Let the stars come out, and the moon shine bright
we’re sleeping on the porch tonight
wind blew all the power lines down
watch where you step if you go walking around

this may be the night
our bodies fill with light
and we may hover above
the surface of
our warm, lonely planet

Let cooling rains come, let them fall
let the grass grow strong and tall
let the dandelions breed
give me what you know I need

this may be the night
our bodies fill with light
and we may hover above
the surface of
our warm, lonely planet

    General CommentWhen the powerlines go down and we move our beds outside, when the wind is warm and full of promise and the wealth of summer absolutely fills your lungs up, don't worry about the sparks from the electrified wires. The world keeps turning and time keeps running and we aren't even corporeal anyway, nothing can touch us. Our souls are going to escape and it could happen tonight.

    I love the use of 'hover,' and calling the planet warm but lonely. It makes it seem safe and close and secluded and bright instead of dead, with all out shining selves are around it.
