run on empathy

drained they was

runnin on empathy alone

clothes tattered

eyes red thoughts 

burned black elbows

an knees nicked 

tummy grumbles throat

gurgles breath wheeze

please don’t leave 

me we got all 

night don’t we?

someone loves you

Someone you love, there’s a feeling you’re circling them all the while, watching out for them, looking over their shoulder; follow them to market, smile when they smile, across from them on the subway train, flickering light, blink when they blink, in the rolling uneven snaking through the city substreets. Thoughtful to your thinking, cry when you cry. Someone loves you, there’s a feeling they’re circling you all the while.

Oddity #8

A sea cucumber crawled out of the salad, in the middle of the night, caught a cab back to the sea. Haunted by nightmares of sliced tomatoes.

The cab driver got paid in croutons. The service station demanded cash for gas. He waited, in a hopeless state, finely seasoned with garlic and herb.

Someone drove up in a hybrid electric. They stepped out before him. The sunlight was clearly absorbed by their personal microfibre solar paneling. Purchased at REI for some exorbitant amount.

He could see and almost was moved by their aural pre-eminence. Still, he had not forgotten the sun, with whom he shared a deep m-path.

The sun was never paid for its efforts, either. And the sun never complained, neither.

The inroads mazed and became single track, breaded, unleaded, in a dirt road so dirty in the woods there were wooden signs painted and tacked to trees pleading “please drive slow! no wake! save our road”. So dirt clean the nature of it all.

This was the one. He and the sun had traveled long and far to the extra wonderful place of great and even renewal.

They saw and they knew. The sky turned red, from blue. He followed then into the lesser known.

m-path (song)

i took the m-path

out of the city, today

i took the blue line

just to see you, okay

 

i took the m-path

i had to see you, okay

abandoned buildings

electric lights, and rain

 

i came through tunnels

i surfed the channels

to see, your face

 

i came through rainbows

out of the city

to find, my place

 

just to be

by you, so true

 

chorus:

just 2 see you

just 2 be with you

it’s true

 

because i love you

i really love you

i do

suns #1,2,3

my three
suns
gravitational
pull

lets me love them
love them
full

they move me
from what any
measure

i cry
ice fields
encircle
belly

i want the best
empathic
jelly

light the way
my midnight blue
baby boy sun #1

centrifugal devils
chasing sun #2
leave him be!
i beseech you

the third is galaxies
away

come home
my sweets
each night
i pray
