The Garden Datura

The Angelic Triathlon
of a lysergic urge;
The Up ‘n’ Away …
mind baggage to purge
The Look All Around …
with eyes once blind
And then,the Big Come Down
via the Big Dipper
around the Cosmic Bend

Held in the Datura Garden
somewhere beyond nature
hidden deep within a space
and time triangulation
Not for the meek
for the body is weak
But angels,they belong
Yet, please be so kind
not to be a closed mind
behind a drawn blind
gone all worldly wrong

New documentary & photographic

‘Poetry of America –
The Cosmic Athletes’
~ by Salvador Dali

Everybody knows
that the dice are loaded.
Everybody rolls
with their fingers crossed.
Everybody knows the war is over.
Everybody knows the good guys lost.
Everybody knows the fight was fixed.
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich.
That’s how it goes.
Everybody knows.

And everybody knows
that it’s now or never.
Everybody knows
that it’s me or you.
And everybody knows
that you live forever,
ah, when you’ve done a line or two.
Everybody knows the deal is rotten.
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
for your ribbons and bows.
And everybody knows.
~ Leonard Cohen
