STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL THINGS

Look around, all you see are constellations,
Patterns of abuse and patterns of migration
Following the stars, trying to hide their scars,
It’s either magic or it’s not, don’t matter,
The miracle still shines in every splatter and in stroke
Of tragedy or joke,
Strange and beautiful things have come over me –

It’s not a blessing, or a beating,
It’s not confessing or believing,
It’s a “Here I am,” and “There it is”

Look around all you see is inspiration,
Good people and good vibrations coming to your door,
Well, who could ask for more?
And every day’s another combination
Of human being, butterfly, a molecule, a whole damn nation,
Whatever you can see –
Strange and beautiful things have come over me.
