"Swarm" at LAVA on 8/13/14 with King Azaz, My Parade, and Hot Tears! video by Candy Johnson. substitute drummer Alex sits in for Zach.

// pull the wings up off yr floor / smear the blood above yr door / rip the veins that keep u warm / smear the blood above yr door // when i swarm, i’ll let u / you’ll feel locust wings crash by yr side / when i swarm, i’ll let u know / crush moth wings up against yr throat //

"Hidden beach" at LAVA Space on 8/13/14 with King Azaz, My Parade, and Hot Tears! video by Candy Johnson.

// oh! my teenage bed / i would long to write a song or a comic book / that would draw u close 2 me // then i got a little older / and i got a little fearful / siphon my spine to the beehive / or i get a precious earful, oh! // oh, u look so good / with yr motions chopped chopped chopped into twos / oh, u look so good / with yr frames running a little slow // as we pass through the cube of water… / we go from slow, gray, grainy / to technicolor time /// let’s ride bikes down to hidden beach / climb trees, smoke weed / and regret it / regret it, oh yeah // and it was not paper moon / it was not a paper moon / it was a hole where the light shone through the curtain / and i wouldn’t say i was hurtin’ // oh! the teenage reds… [repeat] //

Thank you SO MUCH to the organizers of Queer Between the Covers for having me. My ride had to cancel, then I missed train tickets by a day, and even though I had literally a day in Montreal because I squeezed it in between our show with Hot Tears, My Parade &amp; King Azaz, our last days of pick-up shoots on Phaesporia, and two entire days on a Greyhound, I really wanted to be there and to see my friends &#8212; and you made it worth it. Thanks for fronting the travel money to get me out there. Thanks to Morgan Sea for hosting me, Raph and Claire and Morgan M Page for being wonderful, ditto the PVD crew (Olivia Christiane Cathy Mimi), and to Jhumpa Lahiri for writing Unaccustomed Earth which got me through that ride. The book ended, I started to bawl, and by that time it was dark so I clicked off the overhead light so no one could see me.
