Natural / Un-naturalism

Aimless lover
Aiming loveless
Walking through the steps
Of romantic bliss

Colors throughout the night sky

Without committed entanglement
To slow down the trip
Rather fun exploring
Instead of settling for it

Wading thru transcendental
Testing sex experimental
Taunting conversation out of hiding
Gaining momentum each & every nightly

Better living through pharmaceuticals
Separating reality from the field trip astral
Like a vampire caught counting by the sun
Burnt up by the tracks ends a life on the run

Running for the joy of it
Maintaining a constant state of motion
Keeping up with the flow of it
Chatting up the riff to the beat & the rhythm

Until you write it all down
It’s just a figment of your imagination
Lay down your freestyle rhyme
And create something more tangible

Like the flip of a hammer
Caught on the downswing
Frantic flow of his banter
Enraptures even strangers that we meet

Driving the bus Further
Than the oj would allow
Full-tilt the whole trip
Feet barely touching the ground

Had the hustlers’ instinct to be
Whatever the person he was with
Wanted him to be
With such delicious spontaneity

So very co-dependently
Without pausing

Just wanted to drive fast
Maybe take the drag backwards
One eye over his shoulder
Got this shit mastered

Experience is the high
That lasts for miles & miles
That can get you off
Even from the passenger side

He always had to drive
Even from cali to the other side
To see the good doctor Timothy
Tripping out on LSD

always had to go faster
to get inside their heads
even so much faster than
down the roads he sped

braking to sing to a bird
taking her back at the nest
telling the lovely intelligence
until body & mind are spent

let the energy flow
with creative motion
feel the beatific glow
of instinctive emotion

rather relaxed
and ultra-magnetic
philosophical rap
about the Dharma Beatific.
