From the album The Meaning of 8- 2007
Your 8th Birthday
Who could hang a dead man's swing-set from the moon? You did, and then you gave it to the ghosts and the witches. Who can say goodbye with a yodel-ay-hee-hoo? You did, with the promise that the dead are now magicians. Kaidin Kaidin . This hymn rings with the singing of three cheers for the king of the jungle gym. He's the kid who’s sword it is a worm handshake…a birthday cake invitation. You make traffic jams feel like parades. You bury the dead with the faith that makes lightning bugs swarm as if it was graduation. Kaidin Kaidin . Who could change a silly life into a screaming supernova? You do. Who could change my sleepy brain into the eye of a hurricane?
