1) Electric empathetic entanglement 2) This one's for the students, and they know who they are...



This day of racket
and everybody squirreling
My idiot heart won’t stop beating the distance,
no, never,
and neither should yours
We all have ragged fingers
Sometimes it’s too much winter,
formulaic people crushing people
smoldering cars
I have a desire I have a desire
to build you up in lightning, make it glow
In love with your fire, so weird in your wire
Your head against my heart, won’t let it go

It’s more than anthemic,
this screaming romantic,
the thorns and owls entangled
empathetic with our arms out
lumbering stars

When no one’s watching
out for each other
our lungs like punctured
weather on the pavement, spinning
heartbreak into dumb wars
