    Here is a new handmade version of Prince's Pine, with a stencil drawn by Amber Langanke (who designed the beautiful Haunt the House CD covers) & was lovingly hand-stamped by me. The back cover comes in either purple or green, the colors of the forest & it's shadows.

Stop haunting me with your name common as pebbles under my bare feet Each step I take away from you leads me doubled back until I stand in your garden First amongst the flowers under a rainless sky with it's unrelenting sun
2.
Sweet as Bee's pollen on gentlest breezing more bitter than the taste of wormwood in love with the dark in love with death kisses your mouth where my fingers might've been in another place in another time Pretty boy I would've made you mine in another place in another time Lover boy my dark winged sparrow
3.
Prince of the Morning walking in golden light high in the city your solitary citadel & when you closed your eyes it was for a long time & did you close your eyes almost for forever? Prince of the Morning your hands are lily white move clothed in darkness apart from common populace & speaking at length of what ails & moves you of what you love & what you hate & who & who do you love Prince of the Morning walking by columbine bachelor's button cockscomb & crossing lines to the stately house with it's many windows some were for looking out some for looking inward & who do you love

They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes he won't sing his sad songs any more he says his songs are far too sad but his songs could open up the truest heart the truest heart is filled with blood & roses They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes said his story was all wrong they were silent when they should've laughed & they laughed when they should've been in mourning They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes he won't let his fingers play up & down the neck of his guitar like a Spanish courtesan wearing crimson robes lips stained with wine They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes he won't sing his sad songs any more he says theres only so many sad songs a man can sing before life takes another path & he is gone

about

"Providence Rhode Island's Allysen Callery is the most bewitching and beguiling modern folk singer/guitarist you've likely yet to hear . Her excellent new mini CD what "recorded in a greenhouse by the edge of the woods with natural birdsong, frog and cricket jams" (it's true ) you can hear every slide up the strings and every knock on the body of her acoustic guitar in full , ringing finger style sound . No bluffing, no-frills, and a voice shaped by the Creator for singing."- Dynamite Hemorrhage (2017)

Prince's Pine is a small wild flower plant which grows in the forests of north america, you have to really look to find it.
Recorded in a greenhouse by the edge of the woods, with natural birdsong, frog & cricket jams.
