Here I have seen the light invisible with eyes closed
in shattered manic repose, hospital clothes
Called ultraviolet by the bleached white angel
sinners prayers and ancient snares
you will not catch me unaware
Charlotte unwinds, focus shifts
Grit of sinew, out of the rift,
all the faces are one god
modular shadows turn me odd
I am the nine.
Over the rhine the ancients drowned
rose up in the crippletone sound
fate, my destined hands throw revenant reprimands
all this dream world is is sand
silicone primate hands demand.
And so the earth brings up her hands
offers luck to shattered lands
Her mark upon me, a wedding band
I know nothing else but her demands.
First the clay, then the fire, then the air, and then the water
First the day, then the mire, then the stare, and then the slaughter
Last the fey patched her bike tired, rode somewhere as Gaeas daughter.
Then the mother cast the fire, then declared
bells shatter in my angry weather.
