~ A Backdrop For The Impossible, Pt. II ~

“… Jesus Christ, that was insane, mate,
we all heard/felt this whistling noise
‘Kooouuueeee’, ya know,
like an old school Bomb dropping
… and we all spun-around,
like WTF, and it was just your Energy
as you turned the corner… grinning.
That was some Reading you gave
last weekend, scared Jeremy shitless
when you channeled a Deacon
and provoked the scent of sulphur.
And, Tammy’s obsessed with you
after you did the ‘Daydream Poem’
and wriggled your tattooed fingers
… she said that she could feel them
‘tickling’ inside her pent-up Emotions.
Oh, and before I completely forget
… is it an ‘Edge’ or ‘Ledge’ Ritual
used for sealing up parts of Yesterday?”

• Author’s Note:  To date, the ‘Daydream Poem’ has never been written down or recorded, only spoken from memory on extremely rare and spontaneous occasions.
