Drive to get somewhere
Drive to get away from there

Driving to control destiny
Driving to flee responsibility

Driven by poetic madness
Driven by melancholic sadness

Drive, deliberately seeking change
Drive, looking for places strange

Driving to avoid a church
Driving on some kind of search

Driven by inebriation
Driven by apocalyptic revelation


I’m A Mess

30 Jan

To look at me you’d never guess
My brain is gone, I’m a mess

I walk around and look alive
Some days I even get in my van and drive

I got the cracks in the skull
I got my mind humming on NULL

The uncarved block?
Or simply dumb as a rock

This dreaded woman has gotten inside my head
She gives clues, yet I’m not getting her to bed

I feel like I’m two steps behind
Victim of my damaged and addled mind

I am trying so fucking hard act like a better person
Forget that sometimes it’s better to just be the dude with a hard-on

You can’t wait to be invited to dinner
If you want to be the dirtbag who gets up in ‘er

I’m not saying that to be a jerk
Long lessons have shown me how this works

Show only the least bit respect
Ignore her but treat her like an object

It’s not very pretty
But it’s won a few victories

Now this lil chick is a bit tricky
She’s destroying my mackin’ strategies

I don’t know my left from right
Don’t know the dark from the light

Can’t tell if I’m cursed or blessed
I just know that my damned mind is a mess


30 Jan

Replacing people
As though each were equal

I had friends and I had a wife
Somethings end but I go on with life

Finding all of these new places
Trading old memories for new faces

A little bit of it hurts
I don’t think I have anymore firsts

Me, old and jaded
My mind tired and faded

These new people in my life mid-tour
Some who may, simply, be flavor du jour

I love them as much or more
As everyone who came before

We end up where we need to be
Me with them and them with me

It lasts as long it needs to
Each paying the house its due

Learning from our interactions
Wounded or healed by our actions

It only makes sense
In the end life happens

Good, bad, or indifferent
These folks are the replacements

Missing Someone

30 Jan

Missing someone
Ain’t no fun

Having someone to miss
Well, that’s perfect bliss

The Whole Of It

13 Jan

Be compassionate
That is the whole of it

Games You Play

13 Jan

The Way is the Way
It’s not a game to play
Walk your path
Enjoy your wrath
As a part of the wholeness
Even your vitriol is full of goodness
I like your irration
It fills me with compassion
Here’s a tip
Don’t assume I’m on your trip
I never asked to be anyone’s opportunity
Terribly sorry you are unable to get what you want from me
You don’t need a leader for your group
You need to find a drunkard and give him some soup
And when you fuck me please use some really good lube…
I may not be the droid you seek,
But even I can turn another cheek

A Tip

12 Dec

Shit, you want to bitch and whine?
Listen kid, I don’t have the time

Your future is yours, so make it
If you don’t like the world then break it

Don’t act the fool
Floating like a bobber in a pool

The country is under occupation
It has been years in anticipation

Times being as they may
People with something to say
Getting doused in pepper spray

Police trampling people’s rights
Rousting campers from their beds at night
People crushed beneath government’s might

There’s something about flies and honey
I don’t mention it now just be funny

Remember things aren’t always as they seem
But, some things may gotten with ease
If one knows The Way to practice peace

So, if you’re feeling like heading to war
I can’t really tell you what you’ve got in store

But, if want feel hip
Listen to this here tip

If you try, I think you’ll find
It doesn’t always hurt to be kind


12 Dec

Etched into the throne of the most high
Each new beginning shall have no goodbye


Upon the shores near which dynamite seethes
An impression of you in which Eternity Breathes

and the regard with which you embrace your common man
Would be obsolete if it were up To time to stand.

Whose to say what we’ve become
A race of trials over Bachelors of tribulation begun

Seed the wisdom of ferocious vision Unity Strength peace love


21 Oct


Mental Isolation

Convinced of my insanity

Having trouble with vanity

Though the voices be kind

I’ve definitely lost my mind

Fighting to get it back

Five gone two left to attack

Using wit and guile

And my own secret smile

With a bit too much pride

I write my name on the side

Tell them exactly what I’ll do

It works each time, this shit ain’t new

So it goes with my personal exorcism

I embrace this mental and spiritual schism

Me and them both

We were all do for some personal growth

Growth through isolation

Growth through dissociation


I Stole the Lizard’s Diamond

21 Oct

I stole the lizard’s diamond

He held it tight like his own hymen

The greatest of thieves

Bats  calls me “Jeeves”

I took what can only be given

I took it with trickery, deceit and diversion

I snuck up on a monk

And rifled his trunk

Took the philosopher’s stone

The old alchemist’s favorite bone

Or on Simon’s Street

The Diamonds from the soles of his feet

Don’t know what to do with this boon

I already up and swallowed the moon

They call it a Sutra

I think the word basket, would suit ya’

The lizard’s secret force

Is about to go open source

Without the constraint of a guru vow

I can give away all of his voodoo now

I stole the lizard’s diamond

Now the rest of ya’ll can have ’em
