white room in my mind v.2

17 Jul

Photopoetry by Crazy Horse

the white room is

not only a place

not only a gasp

it’s a state of mind

it’s a social situation

it’s a predicament

it’s a crucible

it’s a forge

’tis the stuff dreams are made of.

blue bus

magic bus

i want i want to be

on the blue magic bus

i need to go to birdland

where troubles are left behind

where i could be carefree

albeit temporarily.

Note: I need to acknowledge my debts: the blue bus concept is Jim Morrison’s while the magic bus concept is from the British band The Who.

the blue bus is one

sure sign

i’m out, i’m free

i’m scot free

of the white room’s deadly embrace

the fiery black room

welcomes me

offers refuge

but does it?

isn’t it another test

another torture chamber

this time with

saccharine bullets

with deeply camouflaged

machinations ploys and plays

i had to stay alert

and street-smart

to avoid the traps and

maintain my self respect

i paid expensive tuition

in both rooms

i cannot say though that

i have mastered all the lessons

that could be learned in both

thus i welcome all the white rooms

the black rooms

the grey rooms

the blue buses

the yellow submarines

the lucies in the skies

the rose darlings

the josies, the pegs

the roxannes and the rosannas

the starry skies

the gentle sea breeze

the smell of meadows after light rains

the chuckle of babies

the guffaw of grandparents

Riders on the storm light my fire
and showed me to the next whiskey bar
where the L. A. woman waits
and people are strange
Doors_electra_publicity_photo
and yes, the river knows
when the music’s over–
the end, i mean,
with the lizard king bowing out and shouting,
Land ho!

that seems to be the curse

and the blessing

bestowed by every

why ever should
an intrepid submarine
be dubbed yellow?

why should
the gurl
have me?

can’t
i have
her instead?

will you
make a stand
in Kazakhstan?

in Tajikistan
perhaps
or in Kirghizstan?

why must
the fool
populate the hill?

why must
strawberry fields
remain forever?

should
i stay or
should i go?

why must
norway (in the north)
have good wood?

why is
the taxwoman still around
when the iceman has come?

why must
dragons decide
who reigns?

why must fire

Yemen is better than….

Nogurl or Nowoman…

Bob Marley disagreed…

He intoned: No woman, no cry!

Then he admonished us::

Get up!

Stand up!

Stand up…

For your rights!
