i’m still dancing for you,
i never stopped
never could, see
even though you are

i twirl and twirl
over here
in my newfound Hell

wishing they’d all

(it’s just the world
gone mad,

not you and i)

your wave still hits my brain
your skin still crawls under mine

caressing my blood
as i tango with the poison

never did these old
leaden bones
strive more to
cha-cha up to Heaven

than Right here
Right now

above and below
i vow to remain

Earthbound Girl

feet pounding
a kick drum symphony
on the Mother’s back

is she smiling up a blessing for me
with each boom-sis-boom?

or am i just one more
‘one too many’
interloper stepping on
uranium cracks?

the mirror melts

i’ve danced all night again
right through the pain and drain
now here comes the gun-metal dawn

time has turned my victrola
into an unwound ballerina’s box

and i waltz myself to bed

thanks baby.

you’re a considerate dance partner
shadowing my every move
never missing a blistered step

let’s meet again like this,
just like this,

here in my unhallowed Hell

same bat time
same bat channel
same shimmering,
slippery star

“Goodnight sweet ❤ good night”
