Fear of flying

bury me
bury me!
bury me right here
bury me wherever you like

bury me just bury me
bury me in your fertility
bury me!
i just wanna make babies
bury me in christian humility
—some pretty story like that
bury me just bury me
bury me oh! marry me!

marry me to technology
marry me to a cyborg jesus
to some new fable of progress
bury me in your national dress
—i’ve always been cultural
bury me in dollar bills
—millions and millions of zeros!

i just wanna be buried
in something
something i can feel
something big enough
to be buried in

bury me in rocket ships
that can escape tornados
—go start a colony on mars
with workers cloned from my dna
maybe one of them will figure it out!

bury me!
i need to be buried
in something
i can believe in

it’s a frightening thought
to not be buried
to be free of something that big
—big enough to be buried in

bury me! hold me down
with something!

before i fly away…
