The Apricot Hemline Of Chirakan

04:14 Jul 24 2007
Times Read: 1,054


I do not know how I came to this place,

Awakened here on the sun-baked clay

Of an arid land that parches my face.

I, Demeter of the golden harvest day

That languished along the Messina plains

Where I mothered the adolescent earth

And breathed into hale Grecian grains

My life, my grief, my too molested mirth.




I hold my mano and draw it along the maize

With scratching strokes, long and measured

Across the stone metate where the world lays

Bare before my eyes. Life, death, birth, treasured

Between my two feet, dusty from many roads

And streaked with tears that finally know to fall.

I worry with the rhythm how my mourning bodes

For home and hearth and honeyed bread for all.

You were a spikey thing in my heart

Long ago in a time of white noise

And tangled wires that tethered me

To your special brand of crazy.


You offhandedly taught me to want

The very thing that would consume

The better parts of me, spreading hot

And white, convecting the sure burn.


Sifting through the ashes for clues

Was a dirty job I saved for tonight.

Gloved for cold and dusty truths,

I am undone by the scarred remains.


And you have beaten me to the scene,

Buckled into your asbestos vanity

To hold a single ember to your lips

While I watch, while I ignite anew.

When the fringe of my pillow brushes across my cheek

Reminding me of the cool satin that cradles my head,

I stretch and reach down to pull the blanket of your words over me.

I am again luxuriating in you.

Safe, warm, and drowsy...I drift away.

Whisper in my ear that you are a good man

Whisper in my ear that you killed a man

Hold me when you are most afraid

Let me hear that you are upset with me

Let me hear the tremor in your voice

From anger

From uncertainty

Dare to make me relevant.



Be the good man you whisper in my ear

Be authentic and know your worth

Hold me when I am a mess

Let me hear my friend, above all else

Let me hear the words you do not say

About your heart

About your need

Dare to be relevant.

Swing Shut My Gate

You break my heart

You, desired above all others, the one I set apart.

I find your footprints in my garden row

But never yourself, just fossil steps I cannot know.

Why do you look there; what do you hope to see?

Do you want only the lingering essence of me?

I want to be angry with you. If only I could hate.

I want to latch the door that only of late

I have left unlocked for you to find.

Instead, I hasten from my bed, sleep-blind,

Drawing my gown above the morning dew,

Following my garden wall, searching for traces of you.

Some mornings I find notes penned by your hand

Beside the lonely gargoyle, fading in the rocky sand.

Find My Face (lyrics)

10:11 Jul 04 2007
Times Read: 1,264






When I’m standing by your bed

I will Genuflect

When the world is spinning red

I will resurrect

When my urgency is fed

I will I will

I will recollect...


The sun upon my face

Casting shadows through the lace

While I lingered in my day

Watching children laugh and play


Oh, Turn me turn me TURN ME AWAY!


When I lift you in my arms

I will mouth a prayer

When your eyes reflect alarm

I’ll pretend to care

When I’m feeling nice and warm

I will I will

I will dare to dare...


The sun to find my face

And cast shadows through the lace

Where I linger in the night

Drinking down your pain and fright


Oh, Turn me turn me TURN ME AWAY


(Chanting)

Quae caeli pandis ostium:

Bella premunt hostilia,

Da robur, fer auxilium.


Blood is absolution

Blood is absolute


I will I will

I will be resolute...


The sun won’t find my face

When I’m hiding in the lace

Damned to linger for all time

Church bells will chime and chime


Oh, Turn me turn me TURN ME AWAY (repeat)
