love your starfish lyrics – i mother earth

to hesitate, to reel and stutter
in a free fall
to eat your grapes and slow the runner
you just need calm

don’t let me
i’m already

like a rubber band pulled
between two hands in a slow
defiance of when it might break
then someone laughs, all left feet
and charging rhinos… unfunny
but i know
no one here needs
your kind of redemption

you came in waves and tired
of all this celebration
you milked the tree, fed the starfish and said
all is calm

you must get
i’m already

with the whole event
held within your head like
old valentines, just when do you
start to fake a love
for jazz and blue green oranges…
it’s so hieronymus i know
no one here needs
your kind of redemption

how shallow ponds with the growth
of decades carry on
i’ll never know

on the whole, i can dig
the world’s offerings
and with the yes parade on hold
it did not lessen me when it
was said to me with the elegance
of daybreak that wherever you go
you take your pride,
wherever you go, there you are
that was the birthplace of almost
everything bold, poetic and stoned…
