The Silent Treatment


The Silent Treatment – 1996 a piece with dancers and musicians

Argue, scream noisy action
Coded violent real reaction

Truthful soaring animal anger
Scornful, blissful actual danger

Living, breathing sensual speaking
Lying cheating telephone sneaking

Hiding, fearing hurt exposure
Live with that and keep composure

Yell, leave make them cry
Thickening fog, stupid lies

Hit me hurt me heart of stone
People pissing all alone

Life held back by a stupid coward
Love locked lust-addicted soured

The man walks toward you ready to kill
So kick his but then take a pill
