Perfume Genius- Too Bright

Someone has figured out what happens when you build a room with mirrors on the ceiling, the walls, and the floor and nothing else in it. The room is pitch black. Someone else stuck a light in that same room and the mirror reflected the light forever, like a hallway Einstein might have dreamt. When […]

Bob Schneider- Changing Your Mind

    The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization recommends when collecting evidence of his existence: “one should photograph each footprint individually. Place something common next to it, like a soda bottle or a pack of cigarettes to indicate size and dimension. Do your best to preserve the integrity of the scene. Try to photograph the prints […]

Jonsi- Hengilas

  For Adora I am not supposed to drive her vehicle. It is supposed to wait in my parking spot. But the first thing I did when I was told she was gone was to run downstairs and sit inside her car, turn it on, and drive to the store. The second thing I did […]

Sufjan Stevens- The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out to Get Us

  How the Wasps Come In   I wrote this poem in the shower. I wrote this poem when I realized the top of the window in the shower had dropped and made an insect entrance. I wrote this poem days after meeting new wasps tapping at my kitchen window and wondering how they were […]

Johnny Flynn & Laura Marling- The Water

  Sinking has its own treasures, as you might imagine, if you don’t already know, and I hope you don’t. A boat sunk shimmers only because anything would under the pursuit of algae. Inside that ship blue dishes and yellow chairs still invite guests to dinner and serve only vegetables: moss and promises. It lies […]

Graham Nash- Sleep Song

At night, I banter with the zebra who has lost its bones and uses my bedroom ceiling to maintain its stripes through the blinds. The glass of water I’ve arranged in case I get thirsty sits in front of the digital clock, and I never drink from it; it has been poisoned like holy water […]

Nina Simone- The Twelfth of Never

Bothering me most is the idea that someone else might become acquainted with the ritual of your feet just before you put on socks.  Second to that is anyone else having my impatience while you hold a washed dish over the sink until it completely stops dripping before you will dry it. That impatience is […]

James Blake- A Case of You (Joni Mitchell cover)

If I was looking for proof of us, our fingerprints would be on nothing. If they marked the skin of a tomato, we’d have cut it up and reduced it to juice for a sauce. If they were once on the window on the twelfth floor of that hotel room, housekeeping would have wiped them, […]

The Low Anthem- Oh My God Charlie Darwin

I dislike people as a general rule. People are things ahead of you in line, stealing the cab you hailed, shoving past you, inflicting their neuroses upon you like black magic. I think most people dislike other people. It’s why we misuse car horns, our elbows and wear sunglasses in the shade. It’s also why […]

John Prine- Hello in There

There is a woman who never had pets or children but she owns three brooms. Each broom serves a purpose. One solves the leaves in the fall and the pollen in the spring. One solves the grains of rice and the kitchen crumbs. And one keeps everything else out, things try to follow her in […]
