Wastin’ Time

voodoo_028

Birds in the swamp

Call to monkeys

In the zoo picking shit

For the audience

 

And watching you

Nothing else to do

No bones to rattle

No straw bodies to burn

 

So they roll and rock

In their glass houses

Dream Voodou dancing

Fire and dirt needs

 

No cross of redemption

No starched hair shirt

No clocks or lists

Exist sittin’ here

 

At the crossroads

Of whistle and moan

Wastin’ time bayin’ at

The moon lickin’ bones

 

Otis and Sam tongue

Maia and Mae lounging

Longing not waiting

On clay ships or sin

 

Making moments music

Under your skin warm

Morning sun pierces

The canopy blue finds

 

Your buggin’ wings

Bottled and lost again

Horny idler naked white

As a Hoodoo ape-man
