Weeping like the ghost of winter, we watch our tears
kiss ash and turn to steam. We walk on hot coals
where a stream meandered. Tarred and tanned. We
flex and count the tumours on our hands--spreading
swiftly now. For this, we waited just a lifetime.
Sun blessed mirror shaded mad dogs. Blow a kiss we'll
all fall over. Hunting the oasis but there's only cola-
sensurround. A technicolour thrill . . . it costs a fortune,
so it must be real. For just a little sip, we'll
keep waiting (just a lifetime.)
And some of us work underground. We dug a hole and
settled down. We waited for the gentle sound of steady
rain to soak the ground and raattle on our ventilator.
Guess the time we sat there waiting. Yes, you
guessed! We waited just a lifetime.
