about

For John Cage.

lyrics

Audubon,
Paradise Lost, one can see.
Automaton,
once a marvel but now I'm rendered as obsolete,
a fallen drone,
refurbished mechanical clone,
I was alone,
on my way home.

Stalactite stand shrugged Atlas man.
Beneath her skin stands misdirected when her heart's inside my hand.
There must be thousands of locations rooting thousand 'tomotons until they roam.
Now I'm home.

Her voice is resonating, her height may be my fall.
Behind the shadow's slinking through mental folderol.
Look past the treetops waving carelessly awry.
Like tombstones in the sky.

Gamelan,
faded picture Dorian Grey.
The great beyond.
I've wasted time until my jaw is weak,
my temper's frayed,
proceeding forward retrograde.

I was afraid.
I was afraid.
I was afraid going home.

Now I'm home.
