so lately

.

get more closer here

to feeling pulses pulsing

touched each other gentle

tasty ground about

.

 .

breathe more deeper deeply

swim beneath the tall trees

eating rainbow clouds up

in you ‘n’ this ‘n’ that

.

a slippery wetness

a dirty earth-ness

a cleansing thirst-ness

of air and spirit fullness

 .

we are fools and idiots

and lunatics and mad people

you and I

that we may do well to deny

.

as i jump at the chance

although there is none

to chatter insanely with thee

face to face to face to face

.

 .

your ear

your mouth

your eye

your heart to start

.

when dancing and prancing

below the sandy meadows

where loam-filled worms

cast the soil and sand

.

for the greenwood

to the fair

for our home

the sea and all these ‘ologies

.

 .

so mole me over more

and time and time and time

will willfully aspire

to inspire to this end

.

we have no gas or oil

we have but sticks and stones

we have light and fire

we have the power now

.

to let us fly like birds while we can

and spin fine filament in memory (lest we forget)

for futures not yet set in stone

upon which to build our dreams
