lyrics

Trampoline sensations
lingering
I fall asleep
grinning
and awake
grinning
in awe
at what I
see saw
see saw
see saw
see saw...

It's unreal
it's unreal
it's unreal...
It's unreal
it's unreal
it's unreal...
It's unreal
it's unreal
it's un—

Cornucopia sofa
so far you are
treating me A-OK today—
Eleemosynary celery
boyar
born of crimson velvet clay
born on an inclement Friday
born in the month of March...

Tambourine tintinnabulations
annotating
birdsong, bee song,
thumping bunny hearts
clinging
in awe
to what they
see saw
see saw
see saw
see saw...

It's unreal
it's unreal
it's unreal...
It's unreal
it's unreal
it's unreal...
It's unreal
it's unreal
it's un
reeling in the Earth
cartwheel and coincide
sidewind and surrealize
Sun reeling in the Earth
Earth reeling in the Sun
(parenthetical asides aside)
Sun and Earth
having begun
accrete
accrue
accelerate—
collide...

Pierce my wrists with your nails,
pierce my temples with your thorns;
Revoke my resurrection license,
I can't bear to be reborn.
Place me on a bed of shells
(relics of pistachios)
within earshot of the sound,
somewhere over the Narrows...
