voodoo child vintage church bird house/wood











Excerpt:


when i needed you last winter*


breaker breaker
this is brown sugar
something wild
inside american 
analog only skin 
between us
signifies my extinct
backspace
puncture
history is now
we paid for our songs
This singular notion 
of an absolute 
acutely aware of being 
every cell 
in my body breaks
sporting a name tag 
with a fancy title
laying here 
in the same room 
just feels like everything
summer can’t tell 
the difference
sixty settings
let’s be young
let’s pretend 
previous warmth
i mean i don’t mind
that we, too
almost always
are the absence 
of shared experience
and it is here
renovations 
in the act of remembering
that my body cannot decide
whether it wants
to live or die 
image
memory
mortality
we will wander around
we will find each other
perhaps ok 
will be our always
like today is yours
like you are yours
i roar for you
old endings
that begin
what do we do about that
cut your teeth 
on the lack of answers
this is where the light 
pulls and pulls you in
and severance sings 
let’s be honest
we've charmed the shit out of the world already
yes, yes we have
we have charmed the shit outta everyone

*superwoman (where were you when i needed you)
