‘Maple Syrup Festival Queen’

You and your victory dance,
Back-from-the-war crazy.
You are a movie star,
Safe in your rituals,
Luminous, forgiven.

And you and I are nothing, but,
Bits of ash and bone.
Nothing left to send home,
Desire and innocence, gone.

A shadow around the eyes,
We glide across the dance floor.
A voice not heard, unwitnessed crimes,
No body recovered…

Out beyond the light,
She holds her breath,
So you won’t feel the warmth,
That surrounds death.
Oh, warmth,
Oh, death.

A shadow around the eyes,
We glide across the dance floor.
A voice not heard, unwitnessed crimes,
No body recovered…

about

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
