"The Northern California Lady"

Northern California lady-

Illicit chemicals-

She couldn't say, "No."

Which almost, or nearly so-

Crap- I don't know...

But they do make her think she can see things-

They make her think she can be things-

Like a bird in the sky...

Makes her climb up a water tower way up high-

And once up there-

She shouts to everyone down below:

"Hey, look at me everybody-"

"I can fly!"

"I can fly!"

And she does try:



And ker-splat!!!!

And that's the end of that!

"Hip, Or Genteel?"

Is she hip, or genteel?

From an upper-crust family-
A member of the local gentry,
Who's just decided
She wants to ramble around with me?

Have some fun,
That she never has had-

A kind of
Poor little rich girl-
And isn't it just so sad?

Though it's more likely,
That she just wants to be bad-

Her own warped way
Of punishing her family,
For giving her
Everything she ever wanted-

A room
Full of high-priced junk,
That has left her feeling
Nothing but haunted:

So is she hip, or genteel?

Wanting to see
What it's like
On the wrong side
Of the tracks-

Find herself
Among the working class....

"If I -"

If I purport to be
Part of this reality:

There is a possibility
That what I say is true.

But sometimes it seems
Nothing more than a dream!

A masquerade!

Oh, nothing more than an attitude!

Until it reaches a point:

Where it all simply tumbles back down to-

Just like everyone-

Just like you-

A search for a clue!

"These Visions"

My thoughts and dreams-

These visions!

They're a blend-

And a brew!

The philosophy that comes shimmering:

Longed for and felt impending-

The philosophy that is you!

As it was before we even met-

I sensed you like a prophesy:

And I also knew immediately-

That you would love me too!

"The Kingdom Of Pauperdom"

The kingdom of pauperdom-

And it doesn't matter
If you talk about revolution
In your destitution:

You're lost in your necessitous-

Everything's something strange:

Though a penny
Found upon the sidewalk
Is still always a plus-

Even when considering
All the other things
You're very much in need of:

Like food and shelter-


And love.
