Counter Clock Wise

I know a girl from inner space
She walks a path against the camber
And lightning raced across her face
Illuminating eyes of amber

I drew her face in cutout shapes
And radio waves delayed, unreal
Loops and reels from demo tapes
Define the way I feel

About the girl from inner space
Whose smile could melt my heart
And dignify the human race
Without recourse to art

I love her now – I loved her when
I dreamt her face in colour
The moon in wax to guide my pen
My heart my head my lover
