estrangedTo the absence that between us time exhorts,estranged by deadlyroutines
that in fear of extrication habit holds,
you that in a dream I'm told is real I behold,
umbilicality renews the sinews snagged forlorn,
and in the crass vantage of our distance,
a clever new acquaintance we have made,
you and I, we are too much the same.

In dreams of wires you've grown tangled,
In your nmemonic streets where fog meets dawn
The taciturn vampire struggles for his wicked life,
Melodies that dress demise in lavish clothes start to die,
And don't you know? The devil's playing angel tonight
right 'round dawnToday I woke up face down,right 'round dawn by deadlyroutines
the pavement drenched,
my yellow lips pretty caked,
and my old black shirt,
dripping wet with som' cold.
I called my girl, "I'm heading home"
she said "John, your car is gone"
now I was walking right 'round dawn,
when I saw my car, a pick up truck,
a repo man had taken the liberty,
to strap steel graps 'round its toes.
You see, I don't reckon owing any money,
or repo men that looked like old Elvis,
plus there was something wrong,
my head felt light, my eyes were sore,
I guess the thinking took its toll.
As I was walking I heard two sirens and a bawl,
my girl and a small audience were there I saw,
I pushed and pulled to get to the front,
nobody tried to stop me or tell me no,
and no one said the small spectacle was me all along,
A woman told the crowd about the head-on crash,
one truck and a van, and two guys named John,
one flew, the other got crushed, both dead by dawn,
the phone call was my girl screaming "...you can't be gone"
but all I mind was centered '
-keyboard-+-test-this forgotten treasure,-keyboard-+-test- by deadlyroutines
found by sweet causality,
shakes with inner tremors,
fakes a smile and falls asleep.
Pray the fire gulfs your paper tail
The invisible pain will make you whole
Don't let old forge new all cold, askew!
I turned Oedipus inside out, upside down,
I returned the lost child to its pertinent self,
I sucked this river dry 'till sun make flow again,
I endured, rebound, overcame and fell abridged
Breath sweet peace,
of chants and reasons,
your ear, never short,
echo in forests of light,
and a Lazarus reborn,
will water your withered,
and prove your pasts...
