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!

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

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…

I Read Your Letters

You write them, I’ll read them!

Joseph S from the Republic of Crimea wants to know:

1. What is the meaning of life?

2. Please tell  me about your philosophy in regards to writing poetry.

Letter to Erozeno: Joseph S

Thank you for your letter, Joseph S!

As for the meaning of life, “Death Before Disco” was a popular slogan in the late 1970s and I think it should merit consideration today. Seriously, Henry Miller said that love is the one thing we don’t give (or receive) enough. I agree that life is love. The quality of life is measured by how much love we give, and how much love we receive.

Writing poetry is the essence of beautiful failure. At some point in writing (as in life) we will fail. The key is to fail beautifully while striving gallantly. Poetry comes to life when we have the courage to pick-up the pen after a beautiful failure.

Peace and love always!
