Sparks (a poem)

I woke up at a weirdly early hour this morning…

Sparks fly
to escape the friction

Sparks fly
to stave off boredom

Sparks fly
to meet their fate

Sparks fly
to have something to do

Sparks are a band
featuring the Mael brothers

Sparks did a song
called ‘Dance Godammit’

Sparks also did a song
with Jane Wiedlin

Ron Mael
used to have a Charlie Chaplin mustache

Sparks create light

Sparks make fire
Sparks catch people by surprise
Sparks are what we hope for when it’s right
