lyrics

“My blood is the miracle which runs in the vessels of the air from my heart to yours.” —Frida Kahlo de Rivera

i found my baby crow inside a telephone
tiny tin can home
i tugged the other end connected to its twin
then i spoke
i can tame you
i will name you
i won’t let you go
don’t go
don’t
don’t go
an unfitted connection
a blackbird and a woman
my unrequited pet reflection
but harmless it was

i walked eggshells barefoot
yelled why the weight
i’ve found that whether pounds of rock or feather
it hits the ground with equal tether 
mock it 
call it crow
what’s big or bad about it?
a word is what we put upon it 


heavy on the bluebird wire
a million voice amplifier
runs right through you
heard the air is light
so glad to feel the frost bite
chitter chatter tap dance
with a bitter aftertaste
when the talk’s done
how ‘bout some self-love
and if we’re in a bad mood
it’s on a full moon
karma has a habit
being melodramatic
and slightly sarcastic
it ate
then flew away

so quiet
now you’ve learned
baby scavenger
we’ll take what we can get
scraps we pulled
polar directions
the cord snapped
should have left it
still i spoke
i won’t let you
let you go

whether pounds of rock or feather
it hits the ground with equal tether
mock it
call it crow
what’s big or bad about it?
a word is what we put upon it
i walked eggshells barefoot
yelled why the weight
i’ve found that whether pounds of rock or feather
it hits the ground with equal tether

deliriously
i walked across a rickety beam
grey drone
clogged throat
couldn’t speak but you said you’d help me
up a ladder
an eiffel alter
where prayers are answered
and i was almost
i was al—
i was al—
almost there
but wheeled from underneath
no feat’s fair on stilts
you reached
for what was most precious to me
said we need money money money
but don’t tell anybody
descend sweetly
hide a meaning
shove a feeling
under under

then crow walked in
my doppelganger
eager twin
watched me swallow our key
was it disgusting
tell me ulysses
of self-shackled wanting
of paradisiacal purity obscene
i clutched it gently
then ripped apart its body
and i took away its longing
and i can hide a meaning
and i can shove a feeling
under under
and i can make a living
eating what’s given
not listening!
la la la la la la la
