TELEVISION AND WATCHES 412B


WHERE in flat time,
where marbles turn
to gold, and vampires
fill their canteens
with water or coke.
MEDITATE,
MEDITATE, says the man,
for in this story, there
is hope, and a locket
of your lovers hair.
WHERE in flat time,
where the shades are
pulled down, and the
moon starts to weep,
as the lovers depart.
MEDITATE,
MEDITATE, says the man,
for in this story there
is hope, and a locket of
your lovers hair.

    'And you MEDIATE and MEDITATE to feel the hair you hold
    On your lover's head held and kissing...'

    I like this poem. It gives purpose to stopping the 'flow' of accepted reality, allowing all beings to enjoy life as they see fit! Interesting.
