The Orange Genie

In my head of course

I’ve always been

Master of the

One-legged,

Turn-around,

Tumble-down

Snake and shake shuffle

Between platform five

And the fantasy gun

I aim at the midnight sun.

In my head, of course

I dance (oh so well)

Alongside those that rose

And those that pose

With chameleon scarves

And too many faces

While the rains from

Distant seas tumble

Into my dream-hero bed.

But now, right now,

All I’m wond’rin’ is

What the orange genie

In the arcade bottle’s

Gonna do

When there’s nobody

Left at this party

But me an’ you.
