October Girl Found Poem and Friday Playlist

October Girl Song Lyric Found Poem

Head in the clouds,
but my gravity centered

So many moons that we have seen
Stumbling back next to me

A wonderful part of the mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone

But rock on completely with some brand new components

I’ll be Nina Simone

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems

Got a moon above me

And sometimes I don’t got a filter

Many times I’ve wondered how much there is to know

But I can’t live forever,I can’t always be
One day I’ll be sand on a beach by a sea

Love goes on forever

Ain’t it good to be alive –

You gotta keep the fire burning, in you little child.

A perfect state requires great control -while they hang us high on
bloodstained crosses.

Brain Wash.

Headline drama is bullets over flagpoles –
Tossed-out journals of a dying form.
Poetry has lost its flavor.

Slice of life.

Enlightenment hits you in the most inconvenient places –
Gear up for the new product of
what can we duplicate next!

Market Value.

Primetime culture is bottled up in pill containers –
Self-help our vanity
while superheroes invade the theaters.

Feast of Fools.

Ink has lost its fashion –
we need visual fornication,
graphic eyesight moving, revolving, getting closer to the sun.

All-in-One Convenience.

LP’s have the best nostalgic tone –
and train rides remind us of temperance,
but patience isn’t fast enough for me!

Upgrade your devices.

Courtesy is oppressive
and humor is exclusive.
Why do we buy anything if it can always be upgraded?

I Heart: Friday Playlist


I Heart

(A Song Lyric Found Poem)

I was completely not me
But baby I’m coming clean.

And if I get things wrong

You know that I’m falling
And I don’t know what to say.

Darling you’re with me, always around me.

You’re my muse,
my worst distraction, my rhythm and blues.

I want a little sweetness
down in my soul.

Love is a feeling,

I’ll keep on carryin’ on,

it’s the beat that my heart skips when I’m with you.

Words don’t ever seem to come out right

I’m trying not to make a sound
Cause I’ll be found out somehow

All this love we feel
Needs no conversation.

Talking about heart and soul –

You don’t really wanna know

An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look… see.

You and me.

reconciling with the cosmos (A Found Poem of Song Lyrics)

I hear the sound of a gentle word

Spacing, zoning, talkin on the phone and –

Trying to catch your heart
Is like trying to catch a star

But I’m the luckiest by far

I keep falling over, I keep passing out when I see a face like you

Don’t look away, when there’s nothing there

Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes

Things like that drive me
out of my mind

Feet they hardly touch the ground

Toe to toe
Dancing very close
Barely breathing
Almost comatose

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns

Feel it feel it
Feel the vibration
