Counter Clock Wise


Cowboy Kate ~ Sam Haskins

I know a girl from inner space
She walks a path against the camber
And lightning raced across her face
Illuminating eyes of amber

I drew her face in cutout shapes
And radio waves delayed, unreal
Loops and reels from demo tapes
Define the way I feel

About the girl from inner space
Whose smile could melt my heart
And dignify the human race
Without recourse to art

I love her now – I loved her when
I dreamt her face in colour
The moon in wax to guide my pen
My heart my head my lover

Beautifull poem.
Interesting girl, but not as much as the other kate girl, the one who speaks with british accent and used to had a musician boyfriend.
