Haiku improv from DB to REM

Somewhere out in space
David Bowie is saying—
Left at the right time

The darkest timeline
might even be the brightest
just before the dawn

Huh? What in the world?
Autocorrect, you are drunk
that’s saying something

When you just wake up
and find out the world left you
right where you started

It takes a whirlwind
to knock you back on your feet
or at least sideways

I have always been
a mystery to myself
just listen to this

Can’t get there from here
when the world is a monster
been there, know the way
