This Is Sort of My Goodbye to You

Are you still waiting for that message
          on your answer machine
 from Jesus Christ?
          Is there a place in Heaven 
  Awaiting this Dionysus.
               I can't blow 
kisses to you for all eternity. 
     Tell me if Persephone 
gives you good kiss for 
  me-does the grass grow 
backwards to make
     Life Reserved.
          Are memories of
David Cassidy still
          down there with
     I never needed a stone
        To remember you,
now that you returned to
               the womb.
