techno songs about heaven play on radio by mud howard (Lucent Dreaming Issue 2)

techno songs about heaven play on the radio

by mud howard

in the South they skin snakes
summer is clean and streaked with bodies
the soft, mouldy eye of the storm winks
& your gift is your shyness

the synthesizer urges you to come forward
place your hands on the magic
amputated strips of astroturf
& inhabit your life

the new world will be built
by allowing gentleness to gather within you
subterranean trust in another person’s
body breaking down, atomizing into sleep

ignore love
name a planet after yourself
memorize a phone number
get held

today you are a teenager
tomorrow you go
