One last dance on a Friday night

I want one last dance
before I go to sleep
one last dance
last kiss

I want one last dance
on a Friday night
watching the disco stars swirl above your eyes

One last dance
and love never lies
and love never dies

 reach for the ceiling

 capture the scene

Immortal sleep

The forevers

They are the forever's and there are 3
they have been
and will always be

They are the forever's and there are 4
they are
and has been

They are the forever's and there are no more

I'll reach down

I'll reach down from Heaven to save you
I'll reach down and touch your cheek
I'll reach down

Swirling mists of rainbow tears
swallow away your fears
never singing, never ringing
I'll reach down

Behind the doors of Pharaoh

Do you remember kissing under the buttresses of Pharaoh?
Golden sun of Ra
so long ago.

Buried by the sand
taken by your hand
you guided me away from Akhenaten
to the rising son.

I saw the hammers rise and fall
empires lay in ruin
but I still remember your kisses
behind the door of Pharaoh.

Hearts, tarts and other smelly things

Taking the drain down Columbia and through Richelieu
snowflakes falling
whiskey bottle shining.

I love it down here
among the bungled and the botched
sapphiric and vampiric neon globes line our path

Meth that is crackled and rolled on the spot
no hope or mercy
just a hot pipe singeing lips.
Cold memory sears my tongue.

Do you remember the kiss?

Glittering dreams so far away
waking moments stolen by assimilated screams

they are always putting wires in my head for
the things I did and said
but the written flesh is alive
and those are tears you cry

Summer set
winter rise
frosty plume of breath across the neon netted sky

This is more than anyone of us can bear.
