to bring peace out of war
and squeeze water from oil and blood Read the rest of this entry 

Dance Floor (1998)

Feeling the rapture of a thousand intoxicated eyes,
Seething laser-like through the hysteria,
Seething through the perfumed oneness of our breaths.
This is the cosmos of mental instrumentation,
Of mental hallucination,
Of surreal feelings like floating through
Violet colored Nebula; Read the rest of this entry

Justice is only justice…

Don’t spend too much time trying…

Chess is not always about winning…

It is not enough to merely use your eyes…

To embrace the true essence of life…
