I LISTED ALL THE VELVET LESSONS

I LISTED ALL OF THE VELVET LESSONS IN A FOLDER MARKED ‘THIS DAY’
AND SCOURED THROUGH THE MOODS THAT CHANGE CHILDREN INTO LEGENDS
THAT PRAYERS PARACHUTE FROM MOUTHS ALL THRU THE BOUNDLESS BLUE
AND GOD NODS HIMSELF TO SLEEP WITH A BILLION BREATH HOSANNAS
 
PILGRIMS OF THE SKIN
WEARING WOUNDS LIKE TATOOS ON THEIR TONGUE
IN THE NOOSE OF YOUR LEGS WHERE I HUNG
IN THE GULF OF LOVE
BUT I AM A SOLDIER TOO
IN THE BATTLE OF YOUR BODY, I LOSE
IN THE TRENCH OF YOUR BREAST, I SURRENDER
TO THE GULF OF LOVE
 
I WANDERED THRU THE SNOW KISSED FLATS OF THE OLD CAMPSIE HILLS
AND INCANTED VOID WORDS TO KEEP MY BLOOD BRIMMIN
THE MEMORIES OF OUR MELDING BODIES HAVE BEEN CONDEMNED TO BLURDOM
AND ONLY A FOOL WOULD THINK TO REVIVE THEM
 
PILGRIMS OF THE SKIN
WEARING WOUNDS LIKE TATOOS ON THEIR TONGUE
IN THE NOOSE OF YOUR LEGS WHERE I HUNG
IN THE GULF OF LOVE
BUT I AM A SOLDIER TOO
IN THE BATTLE OF YOUR BODY, I LOSE
IN THE TRENCH OF YOUR BREAST, I SURRENDER
TO THE GULF OF LOVE
