Solitude Blues


My cage has bars of fire, my heart is a purple

dove.

This cage with bars of fire, heart flies as a bruised

dove does.

Allah, I ain’t got no home. Ain’t

got no nest to be speakin’ of.


I flew to the mountains, god, I soared to the Salish

Sea.

This lavender heart flies the mountains, god, this

solo dove soars the sea.

I may drown in the angry water. I

may die in an old growth tree.


I made this bed, lover, and this is where I will stay.

This is my bed, my love, and this is where I must

stay.
