Satellite

Satellite
    by Jewel Kilcher

babies on beach blankets headed for mars
cute guys with crew cuts and the day glow surf boards
there's a pretty lady in a bikini
her eyes are clear
but her teeth look like smashed-out window panes
she's trying to mend her dreams
with sushi and seaweed and carrot juice
 
there's a wide wall
that we can't see over now
but that's ok, we're still learning
mistakes are allowed ...
if you're a satellite
 
yoga classes
so you can look good in your singles bars
california's sure lovely
it's the home of the stars
and everybody is a nice body
but their souls are like shadows
they are hollow inside
they're choked and
hiding behind
power bars and volleyballs and valium
 
there's a wide wall
that we can't see over now
but that's ok, we're still learning
mistakes are allowed...
if you're a satellite
 
we understand a lot of things
about modern technology
but not about dreams
our hearts are on the shelves
we can't fix ourselves,
but we can fix a satellite
 
in hollywood the heroes are strung out on grace
and half-skinned gypsies are screaming, "leave this place!"
 
there's a wide wall
that we can't see over now
that's ok, we're still learning
mistakes are allowed...
if you're a satellite
 
we know how to fix a satellite
 
babies on beach blankets headed for mars
