Here comes that gasoline
spreading hungry rainbow over shiny black tar.
I'm blown like smoke and blind
except for when your love breaks in.
to those who love is given sight
to pierce the wall of seeming night
and know it pure beyond all imagining.
Engine throb street cruise
light bullet car flash
hollow beauty night gleam oily river tension glass...
Ultraflame! glittering dust
falling in slow
motion -- clouds tumbling one over another into apparent emptiness.
It's like a big fist breaking
down my door --
I never felt such a love before!
to those who love it's given to hear
music too high for the human ear
and clear as hydrogen to go singing.
