Four For Two                              


a good heart is an only child

leave me here I’ll find a ride

too quick

two gone

with a thought

an idea

to carry on


untethered unsung

what started continues

what was to be

has become

flying light flying blind

I don’t know if the blue heavens upon high

bless the yellow earth rich with tears

I only see the cold moon and the hot sun

come to reign 17 more years


eat affection and you'll grow fat

eat dreams and you'll grow thin


east of the sky

under the Jo tree

a dragon sleeps

with a torch in its craw

if you can steal it

then wield it

morning will not return

night will not stay

old men will not die

young girls will sleep

in a deep sweet sway

on a placid lake of dreams



we drank yellow gold

ate white jade

danced on the fire stones

till they destroyed the wall

of song


a simple heart is an only child

leave me here I’ll find a ride

with a jade girl

to the shades of her desire
