At dewpoint
we savor the water droplets
collecting like thin-skinned coins,
fat thin-skinned coins,
shaking and pregnant,
leaving a residue.
They slide and slither
down the air
to break further below.

At freezing,
crystals chafe the sky
in white hues, white white
hues in trees turned stone.
Death is pretty, an understatement
to the gray ashen horizon,
burning dead fires,
slumber, dormancy,
the flames frozen in place,
glinting light off of windows,
fingerling wind
through fist-heavy frosted trees.

It's a quiet sound the wind makes when,
14 degrees below freezing,
a quiet, steady, urgent howling
sets itself up for a long night of answers.
The questions blow across the waste,
the answers come back in again.

I'm not sure
exactly what that means --
answers following questions
following answers.

What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great, if the roof doesn't fall.

Death is pretty, an understatement
to the gray ashen horizon,
burning dead fires,

This is downright elegant Mikie.

(and yikes--ASOTS!!! I knew I'd forgotten something...sigh..the twisted one is gonna KILL me.)

::::::bumps head on walls::::::

I need pointless threads..


you
are ruination of perfect darkness,
every glance from your direction
turns good blood to filth.

melt me like sugar in the rain,
melt me like ice within the flame-
I am corrosive saccharine,
donít be fooled by the sweet taste.
everything I touch dies,
Iíve bent three flowers today
and tomorrow they will wither

::umm..yeah you inspired me...::

"Listening" to downward spiral?

Don't you mean "Becoming one with?" (at least if you listen to it the way I listen to it)

NIN is a two sided band.
