Song No.7*



If I invert the world
just briefly
so the moon swims the lake into the sky
glassine glassine
would we set our clocks
to oscillate our month’s away?

If I invert the world
just for love
so the sky hangs down around the moon
stainless stainless
would we rise to fly
like aquatic birds of prey?

If I invert the world
just once
so the horizon divides twin sister moons
skyline eyeline
would we lick the sky’s rim
to numb the morning sting?

* From the original emotion picture soundtrack "Same Where Else" coming soon to a queue near you.

What makes you think I'm not? :D

Have you set up a posthumous legacy? A trickle of tiny works of art to go on as eternally as the internet.

Good. I'm glad you are thinking of your readers. :)

Readers?
You might want to use the singular :)

Ha! Well - you wouldn't stay and play nice with the other children ...

I'm sure I am not alone. There will be lurkers.

ps. I am finally almost finished Androids Dream etc. Bladerunner is like one thread of the story, bent out of shape and made into a movie. I still love the movie, but it has little more than a passing resemblance to the book and its ideas. Lxx

The other children kept making me cry.

Re DADOES/BR: That is exactly right
There are few stories that would survive that sort of treatment and still make an astonishingly great movie.
