was my middle
name. i used to think you oughta

stir shit up. now i know

anarchy is over

revolution will
occur naturally now and

do not provocate

just because you see a change

before it comes

be the change. educate

peace is a precious


stretched so hard i touched memory

the visions were transverse

mixing with memories until

they were infused

came from some old scratch on

some old disc in my fourteenth vertebra

top of the column down

probably got it playing frisbee

circa 1992

a tree pushed a root up and tripped me

in an old growth forest i

had broken up with my third

best friend

forever wasn’t as long as

i imagined

+ a flash +

they are falling in love
they are working
they are raising the children
from south carolina
to china
the sun looks the same
the moon looks the same
from hong kong to warsaw
they worship the same gods
under different names
drink the same wine
the stars appear
no different
only the moment makes
the diverse feelings arise and fall
beneath the diverse flags
we come and go like
the wind
