the second song i wrote for the fictional characters compilation started as an ode to special agent dale cooper from twin peaks, but basically just turned into a song about twin peaks in general.


the hesitance of fluorescence
still flickers in uncertainty,
even when the bulb is warm.

like cherry pie
and coffee,
black as midnight on a moonless night,
black as midnight on a moonless night.

you’ll find me washed ashore, wrapped in plastic,
with letters jammed beneath my fingernails
for you to decode.

the scent of burnt motor oil,
and tall douglas firs,
and fear.

your doppelganger
runs circles round you here.
