No Bus

Poem
More to ponder

Consider the possibility that to go deeper starts
With letting go of all that you know

All that you think you know

All that you believe you do not know.

Can you step off the bus you are on
And not look for another one?

Loosing Control

The #4 bus
Sparked rumbled and shook,
The purple dots I ate were my lifeline
was on the Spaceship enterprise
The driver looked oddly like George Bush
next to me the ghost of Hunter Thompson,
Ken Kesey, Tim Leary and Jerry Garcia
they were deep in conversation
i searched for Allen Ginsberg
