She says: “Just MUSH me – I want some HUSH; 😁😁😁😁

“ABIDING WITH AND HIDING FOR P E A C E !” a poem a.k.a.: “Incorruptible Flesh!” August 5, 2018 – first Sunday in August!

She wants PEACE; she wants QUIET!

She wants CALM – “Stop this riot!!”

She-wants-IT-ALL; she wants it NOW –

Leave out the bad!

I ask her: “HOW?”

She says: “Just MUSH me – I want some HUSH;

KIND, LOW & SWEET; Be SLOW, DON’T rush!”

There is a calm, before The Storm;

Or, sometimes – AFTER! can be the norm!

A dual-istic – place have we;

Where shall we go? Dear Trinity?

Oh, Dorothy! Toto! LET’S-RUN-AWAY;

Escape tornadoes –

Every Day?!

But WAIT!

A-tornado!

Comes for you!

IN-EVI-TA-BILITY – for Neo too!!

IF I could fly – and fight The Smiths,

Change colored sky –

DO YOU LIKE MYTHS?

There’re Bible Stories,

Upanishads,

Koran assurance –

Let’s BEAT THE ODDS!

NO! These aren’t odds – they’re more like dreams –

CONSISTENT PEACE!!

Like seamless seams,

Like having cake – And eating too,

LET’S KEEP ON DREAMING – AND-ESCAPE-THIS-VIEW!

(BUT! You-like-the-view – you ooh and ahh; do you like ma? Do you like pa?)

“SHUT OFF THE LIGHTS; TURN ON A. C.!”

This’ll-surely-be, the death of me!

The PEACE! long promised – that passes all,

Understanding!! Is like THIS, Doll:

T O L E T T H E W O R L D – R O L L O F F Y O U R B A C K,

Just like some water! You’ll get “the knack!”

Sweet PEACE is-like:

Some-Water-Rolling!

Still waters? DEEP!

Monsoons? Are tolling!

Be like a duck! Let’s duck; don’t hide!

PEACE COMES; PEACE GOES – WE SHALL ABIDE!

🙂 -to be read AND FORGOTTEN, just like every other poem that gets put in this blog! OR! To be read and remembered! so escape-ism does not become the cornerstone of a miserable life!! and NO! this does NOT mean – activism! It means:

“EASY, ACCEPTING STEPS ON A PITTED SIDEWALK!” The Mystic Poet
