Comments about Moonchild Diva
I Know Her
I know her.
Once she was a young beauty
but now she's an old woman.
Once she was full of hot rising sap
but now it's dried and cool.
I know her.
Once she ran in the woods and laughed
but now she's slow and stiff.
I know her,
in the mirror,
she not only looks gorgeous,
she makes love and
laughs and runs and sings out loud
she even flies.
21st Century Peace Tune
My father made it home from the war with just a touch of insanity,
married, made children, four including me
and he never had to wonder if his brother made it out alive,
his brother was shot, in the back, by the cops, in 1929,
stealing coal off a train in Detroit.
The war’s right here now, on the street now, at your door now,
and everyday you wonder about the ones you love,
did they make it out alive?
