Track Name: Patrimony
if I said I'm only capable of lies
would you follow my advice?
fork in the road
unsure of your path
one to prosperity
and one to death
I'll grant one question
my poor, lost friend
Track Name: Metamorphosis
i am a castle being built in the dark
i am three corners

your death is a chemical
synthesized by the isolation of such
Track Name: Gradient Between
drawing from blanks, from this draw turned mini-lake
for our village's sake
still reflecting an almost full moon
like vanity mirrors
exposing life to all of its own beauty
between crisp air
no flow, heavy though
heavy with premonitions of precipitation

forming to the west is an ocean in the sky
draining beaches dry
on the other side
east, where only sands lie

waiting where the gradient between two extremes
is everything

where articulate brush strokes
are the background to backgrounds
below a silhouette of being
reaching for the moisture above
in the atmosphere lifting away from the surface
flying through every sphere until getting trapped up there

where the gradient between two extremes
is everything

ghostly apparitions in groups of four
stallions charging from hell
arched for holy wars against the storm
forming opposite of them

imaginary dreamscapes in waking states
secreting nightly secrets
in shades of pink, violet and grey
over rolling fields of green
sprinkled with specks of yellow, of blue

of wings whirling around before seasons end
to freeze motion until it finally thaws
again free to wither within routine
within cycles, rotations, habits
to watch DNA spiral
a flow inside of flows

as a strand of hair plucked from mountaintops
fading into the abyss that always is
connecting vast bodies to their molecular structures
to the explosive forces forcing splits
before impact bleeds lights final minutes across the great expanse

all of this while the canopy grows
and withstanding the splash
inevitably snuffs the glow
and swallows the sun whole
