Goodbye to Ken Kesey

Posted to Tribute to Ken Kesey

Standing vibrant alive
hero figures
to lead me
to show me things
to pour mad words
directly into my brain
and passion
directly into my veins
but things can only sparkle
until it's time to fade
I need new heros
come and save the day.
Show me daydream fantasies
show me alternate realities
show me there's
some other way to be.
Sparkle then fade
it's the end of the day
watching the sinking sun
hearing the traffic swell
I never saw you
but always wished you well
it's just sparkle
then fade
and it's time to go.
