lyrics

Thanks to theorist Helene Cixous
for the phrase “Because changing I”

Between the wars
they come to hox us in the stable,
so why am I holding this guitar neck
like it’s a bone broken through the skin?

These paragraphs aren’t up for auction
where your charts and graphs do all the talking.
This pen still moves like a robin tricked into love
with the click of my tongue.

Because changing I,
please focus your particles on mine,
great-grands of thunder, under one sun.
I’m ready to dance when I can’t run!

And I will tie this promise around my shins:
Scream Everything! Scream Everything!
Still this pen moves like a robin tricked into love
with the click of my tongue!

And we shuffle down the road
with the smell in our eyes.
