ICE LIFE

cookies baked with cutters, cookie cutters pull the shutters
over eyes that dare to flutter beneath sheets under the covers
my lashes blink like razors cutting through the down filled pillows
ripping feathers through the bedroom like a secret slumber party

out of the oven comes the cookies
perfectly uniformed tucked and bowing
to the labels, to the suits
to the television hands and knees, screaming

‘cause I am the snowman, I’m the abominable snowman
my tummy’s big and white so I can plow you over and over
my arms are sticks, my hands are mitts ‘cause I’m the abominable snowman
watch your fires, watch your pits ‘cause I will freeze you like hell freezing over

lying in the sunbed makeup
melting off like globs off icing
is anyone watching?
‘cause I’m so hungry, I lick me fingers,
I lick my fingers my fingers of icing

take your SAT’s take your ACT’s
let ‘em standardize, standardize test you
here’s a vogue magazine, go upstairs and study
the test date is tomorrow

(((hawk can, hawk can bend, hawk can see
I cannot straighten my esses
distants say they say it's asking season
I'll take my plate over there
for all I can see I'd rather take it raw
don't give a rat's head if it's alright, it's awry)))

have you done your reps? have you changed your hair?
have you changed your mind? there’s nail polish everywhere

‘cause I am the snowman, I’m the abominable snowman
my tummy’s big and white so I can plow you over and over
my arms are sticks, my hands are mitts ‘cause I’m the abominable snowman
watch your fires, watch your pits ‘cause I will freeze you like hell freezing over

all the good things that don't come back to us
it don't know how to be the expert all claw

about

eagle and talon Los Angeles, California

LA-based experimental rock duo Eagle and Talon have been confusing people since their formation. Splicing angular guitars and intricate rhythms with casio and scraps of musical theater, Kim and Alice Talon forge a sound that makes you wonder whether you’re being pet by a kitten or mauled by a lynx. ... more
