lady la la liberty

Supermoon, New York, Julio Cortez via Magpie Tales

I look at that moon
like it's another quarter
slipped in 
the smiling notch of 
my bank book

i can hardly lift 
all that hope
i make gravy wells
in clouds
for all my crazy dreams

but my champagne heart
has beggar's 
and i stubbed my toe 
on a horny back toad

how them golden slippers
ever gonna fit me, now 
go an' howl down a
mongrel rainstorm up
that yellow brick road

There was a haunting beauty behind her eyes, beyond her sorrow, a beauty that found its way into one’s heart and led them home.

I am
the final victor
your ash
in the skin
of my boots
