an 80s poem for my brother

Once in a Lifetime

By Shalay for Russ

Hey you

are we comfortably numb

mumbling along to the practical song?

are you Tom Sawyer?

or a brick in the wall?

Am I a spirit in the material world,

Or a material girl?

We were moving in stereo

Then they blinded me with science,

and I ran

one of our submarines is missing.

bring it closer to the heart

We really should have seen through the


You might think I am crazy


We’re not on a road to nowhere.

Take me to the river,

Water’s flowing underground

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Switch off the mind and let the heart decide
