Love Is The Director

sometime you give up and float down to the bottom
where the leaves pile up with empty cans and bottles
just another rock and roll escapee box turtle
growing stronger in the dark and waiting for a little spark

sometimes you let go and float out to the jetty
watch the surfers stand and drop, face down in the foamies
rumors of an impressive shark precede the evening then the dark
on the beach there is a fire, shooting sparks and never tires

it's an action film
and love's the director

sometimes you bow down, sagging like a poppy pod
shone too long in the dark and no one even saw it
singing for your mother and your father and your shitzu
a song about the ancient Turk and exactly what is human worth

We came and we saw
got turned into slaw
and now our net mirth
is God's living earth

it's an action film
and love's the director
