two plastic horses touching noses below
the white paper mittens tied together with green yarn,
hanging on the corner of a photo
of a bridge over a stream in central park,
a glass layer reflection of myself
on the water in the park,
behind and in front of the horses,
not as white as the mittens
or as black as the shadows under the bridges...

I wont play any more this silly game.

It is better to close this forum and
to stop with all your lies.

Without the lies there would be no truth.

For ANNA
The times they are a changeing or so I'm told,
But there is that that never grows old,
The lies never touch it and it's truth you can never behold,
Its love embraces all there is nothing it will scold,
And its beauty oh its beauty is so very bold.

Love
Many Of One

Hope I'm not being too bold.

these ideas are like a leaning tower of assumptions,
and so i find them humorously defying the gravity of meaning...

meaningless,
but that is like the endless cascading thoughts
pouring out from the mind...

anna usually fishes for ideas from the still pond upstream,
but in this post we get whitewater below the falls...
but it's still all water,

this water passes through us, always /
or passes by us, always /
or flows around us always /

OR

we are rowing merrily upon it...always /
Laughing

Lie after lie
The pond is full with lies
Enough.

Anna can't choose
whether to play or not. Cool

And we can't stop all our lies.

All these stories are lies,
but this that knows this is not.

i believed i was something special then,
i even argued for it,
my efforts closed the ears of others,
one by one
they turned away and disregarded me as the
fool i was becoming,
and finally,
i was sent away,
beaten and humiliated Laughing
and that's like tumbling into an unseen well,
a black tunnel
with a gravity and force that feels like a direction,
but it's just falling, pure and simple,
and the water reached up to meet me
and slow the fall until i was floating in
the one water, the beginingless pool
of potential,
cool and dark and quiet and dense,
lost in it it, consumed by it,
dissovled into it to the point where there
is no distinction,
is this emptiness? this feeling of nobodiness?
those are just names that mean nothing
no way back out the way i came in,
so there's nothing left
to do
but sink all the way down to the bottom,
and that's where the source of the spring
connects all the waters of the worlds,
i could return on a geyser,
or fall as rain then reassemble,
or pop up in the middle of a great ocean,
it's all the same,
the ocean's old currents
eventually brush up against some shore
someplace,
it only requires that i reach out a hand and
take hold,
or keep drifting,
and i am surprised by my apparent inability to act or decide,
so maybe part of the me(s)
drift off
and othrs climb back out on land,
the part(s) drawn towards another
inevitable evolution,
and it's a dawn in this new world,
for all of us,
we have a new sense of mastery welling up,
knowing all our old predators
are lost at sea....
