Why? I don't know!

Ground rule: The band's name doesn't count toward the syllable count.

Parts & Labor

Anthems by and for
The intelligent machines.
Electronic brawn.

Words in there somewhere
But most of what you can hear
Is walls of guitar.

(My Bloody Valentine)

Noodly bleepy sounds.
PBS station break song?
New Tycho album.


A single moment
Isolated, examined.
Spaces between breaths.

(Brian Eno, at least the ambient stuff)

No on else on here

Elmo Sexwhistle

(...come on, a straight up 5-syllable name? How could I resist?)


Abusive stepdad,
Acoustic guitar, boom box.
Songs and songs and songs...

(The Mountain Goats)


Girlfriends in comas,
Days like Sundays, last playboys?
For God's sake, cheer up!

(The Mozzer!)

No pets for sale here,
But if you want smart synthpop,
The boys can do that.





(...seriously, I can do this all night. Friends and I used to have long conversations in haiku just for fun.)

me of a trebly beacon
from a far-off world.
