playTenant of Mystery

you dream of me in your bed
hello kitty hello
purple sheets are so gaudy but I guess that's all
you know

crawl on skin so grievous
their funerals breath you in
dominant humiliation
not so genuine

and that's why your
heart is so broken
that is why you remain broken

awkward excess gets you as
your enemies analyze
the dangerous thoughts you covet
and the ones you want describe
persistent passions besiege you
the tenant of mystery
the blacks the whites the mexicans
and all others in between
