“Caucasian Firefly” (poem)


“Caucasian firefly

Flying around a white world

Drugs and drugs and drugs and -

  Carrying sentiments

Sometimes no one wants to think of

Wants to fly past the lights

  Under the dark blue sky

Hot air

  Gold stare

  Gold stares-

Staring back.

  At firefly

Wants free in the air

  Nature’s faire

A firefly

Whisk on by

North to South

Wonder why-

  She feels uprooted-


Moon and stars and all manner of cars

Trucks and radios-

And gas stations fares-

  Wondering-

Waiting- for her man to come-

Me, a firefly

Not so faire-

But beautiful-

  in my own way-

I wait and stare-

             through my glass-

Trapped at home

Under a glass sky-

Under a starry glass sky-

Wondering why-?

  Longing to fly-

Longing to fly-

  Waiting for my man-

black & white-

rainbow firefly.

    Caucasian fairy-

Wants a home.

   Caucasian fairy-

  Wants to roam-

  Fly away-

  Fly far off-

  Find a good man & good place to stay..

                  Texas nights

Driving-

under the dark, glass sky-

  so high,-

  So high.


Miss you baby.

Miss you my good man.

Caucasian fairy-

  Oh so sad-

Waisting away-

Missing her man…

Glassy noel

  Fields a blue-

In the sky overhead.

  Missing my man..

  Missing my man..

  Missing my man…

White billowy world

Accept a girl?

  A little boy-girl

  A little androgyne-

Sprite in white

  and red

little nymph in black.

Walking my way back-

Walking my way back..

to my man..

to my man..

one day, one day-

  we’ll be together

In this world again…”

“I love you, baby.  my blue-eyed man..

My missouri man..

My missouri man..

when you come home?.”

Love,

Kelly

“It’s been so long” lyrics

“It’s been so long since we’ve been together It’s been so long, it breaks my heart. It’s been so long since we’ve been together I feel like I’ve been falling apart. Oh, when will you come back to me?
