(C. Robertson 2017)

She's Frankenstein's daughter,
and she's built a man in her head
from bits and pieces
of things she's seen or said
but she can't get
his feet on the ground
his eyes won't open
and his heart won't pound

she imagines he's electric
but his hand is cold
she imagines he has
a noble soul
she tells herself
convenient lies
and hopes that he will
open his eyes

but his eyes stay closed
inside her dreams
it doesn't matter
how she screams
the table rocks
the table shakes
but she cannot
get him to wake

she's Frankenstein's daughter
she's built a man in her head
he's not living
and he's not dead
she's Frankenstein's daughter
she's built a man in her head
a man in her head.

Craig Robertson Boston, Massachusetts

I live in a landscape of ghosts and scientific oddities. Memories surface like flying fish in a glassy ocean. Songwriting for me is like a spiderweb; the strangest things fly into it.
