Track Name: I Saw It In A Film Once
Dropping out
Lie again
Collect myself
Meet me home
A voice forgives
Through the door
For being so bored...

Your mile-high heart welling
The aches and the phrases they're spelling
Impossibly defined by the squeezing of knuckles,
Aversion of eyes

Consensual catharsis
I'm bubbling over now
And through the years, encompassed
I love you still
Track Name: Conifer 2
The Cascade conifers
Their breath of evergreen
Watch it turn to steam
Pins asleep in the gleam

Notify me upon your integration
When you're snowed in and middle American

Maybe then I'll know what and when you meant
in the blanks between the symbols sent.
The jumps filled with discontent
When you said:

Give me big sky
Soaking sunlight
Silent, Tragic
Burn the mattress
Your voice as it slides
through subalpine
Maybe now it'll carry as advertised
Glue continental divide

Still, it sounds but
Nothing worth anything now
Need be brought up from sleep
Carried out
Track Name: Shasta
Lemon wedge moon,
did I speak too soon?
To the marks on your forearm
To the scuffs on your shoes
Inopportunely rising from the white
Like a pupil's ring surrounding stagnant light

Winter breaks end,
We'll settle with regret and spend the last night of vacation at home
It's better in the red glow
Swimming up the showerhead and soaking your clothes

Fourth floor Department store,
YOU looked at me the same way.
Foot half down on the brake,
Slow roll,
Ripples on great lakes.

Maybe this is your best place
(A translucent storm of ideas that replace the low lying chill of an afternoon weekday)
When the shadows crawling on the counter tops
Slow enough to peel your skin off
Slowly shrink away

I know you're leaving when I wake
So I'll sleep past my chance to say:

You are the red,
the fabric that's stretching.
I'm burning blue
shifting after your deepening shine at the end of the spectrum
And now I'm scared of my surroundings
I'm too small for this galaxy!!!
So, you can shimmer all around me but
when you implode into a nebula
Don't slowly shrink away
