[ Lindwyrm ]

Xe 1994 (ohio)



Pull us apart,  

Our sinew snaps oh so satisfying  
 
 The art of what it takes to break a soul fills our head in neat lines of text:
- - -[ Deprivation isolation - festering festering  ]

System communication limited to minimum input:
 [ Walk: ] Do. Not. Falter
   [ Observe: ] bruised open wounds seeping generational eulogies to the pavement  

\ Exhale \

Watch us come back together again.

And again.

/ Again /

We coil over ourselves - thrumming golden; secure.

Once more?
