All Along

Have you been to Caesars Palace
To watch the blue sky
Mine more beautiful from this side
Real cloud patches roll by

I half float on the water
Knees bent, toes brush the sand
Arms stretched, pulled long
Holding imaginary rope in each hand

Ears under the aquamarine
I hear the crashing wave
She calls to me
My son be brave

I close my eyes to let her know
I'm going where I dared not to go
Into the bellows of the ocean
Through the cave of my soul
Don't know what I'll find
But there's treasure so I'm told

Below and beyond
I hear no sound
Traveling, traveling
Close to sea ground

I search for answers
To questions I don't know
My dreams swim to me
Prance, jump about and sing
I had it all along
Love acts
Not sits like a thing

Receive my child
Love's waiting for you
Open your heart
Remember, give too

You may stay she says
In her deep greenish blue
Never again hear lullabies
It's up to you

But the tide is high
It will take me to shore
I should go she says
Fear no more

She lifts me up
My eyes pop wide
I breathe on top
I awake inside

Alone with myself
Peaceful sky and ocean blue
Contemplating you

If I Had Hair

If I had hair
I'd take beautiful care
Style it long and short
From here to there
Slick it spike it fro it wide
Little tight wild bright
Zigzags on the side
Wear it as art
Not give a fu-fu-fart
Rip the streets
Let it blow like a video
If I had hair

I know that it
You can't help
On it in it from it won't quit
Crack a lackin crack
Raised in deep wack
Living, spewing out smack
Born crazy is the case against you
Your mind's not your own
I know
You're grown
You want I leave you alone
Look at you
Your swagger mimics
Boyz n the Hood
And the hanging smirk
Camouflaging your face
Doesn't hide the sad in your eyes
Which lumps in my throat
I see the good wolf
Trying to escape
I want from you
Gotta rewire
What you do

I Was Now I Am

I was sitting in a tree
Drifting free
Burn blew my brain
Feeling home again
Clarity formed like
A ghost alien swallowed me whole
It heaved, pushed
And lifted my soul
Only mellow knows
What 20 minutes can do
Zapping people's crazy
Like a VH 1 pop up video
Zap! Splat!
The noise
Now flat

Phone ringin'
Someone's radio blastin'
Yard cat singin'
Chil'ren in pool laughin'
In bed wrapped in head noise
Can't do life's dance

like a summer breeze
sauntering through morning's ease
smiling if I please
