Wrathful mama,

I want to make love to you

In a small cafe

Till the sun heads up

To infinity.


And diamonds

In the night,

Don’t let me down.

Don’t let me down,

Clever mind.


Be my diva

In times of trouble.


(Is this machine recording?)


Remember me to my love,

Extra strength karma.

You always lived nowhere else, but

Existence Street


(And I always lived there too)


With my horse

Painted green

Inside the little gift

Of what’s new.


The ancestors,

The magic ancestors,

Floating through

The windows

And doors, saying,

“Life is beautiful.”
