Track Name: Nerve Tonic Panacea
Radiant silver whistles
cleaving 8-toothed smiles
in a darkened chamber,
the warehouse--you recall

Still I here dream, these whistles
to little--no--avail;
a glowing, mounting pressure
massive, at my back
salmon-bright their eyes
bursting at the seams
Who knows how long
Till the trembling comes back?

Not a poet, nor a child,
chew the meal and
reap the tail
Track Name: Outopia
Nowhere to go

’ει ‘η ’ευδαιμονια θαλλοι δια της γης, ‘αι των ζωντων χαραι ’ουκ ’οφθησονται ‘υπο των πολλων ‘ους ‘ο Θανατος συνειληφεν ’εν τηι κακαδαιμονιαι.
