Poesi mens vi puster 53

Two headed boy Part 2

Daddy, please hear this song that I sing,
In your heart there’s a spark that just screams
for a lover to bring
a child to your chest,
That couyld lay as you sleep,
And love all you have left
Like your boy used to be, long ago,
Wrapped in sheets warm and wet.

Blister, please, with those wings in your spine,
Love to be with a brother of mine,
How you love to find your tongue in his teeth,
in a struggle to find sacred songs that you keep
Wrapped in boxes so tight,
Sounding only at night as you sleep.

And in my dreams you’re alive and you’re crying,
as your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet,
Rings of flowers round your eyes and
I’ll love you for the rest of your life (when you’re ready)

Brother see we are one and the same,
And you left with your head filled with flames and you watched as your brains
fell out through your teeth, push the pieces in place
Make your smile
Sweet to see,
Don’t you take this away
I’m still wanting my face on your cheek.

And when we break
We’ll wait for our miracle,
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies.
And when we break
We’ll wait for our miracle,
God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life.

Two-headed boy,
She is all you could need,
She will feed you tomatoes
and radio wire,
And retire to sheets safe and clean,
But don’t hate her when she gets up to leave.

    Den sangen! Det var lenge siden sist, Mr. Magnum. Takk for fin stund.

    Åå, den plata asså… må finne den fram og høre på i kveld.
