FIREMAN SISTER

Sitting out on your house
Watching the trucks arrive silently
(Earplugs) it's light as night
When the eclipse flips the switch
And the Halloween costumes
Come out of escrow

Every machine has a beak

You want to spray but it's not your role
You want to plead with the animation

But the tar burbles uneventfully
Three thousand miles away
And in this context you take the job
The way other kids take their parents' religion

You can say with absolute certainty
That you're on the take
And a hero at the same time
A heroine on the first day of herons

It's snow emitting that particle noise
