Memory Wipe

Loom thread under wood-born
fingers, holes in molten core,

Core Movement

Core Movement

Fleshfall through bent mattress, I catch
floorboard nails with mine

Fans of History as an Abstract Concept

Push a racist in the sea,
Men that lived abhorrently,

We’re making our own history,

Smash that racist, bit by bit.
