Information 03:13
In my hand a tiny gate Information oscillates Trained hands take what they're given Synonym, symbol and vision Break it all, even broken hands spit light Why does it matter what comes next? Why does it matter what happened last time? Free the mind from useless noise End the endless civil war Make and unmake with equal force An appetite-- an approximation Spit it out, even empty mouths spit light

Though at first you wont see They cannot touch you Though at first you won't know They meant you only kindness There's no had at your neck There is no leash to keep you still Still... Though at least we said then Life is not like sleeping But through day and heavy night I walk around, and around What pulls about the mouth? Something I'd been thinking all along? What undoes the things I start When the days, they come in pieces What crept out of it's box When it heard them leaving What company we keep What crawled out of your sleep What goes stirring in your mind That brought you to the window? See we never do in sevens What we could do in fours We'll be better now Than we ever were before If you will forgive me A second time around If the habit does not break If the pattern does not form But still...

Norah's Song 04:19
I did not tame the wild around me Though they sometimes will tell me their stories It's not the same Though sometimes what they say is so strange I want to write only what happened You decide what it means My thoughts may break away when I'm speaking A flurried thing, a flock of birds My mind may often fly to high corners What I see from here is so absurd I want to show you How it all means nothing In swathes of color In simple structures How when I fly away, I'll leave you my shoes Maybe a list of words that tell only the truth How I did not tame the wild around me But I listened most of the time

Sand 05:33
Softly, softly leave the room With all you can't stand to share Though bloodless, I left you My heart is true I would not leave you starving What lives between our cells? What lives between our minds? Because when you make a kill Something in me dies They would not need to know What doesn't matter now How we never hated you How we don't know how I know I must belong Like we all must belong With or without you Boldly I wander, bold I move Full of the forms we fill The strange of my kind grow stranger still They see what I am blind to I know I've been a fool I know I walk a line But when I break my stride Something in me dies They would not need to know What couldn't matter now How we never hated you Now we don't know how I know I must belong Like we all must belong With or without you I've done all that I can I never told you I can't stand to be still Hold me and maybe I will
