To play the Angels Game

You need to know

Rules of civility

And before you dive into

Sophie’s world

You should attend

The Friday Night knitting club

Where you will meet Ariel

And the Naked Anthropologist

Before discovering

The perks of being a wallflower

And falling into the Dead Zone

And given 

The wolf gift

To try and be the Other half of me

Hopes and Dreams

doing and saying

we all do what we can

to make our cut in the worlds hemisphere

and we hope that it is

enough to make us

more than just a talker

so we live our lives

by a clock

as we dive into

masterpieces

of art life and humanity

to mean something

to ourselves

if not  to anyone else

Here I come

I want to see those age old stones

Where so many generations have passed

Where the wise people have lived

Making predictions and calculations

That we’re too technical to understand

I want to understand that age old wisdom

That our western culture has let slip away

You built the pyramids

Among other great carvings

While we build track homes

Within a six month period

I want to go back

Just for awhile

And experience all that knowledge first hand

From the ancient people of Egypt, Greece and Rome

Tell me the way to that mystical understanding

That those born in this century don’t seem to understand

Take me back

To that time of ancient understanding

Where things didn’t have to be scientifically proven

To be reguarded as real

When they knew that the stars fortold our destiny

And our palms were imprinted with the same

When the moon was understood to have powers

Such was its gravitational pull

Where the realm of those unseen spirits lurked closely

And everyone knew we possesed a soul

Take me back to that place of Mystical understanding

As I walk up the desecrated sidewalk the haunted house of Main Street captures my eye

It’s kept in place by a massive stone wall and iron spikes

It’s gothic arch invites the lurking spirits of far and wide

The looming oak tree projects its eerie shadows to the side

The old swing in the front sways like the tide

And I’m afraid the former owner never really died
