Of Prophets and Swindled Trees
re. what the gypsy said ...
sometimes right, sometimes just
another path, another lesson:
the moss-laced branches, twisting
gently, pointing here and there
to this or that connection:
their information is valid, like this
communication from plants, from
nature through molecular media:
telling and showing a greater connection
of all, even the parts not visible
in this or that scene, remember:
now, when even the ice-wracked
scrubby trees are bowed down and bound
into the snow-heavy ground:
with a stark still beauty in the clear
passing light and sky-rippling black
pools of water, knowing:
that all paths turn back to the one
round wholeness, all scattered and wound
again into a whirling wonder

Bass Nectar Review
Raw power replaced finesse at times, but it wasn't all jump 'n pump. The audience cheered as loud when the beats were sick and twisted. The opening chords, if you could call them that, shook the floorboards and the air itself, never mind all the cells of the seven chakras at least …
Towards the end the drunk young guys outnumbered the gyrating young girlies by about 2 to 1, and you contacted sticky flesh from every direction. The intimacies grew in fervor while the layers peeled away. We were almost throbbing as one.
You said hello to the few hard-core celebrants you'd met on Friday at the Sunset Room, but there wasn't room for many words in that space of mega-vibrations, rippling whatever parts of your clothing weren't by now stuck to your own flesh or someone else's, or lying in a heap in a forgotten corner of the room, over by where you set the last third of your grapefruit juice before the staff removed it in a likely ploy to get you to buy another.
They say the ticket prices are so high there ($27) because everyone's on E and not buying alcohol. What do you expect from the T-generation? Sex, drugs, r&r. Just like yer own yout'. Walking past the high school last week just after the bell, your faithful snitch overheard two snatches of conversation: "… the muscles of her vagina …" and "… sixty hits of acid." The third would-be conversation was replaced by a guy (or was it a girl?) with earphones plugged in, supplying the rock.
Where was I? Oh, right: think Rock n' Roll on Steroids … Big Beat, Sick and Twisted … Way Below the Baseline.
