Hour for Magic

‘Resident mockery

Give us an hour for magic

We of the purple glove
We of the starling flight and velvet hour
We of Arabic pleasure’s breed
We of sun dome and the night

Give us a creed to believe
a night of lust

Give us trust in the night

Give of color hundred hues
a rich mandala for me and for you

And for your silky pillowed house
a head, wisdom and a bed

Troubled decree
resident mockery has claimed thee

We used to believe in the good old days
We still receive in little ways
The things of kindness and unsporting brow

Forget and allow.’

– Jim Morrison
