By GENIE NAKANO
the train lost speed and just plain stopped no brakes needed natural as the green grass on the other side of the fence
the cow jumped over a cheesy moon spilled milk everywhere lunatics started dodging silver bullets
deep in the forest things settle into a snooze while cities blare a new kind of music you’ve got to hear it…
no, I can’t explain nor dance it either you just have to be here feel the new formed rhythm with a universal beat
can’t stream or dream it has to be in real time right now, right now step right up… and let a new world sing
clickity clack the train picks up the beat just like that the train is back on track
