We are what we think, are we not what we see,
hanging-tight to that which is thought to be known.
Remember the span of time before a Christmas when it is
spend, spend, spent. Now home, cooking, but not happily.
How many, hopeless, long for the clean-up and swallow
quick, choosing a later *******-of-the-mind
rather than a mastication in the now.
The happy full of bliss, fooling self and others,
the sad grief hidden. Grieving a earlier time when all
felt good only all being false memory. Nostalgia. Vagueness,
holding a bad hand, bluffing in dark glasses. Chips all-in
The trees that fill the Amazon toppling, animals and humans
scatter like roaches missing the boat. Wishing to the last,
to conquer the earth. Hoping to be the longest living the life
of riley, imagining a greatness, a false feeling, a well meaning,
The motel rented, a mattress, home to blood-******* ticks,
hitch-hiking home to invest in an I who believe to be blessed to
travel. Who's the sucker? Who is the free-bird hanging in the air?
God clothes in love sublime, feeding those bits of spirit eaten
with chop sticks and plum sauce, the meal sliding down the
Cross to be met with intestinal fortitude. (if only)
Wits in terminal tumultuous slavery.
I am Blue, I am not so new, I am the 'egg-man', I am me, I am you
striving to come-together over what to do. I offer to the poor
deciding who is worthy and them do I bless with coinage or
paper taking no receipt for taxing relief. Taking no time or
courage to meet that one God put in my path, in my face.
No time is the right time. No time hung on the pale-blue wall.
No time clung to the wrist. No time on the bed-side table.
No time in the machine that queues robotically.
Compressed time, an eternal 'now' passed over, missed.
A sad time in want of a glad time. A bad time's visitation in a
hallow human shell. Cold. Cold and lonely in Winter's dark.
A home-run hit clear out of Fenway Park, bouncing off the
windshield of the car you had earlier parked. Looted life, stolen
goods? Goods! What good are goods if they be more weight
that can be carried.
Parading down the narrow street twilling a baton,
knee action bending, a goose-stepping military follows.
For the love of a
God I live in, free me from this charade. Hold up that Holy day,
when all creation lay at my feet. Dominion missed,
an ego with a twisting, a devil in those mathematical details.
Pressed hard in the cranium, controlling a baton, stared upon
by shivering parents and children rushing,
gathering candies thrown from floats
Insects who would have one day rule the world become food for
animals with a human mind and a weaken soul. Feasting. Recipe's
abound, bugs for breakfast, bugs for lunch, Haggis eaten in dark
Wintery five o'clock nights. Insects prepared in the most curious
Cockroaches, bedbugs and me.
