Ordinary World - Simon Le Bon/ Duran Duran

Image
Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue,
Thought I heard you talking softly.
I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio,
Still I can't escape the ghost of you.
What has happened to it all?
crazy some would say.
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away




But I won't cry for yesterday, there's an ordinary world,
Somehow I have to find.
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
I will learn to survive.




Passion or coincidence once prompted you to say:
Pride will tear us both apart.
Well now pride's gone out the window, cross the rooftops, run away,
Left me in the vacuum of my heart.
What is happening to me?
crazy some would say.
Where is my friend when I need you most?
Gone away





But I won't cry for yesterday, there's an ordinary world,
Somehow I have to find.
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
I will learn to survive.




Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and greed.
Fear today, forgot tomorrow... ooh
Here beside the news of hol…

The Future of the Internet (And How You Can Stop It)

I have a garage
A workshop

It was once filled with water
and mold grows on everything
but like good marriages
it is built now on what isn't
as well as what is


I have a few things I've made
and things I've invented

I have a white board
and a surf board
and a skate board

I surf there
and try to invent things
there are moments where I can focus
on things
But mostly I'm just bored


I spend time
on the internet
most of which I do not
live to regret

I learn
and travel
and feel as if I am somewhere else

I sit still
and grow fat
and soft

My eyes grow weak
I pulse through the sky
with dark angels in flight
across a godless ocean
I adapt
in profound ways


I take time out
to work with a switch
that seems never to die
and make it work better
and connect everything in my backyard
to the front
and wireless to the side
and out to the car
and to my bike
and to connect in other ways

I will watch out
for people who wear the internet on their eyes
and in their phone
and keep it so close

A Riddle , For Father's Day.

Armored scales never a-clinking
never breathing always drinking

My color of skin
the same as that within
that which has no hinge,
nor key or lid
yet inside golden treasure hid

I come not from
not random chemical
but like a comet to the earth
Knowing well that when I was born
I would need to feed

And one day
I will be saved
from darkness
and basketball

And live to retire
in a clear plastic bowl

For the day at last I abandon my Goal
My goal will be achieved.


What Am I?

Pasteurization

Some say the world shall end in fire
others say ice

But I have seen the end of the world in desire
and I have seen the beginning of the world in the eye
of a bird
before it was killed

I have heard the pure intentions juxtaposed
between the sharpened claws of a cat
who leapt silently and fell from the world

I saw the moment the air opened wide
and let him in

I heard the poetry of the unerring strike
Its effeciency
The deadly allure of life within uncertainty

The bird thought it could run away
but like the cat
who would go hungry

It was taking a chance

I saw the world fall away
and the beautiful colors fade

The cat takes the head
and like kittens who must be led
outside
and away
from litter
and chairs
and toys filled with catnip

So we can be led
to greatness

Or cold silence.

Imagine Dragons

There in the mist
just before the dawn
we remember the hiss
the sound of the dragon
deep within our bones


It shocks us back to the living
and gives us sense
to fight together
and make a stand

Dragons can be confused
and they don't know what they're hitting
They burn their food
torn in two
Their approach is never subtle


They do not have opposable thumbs
and cannot build bridges
Their armor is not always perfect
Gold can draw their attention

A dragon knows what from its hoard
exactly would be missing

But all that glitters is not gold
Speak Friend and Enter

Tearesea' hu' po 7 meter

I don't care about Hawaii
I've got Tahiti.

I'm a cold ass honky.

I've got it all .
Under.
Control.

Check it out. Three people
That dress up and clean my house.

I've got it all.
Knot agreed juries during

Gnaw Tiffany Mouse

I know the pieces fit. Because I watched them fall
Square, fundamental
Catching an edge and over

The light I find and simple division
carrying me forward through to the end

Tweeze denied beef worker Isthmus
This talking swear unbided Gemini wit cairn

Onward through the storm
Buddy herding explain air hedge rowboat design
Grit your teeth
Keep a stiff upper lip

Move on and through
and onto
a sense
of

Compassion


To survive
After all

7 meters is alot of wave
