Escape Velocity


Rosemary Laing ~ Flight Research #6 (1999)

Take me with you when you fly
Sign my name upon your eye
In smoke and blood and cauldron dye
Hope returns the weeping sky

Take me with you when you dye
My name upon the weeping sky
While smoke and mirrors trick the eye
And cause the days to faster fly

Take me with you, blink your eye
Tomorrow into the past does fly
My name is writ on cauldron sky
And days are coloured in weeping dye

Take me with you, take my eye
Past the fields and feathered sky
My name is cast, an amber fly
My days are dust, just ochre dye

No I'd rather go with the phenix rising from the ashes..

Pisces Iscariot said...

Thank You Ana & CherryPie
Candie: first you gotta burn!

Candie Bracci said...

yeah,you're right..
I've always liked the phenix cause it raises from nothing..but I won't burn for it or anything else!
