prophecy?
the spiral arm?
monkeys playing at god
listen to the heart beat
know
the future cares not
its creation constant
beauty unfounded
miracles created upon each thought
its one and the same
know meyou
upon each awakening
There is no empty space

My life as a soap bubble
the miracle of surface tension, we all live in a yellow submarine
ok boomers the x gens say
I was born before the war
Cassandra was a bitch with an ice pick

monkeys playing with fire
the future is seen by the children

it don't take much to pop my bubble to a new awakening beyond the next text box in this perpetual jam 8)

bub bub bubble
no more trouble
you're on the inside now
lookin' out
lookin' out for the cops
cheeze it the fuzz
'bout the coolest phrase in the universe
think about it
Cheeze IT
The Fuzz
not talkin 'bout that patch
of hair on yer chinny-chin chin
talkin' 'bout johnny law
in order
to get me a box of dem Cheeze-Its
little orange squares of bliss
I'm having a snack attack
wonder if one can put jam
on Cheeze-Its
too late, it's the fuzz

lets do the dystopian jam today
talk about self serving leaders
that lie like dirty dogs while people die
oh my...is this too much for a jam ?
YES it is
we note reality, but try to get outside of it
because it doesn't feel real
we must be reading sci-fi, Yet
it looks like today's newspaper
how did we get here
how do we change course
how do we distract our self for some moments
of quiet relief
we must find a way
to resist
yet get away from time to time
i like to write silly poems
and listen to music
and take hikes in the the woods
did I fix anything today
No....but i don't think I made it worse
and if the world needs a gray panther
I'll do my best to picket
but this old body has limits ya know
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

silly to think
better to pun for fun
skipping through insanity

good morning
woke up, got outta bed
dragged a comb across my head
found my way downstairs
and had a cup
eyes fluttering from the recent rise
from my sleeping quarters
eyes fluttering from the New York Times
can any of this be true
are my jams turning into coin tosses
truth or fiction, facts or excerpts
from bad comic book graphic novels
I can't tell anymore, my morning jam
is bitter and wild, tasteless at times
and that's no way for jam to taste
we expect our jam to be sweet enough to calm the beasts
of nightly torture that linger on our tongues
but this is 2020, so we have to dig a little deeper for contentment
find our own courageous jars of peace and love
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

5:50 am
back to sleep
til 6:20
then up
chain saws next door
pee
check gmail
national weather service
studio 8
yahoo news...
nope, he's still alive
unlike the quarter million of us
sacrificed to his own incompetence...
start the coffee
put away the supper dishes
and set out the breakfast ones
english muffin
with olive oil and chili-garlic sauce
poached egg
morning eucharist
desperate normalcy
for abnormal times
.
I'm not an outlier. I just haven't found my distribution yet.

the woman upstairs drags her bike through the hallway
sets off on her journey to work with determination to live
her best life

long after I am gone
poets will poeticize
writers will write
the right stuff, some
will build bridges, some
will soar like hawks
some will 'cause a young man
or woman to want to do the same
that is why the jam is perpetual
even if there is no studio eight
god forbid
words will flow like people waking up
in the morning, like coffee brewing
like those first sips which are always amazing,
words will percolate and pour
swallowed up by waiting ears
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

studio eight is my neighborhood
a place I feel comfortable walking around the block
I never fear getting mugged and always see something that inspires
many neighbors have moved out but the old timers that stayed make it a fine place to habituate

I'm an old-timer myself
(now)
but not one of THE old-timers...
not one of the tribal elders
whose wisdom I sought when I first arrived...
the ones who'd beaten the well-worn path
I now followed...
the culture, the mores, the tone...
this community
was already established by the old-timers
when I washed up on this shore...
I pitch in when I can...
collect a bit of firewood,
tidy up the common area,
maybe once in a while volunteer
to cook...
S8 is so much more than
an electronic abstraction in the cloud...
it's a community
a family
a home
...
.

hangin 'round the hood
telling stories on the corner
old men and women raise cane
or maybe a crutch
or maybe the dead poets that used to live here
wordsmiths with wrinkled skin and bloodshot eyes
fading memories and occasional gems
mined in the caves of time forgotten
secret rooms and dusty attics of gray matter
streaks of brilliance and moments of wisdom
daze of so-so, yet willing
and dedicated to the family
you can't replace family she said
so walk with me around the block one more time
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

where have all the flowers gone
maybe they are with the jammers
in their jammies
maybe the jammers are tired
maybe they are busy with important work
maybe it is a question of timing
maybe they aren't hungry
in any case the show goes on
only takes one determined fool
I should know
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading
