E It starts with you on a Bmattress in your parents' old room, A clipping your toenails into the Eroom like the room will Afade and you will move onto Eother rooms,Gm and you will go to Bother places. Then the wedding, Then the woman passed out in the driver's seat at the order board at White Castle. We woke her up and she went 'round to the pick up window like she knew exactly where she was. Then I wept with my face in your night shirt, trying hard as hell to say "until death separates us", loosening the skin on your breastbone, I painted your nails and you sleep while I write all this down.

When we're on different sides of the globe, I thought we'd keep our veins tangled like a pair of mic cables, And if there ain't enough slack to reach that we'd solder them together cross oceans they'd stretch.

|Our faces     reflected        in separate windshields
|       our faces     reflected

|and all our body hair pricked up an elephant eyelash.

and follow your breath until death. Now even if the will to sleep persists I can't 'cause a harsh cloth, it grazes my blisters.

C

Today I fell asleep in a bath of hair. Hair that once sprouted from my own white wet chalk follicles. I swallow a coal and follow my breath and I did it with the grapefruit soap thinking of you. Bathed, shaved, and oiled, your legs are two skinny dolphins swimming between the mattress and the layers of bedding turning in your drug dry sleep. When I ask you to kiss my pulse you offer to start the shower. I want a verb and you give me a noun. What do you dream up while I tongue you down? (Chorus) x2 YDou know my build. You know my size. The degree to which my Cmeyes are astigmatic. YDou know my build. You know my size. The degAree to which my eyes are aGmstigmatic.
