Frank and Joan
Frank and Joan were best of friends They swore they'd stand together til the End of time, but one day Frank was dreaming He'd glimpsed the gleaming city lights Candescent steaming summer nights His tines tapped the pear Turquoise dissolved in the air A muse named Marguerite, so sweet A treat felt he to neck her 'neath the Street lights, by the Moonrise cardboard cafe Who'm i to say what's right or wrong But memories faded, Joan was gone Luscious lemon locks eclipsed sunlight Churned it to chalk But how was he to know Which way the wind would blow? His fortunes flowed as waves swell on the sea Uncertainty, a river, flooded he Would freedom's ripples tear his heart, or agree? 'Twas but eleven months ago that Joan lit Frank aglow outside the hoedown Caramel brown sand in her hair Though both aware of fated flights They didn't care, embraced the night And when their time expired, it could not quell their desire But how was he to know Which way the wind would blow? His fortunes flowed as waves swell on the sea Uncertainty, a river, flooded he Would freedom's ripples tear his heart? could he Flee to the sound in north Alaska? Salmon silence, there he'd ask her Through the mist of mists Does love exist (?) amidst the dreams that so persist? And conceiving streams of earned sorrow Springing through his heart, Frank hoped Tomorrow turquoise sun would light the station And bring salvation from his sin As revelations rose deep down within Franklin's bent glass The prophet's vision would pass
