Cicadas sing on a summer's day
I sit belly full beneath ancient mesquite
West Texas sun beams where worlds collided
Body and mind spent but sated
I danced forth from potentiality
Lord Buddha, I did your work
I snap my fingers, cough, and depart
"Again and again they will be banished"
My exile a sublime extinguishment
Clockwise swastika seal upon my heart
Displaying medicinal alchemy
Eternity, Happiness, True Self, and Purity
You are all destined to become Buddhas!

My little boat at sea.
____________________________________
Everyone whom ever loved me
has abandoned me in one way or another
and soon left me alone drowning
in my own little sea of shame
and with no one there to save me
I've become so tired of playing these games
where I'm the one left wanting
left desiring
left...

And When you speak my name
all that will come out of your mouth
is shame.

I tried to be everything they wanted me to be,
see I gave it my all, now it's falling apart
and in my head I simply long to be free
What is free anyway? See?
See?
See...

I've never known,
Never had enough to lose to care,
and now it's really enough,

Enough..
Enough...
Enough....

Please,
Please take me away

On your tiny little raft floating on the sea
Untie the rope from the dock and left it drift
and carry me with the winds, and when I land
in lands so far away from myself that I can no longer
find a mirror or thing that evokes a memory,
Maybe I can finally say, I'm free,

Hey, hey, hey hey hey!

I'm finally gonna be free...

Edited the poem quite a bit, so I'm reposting the revised version, sorry I shoulda fully edited before I posted, but I keep finding things I want to change. :reading:

The Chupacabra

Where are you, chupacabra?
In my heart? In my "soul?"
Where did the chupacabra come from?
Where did it go?

Are you sapient, hemovore?
Did the goats leave you wanting more?
Did they ever catch you in South Texas?
Or was it just hoax-as?

Will we ever know who engineered you?
Where you made in the same lab where they made swine flu?
Do you think pot should be legal?
What if you had a pet beagle?

I don't have the answers to these questions.
Stop following me around...
I can't fix your problems.
I just came here for some tobacco and a Powerade.

I'm not antisocial I just have better things to do with my time.
Arguably many people might rather I didn't do those things.
But it isn't their karma for me not to do those things.
I too, am a force of nature.

just writing whatever comes out
to express yourself
without the limitations
of the conscious judging mind
watching every word or action
for censoring
because questionable material
should never be said, even less written
lest society
should look at you funny
and you know what
as I remain getting older
I should care less and less,
but it seems
the older I get
the more censored I become
cause
they are definitely looking at me funny,
funny!
it's really not so funny
to be the one
whos being looked at,
but,
when your the one looking
its pretty hilarious.

Society

They'll burn you at the stake
Laugh, scoff, attack, berate
And attempt to deconstruct you
If you won't go along

Then, one day, their minds change
A wave of energy shifts in the mass
And whatever was attacked before
Is the new normal

I accept that you're all assholes
Who think you're really certain
About, like, lots of stuff
With a bit of humor

You really know what you're talking about
I'll humor each of you on that
And I myself am the most confident being
So I say, knowing full well I'm full of it

You don't know that you don't know
I must be Superman, apparently
I'll Clark Kent for them I guess
Since that tetralemma is too passé

But don't fool yourself
No one who ever made an assessment
Of you or anyone else
Ever knew what they were talking about

Unless they knew how much they didn't know
And perhaps in that knowing
Was a knowing of what they didn't know
And that's why I say these prayers.
