Mockingbird 02:28
we got a 6:45 at the dock he blames ignorance to the system of order mistake the data just by viewing the charts he's got a bumper sticker so you know his view of the subject its due like the first of the month there's no public hearing there's no moratorium i heard that its written in blood contested place and you're the subject location.... if you didn't know me you might think i was faking location... we got a lukewarm 6:45 at the doc we don't talk about it it's a touchy subject i know how to run through the clock imply false data just by viewing the charts he's got a bumper sticker so you know his view on the subject we fell and we climbed to the to the closest latter its a touchy subject you're the subject i want to hear your thoughts on the matter
Cardinal 02:37
the cardinal is the state bird of seven different states ive been to each one of them... i think the license plates of those seven different states is buried inside a box in the apartment of my father you wouldn't believe the seasonal breeze of living next to the river the cold did shiver us but your chickadee is not granivorous tony wants to kill the cardinal ive been thinking what you mean to me theres other birds out there singing you their songs but you chose me we drove at night through the storm and in the morning called upon the cardinal in the end i'll see you there i hate when songs are condescending springtime with the cardinal
birds of a feather flock together is not an excuse for being fascist i know new york jews who go and fight for the idf, forget your own ancestors assimilation causes tension nation build stolen land a growth machine to fuel investors the atm machine's on fire
the storm it rains it pours its left its right at the pressure change the night we met i would forget the details i ride around on trains just to pass the time what the hell do i do now like the aves we tweet we meet up in the trees it was only a passing shower the eve was warm the days were bright but the nightjar eats the firefly have i begun a stable life by concentrating my desires? i breathe the city just to keep me going don't spend too much time inside like the aves we tweet we meet up in the trees it was only a passing shower
Autumn 04:35
i tried living in complete silence only thing that was helpful wa sleep i tried living a lie for the summer now this wookpecker's ivory beaked and they say that love was built for us who's to say what's ideal and what's not they say they built it for us keep and maintain it for a suspect i spent a long time in my bedroom trying to figure out if the world's about to begin or end harry houdini on my bookshelf all out of their coffee cakes i take the train to work each night before the morning wakes me up show me your patience on the phone listening to pavement all alone we watch it burn to the ground let it all hang out i remember how it felt
Xeriscape 02:32
avenues that we both consumed crucial evidence as it passed out view out of reach but in sight in the night i will croon it might be rude in your room it might be rude in your zoom... it was i forgot to mention i'm obsessed with lawns and endless grass it might be too far fetched but im intent on lending you my xeriscape
The Worms 03:52
the worms are buried underneath concrete behind the stairs i saw them once upon a time when i was petty scared weaving through the narrow streets where traffic is abhorred i prefer the tiny places not built anymore twenty thousand people in a bedroom wall fifty thousand if youre counting down the hall i used to live in a society and then it died now im happy just to be alive the worms are buried in the dirt and live under the ground decomposing nutrients and all that we've thrown out the linneas longissimus is a hundred feet long worms don't have eyes or ears but they can sing a song they warned of oil in the soil and the grass at shackamaxon max you dont look ready for the task i'll try to as pithy and precise as i can i meander im rambling again
theyre gonna find you write up a contract theyre gonna find you without a contact yellow bellied sap sucker


as the seasons change the aves migrate along. some people think aves have been replaced by drones
