carrying your heavy peace
on a crowded bus
eyeballs saying “draw your sword and kill us”

seating like buddha in
your dirty clothes
hippies balance the sun on
the tips of their noses

let it slip away
let it slip away

spending your days in
the shadow of mountains
carving images of your gods
and goddesses with dead men bones

nightfall you stand between the
pillars of the city like samson
in his last delight

let it slip away
let it slip away

lifting the world on your tattooed
shoulders, gathering grapes with your feet

trading your magic
for a cup of wine
back to the thornbush
back to the fire
