"I Wish I was the Moon Tonight"

Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands and bloodless veins
As numb as I've become

I'm so tired
I wish I was the moon tonight

Last night I dreamt I had forgotten my name
'Cause I had sold my soul but awoke just the same
I'm so lonely
I wish I was the moon tonight

God blessed me, I'm a free man
With no place free to go
I'm paralyzed and collared-tight
No pills for what I fear

This is crazy
I wish I was the moon tonight

Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands & bloodless veins
As numb as I've become

I'm so tired,
I wish I was the moon tonight

How will you know if you found me at least
'Cause I'll be the one, be the one, be the one
With my heart in my lap
I'm so tired, I'm so tired
I wish I was the moon tonight

I wrote this in prison:
Halloween Animist

Every night
When walking back from chow
I have a conversation with the moon
Hello my friend
You’re a jester
A changeling
By eighths
Sly and subtle
No brash and brassy Sun, you
Daily proclaiming
Her record-breaking reign
As Queen of Life Eternal.
I so prefer
The Prince of Things Nocturnal
Brother Moon
Welcome guest at evening constitutionals
The perfect after-dinner speaker
To the point, never rude
Always thought-provoking
Your anecdotes
Antidotes
To thoughts confined or confused
To boot, a seasoned traveler
At home in every sky
But don’t blink
You’ll miss his wink
There’ll be no rocket
In your pocket
Goodnight, moon
And thanks.

You know, my moon and your moon are the same moon.
