Ultimatum

from Trihornasaurus by Kick Ptarmigan

lyrics

Paintings, frames, pictures there.
Evidence along the stairs to your name.
Tiny holes, bases of walls.
Move-on swarm comes from what source?
Crumbs aren’t where I leave them.
They move on their own.
You not being here is an infestation.
This is my ultimatum.
Tidy home, marble and chrome.
This is my ultimatum.
Up against the wall, learning their traditions.
Finding underneath the door,
Their thoughts their creeds their swarm superstitions.
What food is okay to eat?
What rooms here were made for me?
What food is okay to eat?
What rooms here were made for me alone?
Closed door.
Sealed, unexhumed.
Still here.
If you get home.
Tidy home, marble and chrome.
This is my ultimatum.
Tidy home, marble and chrome.
This is my ultimatum.
