After the war
   they rebuilt me
   in my own image.

Look!  
   I'll step out of a cloud
       for you --  
    -- a crowd, I mean.
   I'll dance our names
       into the autumn rubble.
       Tap, tap...
       no big production.

   Perfect I am not:
       Frankenstein's monster!
       This real me's a mockery.
       I have lightning for blood...
           Hee-hee! It tingles.

   I'll
       I'll blow myself a kiss
       in your eyes.
           (Did you know?
           Mine are now light-adapted.)
       Tell me
           that you've always known
           this thunder I stole,
           known it was mine all along.

       Perfect I am not
           as I take flight,
           rustling,
               my doves mere pigeons.
               But I'm as far as the earth
                        and striped stockings
                                 could ever hope to fly me.

The stairs lie quiet
like a promise unbroken
I try them with my toes now
I try them with my naked feet
No one sees my naked feet
as for a while
I make them mine
the stairs beyond my door
