about

Spider's Iridescent Rain Jacket

(or)

If it's true- if you are what you eat
I'd rather be a garden than a mound of meat



This album was created during the summer of 2016, and born in the fall.
I did the recording in a few spaces, mostly in the kitchen and in my bedroom. 'Dreamt an oasis' was recorded at the house my mother and I moved into when I was turning ten. Jake Kalmink and I mixed it; he also mastered it while I sat in the room.

released December 2, 2016

Track Name: one week in the garden
one week in the garden
went hungry
didn't know what to eat
sat under an apple tree
oh boy!
did I think
Track Name: good morning, momma
pull up the blinds to find that the world is shining
step outside to breathe up the life given from your mother
all that is not now isn't anything
all that is not now isn't happening

relax you mind to absorb the world in color
it took a life to find that the reason is being
all that is not now isn't anything
all that is not now isn't happening
Track Name: look at you!
when I look at you-
my arms which were once folded
are now stretched wide

why?
Track Name: sinking my teeth into a peach
sinking my teeth into a peach
this is the room where shadows contract
where ivy grows from ceiling to floor
fibrous flesh surrounds the seed
Cassanova has been said to be seen here crying

brush stokes on the wall are moving like the tides of the ocean
the face of the jaguar is transforming to mirror my emotion

right now I am alone

yet

we move together
Track Name: move in mystery
lover won't you just once make yourself clear?
although you're moving through mystery - I'm not
Track Name: double check the rearview // i'm gonna freak out
double check the rearview - I'm gonna freak out

all that is not now is not nothing at all
Track Name: equations of the enigma
when you wake up unsure if with God
there will be nothing that strikes you as out of the ordinary
ambivalence be the tone of the day
meditate ten minutes for each wake
yet, theres still anxiety you thought wouldn't be following you

when you wake up unsure if in love
everything affirms you that you are and are not
no end to confusion on the astral plane
when the sun rises does it bring the day
or is it I who chooses truth of my illusion
or no choice in following you?
Track Name: apple pear ginger
right now I don't believe I'd ever let you down, nor you I
let's give ourselves to love and see what that brings, baby
honey, I never want you to not want me around
I don't need to see you all the time,
thats what just came to my mouth
and I know you say you need to find yourself
you better keep going

do you want my love?
do I want to give you all that I've got?
do I want to give you all that I can get?
do I want to give you my precious love?
how far do I really want to go?
how far do you really want to go?

love!

how far do you really want to go?
Track Name: stardust
shooting star, flirting with my atmosphere
what is it that has drawn you near
wishingly?

sirius b,
I regret not knowing your gravity
I'd confess to you every suffering
you're there to witness each and every trial
I ask you for your wisdom and you stay still
thats all I need for you to do

candle flame, burning like the holy spirit
why is it that you have been split in two,
to be burning like a heart?

number two,
what do I got to do with you?
grounds in my coffee cup, be prophetic vision or a prankster?
what a paradox it is to be a lover!
you said you would like to be a dandelion
I though if you were
I'd photograph,
then,
eat you

morning sun,
what is it that you are to be revealing?
why is it onto you that the birds sing
with the sky as empty as the land?
Track Name: dreamt an oasis
I dreamt an oasis in the howling desert wind
among the vultures and the cacti
in the mojave

I saw a profile of a face in the Arizona sprawl
watched the earth turn pink-
pink as my lungs
