darlin’, swollen dreams
stretch the ceiling
ball of music in tan skin
and gold miners dancing
look out they’re coming through
with their glass-scratching fish-hooks’
cold rusty gleam

if they pop this cockloft top off us
drifting in, sifting out, clogging
unclogging quiver, quivering
pick one, we’re going up
through a hole in the ceiling
so dust off your wings

let’s fly to the summer wind
that made them all give in
to all their hopeless whims
we’ll start again

if they try and drag us back down there
with their spear-guns and fish-claws
and chrome-plated pictures, picturing
look out they’re watching you
with their sin-chasing eyeballs
bobbing about
