low poem-count for March, due to collaging 5 kitchen cabinet doors during month . . . more art, less poetry, more poetry, less art.

2022.3.6 – Burning dragon’s blood to sweeten air
2022.3.14 – THC content
2022.3.21 – Need endless
2022.3.22 – Some eat
2022.3.24 – Rain drives earthworms

~ ~ ~

Burning dragon’s blood to sweeten air
smoking sage to quiet mind
drinking chamomile to soothe soul
searching inner dark for plot’s arc
looking for script
cameraman
director
suspecting none
yet one happy stumblebum
blessed with 3 unearned sweeties
cat, dog, wife
in luck-filled adventure-fueled
rainbow life of spice

nice

~ ~ ~

THC content
is like IQ
sometimes less is more

Would I still be smoking dope
if I hadn’t gone to HIGH school?

I’m a once-Christian
sloppy ex-Buddhist

One thing Pappy taught me
never piss off the wind

Don’t complain about aging
you either wrinkle, or you rot

Hard to see the magic
when ugly crud accrues

This o so slow slide of dread
into contentment

If a tree falls across a forest
does sap ensue?

My ass knows the answer
but breath asks anyway

We keep darkness away
by creating, cheating
lying

~ ~ ~

Need endless
world small
future TBD

~ ~ ~

Some eat
others get eaten
and round go round we go

The rich feast
while poor fade
to fighting weight

Yet right now
this very moment
it’s a 3-deer day with 5 geese honking

~ ~ ~

Rain drives earthworms
onto asphalt
the birds feast

Faint halfmoon in sky
looks like CGI

27 songs surviving

Sunday, April 3rd, 2022

3 years ago I had a 500-song-past-100-years playlist I was culturally quite happy with . . . unfortunately it didn’t make good shuffle music — I mean, how many times can one enjoy Happy Trails by Roy Rogers and Dale Evans (song #500)?

Since then I’ve deleted all but 27 of them, added more (up to 318 now), and in the process moved 1,606 to my deleted file (which makes a fascinating read).

Here’re the survivors.

001 – Everybody Knows – Leonard Cohen
002 – Everything Is Broken – Bob Dylan
003 – It’s My Way – Buffy Sainte-Marie
004 – Frank Sinatra – Cake
005 – I’m Waiting for the Man – Velvet Underground
006 – Mean Mama Blues – Ernest Tubb
007 – God & the FBI – Janis Ian
008 – Misterioso – Thelonious Monk
009 – Walking in the Rain (album version) – Grace Jones
010 – Run, The Darkness Will Pass – Shabaka and the Ancestors
011 – Desolation Row – Bob Dylan
012 – Epistrophy – Thelonious Monk
013 – Open All Night – Bruce Springsteen
014 – I Feel So Bad – Elvis Presley
015 – Send My Love (To Your New Lover) – I’m With Her w/ Paul Kowert
016 – If Jesus Drove a Motor Home – Jim White & Aimee Mann
017 – Walk Like an Egyptian – The Bangles
018 – Backward Country Boy Blues – Duke Ellington, Mingus, Max Roach
019 – Letter from Abroad – John Cale
020 – For a Ride – John Cale
