lyrics

I Oedipus
Son of my wife
Sister of my
Daughter
Brother of my sons
Oh my daughter
My lovely daughter
My lonely sister
Where will it end
Sit down beside me
By the Grove of the Furies
In the shade of cypress
And the all too human
Olive branch
Let me dry
Your tears
With this
Tainted hand
This gnarled
Incestuous hand
That will ossify
Soon
In this strange
Haunted place
This no man’s land
On Citharon they
Left me
Heels bound
A squalling babe
For the jackals
And the Lions.

I still dream
Of those sounds
On the mountain
The streams
Gushing
Lambs bleating
The old gay
Shepherds
Mumbling in
Their sleep
The frozen
Infant
Naked save
The silver
Bolt
Fastening his feet
Not even
A blanket
The hillside
Strewn
With gnawed bones
A knee
A ribcage
An ankle
Who’s shoulder
Was that
Who’s clavicle
And the babe
Waiting
Choking
Feet in ribbons
Smeared in shit
Urine
Mucus
Will she never come?
What have I done?
I’ve never known
Such pain
If I survive this
I’ll survive
Anything
I’ll wreak
Such havoc
No rage
Like
The rage of
Infants
Babe of the
Crucified feet
The bolted heels
The tearing wind
Hear My savage
Song
Ah Ah.

And the shepherd
Came
Doesn’t he always
With his sheepdog
Where would the
Gods be
Without the shepherd
And his sheep
