Wild Cotton Still-Life — A Place To Start   1 comment

A place to start

look at you
kenne g
you have taken multi-tasking to a fault

you need to be
more focused
uncomplicated

this is what they tell me
information is good
opinion
music
poetry
photo art
all are good

but, you are inexorable

demurred, I say
I do what I do
because I can

maybe you can’t,
you’re the problem
not me

all things are connected
not an isolated island
I choose to stay linked
open secret places
plant seeds
harvest thoughts
bucket ideas

but, you discard mind droppings

I mix and match
generating energy
to form inspiration

feel the heat
see the stream
it’s all shit

the shit sits
generating food
for tomorrow’s ideas
powering the music
stand up and dance
when I’m not here
there will be a place to start

but, you can add to my pile

(I wrote this poem November 2008 in response to being told that my blog needed to focus on one thing like photography, music, poetry, or art not many things — advice not taken.)

A place to start

look at you, kenne g
you have taken
multi-tasking to a felt

you need to be
more focused
uncomplicated

this is what they tell me
information is good
opinion
music
poetry
photo art
all are good

but, you are inexorable

demurred, I say
I do what I do
because I can

maybe you can’t,
you’re the problem

all things are connected
not an isolated island
I choose to stay linked
open secret places
plant seeds
harvest thoughts
bucket ideas

but, you discard mind droppings

I mix and match
generating energy
to form inspiration

feel the heat
see the stream
it’s all shit

the shit shits
generating food
for tomorrow’s ideas
powering the music
stand up and dance
when I’m not here
there will be a place to start

but, you can add to my pile

 place to start

you say

look at you
kenne g
you have taken
multi-tasking
to a felt

you need
to be
more
focused
uncomplicated

i say

information is good
opinion
music
poetry
digital art

all are good
but look at you
you are
inexorable
demurred

i say
i do what
i do
because
i can

maybe
you can’t
maybe
you’re the problem
not me

all things
are connected
only to be
disconnected
in the head

i choose
to stay
linked
open
secret places

plant seeds
harvest thoughts
bundle ideas
but you discard
mind droppings

i mix and match
generating energy
forming inspiration
feeling the heat
boiling

see the stream
it’s all
shit
the shit’s
shit

generating food
for tomorrow’s ideas
powering the music
stand up
dance

when i’m not here
there will be a
place to start
to add
to my bundle
