The Same – The Self

June 20, 2009

Truckin’ along. More of The Same.

The Self
Fri Jun 19 20:44:53 2009

the self · the kingdom of the body and
the scene · the ego · and the monkey · some
sensation of the scene · the surface · with
a great desire to evaporate ·
the kingdom of the scene · appearing most
convenient · all the winds in life · a good
supply · along the bad · the superfluous ·
the most severe · excited to agree ·

the kingdom of the head · the passing clouds ·
the monkey · glitter on the outer shell ·
a moment · some sensation of delight ·
the first detachment of the cultured · that
the whole arrangement is perfect · the days
in an extraordinary manner · of
a greater feeling of repair · rejoice
in passing through the body and return ·

in all the language of excitement · as
the slow evaporation of the birds ·
the good idea of the tree · again
returning with the birds · a vessel of
about the same · a living thing · again ·
the others · rises to the whole · became
absorbed in thought · a little monkey · and
the presence of the rattlesnake · attached ·
