Same as it Ever Was

floating through the
Hall of Mystics
living in a dream
within a dream
behind chatoyant eyes
slipping between realities
from planet to planet
star to star
dancing the dance of
a thousand sorrows
and joys
never living in one
reality for too long
so as not to get bored
running from the shadows
on cold nights under
chrome and glass
using regions of the
brain seldom used
feeling like a bad connection
to a whisper in the dark
here there is something
stronger than a hallucination
imagining I’m a changeling
imagining I’m a cyborg
imagining I’m a devil
imagining I’m a god
imagining I’m a poet
imagining I’m a postcard
imagining I’m a candle
imagining I’m crazy
keeping it all inside
loving every minute of it
in a band
in the rain
in my head
playing strange instruments
no one’s ever seen
or heard
it gets weird sometimes
I love weird
once I caught myself dancing
to This Must be the Place by
David Byrne on repeat
while wearing a big strap-on
dildo and carrying a big knife
slashing and fucking the air
to the beat
when things get crazy
all you can do is go with the flow
and jump over the edge
the less we say about it
the better
imagine opening a window
imagine opening a door
imagine opening time
and stepping inside
when you can’t tell
one god from another
no skin color
no creed
no war
time isn’t holding us
time isn’t after us
just pale soulful beings
from different planets
light beings
I can be your guide
you’ll never be alone
in this crazy magick ceremony
called life
in so many different dimensions
same as it ever was
