Magicians do not exist

And you? Do you believe in magic? I know I'm not a child anymore, but I always remember my lost innocence. And you?

The Poet is like the prince of the clouds,
Haunting the tempest
and laughing at the archer;
Exiled on earth amongst the shouting people,
His giant's wings hinder him from walking.

From the dusty May sun

Her looming shadow grows

Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote

She twines her spines up slowly

Towards the boiling sun

And when i touched her skin

My fingers ran with blood

In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon

I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom

And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced

I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands

When the last light warms the rocks

And the rattlesnakes unfold

Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

And rise with me forever

Across the silent sand

And the stars will be your eyes

And the wind will be my hands
