i'm staying on the fence, but i'll straddle it
conventional 'wisdom' often isn't
convention is there to be toyed with
convincing us of an alternate
contending our tendencies to chase it
conventional wisdom often isn't
convention is there to be toyed with
convincing us of an alternate

how can we submit to tradition without giving independence an honourable mention?
and, i should mention that 'human nature' is a bullshit conception;
we have a long-standing tradition of genocidal intention

and riddle me this:

- sex scene at eighteen: legal human being
- twenty-five to life (murdered man, sobbing wife)
- slaughterhouse/dead cows/blade to neck/fork to mouth/swing of guillotine a natural thing
- oh, but don't fuck the poor little things!

and my man chet atkins (i mean chet baker...) wanted to get lost
and i can relate to that first (but probably not foremost):
the remarkable feeling of being in motion again.
going to georgia, going to maine, there's never a "ville" with no "gaines".

but i'm not en-route looking for escapism.
i take trains: you'll find no vauxhall and i within
i've seen folks left high and dry scrambling to find piece of mind
running to burning men, looking for moments away to find nothing within.
