    "Wren's Nest" Lyrics

    Like at the wren's nest
    Like at rock eagle
    Ironies swirl and hearts are twisted taut
    Around their pivot points

    The stag scrapes his felt on a scrubby dogwood tree

    Like at the warm springs
    Like at key club
    Residuals are what get to one
    Reach toxic levels with time

    Even the pretty fawn is full of wolf worms in the summer

    Oh, so horribly intensely I prayed
    Let me evaporate

    But the dying autumn leaves are beautiful, too

    Like on the flint river
    Like at the mica mines
    Conversations escalated
    Voices trembled and cracked

    The barn owl's white belly is like a flash bulb
    Instantly illuminated by a moonbeam
    As he swoops silently before us
    Toward a fateful meeting in the forest

    Oh, so horribly intensely I prayed
    Let me evaporate
