Written by Paul Conant.


Ice smashed windows and jigsaws arranged
by ash and seafoam they are fractured this day
so I’m swallowing the glass
going insane

what once was ours is now turning blue
from strangulation, it’s fracturing the glue
so I’m breaking through the glass
yep, going insane

Silently from all the world that we dont see
Savvy tongues unfurl their secrecy
faucet of a face that cries and drips some more
you are born and then again youre born
ten thousand times, again you’re born

and then there are
blinking cameras catching rain
calisthenics caught frame by frame
so I’m calling out to you

The borders make a mess where lightning forks the frame
Like pale bark before a breathing flame
listen to the memories held inside of sand
for I am a lady seahorse and I love my pregnant man….
