Moon on a stick

February 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

I got on another plane. Pressed up against the oval window, watching the aerial landscape of Australia’s vast emptiness glide by. Day turns to night and the light fades to the dark shades of a cobalt pencil. We land and I am whisked through the night in a black S class Mercedes, cameras at my feet (Apple smart device in hand), windows aglow in skyscraping homes, the nameless eyes of people I don’t know, lights of a city that outshine the stars (the moon on a stick).

Melbourne – Hong Kong | February, 2011

Because all I want is the moon upon a stick
Just to see what it is
Just to see what gives
Take the lotus flowers into my room
Slowly we unfurl
As lotus flowers
All I want is the moon upon a stick
Dance around a pit
The darkness is beneath

~ from “Lotus Flower” by Radiohead

Where I end and you begin

There’s a gap in between
There’s a gap where we meet
Where I end and you begin

4 Minute Warning

This is just a nightmare
But soon I’m going to wake up
Someone’s gonna bring me around

Hiding from the bombers
Wading through the fields
Running in the half light
