nina, pinta, santa maria..

Posted to Poetry




"say josh, when you gonna get outta this town?"
i dont know man, i dont know.
"say josh when are you gonna stop beatin yoself around?"
i dont know man, i just dont know.

everything to you, everything you do, it all comes
in the shade of black and blue.
everything you are, and all of your scars.
it all adds up to being you.

we listened to Southern Man.
He told me what he thought.

"say josh, what do you have in mind?"
i dont know man, i dont know.
"say josh, what do you have in store WITH your mind?"
i dont know man, i dont know.

"lillie bell your hair is golden brown. "
i know it.
i know it.
"i see your black man, comin round."
i wanna set sail, set sail for good.
"swear by god im gonna, cut him down"

i wanna travel through time and through space,
i wanna crawl through a worm hole and come out with no face.

i wanna glide past jupiter, saturn, and mars.
-i wanna go out----and go out far.

i wanna be the first man to travel through space,
with the exception of Jerry Garcia.
and i want to do it all,
on the nina, the pinta, and the santa maria.
