Sweetwater staying true to the original characters in The Biker Chronicles. Try adapting an audio recording to film when you went into the recording studio some twenty years ago when Sweetwater did! Things have changed! Much! Different wars but the whores never change! My dilemma on a particular character named the Vision Jammer has prompted me to cast three different men for the role incorporating three generations. Sixty-five is the common age for living Viet Nam veterans, some well into their seventies and eighties, many of the older Viet Nam vets have passed on. So today's Viet Nam vets are from the 60-ish group, the Viet Nam war ending in 1975, 38 years ago. So, what we have is an older character cast for the Vision Jammer and Country Music Star Toby Keith cast as Jammer Jr. in his forties, staying close with Keith's age, and a young Jammer Jr. casting an 18-year old man. The film script will be finished at the end of the month on to film! Interesting adaptation! —Sage Sweetwater, original recording artist of The Biker Chronicles adapted to film by Sage Sweetwater

Different War But the Whores Never Change

viet nam
delivers a
heavy kick the
weight of the shrapnel
imbedded in his right leg
in nam the vision jammer existed
from self-teachings on the power of
fantasy and illusion bats flew circles
above the vision jammer as he rode the
moonlit asphalt hard and fast

it kept
him alive
and delivered
him home safe but
not sound no vet ever
came home sound

war fragment
reminiscence collectively
floated on top of what was
left of gray matter

visions of
a night-wandering
seductress danced nude
on a black-and-white tiled
checkerboard floor as shiny
as the gold hoops piercing her

he throttled
down and the shovelhead
ceased the euphoric thunder
the nicotine tasted sweeter than
pralines but when the vision jammer
drank whiskey all things tasted sweeter
especially the flesh of a hot woman

his war-stained
hands pulled the
red baron's over his
inflamed eyes and he
snugged  the stars and stripes
bandana around his scarred forehead
not about to lose a piece of America again

the asphalt
and moon turned red
castle whores motioned
to him from outside castle

unmistakable obscenities
echoed throughout whoreland
their soliciting voices sounded
relentless like the voice of his
platoon sergeant john darrius kalitzy
jd for short

a thumbs up
sign was all he
cared to offer out
of appreciation to their
bribe of white powder he
politely eased the throttle
and watched the moon reflect on
their red mirrors

the snow lines
dissipated into
their racy bloodstreams
he smiled and took his left
hand off the grip plugging a
nostril as if he were indulging
with these perfumed whore babies
and to his surprise one tossed down
a vial of snow and shouted from the
powder slopes above "One for the road!"

the vision jammer
didn't do powder but
then again he didn't do
war until it was assigned
to him

he thought
cocaine paralleled
with war just different
lines were used to fight the

Much truth expressed here. JMD

For one who was made part of the madness, this is a grand treatise to the insanity not of war, but of the underlying madness that precedes war. Would that we might once again embrace the philosopher king...ah, a possibility for sanity.

This is brilliant, Sage. In your last few poems your use of imagery has been up to its usual high standard, but you seem to have kicked it up a notch in that to me they are put together in such a way as to make it much eaaier to see what you are trying to say. But then, what do I know???? I'm a guy, and old to boot.

This stanza should be prominently displayed in every American Lefgion and VFW in the country. It is so spot on!
