Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Thoughts Before the Sun

Thoughts Before the Sun

Deep liquid dark.
Caffeine coursing through my wet.
Light it bring to me.

Let us lattice.
Ain’t no free lunch to give away,
just a bunch of fee.

Karma curves around in end
to cover sloppy seconds,
juicy fruits.

Each day a cavatina,
no second strain or repetition,
yet echo of the same.

In this pre-dawn womb
of dark and safe and caffeine quiet,
bulk of day is born.

My song I sing the same,
to get through day
unspreading pressing pain.

May the sky of sun be blue,
may the flowers flower
and love be true.
