I Evolve

from by Peter Adams



when the fires did surround me
you were by my side
with your holy water hands
and sparkling eyes

we are not a prize at all
we are just the end

I was on the porch and you were
hiding in the dark
with the floorboards creaking
and the house falling apart

I evolve tonight

when the iron city rusts
and crumbles in the sea
tiny dots and dying leaves
will hover over me

to the other shore and back
sure I've found the end

bitches on their broken chain
of rusty party lines
sew the halos on their heads
and riot in their minds

so count the bumps on your head
where the palms are read
I believe it when you say
there is no way


from The Spiral Eyes, released January 4, 2005
