The echos are nice
if you keep a clean house.

We each hear our note amid the rest
and so listen … raw note.

…and if the cloth is to be frawth with meaning
and I do it here … then where else?

calling’ bottom line … dropping’ acid
and if it’s just because I dropped?

In an acid trip any reflection is a glare.

Why is it, on acid, I can feel being
give rise to being
like that warm fire that rises from my stomach
and invades every fiber.

Men I can respect are beginning to form pictures
around me … Bach, Rajneesh …

I’ve been thru the ones who write about it
It is! It’s with what respect we give it.

Friday, July 11th, 1980

Witnessing can be done anywhere.
So nothing needs be done
no need to begin …

Amid the drifting sheets
of the afternoon’s suchness
three o’clock calls

A day starts as an accolade
and then drifts to mixed reviews
those that applaud the rise
and those who mourn the fall

so every act
… moment… person… thought…
