free) 03:10
Boring Horror that's not what your body said "i'm a dried out orchid stem" that's not what your body said over and over and over again that's not what your body said and you know its dialect that's not what your body said over and over and over again ill be your boring horror ill be your glorious mirror i don't know how you look away i'll be your boring horror your glowing black chimera ill hold this scaffold right in place that's not what your body said "i'm a castle carved in flesh" that's not what your body said over and over and over again that's not what your body said and you know its architect that's not what your body said over and over and over again
6.
Wombstone (free) 02:46
Wombstone you were yourself while your flesh was nimble but the brain has a way of stumbling into corners and caverns and red spattered patterns till you undo you were yourself in your skin womb shaking knit in varicose veins your whole body was naked collapsed on the slab we're awaiting the hour when you undo like a baby barely awake eyes as empty as urinal cakes i figured maybe, anyway empty is our merriment
7.
Wrinklecarver (free) 03:06
Wrinklecarver i don't want to live without it i don't want to think about it i don't want to feel my skin unlace its skates i don't want to chew my tooth chips i just want to boil the head till its sparkling and see through like we'd hoped we were what a weary way we fall we're as old as emeralds
8.
Eat Sun, Son (free) 02:52
Eat Sun, Son never felt so warm but your womb is a mountaintop never felt so warm till your veins emptied over me you could not have known that the sky opens up with this blessed wonder my gingerly moving limbs we're going under the grass starts to dance and swim never felt so warm till the flames of gehenna licked never was forlorn that's the way that we operate a demon and a god are now raging inside of your sacred fever your gingerly bound restraints you're going under split lips hiss the songs of saints
9.
Alabaster Bodyworlds (free) 02:48
Alabaster Bodyworlds i've seen my pale limbs mummified in infernal fridges wax paper, foil and plastic wrap hold fast their hinges i've seen my face in shadowed lines in a six-foot pool of ashes i've seen my kidney huddled next to the spleen of a sixty year old priest i've seen my veins strain to be seen in plastinate noblesse das kapital continues on well after cell death i've seen my hair coiled in the grass of a ditch in Strathcona County i've seen the oily underpass where the third search party found me so come back down... we have graves in the dirt so come back down so, no?
10.
Early Birthday (free) 03:46
Early Birthday shrouded in snow pale as the morning star your little flesh scarf sewn by your belly's arms your boiling brain and the stove of your art bubbling over black on the shattered glass we all have time! i doubt it you'll be just fine! i doubt it suspended in amber, surrounded by the lives you never wanted but you lost it's what it is that's what it is it's what it is little membrane between the things we've been shivering cold, upright and frightened dumb the pulp and wet fruit slip as your fingers numb no design in the rope just a shriek and a moan disembodied prayers for a life alone
