I found you just staring
just staring up at the ceiling
Just staring
you were just staring
while yr mouth just hung
kind of open

while yr mouth just hung kind of open
i heard my breath move in slow motion
while my mouth just hung kind of open
can you please get off the sofa?
and then you didn't breathe in
you just stayed kind of still
not breathing and
still not moving

(breathe in/breathe out)
I think of the smell of your house
(breathe in/breathe out)
webs hanging from your tongue
(breathe in/breathe out
breathe in/breathe out)
the ceiling fan shade keeping cutting

8 times we swallow

I counted to thirty
out loud but nobody heard me
out loud but no one heard me
my voice rang true to the open empty
room in the corners
where my mind keeps drifting
and I'm saying again
can you just breathe in?
Then do it again
(and do it again)
until the spiders leave your mouth

(breathe in/breathe out)
a familiar sound
(breathe in/breathe out)
can someone give a fuck?
(breathe in/breathe out)
all my senses keep cutting out

the body's in the open
