    TALON OF THE BLACKWATER (AND GRACES)

    Somebody pulled the hair right out of my head
    something so small
    'bout a quarter size
    not me that's pointing a knife
    admit that you're wrong not to matter--

    Don't you remember anything
    denting the car, the machete
    stealing bread and meat under your jacket
    get afraid and lie
    get afraid and twist things up
    your riddle
    underneath I go--

    Scraping up the sides and dropping down
    talon of the blackwater and graces--

    Hurling shotgun shells at a wedding party
    brother half-cocked at the pulpit
    nausea always skimming just beneath
    what's cheated you--
    it's all coming up--

    keep it down, keep it quiet
    it's a tailspin
    let's just get away--

    Scraping up the sides and dropping down
    talon of the blackwater and graces--

    So put me in your dress and step on my shoes
    tell me how much you like them
    take my picture, press it all over the house
    tear this roof off my head
    this throbbing in my heart--
    keep it down, keep it quiet
    it's a tailspin
    let's just get away--

    Scraping up the sides and dropping down
    talon of the blackwater and graces-- Show less
