Same same, no difference

Forever fucked,
perpetually trapped.
This island will be the death of me
or at least my sanity.
There’s no escaping
this prison we call mind,
no saving grace.
I will forever be
a mediocrity.

No class act

All the world might be a stage,
but that doesn’t mean you have to play.
I’ll watch from the wing,
while you lot carry on.
I can never remember the lines,
anyway.

S/C Tenerife, take me home

Posted in Uncategorized on December 12, 2014 by rawbacon

This place confuses me,
like america,
but with less stress.
This place delights me,
like america,
only less intensely.
Island of Rainbows,
what a better place
to finally let go
of my mind.

Nice Exile

The nicest place
in all of S/C
is Rambla de Franco..
ending in a beautiful park
with the weirdest fountain.
Voluptuous nudes,
bearing empty-eyed witness
to the eternal dance of
the pigeons.
It’s hard to imagine
anyone living here
to want power & pain.
It’s hard to imagine anything,
life’s too good.

Recharging

Humans
are solar powered,
it’s that simple.
Hot & bright,
no worries.
Sleeping on a bench,
in the park,
in the sunshine,
does it get better..?
Her, sharing it,
would be nice,
but life’s easier
with low expectations.

To a premature cynic

One day you’ll walk beneath an alien sun,
that’s your birthright.
We’ve traveled far to be here,
through pestilence, war & sadness,
just so I can say this:
You will know eternity, child.
It’s not going to be an easy ride,
change never is,
but get through it
and the universe is your oyster
or any mollusks you desire.
The future is coming,
whether you’re looking or not,
but you can only steer it,
if you face it
with open eyes
and open mind.

Empty discos are sad

Too old for this shit,
but it needs doing.
No way to get a girlfriend,
without some sacrifice.
But goddamn I’m too old
for this shit.
Better be worth it.
