no fear of a vengeful god
drives faith into my chest
to stave in the cage that cradles my heart
and tame what remains of the mess

so tell me i'm blessed

names of the hare

call me what you will
but i'm not so entitled
the moniker's fiction
the scripture/verse is holy libel

names of the hare

define and conquer
every creeping thing
seeking shelter
in the tagging and releasing

names of the hare,
invoked as dispersant
when you cast that spell
how can you tell
if it's working?

names of the hare


released December 5, 2016
Recorded on free software at holyshit soundsystem in Somerville, Mass.
