Waiting At the Train Station

I am in a dreamerís paradise, waiting at the train station
With some unknown destination. Maybe I will meet my
Lover halfway around the world and closer to the moon
On the way out of this dead end place. It is like a vacation
And place where no one knows my name or errant tears I
Cried as I escape from complete strangers. The light strewn
All over my face and I am left here waiting for what? A one
Way ticket or an excuse? Maybe I am no longer on the run.

Circumlocutions

Iím lying. Iím a lion. The domain † †  
of a circular way out. A moon†††††† †  
is behind me. The rest of the field†††††† †  
is domesticated.†††††† †  
††††† † † †
Somewhere, the bitumen complies†††††† †  
the sole, then goes home with it,†††††† †  
anything to get away from the motion†††††† †  
sickness of the ocean. Itís a bit loco†††††† †  
††††† † † †
and clingy,†††††† †  
the persnickety bedaub,††† † † †  
the way we go on,†††††† †  
the oil rig like a planet††† † † †  
††††† † † †
off the beach. Along the shore,††† †  
the same escaped mote of tar†††††† †  
the size of a plate you can moor from.†††††† †  
It has a rainbow sheen bite on offer†††††† †  
††††† † † †
with lips the men like: dark slash adorable. † †  
It seems a blackhole would look like this, † † †  
slow rising spumes, not popping, faces† †  
multiplied- it wants to keep all of us. It sucks † †  
†† †
the time out of travel. Iíll book a cave to breathe†††††† †  
together, but this time,†††††† †  
itíll be an aquarium,†††††† †  
this time, itíll be a vacuum. But only if youíre going†††††† †  
††††† † † †
to be here on time. These†††††† †  
microaggressions†††††† †  
are conic, me at one†††††† †  
and the station at another.†††††† †  
††††† † † †
Thereís no soil here to count on†††††† †  
yet Iím lying in wait. Orionís near-by†††††† †  
with a cure, the sum of suns are here†††††† †  
to curry our favor, or mine at least†††††† †  
††††† † † †
since youíre still on the sonic, something † † †  
so fast it left behind a signature.†††††† †  
The minute you arrive†††††† †  
will incur a tint of rum, the belt†††††† †  
††††† † † †
of sixty seconds means nothing here.†††††† †  
It'll be frozen in amber that drips drunk†††††† †  
and ancient down the icon†††††† †  
between automatic and platform.††† †  
††††† † † †
Will we lick each other†††††† †  
until our centers resemble†††††† †  
a parable of the safari city?†††††† †  
Pits spit and beans talk.†††††† †  
††††† † † †
Plains and notions. Needless,†††††† †  
you were rooted somewhere†††††† †  
between Penn Station and locust warnings. You††† † † †  
ordered coffee and laid the lip print angle †  
†† †
towards the window. Circumspect rituals †  
of betting men. You stir, you circus, †  
you current locomotion mourning the sunsets †  
because there is sunrise on the ruins.

False Sound Approaching

In hopes again.
Whatís daydreamed will surface sometime.
Dressed up to the mirrors approval.
Itís only me that should matter to myself.
Future visions of tomorrow at times rush the moments of right now.
Constant expectations have butterflies in the stomach aggravated.
Moments waiting quietly bring peace amongst everything that must be done.
As long as the lights are shining I know itís on its way here.
Finally when itís arrived stress has subsided into a healing calm.

Paradise Express

ATTENTION SINNERS;
It's your last chance to catch
A ride on the Paradise Express!
There's plenty of room left
In luxurious first class

No need to worry that
A Saint will take your seat
For the archangel Raphael
Sent the self righteous
On an elevator straight to Hell!

Limitless

‍‍
‍Take me anywhere  
beyond where the known  
is etched in our hearts
I want to feel the oncoming adventure
deep inside my veins
and blow a kiss goodbye  
to the world that was  
 
Don't you know tomorrow
is weightless in its endless wonder
don't let yesterday hold us down  
in mirror image retribution
let's smash the glass  
of what we'd become  
if we stayed on this platform  
waiting for better  
 
If they say life is what we make it
I'd rather live it with you drifting among the stars  
than with my feet pinned to the ground
in dreamless solidarity
 
So take me anywhere  
beyond where the known  
is etched in our hearts
I want to feel the oncoming adventure
deep inside my veins
on the 8:20 train to anywhere but here

Re: Tardiness

Well, well, well itís finally here
Isnít this just great
 
Curse you space public transport
Now Iím gonna be late
 
Iíve got an important meeting
Over in star system 9
 
They can put a train on the moon
But they canít make it run on fuckiní time!

The 8:20 to Dreamville

Take the 8:20 to Dreamville,
To where possibilities never cease,
Itís a nonstop journey of adventure,
Itís where youíll find inner peace.
Youíll be able to see all the wonders,
That are so beautifully designed,
Board the train to another plane,
Of both the heart and the mind.
And the ticket price for this epic ride?
Knowing who you really are inside,
Striving to be your best above the rest,
Applying all youíve learned and tried.
So come aboard the 8:20 and see,
The marvels the universe can give,
This train ride is out of this world,
Go on the trip of lifetime and live!
