Do Something

death As anybody who’s
ever read this here
Muscleheaded Blog
knows, I’m no
philosopher.

It’s not my
place/role/
mission/avocation
to break our existence
down into it’s several
component parts,

and explain daffy
each one
of them in a way
that they can be
clearly understood
and appreciated.

Nope.

And it’s not
given to me
to offer
sage advice
on important down
matters
of life and love.

Nope.

Hell,
I wouldn’t
take any
of my own advice….

so,tophat
I see no reason
why anybody
else should.

For all I know
this thing of
ours that
we call life
is nothing but
a colossal circle-jerk
or some kind of
supernal
misunderstanding.

What was that
question about the
meaning of life?

Ahhh —

well, I dunno,
you might try
the IRS toll freea2
information line.

(That’s assuming they’re
not on furlough again),
if you call
three times
and ask the
same question,
I bet you’ll get
at least three
different answers
from them, too.

That’s not much
of a ideology
upon which to base
constructive suggestions,
I would think.

Nope.

My job is simplyiam
to laugh at it all.

And I spend a good deal
of time and energy
trying to fulfill my role
in that respect.

I’m not saying
it’s a tough job
or anything —
there’s so much
that is genuinely funny,dwig
either on the baser, gut level,
or on a more existential one.

Life isn’t easy —
— and if you can’t laugh at it,

well–
how much harder
does that make it, then?

I say, laugh…
’cause you can bet
that our cosmic
audience is, already.

I mean, sure —
it’s nice to be
able to say
that I’m gonna
change this,
or I’m gonna do
that different —wakeup

And on a personal level,
that’s perfectly practical,
and commendable.

But outside of that,
we’re all just
being washed slowly
down the universal river
without a paddle —

— no chance to eddy out on this ride.

People, places, and things
are just part of the
scenery sliding past.

So, if you get a chance to laugh
at the occasional
squirrel trying to
fuck an oak tree,
my advice is to
have at it, man.rest

Laugh,
I mean —

— but if you really
want a crack at that
old oak tree, yourself,
well…

… just watch out for
those damned splinters.

On My Last Day

On my last day
I will see you
for the
first time
Live my life
in an instant
No regrets
or longing
I have done what
I chose to do
.

Can I express
to you now
What was
unexpressable
before
Can you know
me now
When I was
so unknowable
then

.

Dust me off
Lay out my suit
Make me smile
with plasticine
Take me away
Lift the veil
Its old home
week, I hope

.

Can I
empathize now
What was
unsympathetic
before
Can you love
me now
When I was so
unlovable
before

.

On my last day
I will know you
for the first time
Love my love
in an instant
No hesitation
or pause
It can only
be this way.

.

!! HOY !!
