Normal History Vol. 446: The Art Of David Lester

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 33-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

Trapped Against
Swing the wax cradle
in the burning tree
Lay flat in rusted cage
Pale moon of a half face wakingyellowed up by fear

He is the thing he hates
He is the thing he hates

Every swing releases
the scent of blackened spice
Fast sweep of hiding
feeding up the sky
Crystal splinter
and hiss against the sun

He is the thing he hates
He is the thing he hates

“Trapped Against” from Dovetail (K, 1992) (download):
