SONG FRANCISCO: A Collection of Poems from my Califonia Trip

YVR AIRPORT:

weary traveller of the early morn

I see you quiet eyes

I see your faces scorn

But these customs which have come to pass

bring us all together – uniting us at last.

SAN FRAN:

This City is Poetry

So tired I don’t know up from down

trying to find my way around

loving, leaving, receiving and believing in us.

making my way in a new place

not one single familiar face

finding new friends along the way

love is, everyday.

SONG FROM LAST NIGHT:

I was meant to walk this way

to hear your song

though the way I walked was wrong

I was meant to hear your song

so long

OBSERVATIONS:

the texture of the houses

the quality of the pigeons

thickness of the smog

the price of transit

houses! oh so many houses!

music on the bus

dancing in the aisles

Directions. Perfections.

CAFE GRATITUDE: (spoken)

I don’t know if this place is a dialogue or a monologue, but it is the real live cafe. What do you love about yourself?

misery loves company and happiness creates it,

but abundance knows it was there all along.

They do have loonies in the states – I feel like a pirate with all this silver and gold!

GOLDEN GATE:

when we jump

are we falling or flying?

when we jump

are we living or dying?

have I come here by mistake

or is this a chance I was meant to take?

to let it all

fall away.

When god sends fog I choose fog.

When god sends smog I choose smog.

When love sends fog I choose fog.

When love sends smog I choose smog.

When love sends god I choose god.

NO MEANS, not now. not how.

MISSION:

Public art, redefined. The luggage tagged fence is a friend of mine.

CALIFORNYA:

I’ve been to places that don’t exist

i’ve seen faces with open lips

i’ve touched fingers that I nearly missed

and i’d do it all again

SANTA CRUZ:

I’ve got sand in my soul and sand on my soles.

I fell asleep

to an ocean of dreams

I sailed across

to a pier of belief

and I rode the wave

of possibilities

Crabs! The butterflies of love!

MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK:

“Everything is alright

let’s get fucked up and die

i’m on fire, but now I think i’m ready, to bust a move, check it out i’m rockin steady!”

“You lose so many things in this small world” – James Kirkland

WHAT A JUICY WORKSHOP!

Ho a pono pono

a pono pono

I’m so sorry

I wanna thank you

please forgive me

I love you

Ho a pono pono

a pono pono

There is nothing you can do that will make me stop loving you.

caltrain

cal train

calt rain

SUBLIME:

secondhand soundtrack on a starry night

i’ll let you be the melody that lights me inside

THE RETURN:

I bought a one-way ticket on the early morning train

because i’m going home but i’m going away

there’s a love in my heart that is here to stay

for I hold space, in every place

Goodbye!

California!

Hello!

Good Morning!

maybe later i’ll be back like a train on the track

but.

THAT’S ALL I GOT!

Circa August 16 to 24th, 2011
