#49 Twice So Doubly Apt to Say

My everything is anything,
Twice so doubly apt to say.
When reason-thinking's sillified,
By half-thought silence by the way.

A half-glimpsed secret nullified
By twice distracted green-light goes
When dust-mote sunbeam silent house
A weekday slow solidified.

My everything is anything,
Twice so doubly apt to say.

#50 BUCKET HEAD

Fill your mind with yesterdays,
And you're gonna miss today.
Fill it with tomorrows,
And you're gonna miss today.

Today's the only day that counts,
Like it did yesterday.
Today's the only day that counts,
Just like it will tomorrow.

Empty out that bucket head,
That's filled with so much stuff,
That's piled up since you were a kid,
Isn't it full enough?

Empty out that bucket head,
Fill it with today.
Empty it of yesterdays,
Empty of tomorrows,

Empty it of bank accounts
And nerve-wrack yester-sorrows,
Empty it of failing states and
Beg buy steal and borrows.

Empty it of Holy Ghosts
And patriotic slogans,
And left-right-red-blue stupid shit
And television dumb-shows.

Your entire lifespan,
However long it's been,
Has led up to this very day
Don't miss it yet again.

So empty out that head of yours
That's filled with so much shit,
Look around and take a breath
And realize: this is it.

# ONE TRUE ALLEN WRENCH

And yea, though you find the allen wrench set, after looking in the Five Places, thou shalt not find the one of the proper size, for Lo! There are two missing. And again thou shalt search, and Yea! You shall, in that other toolbox with the stuff you don't use very often, thou shalt find yet another allen wrench set, different from the first, yet similar. But nay, thou shalt not find the one of the proper size, and there will be much gnashing of teeth.

Search in vain, thou shalt not find what you seek, and the Bristles from the Wire Brush will stab thine fingers, and the tiny drawers with various screws, nuts and bolts shalt confound you, you shall not find the allen wrench, the One True Allen Wrench, proper for the task, and thou shalt weep. Yea, you will find loose allen wrenches hither and yon, but not the One True Allen Wrench of Power.

But Lo! Those little allen-wrench tipped screwdriver thingies you got at the Dollar Store, in an age past shalt be discovered unlooked for, and the proper size shalt be revealed, and the little set screw to hold the wheel on the axle shalt be turned clockwise, as it was written.
