The Tide Will Come Out Of Your Mouth


Every time the glass of your skull

Crashes into the fist of another memory

To crush you where you stand

Because another memory has broken you

Because another memory has entered you

Like intruders, they force their way inside

They punch their way into your attention

They invade your heart

Until you must look at them

All so that they can violate you again

Carpet Burns

pulled the rug from under me

left me sprawling on the floor

dispensed with the courtesies

heading straight for the door


he's gone now I'm over him

he'll do the same to another

its my fault, I ought to have

listened to my poor mother


that touch yet wands my face

his hands so large and strong

my future is unknown, I'll be

left without him for so long
