something strange to earth was sent
dropped some art then simply went
now lonely spiders left on mars
watch red shoes dance on dusty stars
and walls of televisions sing
sweet things about the rebel king
the lad insane, the skinny duke
androgynous inspired fluke
flight of peacock, coloured flash
funkin’ funky ash to ash
china diamond, cold as god
genuinely, truly odd

A worthy tribute to the best of them all, Gail. Brava!
Thank you so much for your comment, Julian. It’s hard to say an original thing about such an icon. Such unusual artistry. All the best to you.
