Lyrics posted with permission of the author

I am the flaw in the tea-bowl
I will not dance death
I will not lie down here in peace
And release my last breath
All of our hopes have been cast on the reefs and are gone
Still my salt blood reaches out for the sky
Still my warm song touches notes clear and high
Outward I go and I know I will fly a new dawn

Starship and Haiku
Dying hate and living love
Reach beyond our sin

Starship and Haiku
One last flawed reminder of
All we might have been

I am a discord in deathsong I cannot be still
I am an infinite paean a permanent trill
I am a leap to the stars I am song to the sky
Always I shun the bleak burial grounds
Always I listen for life's vibrant sounds
Always my hollow-reed heartbeat resounds with its cry


Repeat Verse 1
