I. THE AMBIGUOUS BEGINNING OF THE WEAKER VESSEL

 

CAN WE START OVER IN OUR WICKEDNESS

 

THE SEDUCTION OF AN ONION IS LITTLE & IS THEREFORE GOD’S APPLE

 

HE DESIRED NOT TO BE ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE

 

BUILT A LADDER TO HIS HEART

 

THERE IS ARCHITECTURE HERE I BELIEVE HE SAID

 

WE CAN WORK WITH THIS

 

MOST BRILLANT STUFF

 

WHEN IT COMES TO SNEEZING AN EFFIGY

 

OF ONE’S OWN

 

THE WOMAN APPEARS FINITE & CORRUPT

 

HOLDING SOMETHING ROUND

 

ULTIMATELY SHE IS ROUND

 

& FINITE & CORRUPT

 

THE REACHING THING

 

THE BLUSH

 

OF COURSE

 

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO TELL MOMMY & DADDY

 

 

 

III. THE AMBIGUOUS BEGINNING OF HAPPINESS

 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GETTING WHAT YOU WANT & THE OTHER HAPPY THING

 

WHAT DID AMELIA WANT

 

AMELIA WANTED

 

AMELIA SAID (NOW MUCH OLDER)

 

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL MY MOTHER

 

MY FATHER TOLD ME WHAT TO WANT

 

HOW MUCH KETCHUP HOW MUCH SLEEP

 

EACH DAY WAS A COMPLETE CIRCLE

 

A SUN & MOON

 

AMELIA SAID WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL I HAD NO AWARENESS OF WHAT I GAVE

 

I PERFORMED AS LITTLE AMELIA

 

& MY MOTHER & MY FATHER CLAPPED

 

THEY HAD A PARTY

 

AMELIA DID NOT CHANGE BUT UNFOLDED PREFERENCES

 

& SELF-DESTRUCT

 

AMELIA IN AGE WONDERS IS MY MAN OKAY AM I OKAY WITH ME

 

I DO NOT KNOW MY OUTPUT

 

& THEFEFORE I CONSIDER MYSELF LESS THAN HAPPY

 

AMELIA MUST THINK ABOUT HER FRIENDS

 

HER IMMEASURABLE OUTPUT

 

UNTIL ALL THAT IS LEFT IS THE POSSIBILITY

 

OF SOMETHING ELSE

 

AMELIA IT WILL BE YOUR GREATEST PRIVILEGE

 

 

VII. THE AMBIGUOUS BEGINNING OF THE FUN MASK

 

WHERE EVERYBODY SAW MONSTERS

 

DELANOR SAW THE FUN MASK

 

EAT CORN DOGS & COUNT BACKWARDS

 

DELANOR SAID

 

THIS IS MY KIND OF FUNKY DUNK

 

REDNECKS MAKING OUT WITH OTHER REDNECKS

 

LIVE A LITTLE

 

WHY DO YOU

 

WE GET TO BE EACH OTHER’S GURUS

 

FELT UP FIRST TIME SINCE JUNE

 

WENT OUT & SMOKED A BUNCH

 

IN HER BLACK DICKIES

 

W. THE CHAIN

 

THANKS FUN MASK

 

INCOGNITO SENT DELANOR ALL THE WAY UP FANCY MOUNTAIN TO SEE GURU

 

BUT GURU WAS ON BANK HOLIDAY

 

SO DELANOR WENT OUT & SMOKED A BUNCH WITH CORN DOG

 

& CROWD FLOWER & TOOK PICTURES OF HER HAIR UPSIDOWN

 

I NEVER KNOW ABOUT THE BANK HOLIDAYS SAID DELANOR

 

WHY THEY HAPPEN TO US

 

I JUST MISS HIM SO MUCH I WANT IT TO MEAN SOMETHING

 

CORN DOG STOOD UP TOO FAST

 

IT FEELS LIKE AN ICE CREAM HEADACHE
