Don’t Tazze me Bro!

Old man smoking a cigarette

Right before where I should be

I crawled to the big and shiny

Upload me down

Engulfed in the pleasure of purchase

Instantaneous buy in

Wrapped in my super protective ego

Born brand loyal

Filtering the stop-motion of a side-way review

It starts with that crazy mind fuck shit

No chance for reconciliation

How did I get here?

Don’t tazze bro

Upper Sandusky looked just like Lower Sandusky

We drove through anyway

The trees fell and the rain danced across the windshield

I turned the wipers on low

She marvels at the birds

The geese are flying the wrong way

A hawk on her shoulder telling her secrets

The gas station takes plastic

Driving

Digital nonrepresentational abstract art

Not welcome and annoying adverts below. I neither support nor endorse the products listed.


Ditch

Mud and rust covered the sign.

The black, raised lettering almost legible, revealed the word.

Return

Rage for Life

sunshine

I see you; caring for and helping. I feel you when you think no one does.

This is a cheer for you.

As you know

Radicalism and intolerance are antithesis to life

Killing is the most absurd form of defense and protest

Wiping out a life is wiping out our future

There is a loss of ideas and discoveries. There is a loss of love, family and companion. A loss that cannot be quantified, it can only be known personally. All of us know we’ve lost something.

There is work to do.

Living to help others is the only possible reason to live.

Nuance is dead.

It died the first day mtv aired. Though we love our hyper-reality we lose our intimacy.

Our deep dive into technological oblivion brought us here. And I love it.

Just say it clean. Just say it clean.

We live in the best of times. Who could have imagined there would be all of this? Fortunately human nature is somewhere south of perfection. We require struggle. We need adversity.

Go ahead on and try. Go ahead on and fail. Please make mistakes so we can all learn.

It’s time for in your face camaraderie.

Strength is found in good will.

If you need to win you can win through love. Winning is not the goal.

The concept of winning should be left to race car drivers and the like.

Humans succeed through love. We discover through hardship.

Go ahead on and share.

We are together.

The struggle may be hard, lonely and at times unbearable but the payoff is divine.

Keep up the good work.

I believe in you.


Negative Twist

Walk over

Step in

Edged side aways

Everybody got a banner

Rolling thunder of text

High Def glamour That runway smells good

Red words in my own voice

High Def profanity Have a taste

Attack pause Attacked

Scroll out

Happy puppy appears -Whew thank you

Back to the mix

Headlines scream of expected atrosities

Paid for. It sells

Everybody so righteous

Me too

Welcome aboard

The righteous we are

Happy to be pissed or

Happy to do the pissing

Happy for your misery and

Happy to be miserable

Happy is our cloud based committee of merry despair

Art Now More Than Ever

p1070677

Art in small doses

Art has a cause

Art leads a cause

A revolution through design

No need for weaponry

No need for an arsenal

Art is an IED

Art wants collateral damage

Express it large

Express it small

Express it with colors all over the wall

Free your music

Free your poetry

Free your pen and brush

Everything can be art

Free all the stuff


What’s left

image-8.jpeg

I am fine to leave behind dust and time

What am I doing?

What have I done?

Consuming is my intimacy

I leave behind charcoal and plastic


Everyone

Peace

And

Clarity


Passive Stairway

living

Morphed language to disarm your truth

Redefined words to leave you naked

Now go away and hide while I dance with your shame

Become a shadow

An occupier of the outskirts

While I glory in authoritative repetition

Pick it up and pass it on

you believe it’s true

The circus mirror skews all perception

Clowns clowning in that direction

Until a broken nail hooks your pant

Clarity for a moment


Welcome to twenty-seventeen Kitten

Evyboty so bizy

Decyphering truncated text

scroll swipe scroll scroll

scores of people bowed

Giraffer-ring

To electronic friends and updates

Tiny little box of plenty

We may not talk to one another

we are one world of the meme

Whosit? my turn

Gots shits to do

and the bus don’t wait

hehe you got that right

ya gotta square I like ta smoke and scroll

Take a few and think of the great new year of 2017

and we do our new social order dance

It this retro yet?

 

2017 Happy New Year
