Candy's Poem

(From the movie Candy)


Once upon a time, there was Candy and Dan
Things were very hot that year
All the wax was melting in the trees
He would climb balconies, climb everywhere, do anything for her, oh Danny boy
Thousands of birds, the tiniest birds, adorned her hair
Everything was gold
One night the bed caught fire
He was handsome and a very good criminal
We lived on sunlight and chocolate bars
It was the afternoon of extravagant delight
Danny the daredevil
Candy went missing
The days last rays of sunshine cruise like sharks
I want to try it your way this time
You came into my life really fast and I liked it
We squelched in the mud of our joy
I was wet-thighed with surrender
Then there was a gap in things and the whole earth tilted
This is the business
This, is what we're after
With you inside me comes the hatch of death
And perhaps I'll simply never sleep again
The monster in the pool
We are a proper family now with cats and chickens and runner beans
Everywhere I looked
And sometimes I hate you
Friday -- I didn't mean that, mother of the blueness
Angel of the storm
Remember me in my opaqueness
You pointed at the sky, that one called Sirius or dog star, but on here on earth
Fly away sun
Ha ha fucking ha you are so funny Dan
A vase of flowers by the bed
My bare blue knees at dawn
These ruffled sheets and you are gone and I am going too
I broke your head on the back of the bed but the baby he died in the morning
I gave him a name
His name was thomas
Poor little god
His heart pounds like a voodoo drum
