out of our right minds
we would rely on a left
bipedal biorbital
heartbeaten footfalls
associations drawn
rights and wrongs
till it all blends to one

found an indian guide
in mexican hat
he would take me on the res, take me back
and over the slick rock
to the cliff dwelling

12 cans of beer is all he want
didn't realize he'd drink them all
before we ever got there
which we never did
cos after we used the first spare
and the sun retreated quickly behind the hills
i got stupidly scared

his little dog followed the four wheel drive
i offered it water it didn't want

what a strange place
what a strange land
"you find gold up here
in the dips and holes, heavy,
so it stays put
while everything else blows off.. "

missed the trailhead at grand gulch
walked half a day along the rim
the promise of springs indicated on the crude map
fall away like a dream in elevation below me

headed south across the high desert
pottery untouched in a hundred years
found a wash
i'll follow it down
a twenty foot drop at the end will kill me

walked the rest of that day and into the night
build a fire in the wash
sitting quietly with remorse
the bullfrog, seeing some portal, jumped into the flame
his seared belly, weeping on the rock
water is heavy to carry
and i might have enough for a day

by mid morning i had reached the gulch
red rocks smoothed
by deluge after deluge
dropped away two hundred feet below me
nowhere near the bottom
and a full day's walk from the road

smooth riff from the e-piph
drop hot rocks in my canteen
coffee on the way
the buzzard screams
another day
"These words don't make me a poet, these Eyes make me a poet."

Today Today
is a journey
I will do naught
but what I please

the morning is mine
and the evening
the night belongs to you
"These words don't make me a poet, these Eyes make me a poet."

the cars, buses & motorcycles
the ship´s sirens
(I can see how the river looks like today)
some far away voices arguing
my neighborg´s bathroom
the birds
the elevator
the wind in the persianas
(sounds of a misty morning
while I´m still in bed)

I was just sitting
but you read it different,
they offered me wine & conversation
(a peculiar one)
& asked me to take him some photos
he smiled and said that he wanted my photos...
then, you came
said your name
said that you like the place, the music and the cause
and in a weird and polite language
offered me your cuatro por cuatros
to help me, to help him and to help the others
I could only laugh
and tell you
if you could take us a photo

I barely remember my lobotomy
it seemed like such a simple thing
to reach from the night into the morning
I'm a sucker for a dream
"These words don't make me a poet, these Eyes make me a poet."

Dreamscape fade into a bright reality
the sun speaks to me before total awakening
promising heat hot and burning in a haughty voice
I jump from bed needing coffee and the Jam words flow freely
as the smell awakens my muse screaming for freedom.
Penned promises of a new day my future solidifies.
Becoming two again not one lonely and afraid
to die a lone in a cold turn shoulder
to the dying world.
September 16 ah the days fly to it ,
simple plans for a simple man
and woman tying the knot
but promising not to make it
a noose
leave it loose
so love isn’t strangle
with honor and respect
till death we depart
this tired cold world.

Love is a journey
not a destination
it releases, not captures

the morning has a smell
much richer than coffee
it's prism breaks the light
"These words don't make me a poet, these Eyes make me a poet."

I've never experienced love without a noose.
I've always been strangled and bound in the dark
never to break free from the memories of time
living in a nightmare that has stifled my rhyme
as the ink drips on the paper like the tears from my eyes.
