Flying Theme Week Continues!

I Believe (7/3/08′)

Explode the blue lotus all over my head,
drown me in golden waves of peace
let me ride the silky back of a smooth dragon
let me drink buttercup juice from the mouth of faeries
let Lung claws dig into my back
let Guan Yin embrace me with her white robe hanging open
let the medicine Buddha laugh at me till I cry
let the thirty millionth planet from the left of the Milkyway galaxy see me naked
may I ride on the backs of a trillion buzzing dragonflies
may I whiz nipples baring through the clouds on a giant Lotus flower
may I breath with rainbow fish and octopuses
may I wake up to the sound of deep guttural growls
may you discover the ancient fibers of my skin
I am part of anti-matter
I believe.
