we’ll be together forever

he’s holding me forever
on the verge of midnight black
hands of the lake
slapping his falling shore forever arms
that play dinosaur in the dark
vacant thunder and flash forever
where the little red and blue
warning lights blink on top
of the nuclear power plant
the forever steam like living earth animal
clouds climbing against the black
still his dinosaur forever hope
solid arms around me
unafraid of the word
leaving his own forever mouth
the lake dances
its happy tune
while everybody’s having babies
everybody’s cooking
a future nuclear steam pretty picture
window to believe in together believe in
his forever arms
his forever arms
in the dinosaur falling dark
