Canto II


Alone
Single flame
One heart
Matricide
Detachments
Separations
Familial cord broken
I’m sad of heart
Sister, I no longer can mend
Texas bound, in the lowlands
My roots are deep and tangle in L.A. soil
Impacted of spirit
Prisoner of my past
My cell counts are my prison bars
I no longer view the stars
I wallow in moonlight
And swallow hundreds of pills
My peers and loving support
Are gone and left me here
Hung out to dry
I can only cry and go on
Home-spun now
Keep my cholesterol down
Answer my alarm
Freeway bound
Lost and found
L.A. unified holds me hostage
With learning walks and bullshit accountable talk
Few connections
Recluse and stubborn
Spinster and sudden
Claimed by fate and circumstance
What chance do I have to reach heaven
Failure, no lovers
Decay, the vultures hover
Spill my blood
Sacrifice and despair
I’m losing my idealistic hair
My heart is coming apart
Like a jigsaw puzzle
Release me from this earthly plane
I can no longer mate
I surrender to my fate
Endangered of heart
Extinct of mind
Spiritless
Not impressed
By God

Got lost at the fair
Summer of ‘64
This man found me
And bought me cotton candy and peanuts
Couldn’t eat because I couldn’t stop crying
Dear Moon
It wasn’t his lack of trying
But couldn’t you have sent my daddy
To find me at the fair
My hair is just like his
Why this stranger, so kind and caring
Where is the familiar man?
I’m dying to meet at the fair
I swear
This strange man has made me calm
I’ll only talk to him till
My patriarch comes
