YsUnited States Joanna Newsom
Float,
Feeble fleshbased lump,
Skim snow,
Treetops,
Paint with caterwaul—
Crushing flowers to see if they slacken—
Croak.

The Black Saint And The Sinner LadyUnited States Charles Mingus
Dancing,
Somewhere—

Where girls make your mind land a thousand miles offshore with a single wink,
And loosened buttondowns read clear.

In The Aeroplane Over The SeaUnited States Neutral Milk Hotel
In a house,
Flying overseas,
The drunken tuba player backpacking alongside you slumbering,
Post-raid of your two-month liquor stock,
Crashing somewhere bittersweet,
Gathering recoupment,
Growing unshaved.

The kids face a battle,
But you can't help,
You merely stand scared,

Trusting they win—
And if all else fails,
So have you.

Just Another Diamond DayUnited Kingdom Vashti Bunyan
A butterfly lands on your nose,
Staying there the exact amount of time you desire,
Stalling before takeoff,
Savouring a connection,
Far more than tall grass,
Far more than dew,
Something creating absence.
