– it’s raining amish –

Ohio turned into the wetlands one fine spring evening, Ohio turned into a Midwest swamp. I was passing through the north as a means of breathing, passing ’cause clarity is all I want.   Down a narrow road or two came buggies one by one, even folks walking along the road. They used the simplest […]

You got to move on… fight devils on the border. You got to stand strong… retain dignity, maintain order. My good brother Nicholas, the highest of the heroes – although your stance is quite missed, you still rise up from zero.   You got to move out… battle ’til that war is won. Do not stand about… ’til you beat […]

– dead man’s chest –

There’s a hole in your heart, boy, better patch it up! There’s a hole in your heart, and it’s deeper than the sea.

– timing –

ZAP!… POW!… ZAP!… POW!… (ZAP!) You seem to cross my mind… (POW!) and now you’re on my screen. (ZAP!) One jog around my brain… (POW!) then it’s a magazine. Strange occurrences are nothing new… how you just pop up out of the blue. (ZAP!) A simple word connect… (POW!) while minding my world… (ZAP!) then you […]
