(from "lo-fi is chic."--2005)
PINIONED

pin my hands
against my back
you should know
that this attack
is not made
on one so pure
that I’d never
show you what it’s for
what it’s for

cause I don’t know myself
don’t even know myself

I’m not one
to confide
in a brother
with much to hide
in a place
a withered little room
in a race
finishing much too soon
much too soon

cause I don’t know myself
don’t even know myself

and I would place
all my crowns
at your feet
if you’d allow

one like me
with so much pain
so much hate
behind my shame
behind my shame
cause I don’t know myself
don’t even know myself
