Automatic Lightning

‘Connect.’  ‘Shun.’ Two words / concepts about as diametrically opposed as are ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’. Either way will always be the same way: Chose. Only. One. The. Other. Has. To. Go.

Unless … Unless … the two were to marry. Shunning their individual singularity. Casting off, eradicating the negativity  keeping them apart. Allowing for an infinitely more life affirming bond: a true connectshun / connection born of the Heart.

You knew this. Deep in your wonderfully twirling swirling mind this truth you held self-evident. For, a ridiculously gifted girl, you were. My Gosh … glance at my 16-digit phone card twice and you use it without looking. Like freaking Hendrix. He never looked. Why would he – people don’t need to look at their feet when they walk.

They Just Walk .. Jimi Just Played .. And You .. You Just Could, In general .. You Just Could.

Standing there in the doorway … a still-life painting of a wildly gesturing pantomime. Your ‘Automatic Habit’ held in abeyance if only for a short time.

Yeah Yeah Yeah … And the way you looked was way beyond compare. Made you laugh. Made you laugh. Hard. Shaking your head / swinging your long brown hair.

It was that instant I knew you’d be mine. Smiling & laughing and looking so fine.

But your porcelain mannequin feared attack. Your smooth, young skin beginning to crack … where? … how much? … is it good? … I don’t care … Gimme Gimme Shelter.

Some shelter from the raining draining paining brain storm. Daily ‘must do’ notes and articles? Whatever. Splat. Balled up and thrown face first on the ground.

Spider Lightning in your head. Invading / Desecrating the newlyweds’ bed.

Believing that the Spider and Lightning know best. Searching for something Good. Then Beyond both Better & Best.

I CRY that You found it.

And pray In Peace You Rest ….
