Close Your Eyes (Third)

close your eyes
I was there to tell you to open your eye
there is scorching where even children cry
holy fire swallows the canvas you’re filling
these dreams you call hopes and nightmares
as thin as paper are the memories you drew
on napkins maybe when you were one or two
for the rest of numbers are now such gravity
more is less, and more is your ponderous chain

I was there to tell you to open your eye
there is no seeing with two that are blind
even my colors will soon bleed into yours
when we meet upon ether plane you and I
close your eyes and you will see us there
listen to the sound of our heart’s wild stare
seeing the geometric shapes brilliant beaming
in and out of our vision kaleidoscope seeming
lucy in the stars, we’re together in the stars
now close your eyes
