Last night I dreamed  I was a comedian… Thursday , October 30, 2014 / Cologne, Germany #SchwervonPoetry

The corpse of CBGB’s 
Will never rest in peace. 
How long until the final morsel 
Is picked from her bones? 

Last night I dreamed 
I was a comedian 
Luckily I woke 
before I had to to say anything 
Funny

If the hole in the curtain 
Is where you see things 
Then through the hole in the curtain 
Is how you will be seen
 
In Germany the beer is free
But you gotta pay to pee

When we wake on top of the Mountian
Life is about learning to fall

We see things electronically 
It was always this way
Electric fire
Electric stars
Electric warriors
Electric bees

We sting with love
And our sparking silver tipped tails

Someone tore the wings from
My back 
And replaced them with guitars

We mask the pain
With amplification 
Bzzzzzzzz bzzzzzzzz

We suck the music from 
Flowers 

We infuse it 
We use it 

We never lose it

(This poem was originally recited on October 30, 2014 at Tsunami in Cologne, Germany)
