Along Cthamaline Stars (Roulette outtake)

by Toby Driver

subscriber exclusive


Live at Roulette, Brooklyn, NY, March 2017.


Taste my thoughts on my tongue
As my eyes stung
With new perspectives of hate
The blood of white light
Poured into the galaxy’s whirr
Sworn beyond the windowpane
In ruby isopropyl blur

I can feel my ribcage melting from the heat
Of the blaze in my heart
That’s imprisoned by intimations of God, inert,
Reaching through the bars but not quite
Able to touch the stretched-tight hurt
Or the flames in the street
There is no cross to invert
There is no flag to ignite

But I glow when I can fight for an illusion of love
I glow when I can fight for an illusion of love

In my second dream I’m on the volcano
Directing the fulgent rivers to go
Down the black cliffs to the tabular haunts
I walk the carpet of smoke out to Boösaule Montes

But home, I watch
The famished lunar seas rotate
From the banks of the mirrored marsh
Chained to a boulder rolling through space
Keelhauled along Chthamaline stars
