Consider This,
We live in a Time
where the Physical
Shadows the Spiritual,
where the State has
replaced the Church,
and Money has become
the Obtainable God.

Consider this,
we live in a World where
Fish are not considered cute,
where you can be born into
any home,
and be of any Sex;
and have any kind of Sex you want
while Dolphins think about it.

Consider this,
we live in a World never cold;
it is like a Tear,
and Tears are never cold.
Tears are always warm,
there are only cold cheeks
for Tears to run down.
A World where Love is my danger,
and I do not care.

Consider now;
I have asked you to do
a great deal of considering
about Three totally different things,
but consider this:
all three are the same.
Consider Life
which is far from a simple thing.
Consider in a World of Modern Technology,
this land of Nuked-out Metropolise's
where the Black Blood has stopped flowing
and the Poets like Dinosaurs
have made the long trek into oblivion.
What would Life be like?
What would the Twenty-First Century
be like through the eyes
of One of the last Poets of America?
It would be 'SO SAD.'
through my Mind's Eye;
it would be:

Eggplant: I marvel in your depth, splashing bits of it at those unsuspecting.

The work will keep you up!

existing as I do
in a world where I am
personally incredibly sarcastic
and yet unable to get the hint
of sarcasism off others
I thank you.

I could be standing at a bus stop
wearing a pink bunny suit,
a purple tutu,
lime green scuba flippers,
a honking big yellow
kitchen wall clock
around my neck,
lobster oven mitts
on my hands,
and a cat in the hat
red and white striped hat;
and if you drove by
slowed down and said
"hey buddy! nice hat!"
I would just smile and wave
and say thank you.

*gee come to think of it
that is what I was wearing today.
and someone did drive by,
slow down and say;
"hey buddy! nice hat!"
hey mxbx muchacho!
Whazz Up!
that's a mighty fine
Bone Wagon you got there
