I'm Not Afraid of The Dark

Odd

*FOR LAURIE ANDERSON AND KEVIN ROSS BALL

GO INCUBATE INDELICATE LANGUAGE
ANO COMMUNICATE
DOOM •••••
…. A BADLY SCRIPTED SCENARIO WHERE
THE ONES YOU LOVE MUST BE SACRIFICED CRUELLY
TO THE INSECT GOD
OF LIES
ABOUT NOTHING WE EVER WANTED
BUT EVERYTHING WE DENIED
THAT WE LOVED EACH OTHER BY
THE STARLIT FIELDS OF A COUNTRYSIDE
THE TALKING HEADS ON TV DECLARE
SO MUCH HEALTHIER WITHOUT THE NIGGERS (YA GOTTA WATCH
THEIR CAREER GIRLS
TODAY, OLD BOYS •••• REAL BITCHES AND GOLD-DIGGERS
BEWARE ••••••) AND THEIR ROTTING, DEFEATED
200 YEAR-OLD DREAMS OF FREEDOM ANO SALVATION
WHICH THEY HAVE OVERCOME •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• NOWHERE
DID I SAY THIS BUT
TO YOU •••••• MY HEART IS NOT
ON MY SLEEVE
WHILE YOU DOUBT
I’VE CHOSEN YOU
TO LOVE
IN SILENCE AND IN PEACE
SO DEEP AND SO COMPLETE THIS
IDEA WITH YOUR SCRUTINY …. “WE ARE NOT TERRESTRIAL BY
DESIGN, WE ARE NOT THE SYMBOLS CF CUR MINOS ••••• “
TO WIT,

GO INCUBATE RADIANT LANGUAGES IN A STEW

STIR IN LIBERAL BALANCE../
MIX WELL ……/
NOW,
OPEN MIND •••• THROW OUT ALL
THOSE OLD IDEAS THAT
STINK/INSERT
F’RESH IDEAS/WITH MIND
STILL OPEN, ……… /NOW •••

TELL AND SPEAK OF NEW IDEAS FROM THIS
WITH OPEN WONDER ••••••••/

BOLDLY SPEAK THEIR COLOURS
CLEARLY INTO BEING/GLOWING THROUGH YOU
EVERY INSTANT,
EVERY HOUR,
(AND WATER WITH YOUR OVERFLOWING HEART)

TASTE THE CANDIED FLAVORS
OF THE MULTI RAINBOW F’LOWERS
(THE PAINTBRUSH OF OUR UNIVERSAL LOVE
IS ART)

DANCE AND SKIP AND FLY
AND LEAP AND FLIP WITH ANGELS’ LAUGHTER
(TO ANY ODD HEAVEN)

WINGS ARE DREAMS OF
LOVE WHICH
F’LY TO HIGHEST HEIGHTS OF PUREST
KINDEST HEAVEN
NOW-AND-EVER-AFTER …….
(AND LEAVES THOSE MINDLESS, CHILDISH PAINS BEHIND)

GO INCUBATE DELICATE LANGUAGES
OF LOVE
AND SCREAM
GODDESS POWER
