- Rhyme of a Rain Baptist -

I mean who knows the difference between here & there ? So shut the blues, no one stoops for pennies anymore and Kerouac's America is long gone with no one left to remember the loss.

Nobody to understand the endings.

Rasputin said to Prince Yusupov -
"Blowing on a black jug brought me here, you bad boy. Check it out"

reasons for statement:
linked to old family legends -
"we all came from somewhere"

and

"we are the language of the house"

(taken from several things
Jack Kerouac is purported to have said
at one time or another
but not quite in this form or sequence)

... but it's true - we have all lived / living in houses and expect to go on doing so until we don't live here at all -

Cracked me up ! Yeah, some days I can get as tired of the brain as it does of me - trails across the gravel - last night I wiped my whole storage file for Zuihitsu in a flat nanosecond - gone gone gone - no canned meat here this is straight drapes right off the rack and good damn the 21st century zip zip & gone - had a friend once who took off and went to Plano, Texas - I don't know where that is though I could look it up and I don't know if he is still alive - he joined the Navy with me on the "buddy plan" haha haha - so many things ya just don't know - last I heard he drove a forklift off the deck of an aircraft carrier - his naval career came to a close then & there - Navy frowns on that sort of thing -

God, I could make a list ...

Most of the jazz I listen to, the men & woman who blew it or sang it or shot it into their arms are long dead and it's coming up on midnight & I'm sitting here on Tug Hill maybe waiting for a revelation or maybe for the rain to stop -

Existential - existentialist - I like that word over it's meaning, it sounds like a samurai sword in flight, maybe it's all them vowels, it's packed with them - the swing begins and the air doesn't even have time to scream
That stone in the rain is very existential.
The rain that falls on it turning it dark
is existential too.
Toads are small brown samurai swords sporting warts.

We can name anything we want and there is nothing
that
is not
a poem - if someone is shot the bullet is a poem, the gun it came from a poem the finger that pulled the trigger a poem - if the person shot dies from the wound that death is a poem -
and the funeral afterwards -

The two halves of my brain have been having a torrid affair for decades - I can always tell when they are using my skull for a room because statements like this will occur to me:
- "The help rifle has been curved, punish the thing !"

One day last week they were really having themselves a session and this is what I got:
- "Rampant class kid with the damp place machine, noxious bastard playing with enchanted eggs not just a game for women,
pan close to my skin, Honey, be inquisitive than vanish toward the bridge with nine toads of infamous hope !"

I'll meet you there.

Save me a toad.

Ribbit!!!
Someone at work was showing me a video of a chinaman eating whole frogs, needless to say it was quite disgusting......

Existential humor....right!...i think of sarte when that word comes up, also waiting for godot..ionesco was he an existentialist? Philosophy ain't my strong suit....answer? Hell who knows anyway???...now fellini, that's right up my alley...surreal...dreamy...after that I really enjoy samurai flicks...sword of doom..yojimbo...hari kiri....all the zatolchi movies....zulu was amazing too...as was the duelists....the philosophy of kill or be killed...napoleon, now that little sob intrigues me...ww1 flying aces, all that red baron shit...war to end all wars...what a laugh...
Appolinaire died for their sins...franz Marc too...trenches...did I say trenches..a hell of a way to go ...ugh!
