about

Originally written for a special edition of TQ zine. Thanks to Andy Wood and Ashley Cooke for the synthesesia.

lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4, we all fall down
locus 5, 6, 7, and 8
1, 2, 3, 4, we all fall down

you said that I was
your favorite artifact
in the ruins
and as we scratched
at the bottom of
level 23
we found a
carved bone pendant

you dropped a GPS
datum point
I took a photo
of the object in situ
and one
with your shirt off
we bagged it
and tagged it
then moved on

the quiet of the site
sounded like white noise
I was one of the boys
and you should surely
get tenure for that

1, 2, 3, 4, we all fall down
locus 5, 6, 7, and 8

that was our last day
in Syria
