Down lifts up once again. The view through the pines remains cluttered. The rain begins; memories fall like a new emotion. Walking in the open wind, the rain cries and worries. No such thing helps solve the once again.

Trying to change, words kept falling. Breathing hurt. The oceans rolled backwards. All was silent. Moonshine stopped caring. The artist’s etching festered on the wrist... kind of funny. 

So much for promises made. Shattered dreams ran away. Emptiness offered nothing. Softly, the sunrise cried as if the music stopped whenever hope appeared like a child offering affection. 

Far away is insight. Oblivion is remembered. And the view through the pines remains cluttered: blue skies, fat clouds and all dreams passing through the same old song. On the road to somewhere, we try to understand —

 

All we do

All we are

Is yet finished

hey i missed this one, and goddammit it aint my fault , cuz i didnt know about it, cuz you declined to tell me about it!

art and the queen: a most impossible melding, for me, to imagine. i mean: if art ever got the Queen, and the queen overcame her initial mistrust ,

how the fuck would we mere humans fare, in the face of such poetic fury that would come our way, if art finally figured out how to use his gadget,

or the Queen upgraded him! haw.

it is, all, finished, maybe before it began. not in the sense of temporal accomplishments, certainly: for time is the arena for endless progression.

finished in the sense of some Over Mind/soul/Gawd?/ spirit?/ Brahma! / Tao

has already made it good.
