Tacit Blue

from by Michael Guy Bowman



Back in the lab I’m running the test
If you won’t fly then I won’t rest
Turbines turning in the tunnel of love
Upon that perch sits my dove

Built for stealth like a silent blade
My cobalt queen adorned in jade
Navy seal but Air Force-made
Please be true, the things you’ll do
Tacit Blue

Hear my siren sound her bell
Your heart belongs to someone else
Sapphire spy you were built for war
My best girl a government whore

I should have known that’s what you’d be
I set you up they set you free
How could you do this to me?
Like a shrew the tramp just flew
Tacit Blue

Years go by and I get no sign
Until one day by chance I find
Blackbird, Valkyrie standing in place
Between their wings - familiar face

Oblong dame - a museum piece
Eternally posed for eyes that feast
Home at last with cousin and niece
But once I knew the other you
Tacit Blue
