Catatonia and Lady Liberty
call to me:
“Stay and hide under these covers!
If you pretend that you aren’t here they won’t find you.
You will be safe. Sleep and don’t dream.
Cry in your pillow.” says the Cat.
“Run! Wild and free. Make it hard for them to catch you.
Friends will be here when you return. They will forgive you.
Wind in your face; Dust in your hair; Distant vistas…
Run fast, run hard, let the wind dry your tears.
Maybe all of the Sirens
sing these songs of safety.
Safe places to Be,
