THE FOOLS


falling into a deep love
for no real good reason
outside of your car in the rain
familiar faces in the crowd
wherever you might be...
they are

inside a cloud in a building
under the black earth in a train
on the ocean drinking and smiling
opening up a convenience store
putting on socks in the morning
like a ghost

living alone 
in a garden
with the lord
asleep or working 
on a trailer for a movie
hoping for a miracle

reading books
someone else wrote
paraphrasing they're
favorite passages
writing poems
like this

"Well on the way,
Head in a cloud,
The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud...

And he never listens to them,
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like him,

The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round.

Round and round and round."

"John Lennon" ;)

There's no lord, but everything else is true.

I missed seeing you last night at the Saxon,I had to travel for work; but very much enjoyed The World Exploded Into Love at Shades on Sunday.
