Baby Carni Bird

The highway was barred off
When he overturned me
One night, somewhere north of Nice
 
Dazzled by the headlights
I caught his gaze
And plunged headlong
 
Swallow your breath
Your girlish pride
 
I picked myself up and gave him
My good hand
 
But I could not remember
My maiden name
And so I invented,
 
“My name is Baby Carni Bird
I’m the only one in the world
I’m yours
For I can fly up in the air
And you can shoot me when you like
I’m yours”
 
The sky is a peak
Where stars expire
And there together we drove
 
Through the windshield
I saw the snow melting
From the highest mounts
 
His lips were wet
His teeth were files
His eyes were pitfalls
 
And his fiery tales
of fays and runaways
Haunted my restless sleep
“My name is Baby Carni Bird
I’m the only one in the world
I’m yours
For I can fly up in the air
And you can shoot me when you like
I’m yours”
 
The highway was barred off
When they found me
In my blood somewhere north of Nice
 
The sky is a summit
Whence one can never return
 
But don’t tell the police
But don’t tell the police
