(T. Downing)

nowhere do I see what I started with
nowhere do I see what I've begun
I feel, in the basking heat of day
the cold charge of a neon sun*

I sweat (I can't stop)
I shake (the shaking)
I rattle like a handful of bones
I stop (to look)
and start (to find it)
the ringing of a million telephones

I'll be OK tomorrow (if I just)
detach myself from what goes on
whispering promises on the wind
(will find I have already gone)

I try (I sweat)
to stop (the dreaming)
as needles prick the flesh
I call (to you)
to stop (the dreaming)
but you just wanna know what's next

like the savage (ferocious)
chanting old native prayers
to a loving god
see the lines in front of you
the lines drip down like blood
