Black Morning / Viscera (Hval Jenny)

I woke and found outside my door A black lake rippling against the hand Its tongues lick the flesh from my bones And replace skin with waves A bulging eye I called into the black lake and dove head Over heels into the water And pulled out my heart from the seaweed A pounding eye O it's golden, it's golden, it's golden I came back with a broken summer and a broken spine Grazed by the heat and stung by the night Tried yoga, couldn’t do yoga Wasn’t the stretches, nor the downward dog It was a breathing thing And upside doors, I felt my organs fall Through my throat One by one: liver, lungs, lungs, liver Lungs, lungs, lungs, LIVER! They came fast like fingers Inside-out in one snap And then the vocal cords Flowed like seaweed out of my mouth
