god bless america

tea lounge | brooklyn | new york | 07 january 2009

blessed be the meek, inheritance of a heritage,
a heritage of meekness – inherently pure,

non-adjustable bubbles, of light, of vision,
momentarily moving within and without our very being,
visual symphonies of color, light and form,

interspersed with bureaucratic branding
linguistic lamentations and media murmurs,

carefully designed to incite inbred ignorance and temporary bliss,
a happy country is a god loving country,
the god of love, the god of food, the god of money,

worship is worship,

a ship of fools or noahs arc, a place to be part of the crew,
hoisting sails anew,
to be filled with the shifting winds of time,
trimmed to perfection by our parents, peers and priests,

until finally we set sail as the el capitain,
of own uniquely designed and finely tuned vessel,
to intuit the trade winds and gulf streams,
of aloneness and solitude,

within the fleet of functionality,
searching the seas for the treasure within,
the elusive holy grail,
under guidance of the godmen,

american, tibetan, hispanic, african – all travelers,
within time and space,
awaiting the return to innocence,

the next departure or sailing date to shores unknown,
and union with beings unknown

god bless america !
