Treasure Island

Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Stars and Faults


There's a fault in our stars
It's always been that way
To love and lost
To have never been loved yet
Still have lost
Even light treads
Leave some kind of mark
There's a fault in our stars
It's always been that way
Crossed from our hearts
Crossed still today
And the stars implode
And the stars explode
And our footprints are in the sand
Until they're washed away
There's a fault in our stars
It's not our fault
But it's here to stay
There's a fault in our stars
It's always been that way

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
