My Runaway Slave
(for DC)

O angel, O angel,
my runaway slave,
you fly like an eagle–
so tender and brave.

Beyond the cacophony
the city can bring;
your crystalline bell
continues to sing.

O angel, O angel,
my runaway slave,
you carry me with you–
away from the maze.

When I dissolve,
your comforting form
shines like the sun
dependable and warm.

O angel, O angel,
my runaway slave,
you fly like an eagle –
so tender and brave.

Beyond the cacophony
the city can bring,
your crystalline bell
continues to sing.
