And here half the block is out of juice
, the lights are low, and the music is live
. Today people clap ant the end of a song, and the heat is out. Perfect mood
for someone to slide closer to me
. I'm waiting for the storm
, rain, lightning, and darkness. I'm waiting for the morning to come. Perfect situation to wake up next to someone. But people are leaving out the back door.
As the lights are re-kindled and the fans regain their rotation, the energy dies
. Conversations stop, the music
misses a beat.
I feel this environment
, like a blown transformer, like pulses of energey rushing through the fragments of conversation
s that step my way. This place presses against my sholders and eases my head down.
And once again, it's busy and bustling. Everyone is moving like atoms, sitting still, but spinning. And you hear the hiss
like air being let out of a tire tube
, and watch the muscles relax
their grip on the joints
of their victims.
Everymorning I burst trhough barriers,
consiousness flows like dead spinal fluid carriers.
and napalm burns in the arms of a nation
that's seen it's own beauty underneath nuclear mushroom clouds.
Consiousness gained through ancient shrouds,
as holy songs resound in a far away place.
When behind each doorway
something sacred menaces,
to steal our hopes and dreams
and fill us with empty hands.
