world vibe


Thunderbolt Tea in a Bone Cup

Greasewood after the rain
lightning blue and metallic
a taste of silver ozein
a Greek word for smell
prickles on the neck

The lightning is out of the bottle.
Lead and stardust transformed become our skeletal structure.
Aquarius leaves footprints in metallic sands and lead-weighted cares
We get a way out. The U-turn? It's good! We had to retrieve ... the mojo ... get another chance.

Do the yin-yang dance, laugh forever.

It's been a long time comin' ....
you must hear what the people say ....
You've got to speak your mind
if you dare
It appears to be
a long
a long, long time
the dawn! 

- Crosby, Stills and Nash
