Get Well Soon

Written By: Kathy Sparling

Your rabbit’s foot was powder blue, but maybe that was mine
Who possessed which good luck charm, which talisman to ward off time?
Now you seem sure each cell reflects not luck, but love
Though some, like lambs, have gone astray
Good shepherds watching from above pray:

Get well soon, oh get well soon

At training camp for sleeper cells identities collapse
United in our misery from Reveille and straight through Taps
Now you’ll forgive my terror if we disagree
We’ve been activated on different sides of the infirmary.

Oh get well soon, please get well soon
I’ll keep you covered as you are
I won’t undress your battle scar
If you’ll get well soon.

In this waking nightmare my suspicions are confirmed:
You, in fact, are too good for this world.
I might strike a simple bargain in the name I’ve often cursed
It’s the details in this deal with the devil again…
Don’t leave us nurse — oh nurse — before we get well soon

Oh get well soon
I won’t discover who you are
You let me wear your battle scar
And just get well soon.

The Moon is Coming With Us

Written By: Kathy Sparling

Get your bags, the sun has set, the moon is on the rise
We’re traveling by night this time, we can’t yet close our eyes
Space is small but, after all, there’s only you and I
And framed within your window, in the vast familiar sky, you’ll see:

The moon is coming with us, her orbit locked with ours
Our wheels turn with the planets, high beams shine with the stars
As tides recede before us, we’re bathed in silver light
The moon is coming with us, out on the road tonight.

Better still, forget the bags, we’ll leave it all behind
We’ve lived through every phase by now, and I won’t change my mind
This hasn’t been the kind of place that asks “remember when?”
Those towns and cities speeding past, we’ll never see again

But the moon is coming with us, her orbit locked with ours
Our wheels turn with the planets, high beams shine with the stars
As tides recede before us, we’re bathed in silver light
The moon is coming with us, out on the road tonight.

It’s lunacy to run like this, or maybe it’s a dream
We’ll wake to streaming sunlight, one another set agleam
In such illumination we’ll see every gift bestowed
There really is no dark side, just the cycle, just the road

And the moon that’s coming with us, her orbit locked with ours
Our wheels turn with the planets, high beams shine with the stars
As tides recede before us, we’re bathed in silver light
The moon is coming with us, out on the road tonight.

Oh the moon is coming with us...no we’re not alone tonight.
