Pacifying the Serpent Stars
To pacify the serpent stars
they send out radio waves
they bounce off me, harmless, I send them on their way.
They watch me with long eyes from a terra oasis
late at night where the city lights won't dull their view
in the distance howls the wolf, she who knows...
I linger outside the milky way,
drawing in the rays from the morning bleeding of a rising sun
starfire from my finger tips
I spread out and touch all those who seek
the serpent in the stars.
I become the serpent, changing my skin.
shedding old notions
erupting into a new millennium I whirl my spiral dance
coiling in and out and constricting in space
expanding when they least expect it, I am .
the white diamond, who cuts through the lies,
I am the serpent in the tree
I offer the knowledge left dangling in front of me
and I am not afraid of being removed
for I am a serpent star, intermingling with dreams
I sought the milk from the milky way and like my cousin dragon
I was lulled into sleep
but now after millennia, I have awoken.
Heralding the day when all that we reach for
shall not be forbidden.
