Alice on the walls.


fusty bedroom filled with trash
paint on the floor 
and 
jars filled with ash
Bowie on repeat and Alice on the walls
remembering days 
as our good times rolled

late morning sleep ins
the house is empty
gate crashing losers
getting it on plenty
Bowie on repeat and Alice on the walls
feeling the world at our feet
as rainbows soared

out in the night
past the owls and the horse
stumbling through hay barns
as the music roared 
Bowie on repeat and Alice on the walls
pitch black fumbling
ripped lace then nothing at all.

KD  8/6/14

My father wouldn't let us have a record player but we did have a reel to reel deck.....happy memories.

  1. I love your opening with the word, "fusty." Great progression with your one line refrain. I can imagine this one set to music. Kudos!
