A Happy Song

I am happy. I am happy. I take my pills and auto-sync With a world on the brink. I am happy. I am happy. I say this to not think About the poison that I drink. I am happy. I am happy. I watch sports and do not blink. If my team loses I will […]

Meditation on Happiness

Happiness appears without a trace Like bullets shot through a human’s face. Velocity and trajectory tell how long That smile will stay and belong. Happiness does not dwell on the news. It does not focus on psychotics and distorted views. It does not worry about cold weather. Or the political games that last forever. Happiness […]

tis the season

tis the season to get in one’s car. meet all one’s friends at the local bar. get drunk off one’s ass. try not to drive very far. tis the season to bite one’s lip. sitting with family as you hear a short quip. to think of all the baggage we carry. that weight we need […]

The Practice

The Practice

To feel one’s feet. The space between one’s meat. To find one’s balance. The symmetry that is substance. To extend one’s back. The spine inside intact. To open one’s lungs. The air inside unsung. To have one’s joints torn apart. The re-alignment gained, a new start. To know one’s body again. The spaces between friends. […]

I’m thirty five going on eighty. Looking at life I find it shady. No sun when I needed it. Gray skies most days. I find myself wanting To get on my knees and pray. To be thankful And forget the rest today.

Little Pills

Little pills in my brain, Little pills made of chemicals, Little pills in my brain, Little pills all the same. There’s a green one and a pink one And a blue one and a yellow one, And they’re all made of chemicals And they all look just the same. And the people in the houses […]

I believe again. Men did walk on the moon. The science was legit. No hoax by our government. I saw the rocket that propelled Man out of earth’s orbit. Shot us to our satellite As man looked down in delight. I believe again. That conspiracy does not rule. That thousands did not tie Their tongues […]

Political Tourism

I am not posting the following video to arouse a political discussion.  I mean come on, these people hardly warrant a serious response.  I am posting it as a device to illustrate a few theories of mine. 1.  Politics and political nostalgia have become a form of tourism, like a virtual game that some people […]

While Eating Our Breakfast

Posted by on Aug 31, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, Philosophy, psychology

Philosophy teaches us. Unsettles us. With what we already know. It works by remixing what you know And makes it strange. Philosophy estranges us from the familiar. Providing and provoking a new way of thinking. Once the familiar becomes strange You are never again the same. Self-knowledge can never become unknown. Political philosophy is a […]

Checking the site meter. That’s me, watching me. Looking for you, to read. That hour long visit was from my best friend. His name is Googlebot and he’s made of tin. The life of an artist is desolate and lonely. Putting out feelers to the world is my only. Connection outside of these walls. Outside […]
