Track Name: The Eye of the Storm
there is no moon
but there's a light in the room
at the top of the stairs.

in my notebook you drew
a disturbing cartoon;
you caught me in my unawares.

i know you're with me—
i know you're with me now.
i can't come with you—
i can't come with you now.

a house without doors, yet so many bright and open windows, is not unlike a head without a face, yet with great, bright, staring eyes, open at all times—"how beautiful, how brilliant, how wise!"

I observe the flow
and hazy glow
of phasing globes
that hover and strobe
and disappear like shadows
of faces pressed against my windowpane.

Patterns in transit
through stages of decay
slither behind the ruins
of crystalline configurations
deep inside the surface of my windowpane.

(am i on the wrong side—?)

We have time to let go of things
that we do not wish to keep.
Rain blurs skin and
light cuts space—
a voice to bruise the air:
a sound that stings the air.
Flaws reflected
become perfected,
but for a face that was not there,
there is no repair.

(what do i see—?)
