For my Father, Gary Drake.


Lovely Oil, stuck underground
It's blocked out by the bedrock
I know these words are not eloquent, they misinform
But Enigma, they fit you like a glove
You live underground
Reach out through rock
You're seeing years.
places a weight (on your back)
high potential
Lovely Oil


from Stripped Down and Out in the Cold, released December 26, 2013
