Fool’s Journey For A Master




Seeking greatness

we refuse a mirror

seeking wisdom

we refuse all letters in every word


Seeking understanding of place

our place

in the universe

with the universe

of the universe

we refuse earth




Seeking everything

outside of self

we refuse to believe and blind ourselves to self

A Clairvoyant Crush



Just say that I did admit how I feel about you

say that I said I was interested

I admitted that your mind fascinates me

I acknowledge that your vibrations harmonize with mine

I confessed to constructing conversations just to hear your voice and maybe see you smile


what then


I am too old for you as you are now

it would not be fair to you as I am now

you have so much life to live

so many lessons to learn

on your own

as I did


need to learn

on your own

as I did


without someone tainting it with their own failures

without someone jading it with their own success

without someone crippling you with aged seriousness and subdued patience


what then


We cant date because neither of have any money

lies I tell myself

lies I justify amongst myself

I know you


You’re the type of man that wouldn’t care

we could sit at the bus stop sharing headphones and a chicken wrap

listening to NPR

on our way to go protest

I know you


we could go to the bookstore and discuss

for hours

Kafkaesque minutia and Orwellian grandeur


we could go for long walks and hear

for hours

The Budos band in our chest and step and Fela in our soul and heart


what then


Do you now understand why you deserve better

than poor old me


Do you now understand why I haven’t

why I wont attempt

the beautifully opulent and too young for me

as I am now

that is you


I’ll accept this juvenile awkwardness because it is all that I can have

anything else

anything more

would be selfish

would be unfair

to the vision that is you

Ghosts & Spirits


That’s interesting


one implies a haunting

hair on the back of necks standing on end

unexpected unexplained




down backs

up spines

in the air



in the corner of an eye


That’s interesting


one implies a total take over

encompassing and embodying

an age or art


the essence of a being

the essence of being

the essence


That’s interesting.

In The Hour

That’s life

isn’t it


you said:


“She’s in labor,

any time now.”


She never wanted kids





That’s life

isn’t it


you said:


“He killed himself,


He couldn’t take it anymore.

He missed him too much.”


He never used drugs





That’s life

isn’t it

Learning to walk but not to see


how am I supposed to be something to you

I don’t even know what I am supposed to be to me


first I figure:


I forget

everything I possibly can they said

everything they said about my culture

everything they said about my people

everything they said about my family

everything they said about my parents

everything they said about me


second I figure:


I learn

everything I possibly can

everything possible about my culture

everything possible about my people

everything possible about my family

everything possible about my parents

everything possible about me


Now is when it started

Now is when I see


I see

my self clearly

know my self clearly

understand enough clearly


I was never supposed to be something to you

I was always supposed to be something to me


clearly I see how it was all divided:







The verity in and of creation is art

The verity in and of the universe is art


Art is not separation and division

it is the creative expression of the whole

Art dose not dictate that you hate the flower and love the moon

Art does not dictate that you reason the ocean superior and sky inferior


If you let it


Art teaches individual and mutual appreciation of the two as two

and as one


I don’t need to be something to you

You don’t need to be something to me


Some say it is their plan

Some say it is how they stay in control


we already were something

we already are something

we always will be something


we just needed to see

the beauty of the art that is eachother

the beauty of the art that is you

the beauty of the art that is me.

Too many reasons for things not real

underneath the streetlight as day fades,
supported by the concrete walls.
time and space slow around you.

I remind myself;

“This isn’t really happening,
its just me,
its just part of the crush that has crept upon me.”

I speak
to hear the sound of your voice
to see you redirect your hair
to watch your lips move
to delight in your every intellectual postulation

I remind myself;

“Dial it back
keep it in check
don’t make it weird”

I sprint through all the reasons why it would.

This is a one sided crush:
of the party of the first party
which would be me

“I'm going to get coffee before this thing starts. I’ll talk to you latter.”

underneath the streetlight as night has come
I stand alone on my feet
time and space resume

I remind myself;

“This is just me
this never really happened
if he was interested at all
he would have said,”

“You wanna come too?”

Stars And The Youniverse


Coded meanings

with ancient names and tongues


Symbolism of elements

and self


Symbolism of senses

and self



and all things

come from one

and many



not all

want to be one

not realizing



and all things

already are one
