about

unread cassette #183

credits

released November 7, 2015

Forgetting lyrics onstage is like

forgetting your speech to the Pope,
the one you practiced
with your wife
all the way
from Austraillia to Philadelphia.
The Pope stands before you
like a microphone,
shaped exactly like a microphone,
his white cap waiting
for your whispered feelings.
Marky Mark also is waiting,
listening nearby,
symbolizing the world,
satirizing the events.
You begin, falter, wince.
You look at your wife
as if she were a stranger
you don't even want to fuck.
If the Holy Microphone asked you now
what fucking was,
you'd have no idea.
You have forgotten everything --
the lie inside
every word is gone,
dissolving with it
all your loves and dreams.
You have passed into
the sweet silent guiltlessness of death.
If you stay there, they will remove you
to unpleasant places reserved
for the free and dead.
So you speak, sing, remember,
re-entering the world,
trying not to forget.
