Look at the feet of iron and clay

Another sentence is handed out
To the corner unit in the hotel lobby
A gorilla in a policeman’s uniform
Stabs it though with a spike

Another sentence is handed out
To the corner unit in the hotel lobby
It wees all over the Axminster carpet
And faints like a wheel in a carnival

Can you take my sleep away
And give me radar eyes
And legs as strong as steel
And let me walk alone

Look at the feet of iron and clay
Walking up and down the city
The sky is a buzzsaw of lightning wheels
But you still look pretty

Another sentence is handed out
To the corner sofa in the hotel lobby
The janitor hacks at it with a claw hammer
Now it is a reclining art body

Can you take away my sleep away?
And demolish the chimneys that float in the clouds
Can you measure my strength with a set square?
And roll me up in cat fur

Look at the feet of iron and clay
What are they doing today?
They are painting the walls a sunset grey
As they cover our faces in aerosol spray

Another sentence is handed out
At the corner unit in the hotel lobby
A cat on a tricycle is riding by
And shelters it under an umbrella of fire

A gangway of planks is made on the floor
It leaves like a snail to the lobby door
A comedian puts flowers across the seat
And it’s taken away by the giant with feet of iron and clay

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
