Ex-cream-mint

Reil Exce Rosanjelix 1970 (Portland, OR)



Sleeping on the night while I
stayed awake,
contemplating my navel high as the sky,
simple and assertive looking up words takes,
time is a frivolous anecdote, why?

What comes to one is not to
another,
the sum of all equals is
unknown
changes, evolution and eve
tried to cover,
feeling like were still missing
the grown.

Hit the beach after dark
away from lights,
sit and think about the lid on
this thing,
compare your life to the
finest civil rights,
know why spirit of life's
whistling dixie?

About this poem

If you've ever wondered why the universe is flat and not round consider also this: neither the chicken, the egg, NOR the rooster came first; we didn't either.
