Track Name: Preservational
some people are
some people are
drain holes

I could hardly make connection
since the second grade
twigs and branches
mostly paved the way
so I built myself a house

some families are
public transit
some families are
wish foundations

I almost had no clarity
to someone got rid of me
surface pieces
shed along the way
cauterized my skin
Track Name: Present
bittersweet history
always coming and leaving me
somewhere up ahead and behind
until the two are aligned
in a sharp decline

the best aphrodisiacs
don't include ever looking back
to follies buried in the past
and mined out of an old hourglass
for a misguided forecast
Track Name: Observational
it's hardly a night
to cough up my offering
to talk feels trite
and unimaginative

i rather people watch
till i fall out of view
another city center is
another zoo

sometimes i wish
that all my stars align
then i remember
that'd only leave me blind
