An aperture that neither offers me a shelter or retreat And failing that, acknowledge what at best just dulls the atrophy Not for long In so far as my failure to word a stasis, or foray in Such a way that my view serves Zoetropes of advantage All in all If you’d rather Let it all just go to waste Parochial A savant Fearing he won’t Let go Pairing my own Myopic concerns With an escape
Under a bridge where I lay for years A severed limb I had buried here Try not to waste This apogee of my love Starting to feel like I wouldn’t amount to much when It encompasses Everything I hold and forever aggrandise Dead it is Decayed I was Ties that only grow taut with each passing day Parallel the extent to which I would stray From Lacking in a meaning or a reason to define I was lacking in a means by which to rearrange all of my thoughts in hopes of subduing a yearning I couldn’t fathom Could occur Under a bridge where I lay for years Ligature hymn To which I adhere Try not to face This effigy of my trust I was lacking in a means by which to rearrange all of my thoughts while trying to subdue a yearning I couldn’t fathom Could occur Irritate the Sphenoid bone
I hang a robe upon the bloody hook A disconnect From all the stars that slowly dim as if to genuflect An altercation that I hoped would circumvent a curse An allegation that would render all my limbs inert Your sect to a hilt (my wrath until) You go and stir that sword Don’t value your worth (as if it hurts) Shaping your guise into an homage to a virtue For berating the one that you adore My only failings in a bid to learn anything Don’t call my bluff if you’re not anxious Heightened by it Salient too Bloated and rotund But just in case I had a feeling that it would have meant a lot to her In spite of that your only motive is to make it worse For all the risk I know I should have been more wary of Decapitation as a token of my only love
Agni 00:50
The Agitprop 04:09
In a storm Bearing resemblance to An unfettered token of The slog That trails behind each new iteration Of this sty you adhere to Remnants of an urge that you couldn’t ignore In stark Contrast to which you harm The true extent Deceit so thinly veiled Fend off dissent As it appears Building to disenfranchise With the advent of each new agitprop Render it meek where it matters the most L'esprit de corps but only in name Reveries that languish in shame They’ll forget they ever escaped Longing to be understood Lacking a means by which I hope to reappraise An actor to which I could hope to relate Not that it would suit Though I’d feel that I’d like to Absent of a means by which to engage Browbeating of a man into a fine pulp Browbeating of a man into a fine pulp Your absence of self isn’t something to love Fend off dissent regardless of cost Descends with each new iteration
A Glass Wig 04:50
No, I won’t hesitate To ascertain that I have won A sum I would seldom lend Time and again I will see fit to let it all go After this comes a time at which I wouldn’t know It comes at a time where I needed it most Broken in As it fell A time I know would always Hold, all it held But I guess That more or less Time wastes its all to feel worth But instead Indeed I said I would learn In time I guess Acting like there’s indeed a cause Behaving as elated Acting as a glass wig I chose To stand by the reason that I do To swear I mean nothing Had I held my own Time wastes it’s all to feel worth No, I won’t hesitate To ascertain that I have lost A sum I would seldom lend
Kali 00:25
Caustic Wit 03:53
Fleeting as it was For us Savouring the worth In spite of us Latent Somewhat blatant In spite of her But in way I lost my nerve Do want to wait But I don’t understand what I don’t know But in a way my disdain isn’t costing an aid out Here I know How could I know? Everytime I commit to aesthetic All the while I am loathe to admit it Every time that I say that I won’t Has started to be A reason for me To understand the way it was for you A caustic wit won’t evade this Instead of waiting once For us Savouring the curse In spite of us Evasive So abrasive In spite of her Understand the way it was for you Truth be told it’s unlikely to A caustic wit

"Brilliant & Groundbreaking" - BBC Radio Scotland

"...crunching and grinding infusion of electronic beats, via eerie scrapes and clangs on his cage-like waterphone instrument. Its delights are subtle, but keenly felt for a long time." - The Quietus
