oh say can you see

i can see all the way to where you dream

i write it down

to show you these dreams are true

and to make you feel like you should

because you are as good as i say

better really


everything explodes

and goes somewhere to be put together again

we cycle around and sometimes shoot up

like a roman candle

the joy of innocence

through the lens of wisdom


i can’t believe you are

who you are

and that i get to know you

riding top down in god’s cadillacs

one for each color of the rainbow

the tyranny of small men

shall be left in your jet stream

as you move all the way across the ocean

and the stars

you scrape the exhaust of the atmosphere

and head home to change

and then

do it all over again
