when i first looked upon your face with human eyes. when i first touched you with human hands. when i first brushed your human eyelids with human lips.
it was electric currency. it was being born again for the first time. it was orgasm x 1000. it was a tornado-like force, a tidal wave of emotion, an explosion of sounds that made no sound.
it was bliss.
i had found you again. after searching so long. and now we would be together forever. my skin crawled and prickled with sensual goodness from just being near you. i could feel the sensations coming from you, in the smirk on your lips, in the glint in your iris. i fell into you.
we were on an island. a beautiful eden in the middle of an endless clear blue ocean. the hills and fields were lush with fruit and grain. the forests were thick with wild game. it was paradise. utopia. elysium. heaven on earth. the word did not matter; it could not describe the truth.
we celebrated our bounty and fortune. we were carefree and daring. we danced a crazy frenzy for hours on end, and fornicated often, lusting for each other, and longing for offspring. our instincts guided us, we did not ponder much.
we had no enemies. we were lovers. we were first lovers.
The Chicago wunderkind's debut album is half lo-fi hip-hop pianos and breakneck drumming, half polished pop songs full of orchestral arrangements and whimsical but melancholic melodies. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 23, 2020
