The Abortion

All this time
I've been thinking
What if I had not been?
What if I had become
Something right?
Last in line

At my side
Found a friend
No, she turned around again
It's no surprise
Not to me
Ransom and effigy

I can see the wisdom
I can see the wisdom
End my vital functions

My vital functions
My vital functions
I can see the wisdom

Never saw it coming
Never heard it coming
Never had it coming

Don't blame the mother
Don't blame the mother, please
Don't blame my mommy.

All these years
I've been scheming
What if I, stole it back
What if I kept attached
Shackled there
Up inside

A ruptured drum
A punctured lung
Severed umbilical

Tried and marred
Soiled and bent
Prompted that pang, again

I saw the blood, grabbed a phone
Whats it feeding on?
Felt it kick, heard it breathe
Get this thing out of me

'Woke up to find that my head was in cellophane
In a dumpster in Hoboken
"Cygnus" inscribed on a hemlock in Central Park
Adoration and praise for the hunter

I'm laying my foot in the soil, now
Maybe I'll drink
Maybe I'll thirst

Laying my foot in the dirt, now
Maybe I'll drink
Maybe I'll drink it

Waving my arms in the sunshine
Maybe I'll dry
Maybe I'll wither

Waving my arms in the sunshine
Maybe I'll grow
Maybe I'll flourish

Back in the womb
I was nay but an axiom
Brought by mitosis, and
Billions of molecules

Lept from the zygote
Life, so far ahead
Reaching for certainty
Fain to embark, but I'm dead.

I'm dead
I'm dead
I'm dead

Murder
Murder
Murderer

Murder the surgeon for me.

Saw the blood, grabbed a phone
What's it feeding on?
Metatypical pregnancy

Felt it kick, heard it breathe
Get this thing out of me
Hark, the child of the swan constellation

Let me be close to the fountain again

Let me be close.
