Fantasies and intentions do not necessarily overlap
Not the same thing and do not be concerned
Twinkling eyes full of mischief showed us the way, and while the lithe dryads gather
mischievous thoughts to their pocketses and thighs, not all of them were of the
weather of lust
In your heart, remember these things:
. . . . . Nine before seven were the ways to Sunday
. . . . . Three types of toe curls were known from the start
. . . . . Elation by connection is one way to know others
. . . . . Do not let friendships fall into disuse

Each small child has a faery guide in addition to the biggest fans
None take care of business in quite the way poets do
Grave insults not appreciated and should be frowned upon
Yet all above the weather was the possibility of open relationships
Clues to the wise and rancor for the enemies
Yet always the chance of reconciliation
Closure is not yet
The dreams gather and network in the parallel city of night across all distances
Do not close the possibility of new deepening and desires among yourselves

This poem written specifically for you!

Unhypnotized

Following the trail of peace
Building good will among men and boys
Becoming diplomats and fighters
Becoming aid workers and good neighbors
Becoming true to ourselves
Unhypnotized by consumer culture
Unhypnotized by the media circus
Unhypnotized by terror and fear
Leaving our old lives behind to find purpose
Leaving our old lives behind to find joy
Dreaming our way to new tomorrows
Dreaming our way to an Earth with true Justice
Realizing in time our successes
Realizing in time what we cannot
Realizing in time there will be struggles
That we may rise in triumph
Becoming in our innate nature truest

The sweeping changes are coming hard
Hard to go all the way down to no cigarettes
Hard to stay occupied all day without beer
Hard not to steal 40 cents to make a beer
Hard the angst and anxiety
Everyday I struggle
Every day I have s few moments of peace
Are there solutions out there beyond this?
Or just more of the same?
Is this addiction?
Is this intractable depression?
Is this just boredom?
Or is this just life, which I am not cut out to cope with?

Diving Into the Endless Fantasy

Silver mirrors reflect
Itemization of currents
A thousand gems on fire
Screaming for light
Burning in the ocean of your ecstacy
Sinking into the unknowable
Creating a new art
Still the chaos
Be broken to the onrushing of emotion
Let it flow through
Create a star, create a supernova
Let your self become the phytoplankton, the caterpillar, the leaf
Let your rigidness dissolve, be not a statue
You fall over the edge, freefalling, neverending
Slip the mask over your face
And you join the unfolding drama, the play
The ghost of Lao Tse greets you,
And offers you inner vision
You take it
And off you go
Floating into the zero-gravity plane of endless life
You blink and it’s over
But you have brought many things back
You set to applying them
To the plane of humans
Success is within reach

Some challenges to overcome

A load of web technologies I’m not motivated enough to learn

The cleaning of this disastrous house

Making an internet dating profile

Haven’t meditated in a month or more

Haven’t exercised in a month or more

Drinking beer before work (although my performance is actually better, I’m sure the managers can smell it)

Catching up with all my untriaged and untyped verses

Getting together a coherent book for the Omnidawn contest

Getting my postcards printed

Getting my business cards printed

Getting some sidewalk chalk

Getting a real job or at least one that isn’t minimum wage

Figuring out where to send those postcards

Building out my personal website more

Using my twitter account

Linking all of my expressive accounts for marketing

Carmichael’s books consignment program

Getting my book or books printed on demand with title on spine

Reading the 4 self publishing books I weaseled Mom into getting me

Waiting for my first paycheck at Domino’s

Promoting those books with my various accounts, contacts, bulletin boards, and other means

Starting a meetup poetry group ($72 for six months if you want to start a group as opposed to just join (free))

Getting a handle on the routines so that this all is doable

Getting a handle on either sleeping well without beer or having money for beer left at 10 every night

Washing a lot of laundry

Clearing away the trashbags

Washing the sheets blankets and pillows

Making clear to my cousin he may not stay more than two months before he moves in

Reliable eating with food I can stand

Not getting 86ed from any more places

Countering the slanders that follow me

Not snorting too many of my antidepressants so I don’t run out before months end

Quitting smoking

Avoiding damage to my heart

Getting a real relationship, or some satisfying part time ones

More real friends

And now I go to see my neighbor who will criticize me for drinking before work

A channel of life pouring through
The grounding effects of a cigarette
The lifting effects of the life energy
Stretching taller than I normally do
Love
Love is my answer
Pulling together my broken pieces into a whole
Offering it to another
Offering myself
Over and over
One day I will meet with success

A channel of life pouring through
The grounding effects of a cigarette
The lifting effects of the life energy
Stretching taller than I normally do
Love
Love is my answer
Pulling together my broken pieces into a whole
Offering it to another
Offering myself
Over and over
One day I will meet with success
