 One Flower Under A L.A. Freeway

Conversation With An Earthquake


I see you up high earthquake
Only where birds fly
Only where Gods are taken to die

When you cannot hold back your crumbling puzzle any longer, you will topple and spill us out in sacrifice

I see you up high earthquake
Only where scorpion and lizard crawl
Only where the sky is reminiscent of a howl that vacates its' cry into emptiness

I see you up high earthquake
Only where animal and man turn back
Only where the king Cobra lies in wait flat

When you have sunk the earth to our lowest human level we will know you are over
And we will begin to clean up your stone innerds one more time.
