lyrics

I'm out on the lawn
Herding all the stars but one
Into my blindspot

Young men and women
Obsessed with sleep as if it's
Small deaths not lost time

Do we artbusting?
It's orgone or it's gone from
Our creased canvases

See a storm coming
Sourgrass and serviceberry
I'm good at nothing

Wasps will turn to whales and aviators will set sail
When the flowers wilt pale as the skin on ocean shells
Leaving feeling worse than when they arrived

No whiplike chokecherry branch, no cool water drowning new grass
No legal pad of askings out or derinding of oranges
None of it will hurt you, you minor god and I won't let it hurt you

I've refused to use the gun on the wall for this long, what's four more years?
I see you, your skin, you must bleach in the sun, 'cause you get fairer while the rest of Earth sears.
