TO HOBO BOB...


Ma Vodka Bottle
by "OBSIDIAN!!!" [Expcerp from "Zen is Now" c. 1992]



As long as it doesn't show
and as long as it doesn't fall out
i can endure the humiliation
of human dignity

As long as i don't slurp
when i draw
and as long as it doesn't
slip from my paw
when i hit the floor
i can enjoy the brief illusion
of serenity

As long as i don't run outta bills
and as long as i
can still make my way
to the liquor store up the hill
i aint gotta a’ member 'bout
my loneliness

As long as i can just
…keep it coming
THE HELL WITH THE NUMBING!
yeah…and the dumbing
i can have the thrill of
being real
and get to feel
my one and only-ness!
…Whoooh!!!

P.S. Sorry guys . . . I meant to put a "Y" in front of the "our" it was an honest mistake.

Sincerely again, The Desert

Why - when we have the gift of feeeling our emotions - its a beautiful thing - even when it hurts

eye think the beauty of feeling emotions is a sacred thing, that brings us closer to the creator. Why becuase at these moments we are in a private ectasy...like the creator was when creating the universe...that's my reflection.[sorry for the late reply]
