Androgynous Angel- a tribute
Androgynous Angel in white
Wings of satin about to take flight
like some Space Oddity
searching for a bit of life.
I gaze in fascination at this being
which entered my house as a vinyl cover.
You flirt around my consciousness
morphing again and again;
speaking to me from your place on the wall.
Rebel Rebel is your rally call.
Let's dance in red shoes and blue jeans
until we’re dancing in the streets,
unified by the music.
But you didn't stop there.
You surprised us with
a kiss of modern love
and absolute color blindness--
sloughing the image once again
from rainbows to black suits and fashion models.
You made non-conformity the norm
And did it in style.
If only you could have stayed
a little while longer...
You paved the way for new sounds;
who will be a trailblazer now?
As your flitting around in celestial skies
an androgynous angel taking that
heavenly chorus to new heights.
