I’ve got a planet in my pocket

I’ve got a planet in my pocket
Radio in my head
I am surfing misdirected waves of the living and the dead
There are saints in every quarter
And a sunspot in the sky
Or maybe it’s just a forgotten world
Embedded in my eye

I’ve got a cloud inside my mindscape
It’s bigger than the world
Invisible to you and me
Because it’s more that what we are

I’m looking for some missing cards
In the stacked deck that is my life
There are too many jokers and not enough queens
Too many clubs but not enough scenes
Lucy fell out of the sky, bounced three times
Red diamonds sounding like wind chimes
As they rattled down the drain
I look to where my heart should be
But there is just a spade
