Francis: Heya wassup. Ethan: man, I don’t know what was in the air today, but it was busy… Simon: (sniffs air) some pizza, some bacon, some eggos, Ethan: that’s what’s in the fridge… Simon: Oh… Francis: Sit down, fluff up, drink a beers… Ethan: wait, what did y’all DO while I was gone??? Simon: ….. Francis: we napped, and we watched doctor who’s and simons threw up in the bed…and we played with the tennis ball… Ethan: wait! Ahhh man…you want a popsicle? Francis: I want purple! Ethan: Not you,you’re fine… Francis: (cough cough) oh no’s no’s no’s no’s..I gots the sick. Simon: I don’t believe he’s ever been sick. Ethan: Well, he’s never ate from the trash.
Bring all of the broken pieces to light, are we doing alright? Empty inside…. Like all of these open roads… Detached, Religions said to deny what’s inside, Culture said conform and get in line… We can’t feel what’s left to – We all keep – caving…. Empty vessels …. Out on these open roads —— There has to be some kind of beauty Some kind of lines worth writing Were we not shaped by light? Held by truth? Grown by love ? By love My love My love Love… Around these open roads This house is burning all of these broken pieces … We used to be fighters but now We feel so empty Detached from any identity Any kind of sense of self Worth saving… Were we not shaped by light Held by truth Grown by love By love My love My love Love… —— All is fair in love and war —— Hold to me through your night Until you’re doing alright It’s just open roads It’s just memory And sensory It’s just time In that jar of sand You are light You are eternity And everything is passing But you are beginning You matter You are all the borders to the ocean You are the depths we haven’t seen yet The quilting to the universe You are identity Autonomy Beauty And hope …. You are beginning…. Just beginning…
I keep moving my couch closer and pretending it doesn’t matter ….
Pictures give us words
We are textured
Can you downsize the American dream?
We can find answers in 5g speed
We are born with a cellular plan
But we don’t know our neighbour
A pastors struggle on Monday morning
Are we red and blue state ?
People vote, or don’t vote, for various reasons.
One Party is the single issue party. Or the anti vax, anti mask, lower tax…don’t take my guns?
No, one party is the American dream, Reagan party, read, communicate, write, dream, love your country, write your wife love letters from across the room. You’re groomed from a young age to vote red.
The business owner. Trying to dream.
The other is college kids, millennials, like it or not, woke, sensitive to every issue, minority, apologising, how will the kids make it during this economy?
Most of us are somewhere in the middle not on the fringes…who’ve lived through a handful of economic collapses…
Most of us have lost someone to this virus…
I was talking with a nurse and she was telling me of the horror of a patient dying…of the horror that people still think this is a hoax, the fact that these patients are protected by privacy laws and this creates a gap…and we will never know…but they know…and for them…this is a nightmare…
Now, what do people vote on?
Somewhere in the middle.
We have more in common than we think.
The whole silence is violence
be woke to every single new thing ….
that’s a big tab…
the answer to winning votes and states
is not be the most liberal…
it’s connecting to the country.
We are all Americans.
Unplug from social media,
You can block and unfollow each-other all day long but these are real people with real lives and real votes and they are not going anywhere, they’re our neighbours our mothers our siblings.
what do we all have in common.
Return to the vision. Return to common sense, adulthood …
you can build a platform and a table with room for everyone.
We can’t go back…we go forward…beyond the light…or we fade into oblivion…
Francis: what’s to eat! I put my order in days ago. Who’s running this joint anyway. Ethan: Hey now, you big jerk… Simon: Hey I was thinking we could eat sandwiches. Pastas. Oh wait wait…pasta sandwiches… Ethan: (gags) it’s ok (gags again) how about a spinach salad…with salman…maybe- Simon: what’s a s-s-a-lad?? Ethan: ….it’s spinach and greens…with oil and vinegar…salt and pepper…don’t use ranch it ruins it…like axe body spray… Simon: I don’t get it? France: Yeah me either, with all the oil and vinegar? Where do you put the lasagna? Ethan: Great day, Simon, a salad is all the stuff you eat outside. And Francis, we are not having lasagna… Francis: ( big eyes) Ethan: we’re compromising for spaghetti and garlic toast… Simon: Yeahh Toast!
