you knew before me

 

i didn't believe in 

at first sight

until i loved you

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

 

fell in unison at first sound

 i saw you

at that moment 

you became everything to me

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

 

your nervous twitch 

and your sliding hips

dont worry

you make me anxious too

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

 

years to the day 

i still want to 

dream of your face and 

you touching that place

nothing more

than to be near you.

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

blood on the leaves

 

"Strange Fruit"

by Nina Simone

 

 

Southern trees

Bear strange fruit

Blood on the leaves

And blood at the roots

Black bodies

Swinging in the southern breeze

Strange fruit hangin'

From the poplar trees

Pastoral scene

Of the gallant south

Them big bulging eyes

And the twisted mouth

Scent of magnolia

Clean and fresh

Then the sudden smell

Of burnin' flesh

Here is a fruit

For the crows to pluck

For the rain to gather

For the wind to suck

For the sun to rot

For the leaves to drop

Here is

Strange and bitter crop

friday morning ... listening to the black keys

listening to the black keys

blending melodies with paint

on the sound

smelling the sound

hearing the color

love the mixture  

that comes from

another

for keeps

 

not what you do

but how you play it

what you say

but how you make it

 

rhythm progressing

rhymes stressing

 

loving the battle 

the struggle 

for keeps

Oh, what an ordinary day

 

"Birth In Reverse" by St Vincent

 

Oh, what an ordinary day 

Take out the garbage, masturbate 

I'm still holding for the laugh 

The dogs will bark so let them bark 

The birds will cry I'll let them cry 

Here's my report from the edge 

Like a birth in reverse 

What I saw through the blinds 

You could say that I'm saying phenomenal lies 

On the cosmic eternity party line 

Was a birth in reverse in America 

This tune will haunt me through the war 

Laugh all you want but I want more 

Cause what I'm swearing, I've never sworn before 

Like a birth in reverse 

What I saw through the blinds 

You could say that I'm saying phenomenal lies 

On the cosmic eternity party line 

Like a birth in reverse in America 

Like a birth in reverse 

What I saw through the blinds 

You could say that I'm saying phenomenal lies 

On the cosmic eternity party line 

Was a birth in reverse in America

I'm taking your picture, pigeons. I'm writing you down, Dawn.

Fourth Floor, Dawn, Up All Night Writing Letters

 by Allen Ginsberg

 

Pigeons shake their wings on the copper church roof 

out my window across the street, a bird perched on the cross 
surveys the city's blue-grey clouds. Larry Rivers 
'll come at 10 AM and take my picture. I'm taking 
your picture, pigeons. I'm writing you down, Dawn. 
I'm immortalizing your exhaust, Avenue A bus.
O Thought, now you'll have to think the same thing forever!

Where the rain never falls the sun never shines

 

"Dark As A Dungeon" by Johnny Cash

Oh come all you young fellers so young and so fine 

Seek not your fortune in a dark dreary mine 

It'll form as a habit and seep in your soul 

Till the stream of your blood runs as black as the coal 

Where it's dark as a dungeon damp as the dew danger is double pleasures are few 

Where the rain never falls the sun never shines 

It's a dark as a dungeon way down in the mine 

Well it's many a man that I've seen in my day 

Like a fiend with his dope and a drunkard with his wine 

A man will have lust for the lure of the mine 

And pray when I'm dead and my ages shall roll 

That my body would blacken and turn into coal 

Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home and pity the miner digging my bones 

Where it's dark as a dungeon...

sunlights of a misty sea

daylight garish me

 walk a path

scatter dust

realize awakeness

scars a must

 

wake one day

realize the trust

Memories so bright I gotta squint just to recall

 

"Regret"- St Vincent

 

Morning pry the windows open

Let in what's so terrifying

Summer is as faded as a lone cicada call

Memories so bright I gotta squint just to recall

Regret the words I've bitten

More than the ones I ever said

Who's the one animal

All by yourself, all of us

All of us

All of us

Who's the one animal

All by yourself, all of us

Who's the one animal

All by yourself, all of us

I'm afraid of heaven because I can't stand the heights

I'm afraid of you because I can't be left behind

Oh well, there's a red moon rising

The door slammed and it felt like a cannonball

Who's the one animal

All by yourself, all of us

Who's the one animal

All by yourself, all of us

All of us

All of us

And grace will lead me home

 

By John Newton

 

 

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

 

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

 

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.

 

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

 

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

 

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
