Dark City

I walk
the city at night
I know the walls
remain hollow
I’m a prisoner
a rat in a glass cage,
they conquer
I dreamt
I broke free
of this maze
walked out
into the night
and I stayed
And for the first time
I felt the grace
of the falling

I’m waiting
for my evening bus
To take me
for a few
with you
through time and space
Awake! Awake!
To the distant valleys of my dreams
Until my eyes
open to the morning
and I
to sleep.

Your eyes
cast a shadow
over your soul
as you write your checks
and you post your stamps
Put it all down now
and break through the wall
and you and me
we shall breathe in
the promised land
on which we stand
close your eyes,
and take my hand.

AN old recording from long ago…
