lyrics

Opening, flight
Corridors end in doorways
Above plateaus
Everything is apocalypse
Branches angular
Perpendicular to mud
Burning fitfully
A pall of smoke, lightless

Once creek, today mere gulch
Wetland sodden; cracked grey now
The bones of flightless birds
Thoughtlessly scattered

Parched in the dry season
Drowned in the wet season
It was not always thus

Invidious one
You unwittingly seek
Profound fire
A primitive alchemy

Purification

This grove has dried and died
With time it will crumble altogether
The completion of life
Bloodlessness

Logos spermatikos
Departure and return
A course of filth
The cycle of the wyrm
Grandiose hideousness
Winter trees aching
A spring ratcheted to
Near breaking
