lyrics

The whole town lined up
outside the tent
what those kids
thought they saw-
do you really want to remember this?
Today, think of all the alien
shots in the dark, that at one time,
all at once, coexisted

I mean aside from all the burning
Hurry by the shanties beside the road

Sunset on a cart
pulled home by a white horse
Conscience of the husband
was righteous and coarse
There must be a limit—if
we only circle around
there’s no hurry in reaching it

Shirt bloodstained and yet it was
not Abel but Cain
who got to hear
the voice that for so long had
been a stranger
Not one word of all the time
They spent growing up brothers
Even love
Yes even love, something to lose
What if the details there
were suddenly shared?
Tender moments siblings keep secret

Sunset on a time
when no words could
be spared. Unknowing
mother rocks soft
in her chair
There must be a limit
This has happened
This will happen
This is happening

Voice on the radio again
strange to be shaped by
such strange men
It’s the hottest summer again
Strange to be shaped by
such strange men—but where
will you go? where

Where? Where? When
you asked me that question,
it sounded like a joke a
rubber hand extended to shake
Outside my kitchen the sound
of fists on the door in
the early morning light
A death! So small
and sentimental
Daddy giving
the middle finger to the Kodak lens
when I saw her face she smiled,
“I don’t know why I
saved it all this time.”
