Flying Shoes

god gushed forth like foals in spring
and i felt raw to everything
the candle flickered in the night
out beyond what’s wrong and right

blowing past the brides of prey
those dollar garlands on display
a mystery sickness digging in
soon the endgame could begin

blue sky good news
you put on your flying shoes 2X

you went dancing until dawn
the pulse and beat still carry on
behind the joy and fear and rage
a lion chews his paper cage

the bombs fell south like sudden rain
then you could feel your heart again
all logic scattered in the rush
bass drums beating through the bush

blue sky good news
you put on your flying shoes 2X

i have vows that i won’t break
and furtive pilgrims to awake
the movie skittered off the reel
so much past you’ll never feel

but you’ll remember when it’s done
that one day we blessed everyone
the cyclone and the ferris wheel
a creaking pause then down we squeal

blue sky good news
you put on your flying shoes 2X
