i'm walking to a place i don't know
i am moving forward
towards a smell of cow shit
without my book
when you're gone i like to open it
and scan the pages with my eyes
and let my whole body feel the same
no will to move

so soon there will be nothing
or we can only pray

you're not in such a bad place
you get goosebumps when you hear coltrane
we're in love with a sad green paradise
living uncontrollable it's all so comfortable

you claim that your life needs a purpose
well now, who taught you to be so selfish?

black out, turn pale, my name is not jordan
i lost all my strength in the garden
i couldn't feel your spirit there
instead stared so straight into the eyes of dogs
i felt the ultraviolet pull my arm

let us make love to noise
we can bathe while our dinner cools
but i think i've heard this one before, love
there is no love here at all
just neck and thighs

you put on the mustache hat backwards
and draped my great-grandfather's coat over your shoulders
the coat was lost and something more
you lost your warmth
but you've never left your body
and i wouldn't leave a body like that
