stupid simple mind

14 Dec
there's a buzzing in my head
tiny words
small words
words causing trouble and confusion
and violent revolution


there are words in my head
i keep hearing
this ringing
hearing
words bouncing
around
telling stories and lies
and painting pictures i'd rather not see


dancing and displaying
the quintessence of life
and laughter
and love ever ending
amen and good-night
here comes the thunder
here comes the nightmare
elephants chase down cobblestone
pathways
tap shoes clicking and clacking
and clacking and clicking


and these miserable words
fragments of institutional abominations
i
have
nothing
i am nothing
but a sentence
a comment
a thumbs-up
or like


you have mail!


yeah i remember
yeah i'm not so old
yeah i have memories
and reflections
migratory birds pass overhead
ants continue to march up hills in single file


and this
buzz
buzz
buzzing
interminable echoes shatter
(my brains been splattered)


i can't turn down the noise
i can't face down the fear
i can't complete
this
thing
i
have
begun


and you...
yeah you
look at me
click clack
elephants, elephants
look
at ...CLICK CLACK...me
and i can bear the gaze
of those who dream of walled fortresses
and convicts
and exclusionary politics
kill the elephant
kill the donkey
kill the last great white warrior standing on a hill


i keep my guns handy
because sometimes words
tiny tiny
words
are too much
for your stupid simple mind
