Swing Out Sister in Heaven

I imagine,
(perhaps, dream)
that if there is a
Heaven,
Swing Out Sister
plays on a continuous,
comforting silky loop
for all eternity,

the warm synths
whooshing slowly,
the kettledrums
gently thundering,

and
since this is my
version of heaven,
I will not have
to explain why
Swing Out Sister
is playing
to anyone
there.

[For Friday 55 at Friday 55. Also, get Swing Out Sister's newest creation "Almost Persuaded" at http://www.swingoutsister.com.]

  1. I have to say, without any idea of Swing Out Sister, I love the way this rolls itself out--really seems to tell all there is to tell about what heaven is--one's own personal one--and surely the last stanza says it all.Thanks so much for swinging along with a 55, Mosk. And as we say a la the g-man, have a kickass weekend.

    1. Happily and thanks. SOS had a few mid-sized hits in the 1980s-90s. They just released their latest crowdfunded cd and I loved it.

  2. As long as it's not the Biebs, I'm good.

    1. I don't really know JB too much, but I love that song "Love Yourself." That's a great record.
