She looked at the moon and said
Oh dear moon bring me
Peace
bring me
Love
bring me
Something to believe in

the Moon replied to her
(in a series of insipid daydreams)
I will do that
And give you more
More than you ever dreamed of
Cramped and crammed into sugar filled brown bottles that are hand blown
Made from sand
Sand from the land where your true love is
he will be your soul mate
He will be your everything
I promise this to you
I promise this to you

The girl ran about hiding under umbrellas
Wearing long sleeved button up white men's shirts in the rain
Naked under them
Her nipples poking at the cloth
And yet he was still not there

Oh mother sun mother sun oh mother sun
Please give me my love!

The sun replied (most dignified)
Your love is there I promise you
I promise you I promise you
Your love is there I promise you
If only you use your heart

She used her heart
Oh she used her heart
She used her heart so hard
That her heart fell out and grew a tree and from that tree a flower fell
The flower fell oh the flower fell
The flower fell on the ground
And from the flower rolled a stone
A stone a stone a stone
And from her heart that grew a tree from which a flower fell
A stone did roll and a stone did roll and

Grew
A
Man so tall!

The man did exclaim (upon seeing his bare hands
Sinuous and gentle, full of veins and bones)
From who dost I come from?!
And he ran around in raindrops
And he ran around in sun
And he ran around in night and day
Searching for his true love

He searched for her under pillows
He searched under rocks
Under his finger nails
Always searching for his one true love

After many days and many dreams and many sorrows
The man said to the sky
Oh mother sun oh father moon oh brother stars
Show me where I did come from!

The sun said naught
The moon said naught
The sun and moon said naught
The stars twinkled helplessly and pointed to a tree

A tree said he a tree said he a tree said he said he
I come from a tree a tree a tree?
I come from a tree from a flower from a tree from which a stone did roll?

The moon sighed the sun sighed the stars sighed and one of them even died
Yes said the moon, the sun and the stars
You came from the tree from which a maiden's heart did fall and nourish the earth with her dreams
You came from her you came from her oh you came from her
But now she's dead

The man said naught, he said naught naught naught
And cried a lot instead
He who came from a heart from a maiden
He cried a lot instead

He grabbed his spade and dug
He poked at the earth he poked at the rocks he poked at the hard hard earth and the rocks and the stars shown down at him with pity in their bright eyes
He slowly unearthed his treasure
A heart gleaming through the dirt
The heart of his one true love
That died to give him life, that died to give him life, that died to gain her one true love

That died to gain her one true love
Whom she could
never
even
touch.
