Default Aux-In's Affectations

A thread for my musings. Let's begin.

Default "Getting Back on the Seahorse"

"Hello, there"
Just spent your very last dime
Long way to go, now
I suppose you know
Now
In the meantime
As you follow
Hands in motion
More years you borrow
Somehow

Captain's calling
What's the matter?
Rafts filled with patience
Atop multi-tiered ladders
So bottoms up, now
Reputation
Repetition
All those things that she's been thinkin'

At the club
A bar
Or on a boat
For all those things we never wrote
Hit the floor
Set goals for more
So much for putting trust in a fisherman's bore

I'm appealing
Sweet Girl's concealing
On the waves to Illinois

------------

^^ This one's still a work in progress.

Default "No. 1"

Captured in time
This certainty has allowed me
Breadth, depth and freedom to be
The autopilot
And the manual entry
That's all I see

In multiple facets of life
It is Washington's John Adams
No matter the coordinates
Or the destination
No matter the relevancy of Chenopodium quinoa
Or that of the Oryza glaberrima
The appearance is uncanny
No matter the flow from the bursting riverbanks of Advanced Technology
Or that of the shuttered rigs of exploration from the deepest of Seas
Stems the cells of discovery
Guess that's how it's supposed to be

From free ports
& dry bulk...
...minstrels, and minerals
Average down the dock now
As I compromise my principles

Searching...
Encroaching complacency
Searching...
"Woah! Now that is something," I go
Instant treasuries and memories
Unexpected
On this flight
Unexpected
On any night

-At a bar
-A club
-Or on a boat

For future moments,
made for Hallmark notes?
No one knows

But mostly all I care about,
is that my toaster's heat setting provides for the perfectly-timed tenderness of the whole-wheat bread for which I desire
Not too soft
Not too crisp
And sometimes that involves the scientific method.

Default "Too Many Spins"

Company of a bygone
High gone
Isn't she at ease?
Benny Goodman on the reel-to-reel
She's not hard to please

An intro to Seattle
Back when men wore beepers
Handled vestiges,
+ boxes + bundles
Of geometric plastic
But cut gloves and tattered sweaters, you know?
So don't get too ecstatic
"That music's nice"
Respect for sage advice
From that 1099 chimney sweeper

Signing five-finger autographs
Of men likened to a dog
Gather 'round a Tetherball
I think his clouded memory's clogged
$ixty for three
There's more than one lifter
With 30-year albatrosses
Laid across the shifter
That good 'ol hidden fee
Once threw bottle caps at tires
Now in a room of empty wires
'Cause decisions aren't always free
You stupid, dumb-ass grifter
