"Flare Flakes a Flower...

A burnt-out shower
No one can see
You were needing
Too shy for asking
So I will leave it
Outside your door
Pulse stalls
Uncut but clotted
When you had thought it
Would force a flow
Some lights were shining
Not much for seeing
But you believe in
The way you came"



A line from an old Fugazi song...

The "Some lights shining" reminded me of this song by Ray Wylie-

This morning I was born again and a light shines on my land.
I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distant land.
I don't want your pearly gates, don't want your streets of gold.
This mornin' I was born again and a light shines in my soul.

This mornin' I was born again, I was born again complete.
I stood up above my troubles and I stand upon my two feet.
My hand it feels unlimited, my body feels like the sky.
I feel at home in the universe where yonder planets fly.

This morning I was born again, my past is dead and gone.
This great eternal moment is my great eternal dawn.
Each drop of blood within me, each breath of life I breathe,
Is united with these mountains and the mountains with the seas.

I feel the sun upon me, its rays crawl through my skin.
I breathe the life of Jesus and old John Henry in.
I give myself, my heart, my soul to give some friend a hand.
This mornin' I was born again, I am in the Promised Land.

This mornin' I was born again and the light shines on my land.
I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distant land.
I do not want your pearly gates, don't want your streets of gold.
And I don't want your mansion for my heart is never cold.
