The boon of Erebos

The hillside rolled with a subtle incline almost as smooth as a sigh and the figures marched upward.
A yellow sun hung over a blew sky, my
Father and his friends unloaded their gear and set up camp.

“It’s never been this crowded before.” My godfather said.

My father turned and gazed up the gentle- daunting slope. I followed his gaze.

“They must have heard how nice it is this time of year.”

I looked out on the land and watched the procession.

Then without warning I darted into the brush and followed them… From a distance.

I saw them at the top of the hill their hoods off, their languid faces weeping long black tears in bright sunlight. They clutched in their hands bright metal, sharp metal, engraved and grim yet nonetheless beautiful knives. Before I could blink they drove the blades they each clutched deep into their throats and dropped dead in a fantastic array. It was the sign of Erebos. That’s when I realized the shadows held dark things. Wicked nymphs watched me and giggled- the ceremony had been of their design and now the noon of Erebos was bestowed upon them. I said naught- but turned and fled.



My face doesn’t work
It’s melting
My heart won’t beat
It’s sleeping

The heart rests in the cage
Like I’m in trouble
But instead I feel wasted
1030 at night and I’m working

My hands won’t reach
They’re broken

At the old cafe

I went to dream at the old cafe
Where in winter time they old men sigh
And on cool mornings
Husbands cough
Breathing out like dragons
Splitting wood
Chopping logs and lighting the first fires of day

And while I dreamt- I dreamt away
Slipped and fell
The resonance cascade
Caught me weeping
And sigh one more

At the old cafe
Cry for more

It still beats sleeping alone

Land lady found out
Got love in the air
No way did I ever
No way not ever
No way did I ever
Even care
When my love was with me
The land lady found out
And she said-
“No overnight guests”
But I can’t keep my bed cold
Sitting sad and stoned
I’d rather be with my love
Even if it costs me
Even if I lose
Even if I’m stuck
Deep in this rut
It still beats sleeping alone

“It’s alright ma, I’m only bleeding”

Darkness at the break of noon

He not busy being born
Is busy dying

My friends are all dying
There are all leaving
And I am leaving with them
I do not know where

It’s alright ma
I’m only sighing

To make that all should be killed to crawl
But don’t hate nothing at all
Except hatred
Flesh colored Christ’s that glow in the dark

It’s only people’s games
That you got to dodge
And it’s alright ma
I can make it

My friends are from here to eternity
You suddenly find
You have nothing to fear
They leave in droves

They tell me that they love me
And quietly disappear- As I wave
While the masters make the rules
For the wiseman and the fools

But it’s alright guys
I’m only fading
And when the morning comes
And hating the light I rise

I will think of my lovers
And scorn my lives
All the times
I’ve wasted

Just not being in your arms

But I mean no harm
Or put fault
On anyone who lives in
A vault

But life sometimes must get lonely
Pettiness plays so rough

But it’s alright ma
It’s life and life only

4/11/13 Thursday girl (you know the drill)

I dig girls with leather jackets
With hoops and gauges
Piercingly and tattoos
And not a single diamond

Out enjoying some free meal
Fighting the establishment as it feeds you
Staying out all night
And getting drunk in canoes

Yeah I dig girls in leather jackets
I dig punk rock chix
I dig girls in leather jackets
Girls with hoops and gauges….

Well everyone gotta work somewhere
And she came and found me
Found me working
And she smiled at me.

I dig girls in leather jackets
I dig punk rock chix

4/09/13 because I passed out before posting (again unfortunately)

I’m a head case
And a hell cat
On a one way train
To death on a pedestal
No trial by jury
Not a chance
No love to be admired
Just the shadows dance
One day ill just end
Dead- at the hands of the state

They’ll hunt me
They’ll find me
They’ll beat me
They’ll bind me
And take off
To regions unknown
And I’ll be dead

My sin was freedom
My final pledge-

To never break
