Two Round Corners

Two examples of Round Corners. . .  Unrelated, yet very similar, at least to my eye and ear.

Can you feel it?

AnnMarie writes of one here:  Round Corners

Ian and the boys “Think in Round Corners” here:

Think in Round Corners (by Ian Scott Anderson)

All of you sit up in bed
Don’t think in straight lines ahead
Can’t sleep? The head spin?
Don’t think in circles, it’ll do you in

Think back to the dream you had
No sense of being good or bad
Jump to the left, jump to the right
Think round corners into night

Let’s go in wet corridors
Dive down drains
Draw strength from machinery
It’s all the same
Thinking round corners
Think round corners, I say

Pretty girl with neon eyes
Best man between white thighs
Bridegroom didn’t know a thing
Got his love in lights, she wears two rings

Think back to that dream you had
Blue boy sorry, pink girl sad
Yellow cow, big-eyed moon
All coming round the corner soon

Let’s stand in rapids
Cling to carnivals
Spit life from the maypole
In savage ceremony

Let’s go in wet corridors
Dive down drains
Draw strength from machinery
It’s all the same
Thinking round corners
Think round corners, I say

Paper cowboys, tin drums banging
Where the white man comes
Landowners with whips and chains
But soft in bed amidst warm rains

Thinking back to the dream they had
Jack and Jill, Jack the lad
Homestead, home free
How about leaving some for me?
