lyrics

My Father
Your husband
Your son
Chin trembling
The sightless
Eyes
The wine Spilling
On his
Clothes
The singer
In the
Hall
Her dirge
About a
Girl from
A mountain
Limbs of
The deer
Eyes of the
Doe
That sort of
Thing
I refused to
Wear
Mourning
One day I’ll wear Black
What would
It mean
After all this Time
Certainly not
Mourning
My Father
Oedipus
Angry at
His son’s
Tears
Now stop
He said
Not unkindly
Stop child
It’s unseemly
But Etoceles
He cried
And cried
On and
On
And
On
What did
He
Care
If you were
His grand Mother
Incestuous
Monster
Who couldn’t
Tell
Her own
From another
You were
His
Mother
And you
Were
Gone.
