Twain is even more lost at sea,
And all truths point to the mouth of a woman,
Where both her whispers and her screams,

So long as its wisdom is sharp,
And it tells lies instead of promises.”
Dave Matthes, The Kaleidoscope Syndrome: An Anthology

Of blood and cracking teeth

Her lullaby will never end
till the world comes apart at the seams”

about certain materials absorbing the sounds of their surroundings like divots in a vinyl recording, and now, as the sun started to dip below the horizon, this concept chilled him more than the creeping cold. Put a needle to the mortar of these walls and listen to the screams. His own would be among them.”
