Track Name: Fast By the River
Underneath a crooked weeping willow
At the waters edge, near reedy shallows
She reads her storybooks and paints rhymes
Tree climbs
And high spring tides that currents rush
Wash the muddy banks and brush
Fast by the river

Proud tribes line the silty banks, modern skyline
In my mind a faint outline from distant time
And with Devils Club nets outstretched, fist-clenched
Strain the milky channel for salmon, crows call
Warm nights whisper, soft cherry petals fall
Fast by the river

Tugboats signal open the bridge, we shiver
Rush traffic halts before spanning the sleepy river
Rain clouds gather ‘round clustered hill tops, stinging drops
The barges wake sparkles and sun reappears
Touching the city scars to melt the grey tears
Fast by the river
Track Name: Fear of Negative
Empty hours, warning shot acid showers
Black-face power lines wrapped in English ivy
Burned umbra viscous 3-D moon beam
Stained hands, snipped shrubs, crew-cut
Urbanite intrigue

How could you forget
It wasn’t only my undoing, friend
Laughing off the cuff at these mistakes
About to take – as of late

Make a shadow to smash this ceiling
Broken glass welcome mat, snake-skin mask
Twenty time goodbye in two minutes flat
Hollow gourd heart, vacant end full start
Overflowed river trance, feverish cold showere
Fear of negative

Yes, came here from out of nowhere
For the connection, lover
No expiration date ever set
As of yet – no regret
