still and small and so mundane,
the greatest story ever told.

I am just a kindred spirit,
a runner who is running still.
Welcome to the longest mile,
the most costly thing you'll ever hold,
wonderful is the journey,
the greatest story ever told.


when we are young,
we expierance such moments of happiness..
we see it as atlantis must have been.
and then we grow up,
and our hearts break in two
Life passes most people by while they’re making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime I've left pieces of my heart here and there, and now there's almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent
So then I fell like that girl from a balance beam.
A gymnasium of eyes were all holding on to me. I lifted one foot to cross the other
and I felt myself slipping. It was a small mistake. Sometimes that is all it takes.
So I’m drinking, breathing, writing, singing
My mind races with all my longings
But cant keep up with what I got
To days of inspiration,
Playing hookey, making something
Out of nothing, the need
To express to communicate,
To going against the grain,
Going insane,
Going mad

To loving tension, no pension
To more than one dimension,
To starving for attention,
Hating convention, hating pretension,
Not to mention of course,
Hating dear old mom and dad

To riding your bike
Midday past the three piece suits
To fruits, to no absolutes
To Absolut, to choice
To the Village Voice
To any passing fad
To being an us for once,
Instead of a them

Wine and beer!
To hand-crafted beers made in local breweries
To yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese
To leather, to dildos, to curry Vindaloo
To Huevos Rancheros, and Maya Angelou
Emotion, devotion, to causing a commotion,
Creation, Vacation

Mucho masturbation

Compassion, to fashion, to passion
When it's new
To Sontag
To Sondheim
To anything taboo
Ginsberg, Dylan, Cunningham and Cage
Lenny Bruce
Langston Hughes
To the stage
To Uta
To Buddha
Pablo Neruda, too
Why Dorothy and Toto went over the rainbow
To blow off Auntie Em
Bisexuals, trisexuals, Homo Sapiens,
Carcinogens, hallucinogens, men,
Pee Wee Herman
German wine, turpentine, Gertrude Stein
Antonioni, Bertolucci, Kurosawa
Carmina Burana
To apathy, to entropy, to empathy, ecstasy
Vaclav Havel, The Sex Pistols, 8BC
To no shame, never playing the fame game
To marijuana
To sodomy
It's between God and me
To S & M

La Vie Boheme !

are you gonna live your life wondering? standing in the back looking around? are you going to waste your time thinkin how you've grown up? how you've missed out?
what good is it actin serious?

some ones gonna ask you what its all about, whats you gonna say for yourself?
i'm on my feet
i'm on the floor
i'm good to go
all i need is just to hear a song i know
i wanna allways feel like part of this was mine.

But if the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a wall.
Then I think we would see the beauty.
Then we would stand staring in awe at our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges,
like a story told by the fault lines and the soil
