Track Name: I Dreamt I Dreamed
Dreamt about a city rising over the water
hummingbirds were feral, fighting over the feeder
Little birds, do you flock in herds?
No, in this case eah one on their own
Little birds, do you hear what I heard?
Jets are leaving contrails again.

The day before it rains
the plans leave traces of butane
Clouds of mystery straight lines overhead
Slowly fall in the windless sky, I think I'll go back to bed

Dreamt about some buildings, perched high over the roadways
Roadways crisscrossing, nary a human in sight
Little birds what do you prefer?
Flying backwards, or flying upside down
Little birds did you hear what I heard
The hiss of a chemical plane fart

Dreamt about some people, televisions for heads
Sparks flying from antennae, the way they talked made me dread
That I didn't know if the sparks would ignite
the feathers of the hummingbirds to continued to fight

I dreamt I dreamed I dropped a doppler
I dreamt I dreamed I shopped for gawkers
I dreamt I gawked at all the shoppers
running by making doppler
Track Name: Pray for Pasture's Posture
Sun through fog shines
Brilliantine branches
Flicker landing among grackles
some hidden sign makes them fly again
Mist mutes morning roar
Shifting vapor cold to the bone
Heir to the throne of dew drop on a winter morn

Footsteps trace a path not yet known
Blades of grass now grown frail in the frost
Bent over to pray for a pasture's posture lost
Track Name: Ice Skater Tucking in her Arms
All text is from

Earth slows down in winter
More forceful winds turn the earth into a spinning ice skater
tucking in her arms
Spinning earth and swirling atmosphere
together create a whole system

Adjusting to the blustery winter months
by slowing down the solid Earth's rotation

The moon and the earth are slowly drifting away from each other
It may be that rotation and weather are so intricately tied
that it may not make sense to speak of cause and effect.
Track Name: Clancy
Clancy the tabby cat saw a sax for the first time
Slowly part by part was shown and smelled
Tolerant for the most part, he didn't mind the silence

But when I licked the old reed and waved it in his face
he screwed up his face, he wrinkled his nose
and he backed away as only cats can do

Yucky yucky bad smell decomposing sax reed stinky think
I bet you never brushed your tail or ate cat food in your life
and by the way my fur is a little matted in the back
and what about my toenails?
Track Name: Napping
Napping when the gloaming falls
Eyes closed and mind loose
cherish the warmth and quiet
Track Name: Soup in the Kitchen
When I get hungry
I don't think of anything but soup in the kitchen
Soup kitchen's closed
Getting those hunger pangs
dang clanging empty bangingness
of nuture, my nature, a virtue to sup
