Depiction of David Bowie’s ‘Aladdin Sane’ album cover, by Maya Garcia, Visual Artist

I’ve decided not to accept your demise,
You did not die-
You have just escaped scrutiny for awhile.
Like Ziggy, you will return one day,
Either on this plane,
Or the next.
Your mortal shell was just a beautiful form,
Holding a spirit too big
To remain earth-bound,
For you always had one foot in the stars,
Now you’re symbiotic,
Astronautic
Kaleidoscopic,
So I shall not be melancholic,
Visitor from another planet,
Your membership card just expired for awhile,
But we’ll catch you on the flip side,
For another wild ride.
Tell Jimi I said “hi,”
And I’ll look forward to another cosmic cabaret,
Someday.
