about

Written by Gary Heidt & band

lyrics

A body of work
A body of work made
A body of work made of
made of its medium—
bone needle drawing sinew through hide,
bone needle drawing sinew through hide,

art made of media. art made of media

I love a dead end
and wish you no means,
bite my chin till it bleeds.
A body of bones

arrows suggested trajectories.
arrows suggested trajectories.

Another tooth broken through this morning and I
miss the smooth space it replaced.
I miss the smooth space it replaced.

Every day
a new barb or barbicel
to pierce a new hole
in the tenderness I've given you.
