Stand on a bridge before the cavern of night Darkness alive with possibility Nose to this wind full of twinkling lights Trying to catch the scent of what's coming to be (in this...)

World of wonders...

Somewhere a saxophone slides through changes Like a wet pipe dripping down my neck Gives me a chill -- sounds like danger But I can't stop moving till I cross this sector (of this...)

World of wonders...

There's a rainbow shining in a bead of spittle Falling diamonds in rattling rain Light flexed on moving muscle I stand here dazzled with my heart in flames (at this...)

World of wonders...

Moment of peace like brief arctic bloom Redgold ripple of the sun going down Line of black hills makes my bed Sky full of love pulled over my head

World of wonders
