Little Earthquake

from by Jonathan Segel



from Jack & JIll "Chill and Shrill" 1995


hey yon pale one, saw you coming half my life ago
your order’s only nun and so far left to go
i can’t tell you what you mean to me
i can’t tell you what you do to me
but you know that i love you when it’s me youre making love to
hey little earthquake i thought i saw the ground shake
hey little earthquake i thought i saw the wall tumble down
hey you looking through the blue
a faint call to my ear
tell me what is true
i’ll tell you what i hear

your craziness importune
offers telling fortunes of
the incense i smell
what business is it of mine?
what had those other madmen foretold?
what clouds often come?
what forms awake?

i beg you long of leg
i try my whole life long
find me to tell me why
take me where i belong
