Helen Ruggieri

out of the cave
out of the depths
out of the dark
out of the egg
the dark bird with the siren song
shrieking sonic booms
over Tokyo Bay
over Yokohama
over Osaka
over the tip of the world
out of the mine
out of the dark
into the world
machine gun bullets swerving by
the boom of amps
the boom of guns
all Japan under the curse
of the dark bird of song
bird of shriek and thump
of overthrow and underpass
of rock and roll
