Silent shadows slip unseen
one for one
in lost, forgotten cold-sweat dreams
A misbegotten Love Supreme . . .
Brother—are you really there?
Or is it only hate that waits just east of fate
and fratricidal warfare?
Out of the shadows
and out of the night
Now run . . .
into the light and the bright
and the damn near white
OH! What did I do
to be so black and blue?
Outrun the shadows
outrun the night
Run, boy, run . . .
from get-back-black to broad daylight
hiding . . . in plain sight
What was my crime and
what did I do—to be so black and blue?
blue . . . blue . . . as a Blue Moon tune; a Trane refrain
Forgotten man—time to get in the game
Out of tune and off the beat but
cool . . . no rules
Where all the squares play musical chairs
So grab a seat and don’t be scared
Nobody’s ever really there . . . only shadows
Silent shadows—quick, unseen
air a shared unholy scream
One brother gone—a shadow fades
Let us pray . . .
Day is done, gone the sun . . .
Time has run, shadows come . . .
to leave their footsteps on your grave
One for one and son for son
Light eats dark, but dark in Autumn
drinks the light—
So what remains and WHO remains
when bright is pushed aside by night?
. . . That’s right. . . .
