Childhood / Mescaline inspired poem about the Desert
    #3488228 - 12/12/04 11:16 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I think this is the best poem I've written so far... I was freezing cold in my apartment, started thinking fondly on my palm desert area experiences over the years, from being a kid there at my grandma's condo to trippin on san pedro in the wilderness :smile:  here it is:

Sandstone dust, wind rippled into even color bands
Three or four scattered rocks, to the right, a dark burrow
A sliver of moon, a cactus

Off to the desert!

NOW, fer chrissake?

You go, so there are
things, heaven & hell
Spiders with eight legs
Green centipedes, tough narrow leaves with brown tips hang down
Levee, never seen one
But I?d like thin films of water on
concrete in the desert reflecting
seven shades of cacti silhouette,
perhaps a scorpion or even a dragon fly would land in the
still water and send ripples outward
glimmer sunlight and the hot moving rays
play across your chest

maybe you could go swim
in a manicured pool with
jacuzzi and manhade lake, with
hungry ducks and mean geese
they call em swans and you
get to dive right in, keep your
eyes closed and dissolve into
the cool sanctuary of modest jello
coating your frame, wash off the
sweat and dirt in a lazy
horizontal spin, image faraway
dreamy worlds brought to you by
the carbon dioxide going up and
oxygen going down
until you can?t stand it any longer

rocket up towards the undulating clear film
and penetrate into that perfect lawn smelling
a faraway lawn mower
crickets and pool machinery, cicadas vibrating frantic
sexual tension into that dry conductive air
fix yourself a champagne and OJ and
point your feet towards that blazing white sun descending slowly
towards those craggy mysto mountains

we?re going there tomorrow to
explore but for now we?ll just drink and soak it in
tonight we?ll cook a big elaborate
dinner and eat together and drink beer and bullshit eachother
then someone will get the bright idea and
we?ll jump in that lake with the geese and sleeping
ducks floating like?well?ducks? and God knows what
else?fuck it, cause its bound to happen, then we?ll
wash off in the brilliant night
pool rippling bluegreen marble lit from the deep end, plastic
crystal beacon for underwater drunks in peace
and we?ll swim and twist and bullshit some more as the
big white moon rises on the other side of the world, painting
the martian peaks across the sky with her own style,
the nocturnal take on things, we?ll pass joints around
that Jacuzzi now and everyone?ll rap about the desert, so
big its finally taken over the whole world until the warmth and comfort
sends us off to sleep, so easy to dissolve into those clean dry white linens
?the fucking desert man, the mountains can wait till tomorrow
