CD Baby



 thirty three and one third

revolutions per minute

of dirt and longing

 the needle glides silently

like the memory

of a lover's embrace

the speakers whisper and crack

until the void-colored wax

unravels its poetry and its ghosts

"harmony makes a heavy love"

she said, though her eyes

were filled with tears.


 'Love & Coffee' is the written companion to the ongoing series 'Love & Coffee Tapes'

Love & Coffee VIII - Honey For You

when the world leaps forward something must always be destroyed. standing in the cracks the watchers gather memory in and try to see what ultimate nothingness has in common. this is an accidental courting song not unlike our universe. this is a period of time. this is a crooked record bent around some daydream vibration you brought me to. this piano is a little out of tune. this whole testimony i would trade in an instant for another look at the clarity of you.

i have seen the coast of california
i have seen a man with nothing left to say
a little life and a little death love
passes through us every day

honey for you anything at all
a bird that sings or a fortress wall
if you need me i won’t be far
honey for you anything at all

i have seen the curve of days unending
i have seen the greatness of the year
compared to the motion of your body
nothing has ever seemed so clear

i have seen the face of one in many
i have seen what i thought could not be true
i have been a fool for what shall perish
but i have never seen the likes of you
