Write Me!

Dedicated to those lonely words patiently waiting for their chance…

Write Me

I am a word
Write me!

I hide-out in the
deepest recesses
of your mind

I haunt your dreams
I visit your fantasies
and darkest imagination

I hang-out on the fringe
of your subconscious
between reality and illusion

I am out there with you
I float around the cosmos
I congregate in cyberspace

I am a word
Write me!

I could alter your life
I could start a revolution
I could change the world

I bring your lover to tears
I am your Alpha and Omega
I turn your fantasies into reality

I am a word
Write me!

I am the prism through which
you make sense of a crazy world

I need you
You need me

Love me
Embrace me

Write me!

LOVE AND HOPE AND SCARY DREAMS I

I walked through the valley of darkness; the place where I lost my soul. I tried in vain to find a path to the light.

I saw a pair of headlights shining in the distance. I smelled burning metal and flesh.

The headlights became brighter as they steadily approached.

A burning car stopped within a few feet of me. My father was behind the wheel of Mustang Sally.

He got out of the car, and left the engine running. It was too dark to recognize his passenger.

A Mickey Newbury song blared from the car’s stereo speakers.

“…I tripped on a cloud and fell eight miles high
I tore my mind on a jagged sky…”

My father approached me. I reached to hug him but he resisted, saluting me. Half of his right arm was missing. The remainder of his sleeve swung limp and impotent.

His chest was full of medals. He wore a necklace of human ears from the victims he killed in Vietnam. Each pair of ears was a confirmed kill; my father’s souvenir from the war.

“I’m sorry son,” he said. “Sorry to leave you and your mother. But duty called, and a man must answer.”

My mother had been pregnant with me when my father was sent to Vietnam.

“Let me tell you,” he continued. “Vietnam is a great place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.”

“How about die there?” I joked.

He stared at me.

Some people can tell them and some people can’t.

“…I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in. I watched myself crawlin’ out as I was a-crawlin’ in…”

Live Today

Let’s live today!

The most

important

part of life

is to live

 

To do

To be

To experience

To feel

To love

 

Never worry

about the forces

acting upon us

or against us

 

Participate

Take a chance

Walk the path

 

Just be

Get on the road

Endure the curves

Savor the straight-a-ways

Learn from its twists and turns

 

What others think

makes no difference to us

Their opinions are their own

and have no bearing on how we live

 

We shall never spend our lives

living by the rules of others

 

We shall live today

 

We learn to live

when we turn

loose of fear

prejudice

and hatred

 

Live now

Live in the moment

Enjoy this gift of life

Enjoy this gift of time

 

Savor every moment

of this irrationality of being

 

Smile

Love

Be loved

Make love

 

Risk annihilation

Risk the end of this life

 

Let’s risk it all

Let’s take the plunge

Let’s take that road together

 

Let’s live

Let’s love

Let’s be loved

Let’s make love

 

Let’s have fun

Let’s live free from fear

 

Let’s create

Let’s explore

 

Let’s live today

This book will not help you lose weight
It will not cure your erectile dysfunction
It does not increase the size of your breasts

It will not cure your halitosis

It does not remove embarrassing acne and blemishes

It will not increase the length of your penis
It will not help you find your soul mate
It does not accept major credit cards

This book has no benefits
It has no side effects
Please do not ask your doctor about this book.

 

Erozeno’s Contribution to Psychiatric Medicine

The Dream

or

Erozeno’s Contribution to Psychiatric Medicine

Setting: Erozeno lies on a chaise lounge in the office of Doctor Eva B. Freud, Cognitive mis-Behavioral Specialist. He wears a Dead Kennedys concert T-shirt (Jello Biafra-era) and a beach towel around his waist. Clad only in black lace stockings and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle® headband, Doctor Freud sits in her office chair opposite Erozeno. Her legs are crossed as she takes notes. The music of Tom Waits (“Heartattack and Vine”) fills the background.

 

EROZENO

Am I crazy Doctor Freud?

 

DOCTOR EVA B. FREUD

Please tell me about your dreams.

 

EROZENO

I have only one.

 

DOCTOR EVA B. FREUD

I’d love for you to tell me about it.

 

EROZENO

Electromagnetic waves fill my body. My soul flies forward at the speed of light. Earth crashes and burns around me. Apocalyptic light blinds my vision. Searing heat chars my flesh, but somehow I am unharmed…

 

DOCTOR EVA B. FREUD

Please go on.

 

EROZENO

Redemption explodes around me. It’s within my grasp, but it always eludes me. I can sense it. I can see it, but I can’t touch it. I can’t feel it. I can’t embrace it.

 

DOCTOR EVA B. FREUD

(Laughs hysterically)

 

EROZENO

(Sits up) Why are you laughing? (Frantically) Am I crazy Doctor Freud?

 

DOCTOR EVA B. FREUD

(Uncrosses her legs, leans forward, and whispers in Erozeno’s ear) On the contrary, I think your dream is sexy…
