Unorthodox Congeniality

The highest form of intelligence is to observe without judgment
Resist descending into the fantasy world of explanations for things that feel inexplicable
Too much wariness spoils the most enchanting parts of being human
You cannot roller skate in a buffalo herd
Life is much too peculiar to do it alone
Do giraffes recognize mirth?

Saturday Night

Highballing through the bubble wazoo
Sustained by a diet of excuses and apologies
This next breath an exorcism
Beyond the tyranny of compare and contrast
Black ants always fly together
Getting only so far with a shit-eating grin

Hopes and Other Misses

The man with his fetish, like a baby with its blanket, has security
Fooled by the dribble of worry and waste
Voices berate me into making up stories that just don’t fly
While the moon-eyed girl blossoms in the scattered moments of jubilation
Hope never leaves you alone
I wish I were full of donuts rather than existential dread

Canine Precocity

In the fine art of dog play
Below the waist has its own set of values
Special messages revealed by babies, dogs and drunks
Always attempting to see what’s besides, behind, and beyond
Spontaneous messages of irrational knowledge
Delusions are usually necessary to get through life

Some Damn Thing

I like to make things that hold your attention for awhile
Turbulent romanticism wears like a little black dress in a hurricane
A sense of absurdity, improvised and genuine 
That surrealistic pose confronting the vicissitudes of some damn thing
Frenetic breathing of passion and caprice
Multiple possibilities for self-differentiation

Beat

My mind is a pocketful of loose change
Dirt in the fuel line, cabbage growing in my ears
What is freedom and to whom does it belong?
I don’t trust my skills wrangling unrelated stimuli,
Emancipating myself from the flypaper of bogus philosophies
Yet at the gas station of love I get the self-service pump

In & Out

Garbage in, garbage out - Common knowledge
If you push something hard enough, it will fall over — Fudd's First Law of Opposition 
It’s like having bees live in your head
So many variables creating a chaotic, indecipherable mess
Sometimes I amaze myself, and other times I can’t remember what day it is
In a cow pasture watch where you step.

Counterclockwise

Investigation of the utterly inscrutable 
Her arms were full of sapphires of the moment
Aren’t reasons what we manufacture?
Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence
You see, thoughts create the illusion that you’re in the driver’s seat
From dreams emerge the intimacies of our being

Appearing Now

Different orders of reality disturb dreams
Spirit animals take hallucinatory form
They needle and taunt like ancestral phantoms
I deny ownership
Too monstrous, this mood of misplaced energy
Karmic theatre of a mislead self

The Greater Whole

Feeding on disturbance, wasting chance and serendipity
Blinding the display of  elemental energy moments
All that’s beloved passes away
Memories decay, afterimages survive
Its sacred strength is rendered weightless
A paradox that defies gravity
