Star Feelings (prose) (part two)
At dawn, in the crying mornings of America, when people rise with the sun, off to their tragic lives, the paranoid red sun jumped into the palms of my hands and I held it there feeling the warmth in the mysteries of my flesh, the mysteries of my heart (the mystery of love) , and I held it there all day until I knew I had to give it up, and I threw it into the west and when all that color and light faded, I drew your picture with the stars and you were glistening magnificently in all that darkness; you’re the visible twinkle of star hope, and you twinkle in my heart all day, through light and darkness, you shine, star.
You’re a mystery baby and you knew I was crying with my head in the palms of my hands/ baby, you’re off there faded in the red mornings of a paranoid day/ sun mystery of lives, heart mystery visible out west and at dawn, you smile star lovely/ mysterious sun over America/ glistening I jumped out west and then your became the sun- that color of love/ “I got star feelings for you. You light the dawn I live under, so I need you to rise the day, my west sun”/ you’re all heart, the mysteries of stars, broken heart dawn/ love/ the Universe threw us together and knew you are hope/ America, all with your color over darkness/ mornings knew it, and made our hearts visible baby, color/ I held you up there, my crying blue eyes/ my light stars shine with paranoid light/ I need you to shine heart... all day until I jumped out west and I knew you were hope/ “I got star hope, and I held a smile and star feelings for you. You raise the red mornings in the east, and when the darkness falls, you become a star of the night”/ you’re the red sun, and when you fell... I was crying/ give me your feeling of stars shine heart with your picture on the red sun mystery of lives/ you’re the heart twinkle baby, and you are red Universe and we’re off crying hearts of America, and I need to see your crayon eyes glow and taste your candy apple red lips/ you were the color until you faded and fell off sun/ out west and you held my heart/ I said: “I’m in love with you... let your light shine over naked life”/ if I had one wish... I would wish for you/
“You’re the Universe baby and I need you...”
“So tonight when I went out for a cigarette, a saw the picture I drew of you in stars glowing up the darkness... do you love me now, Goddess? ”
