Free floating along the barbs and green, leafy plants –
where have we taken you, what have we done?
Fair blond – we loved you so, we worshipped your
feet and toes. What have we done, where did
you go – please tell us – gather and compose.
In the dark and on a trail of swirling dust and heat –
rays so bright – filter, intertwine – leafy plants, fern and dew –
doo bop doo.
Clop de clop, scuffle along – seek us now – we lost
you dear, we suffocate. We kneel – we fear –
slapped thighs, bound wrists – suffer quietly among
the light – my moon.
