The Personal Touch

by The M's and TV Pow



The Conductor Taps the Music Stand + the Fog Rolls In, Halfway There, First Frost.
The Ghosts of Futures Past (The Moon Stirs the Primordial Soup)
Set + Setting (The Work to be done is simple)
Make the Bed (Feed the Turtle).
Maybe we shouldn't be doing this, and over the gravity-fall.
All we need, waiting for the kick, the air rushing out of the room.
the wrong date. the wrong address.
eyelids flicker. eyes sparkle, eye-lights.
The Sun's Investments stirring in sleep.
Practical Jokes.
Quantized telekinetic rainbows.
Before the first kiss prophets speak.
Stolen breath, synchronized refrigerators.
Entanglement . Cannot predict the horn, the final impulse.
The days are just getting shorter and colder, is all.
Phoning in a song on the summer radio the crashing satellites.
The trauma of awakening.
The procession trudges, the streets are flooded.
Something that everyone can live with.
Unfolding more than human.
