    <i>ded. to my ex</i>

    i'm an after-taste
    waitin' in ambush against your tongue;
    a mouth of memories, trigger'd
    everytime you sound the vowels in my name;

    a soul summon, beat against the roof of your mouth;
    an amputated drum head, you conjure our past through
    when you've travel'd nomadic through relationships;
    a gypsy searchin' for an emotional oasis.

    you conjure the medicine man.. hopin' he can
    hoodoo me back to you.

    you call him through tears, trailin' cheek bones
    exhaustin' themselves at your chin, before they beat the cushion
    your arms weigh flat against your breasts.

    you hold the past like that.
    hard to let go once addiction sets in
    now, you wrestle my halogram in your wetdreams.

    that's when you become "mysterious caller"; the silence
    on the other end of the line, feedin' off my voice
    like sound through acoustic tile.

    you hold the past like that.
    hard to let go once addiction sets in
    & now it's clear, that i'm your only fix.

    you should've learn'd that
    long ago/ them other ******
    can't fix your high

    when I was your wings that kept you in flight,
    black butterfly.. took you through the thermosphere,
    made you an exospheric constellation, who every evening
    swallows the sun, lodged in her throat when she yawns
    at the sight of the moon.

    them other ****** ain't fixin' your high, like i do.

    now it's clear, that I'm your only fix.
    so, you conjure the medicine man.. hopin' he can
    hoodoo me back to you.

    you cry til your eyes dry.. still callin.. still callin..
