  • Before I journeyed
    To live on the sun
    And learned to broadcast light
    Like a billion fireflies
    From every cell
    Of my celestial body

    I dreamed I was the sun
    Or something like it
    Wheeling dizzy and stepwise
    Powered by vertigo
    Through a blood twilight
    High above the Grand Canyon
