Well the Rocks and the Quay
Secrets of the city
Come on and help me out
Dig me up a little history

Bottle mossy greens
Cicada symphony

My friend wed and I danced
Faked a reverie
My arms around the waist
Of a girl too large for me

And when I held the door
What were you waiting for?

Demon girl said
“Hey porter
Now you’re doing exactly what you oughta”
And when I winced it rained
And I was staring
At that blurry wretched bridge again
Those lights were drunk and shaking
Under the rains caress
Like liquid needles
Like a strangers tenderness

Spittle from a window
Or sleeping by a river

Legs were jelly aching
Squelching balminess
Some chorus of bats
Leading me into this
Hot mess

All these rotten weeds
Into the earths damp seed

Oh come on and to and fro me
Steal some magic carpet ride
Honey roll me
Into moss
Into moss
Into soot
