TEXAS COWBOY

“WHEN – THEN – NOW!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Buddha’s Retrospective!” a.k.a.: “Forrest Gump Is Alive & Well – And STUPID As Ever – And So Is EVERYONE Else!” November 4th 2018 SUNDAY

WHEN I was young, cock-sure and gay,

I’d stand! Out-on-The-Corner! and (sometimes) pray!


People would happen by, disturbing me TOO MUCH,

So, I would say: “Wait here” and I’d-go-watch “Starsky-and-Hutch!”*

THEN, I-was-filled – with “vinegar & piss,”

And SEPARATION was The-Thing – the-thing-for-bliss!

The Strategy? [To lose those – with dumb ideas and concerns!]

It WAS – The Key to Happiness! BUT! ISOLATION – BURNS,

Away – this cock-sure attitude, and you-yearn for-“company:”

Yes! Touch-and-Stuff-becomes-critical –

For-your-felicity!

(1) NOW, when I encounter people – here and there,

I invite them: “Come along! IF-you-really-dare!”

And many folks – they’ll follow me around this little town,

And-they-might-say: “You’re BRILLIANT!” Here! (pause) Wear this-orange-ocre-gown,

And tell us stuff – to make us feel better!

And – take away our fear!“ {I just wanna “get-her!”}

“IT” MIGHT MAKE THEM FEEL BETTER – Better for a while,

And some folks, at first, might follow me – for a mile!!

(2) NOW! There’re THOUSANDS! – Many-folks-who-think-I-hold-some-KEY!!

To existence – or enlightenment!!! I’ll say: “DON’T FOLLOW ME;

Follow your OWN-SPECIAL-PATH;

Add it up! Do your own “math,”

And know that The Force – resides within each of you!

You don’t need ME – I AM – a piece of poo!

PLEASE!!! DO-BEGIN – TO LIVE YOUR LIVES IN FAITH AND JOY,

I am – just – a stinky – a stinky – little boy! 🙂 – Yup!
