Head

Olmec-Head

The songs of the dead

Play softly in my mind

Bittersweet remembrances

Of friendships lost to time

I am closer to them now

In the twilight of my misery

Who knows what lies

I will speak Into the night

What cold comfort

I’ll garner from my deception

These evil days are mine

To endure alone

In the privacy

Of my defective head
