CEREMONY The stars are falling from their beginnings in night to their destinies in dust and nothingess on their way to die The stars were falling when you were born that night. The Leonids a massacre of light in the sky The stars are falling from their beginnings in night To their destinies in dust other way to die. Everyone came to dance The straight and winding are one Your soul may be required of thee Drink up , drink up Everyone came to dance. The straight and winding are one The dance is complete even if you don’t know why you’ve come. The desert that breaks you so vast that it calls for the one thing to fill it you pour in your heart. Fill up the vessel with largeness of heart Fill up the tumbler. Drink up. Drink up. The Desert that breaks you so vast that it calls for the one thing to fill—your largeness of heart. Everyone came to dance The straight and winding are one Your soul may be required of thee Drink up , drink up Everyone came to dance. The straight and winding are one The dance is complete even if you don’t know why you’ve come. Ceremony.

DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS Why does the traffic stop In the dark wondering When the comet left green shooting stars in the sky Was left out with the bandages on my eyes. Now I’m the only one who sees Except for you. Now you and me The Day of the Triffids How the triffids came to be no one knew The satellites above our heads. Maybe it’s true Now I’m the only one who sees Except for you. Now you and me The Day of the Triffids A vegetable that walks and stings Eating flesh is just their thing We put them on farms and we heard them talk But now we’re the produce Just watch them walk The Day of the Triffids Is this the beginning of something Or the end of everything?

GENIUS OF LOVE A Labyrinth with stunning views The trumpets herald all the news And signal every G train’s arrival Mercury inside your veins No such thing as retrograde your certainty it certainly is primal Projects shine like constellations The M Train sings through all its stations Flashing its electrical morse code Your stormy eyes are everywhere You’re shooting sparks without a care And once again you have me in your hold Oh Superman Oh genius of love Oh judge Oh mom and dad is that not enough They say be careful, I say look behind you You cannot change what’s deep inside you Blowing past the lines of caution long ago They quickly yoke you when they find you The barrel of the gun reminds you How very slow the motion really goes But in the jaws of hungry Brooklyn Your superheroes come and took you Somewhere very dark and very cold Last time brought down low by the ringleader But now the frantic fear will leave you In fact it’s always yet to well unfold. Oh Superman Oh Genius of Love Oh judge Oh Mom and dad Can that be enough? What the fuck you looking at Under the maze of subway tacks and all the fortresses of solitude Heat that blurs subtle distinctions Gospel drifts from Sunday kitchens Despair and hope have ways of finding you. Insular strands they weave together Strong enough to smash whatever Plans you had to open all your doors Love amongst the haunted mirrors The objects closer than they appear Here to come and make my story yours. Oh Superman Oh genius of love Oh judge Oh mom and dad is that not enough Trying to be little heroes In our lives of mainly zeroes Or maybe even sometimes ones Without the magic realism Without the story mechanisms It makes us feel like we are almost done. But in the jaws of hungry Brooklyn With your unstoppable momentum You’ll have a tale to tell if you survive Through the teeming human clutter Wisdom comes up from the gutter How to live and not just stay alive. Oh Superman…. Oh genius Love Oh Judge Oh Mom and Dad Is it ever enough Can that just be enough
