lyrics

you said,
there’s a mermaid in my attic
she came with sailors that were stranded
first afloat and then ashore
do you dare to shut the door?

and she smiles at dusty postcards
sent from places we don’t know
sent from islands gone under water
some thirty years ago

~
and we traded all our secrets
(you told me all, I told you none)

about the ghosts in the machines ---
about the ducklings that can sing ---
before the banks became cathedrals ---
about the penguins in the northern sky ---
~

and I said,
every morning after sunrise
there comes a moon faced vagabond
riding a sickle in bright yellow
into my mind and well beyond

he hides in my sister’s closet
is it the man from the moon?
come on stay for a story
and see our tales bloom
