i met jim jones the other night

mind orgasms @ terminal velocities

i met jim jones the other night
in a whispered seance call
my vine slung a heavy tooth
and the kool aid was battery acid mortifying skin
yet closet clouds leaked their swans
over through cracked skies
and on the ground
miniature muscle men tormented testosterone pills
till viagra cried for mercy at the knees of a wounded mary
lourdes was flooded by the mississippi straw
hats and wrinkled eyes of sunburn chapped
minds
alarmless armless socket of scurvy
toothless in a keg of richmond jackets
bull run popping over the hill stampeding hearts
bloodless in letting at the barbers
quartet
harmonising in razors to the tune
of three blinded mice
men too few
to fire back
women & children huddled like hens & eggs
and the mirror kill of sundance stifling the redrum drum

.
.homesick. but homeless.

last night Baltimore had its 300th murder
where do we begin to address this reality
people with good housing and good jobs and excellent mental health
are not inclined to kill, but greed
has sucked the life from those opportunities

what can we say about the mental health of america
when one man can convince thousands of citizens to drink the kool aid
and that's one incident
it's possible love was missing from their lives I think
they felt abandoned
and just like the family aspect of brutal street gangs
it's better than no love at all

but what do I know
well. ...I do know that I am loved
and I don't feel like killing anyone
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

and that being the pro.found.

self love. and the gift of giving.

that, the currency of life, its presence of meaningful value.


simply too rare.
with everyone at the s.take.
soylent green legions .


thank you for your w3rds.

i heard my eyes softly weeping
in reality of truths
awesomely creeping
