Laura Gilpin//The Two-Headed Calf

Tomorrow when the farm boys find this freak of nature, they will wrap his body in newspaper and carry him to the museum.But tonight he is alive and in the north field with his mother. It is a perfect summer evening: the moon rising over the orchard, the wind in the grass. And as he stares into the sky, there are twice as many stars as usual.

La Dispute//Nine

I recall once on the church steps When I moved to kiss your chest How we paid such close attention To each sweet and stuttered breath I should've stopped to paint our picture Captured honest pure affection Just to document the difference Between attraction and connection I can see all of my friends and I break into empty buildings When the coast was clear With backpacks full of beer We'd throw our bottles from the rooftops At this city-it looked endless Guess I still don't see the difference Between real purpose and that urgent adolescence And I remember in a basement sharing sweat With all these stranger boys and girls "We'll change the world!" We sang "We'll change the world!" But Nothing seems to change and They say none of them will listen But I still see much more power in that basement Than in heartless politicians And if we get beaten by this winter If we get strangled by regret, just Let our love of life intensions Gasp in sweet and stuttered breaths, and Have them lay us in a basement Smash some bottles on the ground, and Say we couldn't tell the difference Between the feeling and the sound Remember not our faulty pieces Remember not our rusted parts It's not the petty imperfections that define us but The way we hold our hearts And the way we hold our heads I hope they write your names beside mine On my gravestone when I'm dead And when we're dead let our voices carry on To find a better song To find a better song and sing along
