The Blue Fish (pet)

from when smart girls do stupid things by LJ helpert



More play in the literary realm of "Deconstructionism" where symbol becomes sound, image codes into a solitary lexicon. The BPM was created by Midi-Harp and Broken old Typewriter. This is the final archetype of the EP: The Heart-As-Dried-Winter-Acorn and The Story Of The Spanish Cafe As Told By The Pet Blue Fish.


I Don't Want To Hate You
But I Don't ...Anything.
The Resistance To Hatred
Has Taken Me Whole.

And I Almost Want To Sing Still
Til You Wake
But I Know You Are Dead
And You Always Were Dead.

Wish You'd Go Away
Wish You'd Go Away
But How Can You Tell
Something That Never Came
To Go Away.

I Want To Repeat
I Mean I Want A Motif
I Want To Cetrifugally Suck
It All Back Into Space.

And You're Not Gonna Get These Words Either, Mister
Do You Know How Long It Took
Just To Wrap My Unusually Small Heart
In This Stitched White Linen Square
And Hand It To You There
And Watch You Stare.

Wish You'd Go Away/We Should Go Away
But How Can You Tell
Something That Never Came
To Go Away.
