Coven 03:50
grandma was a teacher that could whistle like a bird worry lines in both her palms and washed her hands on every hour my hands are soiled, she’d scold me i don't whistle like a bird stick them deep into the soap i lick them clean, they still taste sour fathers mother smoked a pack and sang old bats at morning her ballet shoes were well worn out hung on the wall adorning i don't know how to dance but watched and learned how to fit in a golden smile, a witty line will blur the sight of ruin chapter one is on how to be a girl mother had her first binge with a bottle of black liqueur some truckers held her hair while she got sick right by the river my hair is thin, she’d scold the second servings that i ate in the evenings we would watch tv and neatly note our weight dad loved a girl from britain , she ran away from home she lived with us when she was only twenty four, she put my hands to play she’d eat raw meat and drew at midnight, little did i know her hands were stained with purple juice the day that she went away a friend of mine had hazel hair and spooky blue doe eyes the daughter of a pilot, torn up shirts three times her size when she sat on my lap and i smelled soap, cinnamon, fire i shamed myself for breathing in and all my weird desires chapter one is on how to be a girl how to be a how to be a how to be a girl how to be a girl how to shed a skin you've learned by heart you cut the binary up on most days i am not a girl and i don’t know how to be but neither did the women i looked up to as a teen or maybe they knew best it all boils down to the same thing the world reads us a certain way and it binds us all in healing chapter two is on how to be you

all of you are down and out for some psychology what a misery nobody can speak up honestly guilt, baby, guilt is such a lazy energy cracking out liberal allegories, pretty please going round in circles, i’m over you, under the bar far from all equations you put up for some salvation nowhere near a stable state need a border to my skin it won’t translate get me a simple weight there is no right side of the bed wait you'll see no seam where a gaping hole once used to be fuck your healthy some conditions you would never see my hands are alien my throat is parched i’m starved it's creeping up again I feel it lurking on the brim and you keep on insisting i'm not even listening keep on insisting i’m not even listening won't go for a walk but i might join the misfits might do harm by trying to fit in and fix it wait you’ll see no seam where a gaping hole once used to be fuck your healthy some conditions you would never see looks fine in line till the moment it will crash again no cure no meds that can make a hurting word unsaid

I go out I make sounds I brush my teeth I repeat I go out I make unusual sounds I bleed I blush I do chores I get bored That is what normal people do I stay in When I tell sad news I grin I twist in heat Pay my fees I make a list of everything and everything will stare back at me I wake up and I breathe I turn the soft side down Make more uneasy sounds That is what normal people do

Spoons 03:09
packed meat, packed meat a threat to well fed thieves on board, on board the water’s way too cold whose son, whose son whose lungs are filled with stares whose blood, whose blood will soak next sunday's air lives are measured with a teaspoon who’s to mourn, who’s to forget whose lives do you dare to grieve when things come to an end lives are measured with a teaspoon who’s to mourn, who’s to forget? whose lives do you dare to grieve when things come to an end? do say, do say do say their names out loud the food, the talk are tinted deeply brown lives are measured with a teaspoon who’s to mourn, who’s to forget whose lives do you dare to grieve when things come to an end when things come to an end what then does a mother have a daughter does it taste of foreign spells there’s a story in the water tell it, call them by their name a little moral here and there a spoonful makes them disappear, a little moral here and there a spoonful makes them disappear dinner must carefully be set eat the whole story or forget dinner must carefully be set eat the whole story or forget

Cheap Cake 04:23
heart shaped garlands ten shaky cigarettes open doors, empty halls gnashing teeth and sweat are we supposed to think of you in loving memory or shall we put up warning signs for all drunkards to be they talked me into wearing perfume not my voice, but in my words everything is molded wrong and nothing to revert people sob and smoke they shake their heads and joke and sigh look down at old and young you bow their heads and say goodbye it's never fair it's never fair i let them stare they sob and smoke and joke sigh but no one gets to meet my eye cause i'm not really there you would have liked the stories the polish pastor told and you would have pretended not to want a grand big show but in the end you'd take the stage adjust the tie and the guitar a well respected man just like the dandy that you are its sandwiches and cake and death a blackbird at my feet we sneak another shot below the arms of your old tree see you lean against the window morning coffee, its july its so much harder to get up when you wanna die it wasnt me it wasnt me below your tree a memory for everyone a thank you in between and a blackbird at my feet they said it's rude of us to go and leave the urn back in the car while having sandwiches and cake and death and smoke in the front yard there was still a pink post it on that urn that said your name god i really didn't wanna see you die that way they make you feel like shit for choosing the cheapest cake with every bite they nod and smile and piss you off while there's other wars to fight cause you i promised a renaissance all you got was different walls its the same flimsy haven i have built you years before i will always keep on wondering what part of me is you and wonder can i love that part would that make me love you too or cut it out and and bury deep by the tree next to your name see i really didn't wanna see you go that way i really didn’t wanna see you go that way i promise to remember an not to sound too much like you but when i cry and when i sing i know i do i know i do
