so so wonderful

blinkered lights went off
i was softened
by the night's blanket
stolen off the porch
and brought back to bed
astro black midnight blues
hues of me and you
central park green
verdigris of the sea
the blue the black
the bruising night
the red the red
the red red light
selah selah selah
say what time is it
say what time is it
it was pastime for us
to defend ourselves
against the
death-dealing system
the breath-stealing.
and we knew it but it
was still so fucking hard
and the brick wall the
every congealing thing
worked against us
but we learned how to change
how to make their game obsolete
change ourselves and our ways
it was all so wonderful
