Running along the edge of a wet pool deck mid Summer

I used to say I’d rather drown

than die by fire— be charred beyond recognition by flames.

Yet now,  I stand self adducing—

spewing from my mental time after time that I rose from those blazing snares

purged, scourged, blackened with soot; but exculpated and true.      And now the solace I thought was to come upon drowning seems quite vindictive as I thrash about the relentless waves cast up from Haides’ seas of mist and darkness. Sweet sounds of Seirēns tease the thistles my ears and for moments brief, but always sure, I feel the tide changing. Shifting. Gentle.      I float

I was so bogged down with the current plight of humanity that I started to get mentally blockaded with all the inhumane happenings of the world. Eh, needless to say if you know anything about the science of being fxcking great—you know AIN’T NO BODY GOT TIME FOR THAT NEGATIVITY! So I pushed those thoughts to the back of my head and took the collective advice of Michael Jackson, Wallace D. Wattles and My Hunny. In short: DON’T TRY TO CHANGE THE WORLD EGYPT! JUST DO YOU . . . well thanks guys I suppose I can’t screw that up. Continue reading
