for Paisley Park Studios (Chanhassen, MN)
They say all you are is gold glitter
and superhero underwear. No.
Play it out. Let it spin. The air
is the groove — it catches.
Real time. Dance. Real thing.
The magic: a knot of sound,
a brightness, baby, I’m a star —
our own hearts, open, circling,
yes, that’s how music is made.
