Do The Dead Know What Time It Is? (By Kenneth Patchen)
The old guy put down his beer. Son, he said, (and a girl came over to the table where we were: asked us by Jack Christ to buy her a drink.) Son, I am going to tell you something The like of which nobody was ever told. (and the girl said, I’ve got nothing on tonight; how about you and me going to your place?) I am going to tell you the story of my mother’s Meeting with God. (and I whispered to the girl: I don’t have a room, but maybe…) She walked up to where the top of the world is And He came right up to her and said So at last you’ve come home. (but maybe what? I thought I’d like to stay here and talk to you.) My mother started to cry and God Put His arms around her. (about what? Oh, just talk…we’ll find something.) She said it was like a fog coming over her face And light was everywhere and a soft voice saying You can stop crying now. (what can we talk about that will take all night? and I said that I didn’t know.)
You can stop crying now.
-Been loving the intense lyrics of the great Patchen lately. One of my personal favs.
I have decided to create an additional blog specifically for all things I’m into that aren’t original poems/photos/art/bs/etc. If you like my music posts and the like, please follow this new blog, as less music will be appearing via Infinite Centuries….
I "like" a lot of your things but it never shows up because the internet at my job runs like fucking dial-up sometimes. it's the worst. and if there's a time when I'm on tumblr and not at work, I'm pretty blitzed so I forget to go back and click the little heart on all of the cool things I tried to "like" earlier. also, in response to your last bit of writing, I adore all things lavender. more so the flower and not so much the color though. replying to posts apparently doens't work either.
Hahaha it’s all good. I’m glad you enjoy :) and I always had a hard time clicking dem tiny hearts when blitzed. In addition, lavander stars in my shaving cream but I really don’t know how or why…. Mysteries of shaving cream. Part 1 lol.
