new frontiers...

stunning watch for the grimace
in balance with the milieu
wake up screaming with adrenalin
silvering everything in vision
to erupt in a bright blue spark
her negatives radiate each time
reaching some altitude now
failing to land on the dance floor
nothing is wrong to your east
stop signage disappearing from view
can't say anything this time of year
purring along to the beats of fear

A Rainbow In Curved Air

And then all wars ended/ Arms of every kind were outlawed and the masses gladly contributed them to giant foundries in which they were melted down and the metal poured back into the earth/ The Pentagon was turned on its side and painted purple, yellow and green/ All boundaries were dissolved/ The slaughter of animals was forbidden/ The whole of lower Manhattan became a meadow in which unfortunates from the Bowery were allowed to live out their fantasies in the sunshine and were cured/ People swam in the sparkling rivers under blue skies streaked only with incense pouring from the new factories/ The energy from dismantled nuclear weapons provided free heat and light/ World health was restored/ An abundance of organic vegetables, fruits and grains was growing wild along the discarded highways/ National flags were sewn together into brightly colored circus tents under which politicians were allowed to perform harmless theatrical games/ The concept of work was forgotten

Sons Of Pioneers--Mick Karn (1958-2011)

Legend of the fretless bass, Mick Karn. From the first viewing of Life In Tokyo, we were hooked, changing every dynamic possible!
