The Apricot Hemline Of Chirakan04:14 Jul 24 2007

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
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.

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)

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
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)
