THE DAY AFTER YESTERDAY


















How now
brown cow
I want to live
in the NOW.

Yes
I'll live for the moment
that's what I'll do
and blind myself
to all the rest
like Mister Magoo.

Hey, that was a good one...
it just went by so fast
it eluded my grasp.

WHOOSH--there's another!

and another
and another
and another

Now I'm spinning round
snatching wildly at nothing.

HEY-- c'mere ya li'l sumbitches!

How can I know
what living in the moment is like
when the moment is passing me by
in the blink of an eye?


That's an enigma
wrapped in a riddle
topped with a sigh.

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow
all vying for space inside my brain
it's driving me insane
and that is truly a pain

in

the

ASS.

Don't mean to be crass...

but it's making me crazy
think I'll just have to pass
and not think about it anymore.

Yeah, that's the ticket!

I just won't THINK
about it anymore.

I'll just stay quiet
and close my eyes
and get into the lotus position...

Damn!

Gonna have to master
that lotus position
one day...

Well
no time
like the PRESENT...
heh heh

OHM...OHM...

  1. LOL. I actually did try to live in the moment, the day after yesterday.

    It went like this, "I'm walking, I'm walking faster....

  12. I'm totally with you on that, I will think more when I medidate than I ever think ...
    there is a way, doing very mundane things, you know vacuuming or anything of the kind, your mind goes in boring neutral then genius comes through

  13. Loved your comment about the birthday suit. I missed that. I think it's funny that the word "embarrassed" seems to say "I'm bare assed," which has relevance for my post and yours.

  17. __So many things to contend with... making you crazy, again, and again, and over again. Sometimes it seems like: You're the only fire-hydrent at the dog show!

  18. It's all one big NOW! Funny poem!

  19. very witty and smart. the levity and the short contemporaneous cliche blurbs did their job of keeping us in the NOW!!! the lotus 'thingy'was intended for long slim legged with 'nothing' in between species. i did it once then i woke up.

    gracias mi amigo (p.s. i thought a lotus was a sports car?)

  20. … so funny. If we actually lived in the moment - there would be no grudges, no revenge. Obviously we have a long way to go!
