I'm blown to pieces by this piece
it makes me want to find my feet
to spill my heart out through my teeth
and hear myself in every beat

it stings and barks and breaks my sleep
yet sings like Tibetan bells so sweet
and deep it sinks and builds a nest
where seeds are sown into my chest

to sweat the passion out through my skin
and paint the ceiling with the vapour
to crack this claustrophobic skull
and explode this point in all directions

the blue of the green is brown in the sun
and no hand feeds the worm in the skull

it speaks like water, life and lips,
love, sex, chains and wipes,
human thoughts, trees and truth,
visions, habits, soil and root.

holy supernatural extra brilliant kindness of the soul
