Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

you just can't sleep
oh I know
it is good to sleep

I tell those I work with
get your sleep

but sometimes
you just can't sleep

life intrudes
your mind goes crazy
and so there you are

on your computer
early in the morning

not surfing
not reading the political news
how depressing is that?

just wandering around
looking for a place to land
sometimes reality sucks
realizing who you are
what you life is like
you can pretend
you can practice denial
a specialty of mine
but at 3 or 4
in the morning
pretense dies
and you must look in the mirror
and see
