Blue - R.E.M.

Yellow circus left the stakes a broken ropes world's useless mug

The ties that bind

Ha ha

I can be bad poet

Street poet

Sh*t poet

Kind poet too




Almost 4am

Halloween night

Had enough to drink to make my own party


All my fellow writers in half costume, half asleep


Half silly, gone to seed

I don't mark my time with dates, holidays

Faded wisdom, locked karma holders




I am made by my times

I am a creation of now

Shaken with the cracks and crevices

I'm not giving up easy

I will not fold

I don't have much

But what I have is gold


I saw your face


I sing in platinum

I dress in brass

I eat in zinc

Let it pass

Compare a toast

I like that

I understand courage

I still roll with the shout of a character

I was married to today

I try to see outside myself

I understand the eyes

Excuse all the highs


I am sorry

Ha ha


I like you, love you, every coast of you

I've seen your eddies and tides

And hurricanes and cyclones

Low ebb tide and high, full moon

Up close and distant

I read you

Look, the sky, the sea

The ocean, the sun, the moon

Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue

Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue


Naked and blue


Breathing with you


Touch. Change. Shift. Allow air

Window open. Drift. Drift away. Into now.


I want Whitman proud

Patti Lee proud


My brothers proud

My sisters proud

I want me

I want it all

I want sensational



This is my time and I am thrilled to be alive

Living. Blessed


I understand


Twentieth century

Collapse Into Now


Cinderella boy


You've lost your shoe


Cinderella boy


Your coach awaits


A sun makes shadows


All over your face


As you sit


Naked and blue


Into me


The sky


The sky


The sky


The sky


The sky


The sky


The sky
