Crooked

(Kristin Hersh)

hold the flashlight under your chin
closer as the lights dim

you lonely doll
you lucky dog
you free fall
down to the living room
closer as the lights dim

spread the glitter on your pillow
count your blessings on your fingers
crawl your way back down the stairs
down to the living room
closer as the lights dim

glittering
in lazy boys and christmas lights
glittering
then found a dark body
to the right and crooked

Mississippi Kite

(Kristin Hersh)

you paint your own tv on the wall
carve out insects to feed us all
lights ash by and the fast world echoes your thoughts
your compass led you to the edge of a lake
you’ll singe your nuts down there if you take
such bad advice from the love gods of hate
you’ll get cold
you get burned, you get cold
on the plush green rug in the lime green light
eyes like white stones in black light
i promise you everything that you like
i go “mississippi kite”
gloss assails us then dims
comic book nights, la grim
the hollywood martians, lucky stiffs, fucking win
you told me enough times you can’t give me enough rope
to hang myself one time, but I can always hope
you come down on me so hard that I choke and go
you get burned, you get cold
meanwhile, I feed you boric acid and air
lemon drops, snow cream, speckled eggs
the sweat seeps in through a crack in your head
you go “mississippi kite”

Moan

(Kristin Hersh)

in the deep cold
you can’t be brave
in the deep cold
you can’t be safe
when the wind blows
you can’t be strong
when the wind blows
you won’t be strong
blows with a spine chilling
moan
let’s drink to each other
and drink each other half to death
i’m jumping out of my skin
i’m jumping out of my skin again

Coals

(Kristin Hersh)

shrug off this wretched event
stoic, detached, you relent
you wonder why
we crash but don't land

how a purring engine sputters
like these coals that never cooled
why we crash but don't land

you heated even the mist
around this mossy existence
we never found
cold, gray, calm, dead

it's how a purring engine sputters
like these coals that never cooled
why we crash but don't land

a ramble, a rant
a ramble, a rant
a fairy tale
remorseless and serene

 

Fortune

(Kristin Hersh)

i left you cracking up in the east river
like some river devil
both cruel and unusual
thick with gold and smoking
my friend
under the wire again
and by the way
you cost a fortune
and by the way
you cast a shadow today
i watched you crawling up through the leaf litter
you don't seem to need to breathe
unlike us oily, imsy, cheap
thick with wonder bread
my friend
under the weather again
