[Deer Park, August 17,2010]
Moments happen fast up here, flashpanics,
There it is, two, gone, devils’ smiles over
Big Two Hearted country, two eddies sailing
Through cloud bottoms, squealing follow me dude,
Pure joy in flight, the stuff of Da Vinci’s
Fancy back when man was nailed to Earth,
Kings claiming an earthly delight rights, lucre,
Underwritten by Popes’ minions.
Above the bridge daily majesty comes
From Mother Nature’s loins, man just spectates
Or prays (varied brand names for the same product).
Relentless fronts move like musical tunes,
the loop of a player piano built
by others to catch our attention,
perhaps trigger nonlinear thinking.
