He was Out There. Out There where Everything happens.
The original Starman who fell to earth, a cosmic cyclone Major Tom, navigating the labyrinth upon which he found himself. He had much to teach, although I often wondered if this planet was actually ready for him. Nah. But maybe now… ?
Hey did anyone notice American Horror Story Freak Show gave him a fitting tribute, a perfect swan song?
Back in the glitter days a Bowie concert was The Place To Be. Years of the scavengers, seasons of the bitch. We’d put on our red shoes and dance the blues, all us rebel rebels who’d torn our dress, face a mess. Ground controllers striving to be Heroes. Just for one day.
The original Starman has been taken back to the stars. Watch for him in the night skies, the silver rush of Pleiades, the belt of Orion, the red twinkling of Mars and the blush of Venus. He’ll be there, stark as a space oddity, bright as a diamond dog.
I’m gonna miss this guy. Very much.
