Found beneath pine needle-crusted moss carpet in the Five Ponds Wilderness, covered in brandywine black mud, gripped in the gnarled grasp of the roots of a gigantic white pine.

Track Name: Side One
turn around inside yourself lay down under the big pine

they burn down the wicks like falling stars
and the rivers bend into two big arms
where the valley splits and we diverge in two separate speeding cars
yeah the truckstop trail mix in yr pocket
the bug bites on the back of your elbow
the torn backpack strap and the smell of a sleeping bag
and a plastic tarp as well

and the leeches wriggle toward our feet
and the mud is sucking at our knees
and the bobcat gives a howling scream
Track Name: Side Two
i’m opening yr time capsule too early!
i’m laying all the secrets on the floor
i’m visiting you on the backside of pluto
i’m knocking on yr door
