Damn Clown

 

 

My guardian angel

Drunk on whiskey

Dancing naked with the clown

That passed her the bottle

 

Inhibitions let loose

Sailing away

With the gentle breeze

 

I try hard

Really hard

To be a good man

But that damn clown

Always screws it up

 

So I take the bottle

Disrobe

And start a fire

 

I might as well join in the fun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weep no More

 

 

Riding on a cloud

High above the world

So beautiful

 

Flowing along the line

Of her back

 

The one

Who taught me how to write

 

She passes in the sky

In rooted tangle

 

Only to give me

At last

When I am dead

Hope to return

 

I have seen her constellation

Dressed in green

Tailed like a rat

And then fall away

Here

With me

 

Burning in secrets

Of nothing whatsoever

I shall see her again

 

Ended is what I have begun

Only to begin again

Show me

Weep no more
