Bang Flash Fire

Bang Flash Fire

Bang! Flash! Fire!
Three words to describe
The end of a dream.

Bang! Flash! Fire!
Three words that say
This road is now blocked.
The fingers that formed
The chords are too weary
To ride the neck
And dumchicka beat
On the strings.

Bang! Flash! Fire!
Three words to describe
The feelings for the loss
Of the voice that once soared
And found the good note.

What to do with the songs
That are unfinished?
What to do with the songs
Unplayed and unsung?

Plans become ash! Smoke!
Four words to define
Loss and heartbreak.

Plans become ash! Smoke!
Are they the words
For the half formed art
That sits on the stand
In front of the chair?
Is this really an end?
Is the time spent
On this fragile art
A total loss and waste?
This should not be the end!

The words leave the stand
In front of the chair.
They land on the paper
That is on the desk.
An end is only an end
If there is no epilogue.
The pen comes out!

Bang! Flash! Fire!
Three words that
Are not an end.

Bang! Flash! Fire!
Three words that
Are a call to arms!
The remodeling of art
Begins to take place.

A word is dropped here.
A line is added there.
Choruses only appear once.
The lyrics are stronger
Without the chords.
The words ring truer
Without the melody.
What was first an end
Becomes a rebirth.

The artist
Slips out the window
As the door
Is locked.
For now and etern?
