Six Trips Easter

 I would have driven but I didn't have the time,

Forty thousand miles babe,

To , from and between homes,

Making our bones, 


I ain't doing it my way babe,

 No fucking way,

The Old North Church,

You super glued to the status quo,

I Friday night dance away your spark,

I dance on your hard held darkness,

The cold upwelling of the former living,

Souls on melting ice rejoicing,


Hand joining,

And better thinking,

As higher ,

 Wonderful ,

Higher Ground,

"Did you hear about the midnight rambler
Everybody got to go?
Did you hear about the midnight rambler
The one that shut the kitchen door?

He don't give a hoot of warning
Wrapped up in a black cat cloak
He don't go in the light of the morning

The Larry Levi levee broke,

Lorrane was just to dammed high,

Boulders pounded route 36,

Tossed from Mother's pie,


The old Swedes did the math,

They fished,


and drank themselves to death, 


As the New Domocrats got boned,

At some New Haven Dance,

 In a gym,

How the Fish Rots

The fish was rotten long before we stumbled into town,

We were just passing through the summer fog,

But we knew long  before we got to  Pismo how the fish rots,

And that is from the head down,


Now, the job was in Santa Maria,

Bilking medicare,

But the company was an… Read full post »

Day after day,

Alone on this Henry Hill created Goodfellas grin,

The English had just won the war,

like they did a thousand times before,

A little bad dope here,

A little loose pussy there,

And Victoria has her way with Bill,

As Hillary rides her Foster home,

To the happy hun… Read full post »

Dissertation? Who reads one?

Harvard called and asked where have I been,

The most of my application was not filled in,

My professor was there waiting to win,


My dissertaion was done before anyone,

Let me in,

Unread ? 


But I left none of the good stuff in,

Take that you Ivory towered robbers of… Read full post »

Hold On Baby, Or Else


Cold Water,

Baby teen boy perched on rocky wall,

Plastic boat filled with water and beer bottles,


A dance that night,

Attended by two,

A drunk hero and an old golden bitch,


Kicking and scared,

Teen boy panics,

Cold Water,


Feet stomping on fake wood floor,

Captain Snowden: On the Quarterdeck

I occupy the quarterdeck, and have promoted myself to Captain.The ship's aft is close to me, and as starlight replaces the fallen sun, I watch as this great  thing of ours, this spaceship earth, spins away from the sun each day, I do long to be where I was born and raised. Ho… Read full post »

I Are a Sea Otter - Don't tell my wife

Dear Kurt would have me half seal,

Back to the sea to evolove in the near shore pacific,

But the PGE contract to track me has my guts ripped open,

And a transmitter installed,

A wired gut,

And today floating off the central coast of Diablo Canyon California,

Was this human otter,

"The Soft Parade Has Now Begun...."

I, nor Jim,( that Jim any way) ever went to seminary school,

No,  Jack of hearts  did not live long enough to  meet Jim,

To be in that number,

Standing Behind It...

I watch the hiding hypocrites,

I live right among them in all their willingness to suck the well dry.

I am growing fond of their fast fading paradise,

As the developers pile on for profit ,

The local government sells  our soul cheap and often,

Demand remains strong and supply sho… Read full post »

A pretty decent day...

           The woodpeckers are still missing, and I miss them. I did forget them, true...and they have every right to be mad, but my thoughts are scattered across thousands of miles and I just cannot keep it all in front of me all the time.

Polly's Pond

Where is Polly's Pond?

Where perhaps your Merlin dropped his magic wand,

Before the Oysters died and love went away,

Where Bilbo and the crew came to stay.

And who renamed her Polly? And just what did,

The Natives have to say?

I can see the magician in a deerskin,

Snowden Leaking Like A Mirror

 The latest from the " big leaker " : From the humble digs of his Russian rooms, signals flow like a river down into the abyss.
