NINE NEURONS SHORT OF NIRVANA

Nine neurons short of nirvana, in splendiferous tangle,

We’re lost in the sauce, in love with the mystery,

We lush out rush in blow out, as in a candle.

Linking intricate constellations, losing count,

Scrimmaging love with power,

Nine neurons short of nirvana, in splendiferous tangle.

Building transitory mountains,

Stalked by black swans, marked by mishap; misshapen,

We lush out rush in blow out, as in a candle.

Morons, dark saints, dutiful heroes –

Heads down, we head dead ahead,

Nine neurons short of nirvana, in splendiferous tangle.

Bless us, bless this mess,

Bless our unruly propagation, let us shine for a time,

We lush out rush in blow out, as in a candle.

In the quiet between beats,

Between ripcord combustions in wild-eyed hearts,

Nine neurons short of nirvana, in splendiferous tangle,

We lush out rush in blow out, as in a candle.
