Would I lie to you baby? Would I lie to you?

I will lie to you,
hurt you.
I'll cut you in half.
And when I'm finished,
I'll sit here and laugh. :badgrin:

The question is: Who's gonna make my grocery list?

Tigers laugh at hyenas in quietude,
Then teleport
To mate with Amazon jaguars that lick

In moments fate. Hyenas continue
To laugh without listen. And baby jaguar-tiger
Detaches and streches its thumb,
Then redefines numb
Individuals that break the rules, exceptions
Lack acceptions, and break through the wisdom
Of herd. "All you have to do is say yes,"

You make us feel so o o, so o o,
You make them feel so slow, so slow
So slow.

What's the funniest thing you've seen?

Jester in Her Majesty's court,
guilty of greasepaint and grime,
I've been the joke and loud report
of laughter in her pantomime.

Performing flea, cartwheeling tricks-
emotional clown- from scene to scene,
but the funniest of these calisthenics,
were in the watchful eyes of my queen.

If one could sex up your creative chakra,
Would you reveal to me your secret mantra?

I am an angel,
I am safe because of mercy and grace, whole
Love, it's real, feel the glory of surrendered faith.

It won't make sense until
You understand your own language
Making impossible possible
Within spaces in this, our (English)
Language Confirmation.
We allow
Faith



What will it take for you to be fearless?

Where do we all go
when our breathing is slow
and we close our eyes
nowhere at all, I would surmise.

We wake each new day
in the habitual way
and yet -- we're not the same:
that's the existential game.

Question: What do you see out your window?

Autumn trees quiet wind in New England,
Brooks rise, birds put nests together size by size.

Sand swims like sand in air through
Unbroken rocks in deep ocean water, splits.

"The wind whispers Mary." Scene in what is not seen.
A room in a room. "The wind screams Mary."

I watch the sweat join on the skin of my wife.
I watch her listen to vegetables and flowers in our garden.

What do you taste with your ears?

What do you taste with your ears?

Coconuts puddle,
Computer changes

Ok I left for around 20 minutes,
I'm back, a sound spawn,
Music on.

I lost a poem the other day.
I didn't want it anyway.
It's looked like crap
and smelled like piss.
It wasn't half as nice as this.


The question is: Can you drop and give me twenty?

What's your favorite state?
the old man asked the child.
What's your favorite creature?
Is it meek or wild?
What's your favorite ice cream?
Who's your favorite clown?
What's your favorite number?
What's your favorite song?
Even more important,
can I sing along?


The question is: Can I sing along?
