One of "those" days, cannot seem to write anything worth thinking about...

"Acid is not for every brain .... Only the healthy, happy, wholesome, handsome, hopeful, humorous, high-velocity should seek these experiences. This elitism is totally self-determined. Unless you are self-confident, self-directed, self-selected, please abstain. "
Timothy Leary


Bad Trip…


Took the cube,

He was such a rube,

A sugar & acid mix,

Acted like such a dick…


Examined his hand,

Did not like the band,

Stupidest he was in the land,

Had to lay could not stand…


Bright colors he did see,

He would eventually pay a fee,

Needed to try said he,

He really was just so much debris…


So many trips of the mind,

So many times he did find,

Nothing new in his head,

Went did he where he should not have tread…


Driven into a crazy rage,

Put away for killing the band backstage,

Just another drug-induced rampage,

Still to this day and age,

He is locked away never to see the light beyond his cage,

There he will be till his death does mercifully come from old age…

Alright, Ed... and listen up! When you do your little prefaces about not having anything 'worthwhile' to write, you then seem to dive in head first and emerge with something really sparkling and fab!

The rhyme and rhythm, alone, is worthy of huge applause... (yes, I'm clapping, a woman of my word... ahem!). This has layers, provoking thought, imagination AND, that ever-illusive atmosphere of being near something profound. Great writing, my sweet flower! (smile) katy xox

Ed This is amazing
for one who can not think
of what to write about
I just posted one myself
came to me in the last few minutes
scratched it out. looked good
now is posted.
and all this time I was searching
an empty lot between my ears
for something worthy.
go fish
