(A reflection on the Paris attacks, dedicated to an old friend & victims of terror worldwide)


Stardust for dessert
Stardust for rebirth
She reaches for that cigarette
She is no longer standing

She reaches for that lightning
Into the night unwinding
She came for so much fun
Before the tempest and the gun

From a crescent moon and a star
And a so-called prayer in the sand
Comes a single fucking moment
She will never understand

Stardust for dessert
I bring you supernova
Born again in a billion years
The music never ends

Stardust for dessert
In a universe of nightlife
Heavens come and heavens go
Heaven knows just when

Stardust for dessert (Where did she come from?)
Stardust for rebirth (Where did she go?)
Stardust for dessert (What was she made of?)
Stardust for rebirth (What has she become?)

We are stardust & will be recycled within the cosmic dance of a fertile, self-creating universe. I'm just channeling Einstein here, who claimed that God ISN'T the gardener, but the garden itself.
But what do I know?
I'm just a terrified a Supernova Karma Sutra.
