Big Mean Man

In the dark
I hear the suffle
of dancer’s feet.

I see lightning
I feel thunder
and rising heat.

I feel a tremble
a premonition
I can’t explain

there’ll be doom
there’ll be destruction
and lovely pain.

Big mean man
put your fingers
on my wrist.

Big mean man
what I most fear
I can’t resist.

Big mean man
be big
and mean to me.
