morning walk

Post by constantine » October 26th, 2012, 10:12 pm

reduced polarity
i can breathe again!
hit the barrios
la barracuda for lunch
el cuisino salvadoros
had some arroyo conquista
pretty good - i dare say
the arroyo was a little grainy
but the conquista del sausolino
covered it like granny's feathered downer
a glass of fernet and i'm on my way!
life is on the upswing
the underpass, beautiful this time of year
i sit on the overhang by the tracks
where i can see the cars shooting the tube
i like it when i can see them and they can't see me
i can smoke a bowl in peace and space
into highlandtown then drift downward
through canton and drain into the point
a place we all end up at sooner or later
i hit the grind and the dead end
and wonder about the grime between the cobblestones
the bacterial cultures that live, die, and propagate
perhaps edgar allan poe hocked a loogie there one night
i'd even say it's highly likely that he did
it's the climate - the atmospheric conditions
fogs, mists and vapors from the sea
jungle fevers, sultry innuendos
it's the brine that gets to you
it gets in your blood and things get goofy
like a moral malaise, you loosen up
you drift from one alley to the next
maybe another bowl by the garage
then slink down portugal street
back behind broadway
i know there's a whorehouse there
believe me, i've seen evidence
i'm not an expert or anything,
but i can pick up a vibe better than most
picking up vibes is my business
i harness the vibes and then crank out
poetry like a goddamn poetry machine
