Morgan Spurlock Gave Me A Bagel...

current song: I Wanna Be Sedated

It's hard to tell sometimes if I am losing my mind,
or the World has simply gotten that weird.

Long walks help.

It's hot already here.

I should have taken these walks a month ago.
My head was just as screwed then--
But there were cool breezes.

Now you sweat.
And the green is not new green.
It's solid hard DARK green.

I see the waxy Magnolia flowers almost ready
to open.

The blue bonnets are pale and shriveling...
This is not their time.


Begun early this year.

Green goes dark........

The Heavy of Austin.

I lick my upper lip
as the sweat undoes me.
I look around.

Read the painted signs.

I thought I knew my neighborhood.

I didn't.

South Lamar.

I am looking BEHIND the things I see......
as my bus grumbles past these places every day.

Climb over a few fences.
Sit under an ancient Live Oak.....and watch the fire flies.



Sit still.


THIS is why I came back.

Walk some more.

The door closed softly behind me.
I do not want to lose what I found.

Hit the button that calls up the screen.

Try and Try and Try to lay down the words.

Is Mr. Spurlock responsible for the "FRUIT BUZZ"?

The TV, that is still on, in my apartment...

McDonalds could be seen three times
if you left yourself to periphery
on that street of NAGO
On Okinawa Japan.

A 60 mile long Island.........
and as many McDonalds as Austin has STARBUCKS.

34 circa 1985.
34 circa 2005.


Micky D's has FRUIT now.
what do they wash those apples in to make them look fresh cut
All day?

Maybe they didn't wash them in anything.
They just blended them with Sea-Monkeys.

Before they were picked.

It's hard to tell........
Whose mind has been lost.

I need to walk more.
