“We haven't lost a thing,” you said
The uncovering is up ahead
Still, we happened to miss
Massey Hall and Victor Bockris

The blessed and the blackest rose
In the aisles of the softer snow
Celebrated and grew
When 1998 fell through

Hardly had the day seen dawn
When you were feeling put upon
Disillusioned and gold
You left before the lights went cold

You said something about mystery
And decided what it meant to me
I invested in this,
Nabokov and Victor Bockris

But these beasts, with their wings
Won’t awaken anything

One red horse is on the way
No slender grace could make me stay
Daphne had begun, with ease
To demonstrate her expertise

I bothered with your minor works
I wasn’t too proud to assert
That they should have been hits
Like Blackout Beach and Victor Bockris

Virgin of the Birds San Francisco, California

Named after a poor English translation of a Salvador Dali painting, Virgin of the Birds treads a line between intimate, lo fi folk and the occasional grandeur of early art rock.
