Myth Of Slop 03:29
if I had a clue what my body needs I’d dress my plate with something green til my ass is blue & appendages rot I’ll fill my trough for $2.70 if I’m staying enthused with what i’ve got what keeps me alive becomes my favorite thing At what point am I too a pile of that stuff A heaping mound is all I could hope to be i don’t assume that i’m alright i only assume that everything is slime if i’m a cartoon what makes you not? what good is a ripe but pulpless human being? when we live according to the myth of slop How sweet we find the gloriously smeared mess in between i don’t assume that i’m alright i only assume that everything is slime

On the outer edge Spiraling through All the positive traits i’ve forgotten All my common sense What is it worth All my common sense it comes and it goes Where are all of my things Where is my attitude or my empathy What are these empty palms What are these two feet straddling the double yellow All of my intent What is it worth I’m a soggy and prude impersonator All of my intent What is it worth All of my intent It comes and it goes Where are all of my things Where is my attitude or my empathy What are these empty palms What are these two feet straddling the double yellow All my common sense All of my intent Will we keep saying eventually? What a mess

Aqua 04:35
Intend to be sculpting life by intentional things Pulling instead toward an ugly being Keeping time while an other times too Hardly staying in tune Eventually if we two can be aligned I don’t believe it But wouldn’t that make things simple Instead it seems I’ve been tuned to be intolerant Of anything but my own impression Is that as lazy as it seems? Wouldn’t it suck to be that way to my favorite few Wouldn’t it suck to do nothing Apparently not, apparently not apparent enough to break or make me use my insight whether i’m trying or not would be irrelevant if i’m losing all my closest friends to my head Will i decide or just complain? I’m wide awake I'm just regressing Is that as lazy as it seems? Wouldn’t it suck to be that way to my favorite few Wouldn't it suck to do nothing Apparently not, apparently not apparent enough to break or make Is that as lazy as it seems? Wouldn’t it suck to think i’m already too far if competing thoughts complete me I do not believe it i know i’m wrong i just forgot oh, just forget it

Or Something 02:50
Isn’t it great and alarming too The shapes we fold into The shapes we fold into All the while, very eager to fold again And unfold in time Is it any better to look at The shapes we fold into The shapes speak It must have been a while Judging by the weeks Collected as dust on my bedsheets Oh the mess I’m made into Making a mess of all my time Watching it go Try the opposite Overflow from the brim Running all around misplacing pieces O What’s left to use? Dried up and dull Just like that I barely notice But what moment is this? A moment of peace Why can’t it arrive slowly and sweetly? O the stillness is ruined by ears ringing loud Just like that I barely notice Isn’t it great and alarming too The shapes we fold into The shapes we fold into All the while, very eager to fold again And unfold in time Is it any better to look right through The shapes we fold into The shapes speak Or something

It takes such a long time to move it takes longer to fall asleep waiting for eyelids to close ventilating at the nose keeping track of the moon what more can you do with counted sheep how steep the climb tends to look how level the ground when you forget to notice atop you forget to stay a little while stay as if there was not a reason to run about stay a little while stay at least until you're needed stay a little while stay adrift among everything, watch it swim around stay a little while stay akin to the background A dozen moves a dozen more to make in a moment or two which dozen should you choose? how many more could you find if you looked? accumulating piles and piles and piles do you carry them from miles away do you trek as far as you can will you turn around to see what has turned, what has turned will you wish that you had stayed a little while stayed as if there was not a reason to run about stay a little while stay at least until you're needed stay a little while stay adrift among everything, watch it swim around stay a little while stay akin to the background Imagine imagine that it all were to go, were to go what would it mean then? isn’t it bleak that in time, yes, it will does it make you freeze does it turn you around, and around and around isn’t it impossible to live and to contemplate it as it looms as it looms as it looms aren’t you clinging to your bones aren’t your bones clinging too aren’t you glad to be around for an instant aren’t you? what a privilege that we could stay a little while stay a little while stay a little while stay but rarely do will I strain to remember how this felt? hoping to open wide and collect the scent still i toss it around and ask it "what next?" will I strain to remember how this felt?

How do you get around? What slime do you use? Are you inspired to move? Or will you wait for a breeze? Banana peel? To slide you along from under If I’m like you Mysterious slug looking back in the mirror What is my spine to do? Stir this slush anatomy? Writhe it around? Or make it read as something that can hold it’s own weight I couldn’t imagine it so but I imagine myself anyway I just imagine me slow and low Is that unhealthy to do? Isn’t the life of a slug swell? Look at you frowning too What shape would you choose, O translucent animal? A perfect sphere? Isosceles triangle? Don’t you know I would see right through that form in a minute? Sure looks a lot like a pile of goo Posing as something whole Doesn’t it seem impossible to be content ignoring that shape? I couldn’t imagine it so Should I imagine myself as if I hold a nice shape? Or would it be better to look the other way? Then what would it matter if I’m a line or anything more? Is it time to Look the other way Wouldn’t that be cool

How would I ever know? I don't know How would I know?

Get a fresh pull through the bulkhead It keeps me pumping I’ve been playing all the same songs for a dog upstairs What’s news? I've seen nothing else Loop it over and over and again To lose my place in the round Reaming holes in my shoes with my board FX Loop it over and over and again Just to hear something else Am I facing the round Am I going deaf Put my face to the ground Just to smell something else Erasing all my plans formed for a bright space It keeps me humble I’d be better off with eyes closed than a nose upturned What’s news? I’ve seen nothing else Loop it over and over and again To lose my place in the round
