Johnny Powell and the Seasonal Beasts


bone idle and bruised inside

more of a twisting pain

up tight


then the yellow drowned me out


the get-out clauses flooded in

i was faithed out

with arid sight

yellow cables dragged me out


please bless us

bless us now

for we are blind


a puppet stringed

i never know

that nature brings

what it's told

i get measles, pox and colds


limbo'd and bowed down

we prostrate

hidden lives


inside is the surprise


ego like dam

faith washed in

and out

weak prayers like wine

temporarily kind
