“THE HEART APP.!” a poem a.k.a.: “It’s Free!”* a.k.a. “Oh, I Don’t Know About All This Stuff; I Just Try To ‘Deal With It,’ Badly!” a.k.a.: “Another Misinterpreted Message From ‘The Intergalactic Federation of Planets,’ i.e.: Outer Space Folks!” Wednesday: July 10, 2019
Humans! OWN YOUR CRAZINESS! Fall in love!
It’s THE CRAZIEST THING WE’VE EVER HEARD OF!
“I just hope – it NEVER happens to-ME,
For-I-have-MY-DIGNITY!-She’s-my-wife, you see!”**
What’s crazier than LOVE? It’s a “grand compulsion,”
And, once infected, your reasoning suffers expulsion!
Then, Satan (or Jeff, Your Conscience) goes: “What-the-f k’s-going-on-here?”
Your HEART replies: “Have yourself a beer!”
Then, your MIND says: “But I don’t drink!”
“Well, with-Love-you-don’t-have-to!” [The Mind says:] “YOU STINK!”
Well, YES! “LOVE-DOTH-STINK! (pause) but-somehow, you-love-The-Smell!”
“I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF Y O U! I WANNA RETURN TO HELL,
TO-THE-WORLD-OF: RELIGIONS! HOSPITALS! &-POLI-TICS!”
“OK! Bye!” (aside): “I-hope-this-situation-never-sticks!”
Oh, DANG, Gang! (Bang!) We’re in BIG TROUBLE! Are-we Heaven Bound?
Or (O. M. G.) Have-we-arrived? LOOK-WHAT-I’VE-FOUND?
I found-me A-LOVE-LETTER-with-a-photograph – in-a-secluded-drawer,
And I’m pretty-sure I CAN’T-take very-much-of-this-any-more,
BEFORE I LOSE MY BLANKETY-BLANK-MIND,
Sniffing! Sniffing! This pretty girls’ be – – – d!
DISGUSTING! Disgusting, but (pause) SUDDENLY NICE!
I-dunno! It’s-sort-of-like-EGG-nog, with-too-much-sugar-&-spice!
(O. M. G., JEFF has-“lapsed!” Has his mighty, bloody mind collapsed?)
Jeff: “I (pause) yai!-Yai Yai-I-yai-I-yai-I’ve-been HEART–APP’s- ed!”
“HEART APPS ed!”
