Smear the Stars

Across your canvas, smear the stars

And paint the world you dream to paint;

The world’s unleashed its ugliness:

But you – you have escaped the taint

 

Like Pegasus, you’re born to fly,

Though be it just on handlebars –

So paint, with all your tears and hands,

And take your rightful place

Among the stars
