Fruit of the earth The rings of Saturn The epitomizing Roundness of the sun My own cranial spheres And longing stalks And the humble, breathtaking Onion Shoots Spiral in the direction of each other Spiral like unlikely lovers Here we go again Down winding roads Through the broad open meadows Of April green Of river green Of bursting forth Of onion green Fruit of the Earth Reach for the sky Up and out they climb Nature takes its time We eat before we should Not seeing things we could
2.
If I had to pay for every smile and sigh I would go broke, I would grow sick and die Losing all my will to share Cupboards filled with "I don't care" Love every, love every, love every, love every meal A cup of indifference, boredom and salt to taste Ten minutes lost, ten minutes gone to waste Use your ears and use your eyes Handiwork denying lies Love every, love every, love every, love every meal
3.
The Ice is everywhere Demands to be heard Demands to be felt and seen Something like wanting And not wanting To escape We flee like happy beasts To the outskirts of it all To Surry hospitality And California dreaming Visions projected In bright black and white On the bare red screen My own double feature Or some other creature You could have fooled me twice We lie like passengers To the outskirts of it all To Surry Hospitality And California dreaming

Someone said It takes two bullets To put you down She was right Or was it he I didn't see Head was down Staring at the ground Staring at my feet Dipped my quill In the black ink of loss Once before Oh Manzanita Don't say goodbye again I've hardly got the pen To write about the sorrow and the shame Again and again Manzanita my friend My dark Corsican love My creme brulee My cafe au lait Gonna go climb a hill Walk you off The best that I can Oh but I'm tired Uninspired Staring at my feet Oh my little apple You left me at the chapel Someone throw me up a grapple I wanna come down Oh Manzanita Don't say goodbye again I've hardly got the pen To write about the sorrow and the shame Again and again Manzanita my friend After all that we've been through A part of you apart from you

about

Almanac Mountain Portsmouth, New Hampshire

“a swooning, antiquated delight.”
-GoldFlakePaint

“his songs are large and lush and lathered in strangeness, built of a sense of experimentation that flips out of any convention the moment you recognise it. .”

-Various Small Flames

"a searching, fuzzy-headed, lyrically precise stab into reason and wincing memory."
