Yippee for Ypres

Post by stilltrucking » July 14th, 2012, 2:11 pm

A Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt kind of saturday

he wrote this for Joan Baez


&
I wrote this for you
and Doreen and Judih

High Q
I Q
low brow scowl

All things bright and beautiful
grow dim and decay
waiting around to die
another day

Life and death
in the slow lane
nothing ever happens
except when I am driving or typing

Jack knew time
Jack knew karma
Jack be quick
got out quick

Jack and his dick
real gone chicks
wrote like a lover
lived like a lush
the lush life
ain't no good life
it's just my life

thank you Ti Jean
thank you St Jack
write to me about Nietzsche
tell me about Jesus and Buddha
Heaven and hell

I admit I read it to start with like this...

Hi, cutie
I think you're cute
Low brow scowl
`Do you know, I was so angry, Kitty,' Alice went on...`when I saw all the mischief you had been doing, I was very nearly opening the window, and putting you out into the snow! And you'd have deserved it, you
little mischievous darling!

I want to be cute as Raymond Chandler
cute as a pearl onion on a banana split

Don't want to get too cute with it, I wrote it for artguy too. just happened over on perpetual jam, truth be told I did not think of you till after I wrote it. But when I did think of you I was glad cause it was as close to the truth as I can get with a woman. and I could not have writen it without your reading consciousness the past couple years, has it been two years now we been punching at eather ?

Wake UP one of his mediorce books it seems, but it was a work of passion
si it seems to me.

I been sleeping to it for a couple of nights now.
I see the Misogyny in him
The mote in his I and the beam in mine.

Did the Buddha really compare women to crocodiles or is that out of little Ti Jean's girls got cooties childhood nightmares?
My own latent homosexuality my dread of Oeidipus wrecks.
My wasn't Jesus not tempted or at leas why is it not important to him.
Buddha's mother's name was Magic

Mother Magic come to me
let it be let it be

On lordy this is turning into a Bible Quiz :roll:


i wonder as I
wander all over the corpses in flanders field

Don't think of me, Jack, cause anyway it might hurt. That's what I have heard from the mouths of women in writing, it might hurt. :P

I don't know, Jack. Maybe there was temptation that was buried and not stood up or a prior knowledge of what was going to and then a lot of preparation to insure it could have no effect.

Yes. :P I can read without thinking. We're all good going down the highway at the side of the road is all the wild animals. See the bobcat and the Eagle and the hyena. We are at all times arriving.

Bukowski poem born into this, I don't know but a couple of poems of his but that one impressed me

you mentioned it maybe on mingo's lingo

I don't know how you read dame but I think you got a good eye, so write for you, I write for everyone but mostly for myself

never know where it goes
got to go for it
another Bukowski poem I mangle

And I don't like the guy one bit,
not a good guy at all
just a bitchin poet

The only temptation staring me in the face is blood lust

A vexing evil
back in the year one
my father's hell did slowly go buy

Ha Ha Jack, took a little while to figure out the timing, cause I thought we were mayhaps writing this stuff in our sleeps, which wouldn't surprise me one bit, since I spend quality sleeps time with you, too.

I dreamed it was 1963 and I was crazy again.
Thursday morning getting ready to hit the road, gained back two pounds cause I deviated from my routine. I got to peddle my bike ten miles every day, and the weight just falls off, trying to figure out why I buy a lottery ticket and what would I do with the money if i won, new teeth. Jitterbug says playing the lottery shows a complete lack of faith. Jitterbug is the second oldest friend i have on this planet. We were all getting saved back in the seventies, some of us were even getting water baptized. some of us were baptized by fire, that is the way I think of mingo's baptism. that was a strange little movie I saw fifty years ago, I remember bits and pieces, scenes in black and white, and an automobile, jules and jim.

friendship is Friendship for me
a religion
And George Fox ranted against the "professors" jitterbug reads the bible through every year from genesis to revelation, but he is not a professor.
