Honest, It's not what it looks like...

No, I swear, Boss, we were studying and just fell asleep!

Siren Song

Picture by Bo Bartlett

is the one song everyone
would like to learn: the song
that is

the song that forces men
to leap overboard in
even though they see the beached skulls

the song nobody
because anyone who has heard it
is dead, and the others can't remember.

Shall I tell you the secret
and if I do, will you get me

out of this bird suit?

I don't enjoy it here
squatting on this
looking picturesque and mythical

with these two feathery
I don't enjoy singing
this trio, fatal and valuable.

will tell the secret to you,
to you, only to you.
Come closer. This

is a cry for help: Help me!
Only you, only you can,
you are

at last. Alas
it is a boring song
but it works every time.

Earlier This Year,

The Red Dirt Girl and I went to the Natural History Museum in Houston to see the Terracotta Warriors exhibition. In the evening, we were booked into The Planetarium to see the Led Zeppelin laser-show, sound and light, projected in 3D, seemingly all around.

Nowhere on the interwebs can I find the opening sequence, a sci-fi zeppelin, light-oars waving like an intergalactic galley, moving slowly through the space above us, toward a fantasy horizon.
Some of the later part of the show's on Youtube, so here it is.

If you like Led Zepp, and this comes to anywhere near you, take your sweetheart and swoop through mystic worlds. You won't be disappointed.
