The Real El Camino Real, part 5 of 7

Everybody I know 
The fashionable public 
People of means
People who come from money
People who are answers to yesterday’s puzzle
Be doing fine. 
While many people do undoubtedly,
The people who actually are 
From perhaps
To a growing number
Then countless, 
They’ve taken it worldwide.
And I feel the same way
The opportunity to be which
I seize like an acai bowl.

It looks super easy, but the beat go hard.
Anything worth having is worth working for.
Like God gonna give you all your shine at once?
So I took a massive data dump
In the distinguished toilet of the bullet train 
That runs through my brain
A million brands of strange intelligence
Threads, streams, 
Out of town scores
One loyalty program
I’ll never stop believin’
And it looks like you doing fine, too.

She shoots me this quizzicalistic look like
“If you got it, a truck brought it,” or
“My mother was Jerrold Anderson’s first wife.”

Any dessert for youuuuuuu?

Brava Company

“This sovereignty is expressed primarily by her body—the fabrics she wears, the pose she strikes…”  Zadie Smith


CAPRICCIO 

Tea taken with Utami,
How lovely it would be, and

To take it to Utami,
The Yoshitoshi portfolio, and 

To give it to Utami, the business,
(What will be the Japanese for that?!)
By the light of One Hundred Aspects of the Moon.


MUSIC CONTINUES

Gentle music.
Tense music.
Dramatic music.
Trippy music.
Suspenseful music.
Intriguing music.
Serious relaxed music.
Deep somber music.


STAIRWELLS

Of thin Moorish girls
Uh unh
Look at that
Oh my goodness
High waisted pants
Long black hair
They’re all
Smart and they bring
Capability, capacity and lethality
To the battle space that no other
Platform can provide.

The Mexican Limeliters


WILD ALASKA SALMON FOUND IN THE NILE

And other forms of denial.
The year before
I was like
Any fish out there? 


HERE LET ME TRY SOMETHING REAL QUICK

I don’t know how I do it until it’s done


COMMENCEMENT

Loose the screw
Put the plate
Tight the screw
Then click on sponsorship


WHAT CAN I GET STARTED FOR YOU?

Gonna do the number six to go.
Gonna have the green curry.
Usually it’s pretty good here. 
Like Wordsworth.
No actually make that a seven.
And let’s do the red curry instead.


THE MEXICAN LIMELITERS

Eduardo, Enrique and Jesus.
Mind boggling.
Eye popping.
Breathtaking.


WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE

Who’s this
Very sincere
Person here?


ADVICE

Whatever you
Do, don’t.

Twice as Powerful

There is no greater gift.
Inscribed with priceless wisdom
And twice as powerful
This is a dream come true.
Better for the planet.
Better for you.
And you can see where I’m going with this.

Save 59%.
5% cash back.
$200 bonus.
15x points.
Maximum out of pocket protection.
No payments for 90 days.
No hidden fees.

And we don’t stop there.
From the moment you order
Strength, balance and mobility
Surge into your system.
And we’ll pay the sales tax.
Plus, for a limited time only:
A limited lifetime warranty.

For me it’s like
Buy, see, try, start,
Take delivery,
Charge and go.
You can, too.
Risk free.
I mean look.

The ones in the actual driver’s seat,
The sheer on average number,
It makes you wonder,
It makes you think,
I get that.
No, I’m just saying
Lithium doesn’t grow on trees.

The Real El Camino Real, part 4 of 7

Torvald Helmer meets Shep Huntleigh.
It’s a warm night, there’s a full moon.

Shep says a new iZation is required
Industrial is dirty, civil is out the window(s).

Torvold says put that Tik-Tok down.
Tik-Tok is for closers.

Tribute mania season eight is underway!
I used to be Mr. First Nighter, remember?

“Deeply personal.”
“Vivid and heartbreaking.”

“Accessible and compelling.”
“A bold reimagining.”

“Forever moving the needle.”
“A note in the inside cover of eternity.”

But now, turning back into a person I never was,
My proceedings are perforce evasive,

Astride a teal seahorse,
Abound the blameless sea,

Baked into a ton of screens,
With justice served on a platter.

So get ready for new adventures.
Check it out.

How’s everything tasting?

Tipping Points

ALL NEW MATERIAL!

Now containing real stories!
Pivotal scenes!

Must see TikToks
Localized in the present.

Not true entirely
But kind of true.

Like I invented the 
Inflatable aircraft carrier.

The Navy’s being real petunias about it.
I sent them that email on Friday.

So I’m not super happy.
To illustrate this: Fuck you +.


ARCHAEOLOGIST

Could be a digital archive,
Missing files,
Incompatibility,
Whatever.
It came up 
No results 
For the name
 I was hoping 
To find.
Mine.


TIPPING POINTS

Early color
Forgot and left 
Their thinking cap.

Here hold my hair.
No need for us and the wildflowers.
Hi/bye. Exeunt.

ACTION STAR

Won’t you be my Action Star?


DONUT SHOP SCRATCHERS 

A new clinical study shows
What I don’t know 
Each day is disbursed 
Over two dozen hours.
Yeah. OK. So.
It wouldn’t surprise me
If in X number of years
I was like O.


HOW WELL?

Well before sunrise.


WHILE

One never stops wondering,
Two know for sure.


A BRIGHT OUTLOOK

But yeah
It’s just you know
Like I said
But the cool thing was

So so
Don’t worry 
About the
Uh uh

Syuri and I
Yeah 
In theory
Or in the cloud.
