Cracked Planet

for Menubar Memorial the artist

In Circuit City below a cracked blue sky,
all the Kings and fiery stampede of horses
cannot re -assemble this mess.
beep* ting ting*  tock tock*
Countdown.
Remember when you were a kid
and you had those weird dreams?
boop* boop* boop*
like water dripping in your sink?
The planets were coming down too close
and leaving their orbits behind.
tick* boop* ping ting*
and you knew that was not right?
Then the whole entire sky opened?
ahhh* gaaaah* oooh*
Countdown. Start to count…down.

If you got a way to get off… get off!
wow* ohhh* yes* god*
B’cause this dying spinning sphere,
Is cracking up and coming to a stop.
So..if you got a way to get off,
jump on it and go!
This orb will be a forgotten rented space,
in outer space.
Who will be left to remember?
ones and zeros…ones and zeros… ones and zeros.
boop* boop* boop* boop*

The experiment is shelved.
It is all over.
It is all done.
ahh* nooo* boop* oh well….*
One conclusion drawn…
If you leave it to the humans,
they will crack their egg
tsssh*tssshhh* tssshhhh*
and cook themselves into the omelette.

All of the love moans
wow* ohh* yes* god*,
of all the words, “Turn right here”  “Do not cross the line” “Now you have done it” “Last Call” “Right at First Light” “Truth in your dog’s eyes” “Humanity”, “Insanity” “Inhumanity” “Sanity”
All the words will go.
The Game starts to get picked up,
sucked up into the broken sky.
Is it over? Did we lose? Is it over?

In The Circuit City below a cracked blue sky,
all the Kings and fiery stampede of horses
cannot re-assemble this mess.
beep* ting ting*  tock tock*
Countdown.
Remember when you were a kid
and you had those weird dreams?
boop* boop* boop*
like water dripping in your sink?
The planets were coming down too close
and leaving their orbits behind.
tick* boop* ping ting*
and you knew that wasn’t right?
Then the whole entire sky opened?
ahhh* gaaaah* oooh*
Countdown. Start to count…down.

  2. Thank you Menubar..that little image of yours, brought a strange voice out of me. I am so glad that you enjoyed what I saw inside your picture..It sucked me in..and up:)

  3. PS. Somebody asked me if this was really my voice? Yes this is my voice, but my muse made me space walk in thin air without my helmet on:) so…it’s not my fault it came out a bit weird. I just wanted to clarify that…:)
