Surreal Syphonating Sojourn by richard lynn livesay

Selective sifted associations recall restitutions

Relying regressively on the libel locutions

Of quantitative indulgence of rapid decline

Cast your bread


Post sanguine winds chilled with heat and ice

Restricting solitary enjoyment with a vengeance

Temporarily relieving prayers in concrete caskets

Seek yourself


Assertions oblique, rapidly dissolve stewed qualms

Rectifying holy abstinence of belief in subjugation

Quietly solving the conjectures of the god-head

Center and balance


Sequences solve the cycles of non- reincarnation

Always a non sequitur as a point of contention

As words of deities speak beyond human language

See through


Gather ‘round the barrel of Diogenes and learn, Earl

That anti-hypocritical musing is searching for honesty

Release the shackles of affluence and hegemony

Be real


Institutional corporations abort individualism

So to speak in the templates of style and die-cast

As toy soldiers melt in conspicuous confrontations

Define patriot


Digress from self- indulgence to self-sufficiency

Be french-fries in the oven not potatoes in the salad

Sell not your soul to sin-spinners for you are loved

Know and trust thyself


Greet the signs of chivalry with glowing castanets

Break loose the bells of revelry and dance with no regrets

Que sera, sera
