about

Desert Liminal Chicago, Illinois

The silence of the desert is a visual thing, too. A product of the gaze that stares out and finds nothing to reflect it. There can be no silence up in the mountains, since their very contours roar.

Track Name: Sun Limina
the day the storm came the air rang static thick
and the skull buzz drone of life swung on its hinge
I wet stared into the glare and called to it
then waited soft and scared, to tell my sister

then everyone who loves us starts to sing
I'm sorry I'm sorry, my condolences
and in a buzzing Pilsen loft I took the hit
because there's no right way to grieve
or how to live

the pain's a concatenated shape of little things
I'm living in the John Prine songs he used to sing
and searching for those circling hawks he used to see
staring out the gray-blue eyes he gave to me
Track Name: Sandstone
came in from outside around
can't seem to bleed, or scream
just too fried out
I can't quite figure why

came in from outside around
can't move to crawl, or cry
still too fried out
I can't quite figure why
I can't be moved to try

lets ride out, life's a dirty trial
get tried, decided, iced out
can't quite figure why
I've not yet worked it out

like, what's time? born lived had me, died, how?
I can't quite work it out, why?
I won't quite drink it down
I can't be moved to try

slide down the sandstone canyons, white, wild
formed, curved, born and died, how
I won't quite drink it down
I can't quite piece it out
I won't be moved to try
Track Name: Slept In
gold dusk you wake, hide in low light
these dusted lungs got bored and tired
what'd we expect, to grow our health?
sleep days in the pitch black room you built

i'll own, i know i slept in too
gazed up at clouds of that smoke you blew
smiled up in your crowd and i bought in on
that big warm wave come brought us down

ride slow in the van like we're the same kind
sit up, crack wise, opine all night
you saw where I come from's hard to find
still ripped your red eyed hooks out mine

I'll own, I know I slept in too
lost days that waned in the room with you
smiled up in your crowd and i bought in on
that big warm wave come brought us down
