OKSANA

I. The Bramble
I see the light
I Am the light
wandering thru a dream to rise
our design ever changing tides
of illusory time
make it all mine
I feel the worlds in a different place
I pull out the rug
shake the dust
a used up universe
my trampled universe
on the winters eve
you planted your first tree
the night of the winter games
you planted one more tree
all that is and wild
Nature on her ring
you planted no more trees
the freezing wind
a tornado of ice
you spiral towards unhinged

II. The Clearing
The abandoned shrine
your made up mind
born of two worlds unsaid
have you been no one
I give life to every sound
fractured one in one
I make the world I wanted
prepared to believe it all came true
I took the day off
for the rest of my life
forever a tidal sheet of sleet
the enchanted avalanche
stop pretending that you’re never here
don’t deny another breath my dear
on her ring all is wild
our design is our design is
guzzle up the potion that controls the soul
take me to the center of the knowing void
one less drink one more bar
our design is

III. The Factory
From fantasy to factory
your possible realities
consciously sensualize
you really think you’re that unique
a badge a flag
your side of street
no flake like your snowflake
encoded with entitlement
arbitrary intelligence
DEVOlving are we not …
a cold flume whispers
collapsing spirits soar
a break to a new life

IV. The Nest
Looking at your life
from the nest as you wished it to be
tonight you’re in
I take the time to see
the snow birds dream walk
right down from 2nd and Lorraine
from fantasy to factory
from factory to fantasy
stoned divine
writing silly love songs part nine
until the crayon split

V. The Scrublands

VI. The Attic

VII. The Rink
Have you ever heard
the morning birds at night
have you ever tossed a coin
in a fountain
wishing for a better life
I was fooling myself
and Mother Nature too
I took that journey
one step ahead of the fool
ruby slippers get her out of here
she’s never there
look in her eyes
I mean she’s never here
( I took a walk out of the garbage dumps and smog
where the street lights- they never turn on )
looking at your life
a turn from the stage of your darkness
keep swimming
come on catch your wave
don’t shed a tear
for the cowardly heartless brainless
people that you meet
as you ease on down that road
to a dead ended street
I see the light I AM the light
