Disordered Songs: poems

Text: excerpts from Fridge Magnet Cycle (1996) by Steven Mayoff

  • Iron Garden–man can fall fast & spring up next day on some bare iron garden (0:30)
  • Lazy Leg–still woman manipulates her tiny cry & watches an elaborate friend wax her lazy leg (1:10)
  • Let Go–(please) let go of time and you will never ask why you live for those who are gone (1:45)
  • Mist–read the sleeping life of blue mist parting over the still lake as a woman’s gown would to rays of cool light (1:40)
  • Moon Blood/Blood Moon–lick a bitter peach under showering blood moon (3:00…..)
  • Purple Forest–like you two I could recall a luscious shadow but only when rain is asleep behind a purple forest (1:25)
  • Skin Music–smooth egg robes soar above language from raw skin music (0:50)
  • Tall Tale–we tell lie about trip as I take leave by trudge (0:35)
  • T.V. Light–she always stared out of life most needful robbed of blue TV light (1:00)
  • Urge–(a picture drooling) an urge to produce delicateness smells a hot rose under cool rock (0:40)
  • Winter Chains–beneath a crushing symphony of winter chains the road dreams a delicate likeness of rain petals (0:50)
