      name your price



a realm of endless there and back again
a facility for rooted fantasy
'cept it's the literal mundane

I want everything
like I want nothing else
I want you so bad
like heaven sent this
like sinking ships
I want you so bad

driven to drink, of course
we have ourselves a murder
all evidence points to the butler
the embittered
never once gave away
that man is not a eunuch
replete with desperate intellect and somehow diffidence

yeah all that I want yourself and to get out of traffic
air conditioning that is while listening to that idiot refrain

"que sera, que sera"
converted churches holding services for diehards
but for the rest of us...
servility to utility is beneficence is taking all kinds
rotating restaurants are evil beehives
a new Versailles
where samurai don't cry
without good reason why
all hail the king of the contrails
crowned by an older version of him

we could have it all
we could keep warm in the cold
fingertips digging in where wits find no purchase
