A meditation on the structure of a punch

there’s a moment
almost immeasurable
when the heart rate increases
breathing becomes shallow
muscles tense
the eyes narrow in
a foot pivots
hips rotate
an arm extends
like a piston in
an engine at top dead center
that one connects with another
its damn near spiritual
bells ring
stars flash
and the chin music
is at full blast
this instant
is a zenith of higher existence
a transcending actualization
of objective truth
and one helluva lesson
in physics

Did i mention

kurt cobain and tupac
are still alive
o.j. didn’t do it
clinton was framed
the earth is flat
snow is chemtrails
this is proof
that the government
controls the weather
everything on the internet
has to be true
did i mention
o. j. didn’t do it
the moon landing was a hoax
marilyn manson can
suck his own dick
because he was
the other nerd
on wonder years
9/11 was an inside job
vaccines have
nano-bots inside
so that the government can
control us through autism
the holocaust never happened
oswald wasn’t a sole shooter
oh
did i mention
o. j. didn’t do it

Dog will hunt

how can you trust somebody
with no credibility
worship a god
that wants to see you
on your knees
live in a country
with no sense of community
where news isn’t news
its just conspiracy

there you are
parading around
in your tin foil hats
armed with your pointing finger
bumper sticker slogans
and unchecked emotions

so you want to make it
great again
blankets for the natives
cigars for the men

so you want to make it
great again
neo-nazi pride parades
and measles for the children

where is all the
accountability
respectful leadership
and responsibility

so you want to make it
great again
justice for all
equality for some

so you want to make it
great again
all lives matter
except for the muslims

where is the will
where is the way
where is the desire
for a better today

be here now
be here now
be here now
be here now
hear me now
be here now

The knife word

it is not your word
and it is not my word
it has been used forward
to put people backward
now it is their word
so keep your word
to keep it their word
because using that word
stabs like a knife

-JG

This doesn’t mean shit

we are fucked
teaching the latter
what morals is
using our accusatory questions
and assertive suggestions
for their maturation indigestions
leave’em alone
let’em grow
let’em to their own learnin’
enough bias turnin’
do not rob them of their ugliness
and replace it with your beauty
they are the threads spinning the fabric hereafter
beaten or moth eaten
they hold the treasure
we lost it to our banks
online stores
smart phones
ebay
threw it away
for abstract ideas
and monopoly money
and pre-packaged rebellion
i remember when listening to
marilyn manson was a form of insurgence
now i’m too exhausted
too sick of the mainstream
america has changed
america is full of different cultures and customs and skewed conceptions
too many exemptions for name callers and tattle tales
too many excuses for complacency
too many fucked up reasons to not work as a team
too many fucked up reasons to not agree
i’m done
this doesn’t mean shit
