Breaking Through Derderderder.......... Dardardardar.......... Not breaking up, Not breaking down, Not breaking out But breaking through. Not breaking away, Not breaking back, Not breaking in But breaking through. Not breaking a sweat, Not breaking a vow, Not breaking a heart But breaking through. Not breaking the surface, Not breaking a circuit, Not breaking into a run But breaking through. Break! Break! Break! Not breaking up, Not breaking down, Not breaking in But breaking through. Not breaking away, Not breaking back, Not breaking out But breaking through. Not breaking a heart, Not breaking a vow, Not breaking a sweat But breaking through. Not breaking the surface, Not breaking a circuit, Not breaking into a run But breaking through. Break! Break! Break! Through- Through-

You Could So Easily You could so easily educate me. You’re so different in your attitude. It’s not just the way you stand. It’s the way you make me feel Like a bullish man In a lighting shop, So close to enlightenment Whenever you are near. You could take me in your arms And stop me dreaming. I would suddenly be wise For being true To my feeling.

The Crackle Of Decision The crackle of decision, The smell of burnt wire, Spicy melting plastic, Thin glass breaking, It’s not on and off. It’s not a switch. It’s not a hesitation. It’s not a huge field of no With one rock of yes To crack a ploughshare on. It’s not a seesaw. It’s an ocean of yes With an iceberg of no To wreck my ship on. It’s an ocean of yes With an iceberg of no To wreck my ship on. Sometimes you arrive Straight in the middle Of someone else’s dream And it’s a case of hold your breath And it’s a case of hold your breath In the unlikely event The dream is good, Good for you. So far as i know Far as I know so As I know so far I know so far as Know so far as I So far as I know. Holy fool Fly in a web You girl amongst drunken stupid men You bee in a flower

Noun There’s not a lot in a word Some bacteria, moisture And carbon dioxide. The same carbon dioxide That puts the world to sleep. A noun, a noun, a noun Is torn off in a thought storm And it doesn’t matter How many adjectives you add, The weightless shred Will never be more than noise Flapping in the space Between a mouth and an ear. I would have to speak As I breathed in, if I was to name you And anyway it would still be a lie Like looking into your grey grape eyes Across a laden table And claiming that a word from you Is all I need to survive. There’s not a lot in a word Some bacteria, moisture And carbon dioxide. The same carbon dioxide That puts the world to sleep.

SPIT WINE Ladies and Gentleman, Women and Men, Girls and Boys, Conscientious objectors, Semi-conscious agreers, Any sentient being from any intersection of dimensions that might be present. Here we are, crushing grapes in the mouth making spit wine. Here we are, Refusing to be economical. Here we are, Extravagant With our truths, On the South Side Where the tarmac And the dust Make for excellent growing. Here we are Crushing grapes in the mouth Storytelling picking from a wave front of facts towering above the rip tide towering to the point where the facts are about to break Where it’s all about to break, like a sky full of rain, like a sky full of rain. Here we are, crushing grapes in the mouth making spit Wine. Spit wine. Spit wine.

LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEM Human Being! Human Being! How is your life support system? Is it the trees losing their leaves or is it your lungs losing their alveoli? Is it acid flux or is it acid rain? Have you got a temperature or is it the planet? Have you got a skin disease or is it poisoned topsoil? Life Support Systems, LEDs, Notices and signs, Burglar alarms, Signals everywhere But no meaning, No being, No waggle dance to tell you where is the nectar. Where is the nectar? Life support system. Life support system.
