lyrics

All that had
Passed
I saw a
Blue sky
A blazing
Sun
And tears of
Blood in
My old man’s
Phantom eyes
That flies
Midges
Mosquitos
Drank from
And I thought
We make up
The stories we
Need to
Because we
Are terrifying
We Homo Sapiens
My Mother
Hung herself
Not a word
Wrapped the chord
How long had
She known
You don’t sleep
With your own son
And not hear
The awful truth
About yourself
Or maybe it
Was like
Coming home
Familiar
Comfortable
Warm
All the lights on
Fire dying
All safe in their
Beds
Your infant son
You left on the hill
Reborn
At your breast
Again
But his heels
And his shoulders
And the shape of
His head
And your mouth
On your mouth
Kissing yourself
Where have you seen
Those eyes before
Navy as a newborn
This ravenous wanderer
Besting the sphinx
Limping to your door
Victorious
To claim his Queen
Dry eyed widow
Of Laius
The Pederast.

[wordless singing]
