Be Here Now

Slow rock music continues
Floating above us
When I’m around you
You say be here now
I’m trying to figure out how
Did I get here in the first place
I mean
To be clear enough to say
To recall the things
I put into a box that day
Well enough to open it up again
Magic almost like this sunrise
Or tucking ourselves
Back inside under the covers
Hide our eyes
Hide your eyes
Hide my eyes
I want to make sure you are ready
For the next two days we have
The next two weeks we have
The next two years we can
Get away again
Like tonight in somber light
Except without the wasted time
Most people spend
Trying to figure out how
Be here now you said
To be clear enough to love
The most we can
Before we’re dead

Here With Me

Inside you’ll find
A piece of my heart
From inside my heart
That is just a piece of you
From inside of me
That is the part of you
I feel connects with me
You can also hold it
If you need to find
Your piece of mind
Or love from me
I am with you
Just as you
Are here with me

Why does this
Biological wiring
Find itself fighting
To exist
Coming up for air
And then not
Metaphysical electricity
Psychological wiring
Reading the signs as we
Spend our lives
Running from
Our peace of mind
Blank space
Yet racing for the phone
Is it an
Elemental fact
That the hamster wheel
Has become the Earth
Busyness constrained
To one area
The hedonic
Stay at home
Treadmill champion
Fleeing from
Newsreels of
Disquieting knowledge

Stepping through the
Backdoor to consciousness
When the brain wants to
Find something to do
Bypassing our
Realities revisioning
Habitual barricades
Desperate to touch another human
Breaking down
The formulas for fun
Caught up in the
Jigsaw puzzle of
Thought and feeling
Smiling to reveal
Even reality
Has a sense of humor
Afresh dancing in place
Now here we are
Survivors of
Immeasurable events
