Friday Night At The Orchid Room

*strolls up to the stage….dragging a chair slowly behind me, hearing the legs scrape against the floor, echoing against the walls, the small audience is quiet*

*I sit down on the chair, light up a cigarette, and I just watch the people. Watching for reactions….*

So here it is….old age finally found me
Funny though, I don’t feel any


than I did yesterday. Or the day before,
or the week, the month, the year before.
It’s the same old grind day in day out
routine is NOT the mother of invention,
I’ll tell you that
right now.

Maybe one day, my views will change
I won’t be so angry
I won’t be so jaded….
so…..blase….bored with it all….
maybe one day,
could be tomorrow
next week
next month…..never
never know
but just sayin,
I can change if I wanna.

Thirty…..I am thirty, with the mindset
of an old lady….an old lady, voodoo
priestess perhaps, mystical sort,
if I choose to believe in re-incarnation
of souls, recycling lives
cause heaven ran out of room
for angels,
so he just sends back
the not so good ones
to keep on tryin
and tryin.

Will I ever get it right?
Will I ever get to make
it to nirvana?
To bliss…..
to go down, and be remembered
not for me….no… poet is truly
remembered for themselves,
but for the thoughts and words
I spin everyday, every minute,
even in my sleep man…
I am walking through
inspired waking dreams
with a low slung hip roll,
hands in my pockets,
