Get Rid Of The Advertisements

In the Theater Oobleck Lobby
 
Two friends of mine and I
were waiting in the Theater Oobleck lobby
to see a play
The Slow and Painful Death of Sam Shephard that day
while waiting for the show to start
we decided to create some art
We each wrote a line off the top of our head
and folded the paper over so it could not be read
we wrote til the paper was filled up and started a new one
three in total were all done
I named them after we wrote them all
forwards and backwards they work remarkable
I will post them here
cuz they're worth a share
read them all forwards and then from the bottom line up
you won't believe this incredible stuff


COSMIC ELECTRIC COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS
Way out of time in an outer space
and then the cosmic concussion set in
A castle on a green river - moat emoting treason
Full of songs and sorrows that drive one mad
Madrigal mandarins mesmerized many
Orbitting dizzy...one way...red moon...out
Tumultuous terror versus the serenity of man
And the empty slate was erased...yet again it was blank
Not looking through the cosmic eye wondering what is said
You know not what you do but it's real
The peace and quiet of loud noise broke the sound barrier
Newspaper parapet - a carnival of clouds
Get out of the clouds and into the sun
And all was still...and all was moving...and all was...was...

Author's Notes/Comments: in this piece three of us each wrote a line my lines start with the second then skip two,etc...so... and then the cosmic concussion set in....madrigal mandarins mesmerized many....and the empty slate...the peace and quiet...and all was still...

AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME
Stars crashing in frenzied mania...adrenaline nectar
Shadows on the silver tell of the unknown
The cosmic collective unconscious collided in the reflection of the mirror
Collapsing into a tube of sound all around is my arctic visions
The rhythmic movements usher in the trance
Bubbles and baubles beat rhythms in my brain
A decisive derision...a ride on an expired transfer
Parallel lines will eventually intersect
Reality was reel-to-real
Caught in a wave of caution
Subsequent dreams provided the truth
Sparkling water shown bright in the moonlight
Mutated petals on a rose of your choosing
Wishes are not only for the lonely
Depth of thought...height of sensation...width unknown...
motorized....paralyzed....beauty...
a saccharine starlet speaks of love...unbelievable
the game is eight ball...rack 'em up
barely born and already gone
faces on shoes that tell the time
and off in the distance I saw a vertical horizon

In this piece again written with two friends my lines start with the third so...the cosmic collective,etc....bubbles and baubles,etc...reality was...sparkling water...depth of thought...the game...and off in the distance....

STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH
The square root of infinity
Top hat...drowned cat...regardless of right or wrong
Steal away to the source...the energy
Spiraling,circling colors everywhere
Descending maudlin greys defending what is past and future and present
Insane bricks construct the fortress that keeps one down
Peanut butter and jelly with a side order of oatmeal please
Cross-eyed and tongue-tied...my bearings are scattered...tattered...lost
Contemporary minds should leave the corporate world behind to find their destinies
Cotton candy clouds were melted by the sun...it was sticky
Inspiration on the head of a pin...the penance is the point
Look out...the trees are talking and they're telling tales
The candlelight flickered a thought form
Manhattan melodrama...a scream in vain HELP
The sparks always fly faster by night

in this piece my lines start with the first...the square root of infinity...spiraling...peanut butter...cotton candy clouds...the candlelight flickered a thought form....

I love the way you can read them all forwards and backwards...I actually like some better backwards...but love both ways....and knowing nobody read what anyone else wrote just off the top of our heads write a line and pass the paper around...I think we were picking up on the energy in the space cuz it was a very abstract play...we absolutely loved it...Hope you enjoy the three collaborative pieces as much as I do...this brings back one of my absolute fondest memories....glad to share it here...we were drinking lots of coffee so caffeine is a dangerous drug and this is the proof of that...dangerously creative that is...
