Black Star

Ever morphing
Chameleon
Multiple personas
Androgynous
Lithe and thin
Slithering lizard
Ever lethal
Riveting riffs
Shed like
Snake skins
Ashes to ashes
Through life
Always evolving
Look and style
Finest artist
Of his generation
Widely imitated
Beyond compare
Even in death
Space oddity
Major Tom
Time warped
Messages from
That space
Beyond
Gravity bound
Mother Earth
Waves of sound
Sonic boom
Hauntingly ethereal
De Profundis
Black Star
Final opus
Rock requiem
Last testament
Dark and pixelated
Brooding
Image deconstructed
From a stadium
World tour
When with bravado
He asked us
To dance
How macabre
We shuffle to a
Terminal assault
Invading our senses
Gut wrenching
Lasting legacy
Challenging
Strangely
Beyond comprehension
In every dimension
For those who
Dare to dream
