Track Name: Reconfiguration
something went haywire with the faculties that recognize the root of my desperation. poison clouds my mind. I satiate myself with drugs or mindless entertainment rather than looking inward to remove the cancer. keep taking the easy way out. keep trying to make better of myself but I'm consistently deterred by the simple distractions of dropping out. time to think about reconfiguration.
Track Name: Bad Parenting
mother needs a bit of rest. baby sits by mother's side in a carriage swaddled up in a cotton blanket. mother smokes and chews her nails on a park bench anywhere, ruminating on the course that her life has taken. mother glances at baby. mother glances at her wrist. sleep eventually comes from the sunlight and the hum of the insects in the grass on a warm summer's day. mother wakes to find she's shrouded by the merciful dark of nightfall. in a daze she staggers up and pushes baby into the lake.
