Is this magic carpet big enough for two? You and I, chameleon Ghosts of faithful wounds haunt under the sun Kisses of an enemy linger above stars Thief/drunk/liar/shameless/coward Their words cross my heart and cross your fingers Tired of defending you, I retreat In the face of truth, you told lies The deed is done but the memory lingers
Is Richard Dawkins going to save you now? Holiness is overrated but a god is a god Ignore me at your own risk I am singularly unignorable (Put that in your dictionary) Six million friends couldn’t save you Even if they wanted to Nurse the poison as affection Until it masters your resistance
Were you always so wicked? A canvas cracks its gorgeous mask The spy behind with hideous eyes appears Repulsion knows no boundaries Swimming in oil kills you Whispering tales trumps silence Take a whiff of the hookah, Jasmine Did I make her bow? Off fires the first rocket!
