lyrics

tabula rasa
new york, april 1995

jagged manhattan skyline
(monolith spires piercing heliotrope mist)
feeds my gaze
avoiding yours
and i hope you gather
it is not reluctance to respond
but inability
(christ, have mercy
lover, take pity)
the back of my neck scorched by expectancy
while checkerboard tiles
in the stranger's kitchen
we presently occupy
persevere with sadistic undulation
i am too dizzy to remember my name
a condition
oddly recurrent
since you began pervading
my marrow
(i am incapable of identifying...
cannot distinguish...
cannot make out...
cannot detect...)
somewhere
intervening our inception and this sunrise
i emerged
sheer
tabula rasa
undeveloped and void of memoir
floating like so much gossamer
overhead
wispy
diaphanous
a specter
herself haunted
examining your distinctive scrawl
committing
to psyche
its chalky inscriptions
perchance to gain
knowledge of myself
