about

Jammin from willEYEspeak, 9/23/16... by now a familiar weekly ritual (not always recorded). Makin music opens the door to the possibility of creativity... just jump into it, see what happens, always inerestin.

tossUP btw references randomness, improv, like flipping to the next card, opening a book at random, running into synchronicity.

"Pencil Almighty", an oil painting is the cover art

Track Name: Make a Map Too
Livin on the edge don't help when you go all stiff forever
livin straight & narrow don't help your goodbye forever

when you go unconscious do we celebrate or do we weep
or do those of us with riches keep our minds on other things
we could do a eulogy wouldn't that be nice
just like on your birthday we could hold your name on ice

and since you're out ahead of us you might sort of smooth the way
you might sort of smooth the way through the deep grass make a path
through the deep black make a map

2.
if you find the graveyard is cluttered with old bones
take heart that tho you're worm's meat your molecules may roam
we will visit sundays picnic on the site carry wreaths of flowers but
never come at night

and since you're out ahead of us you might sort of smooth the way
you might sort of smooth the way through the deep grass make a path
through the deep black make a map

3.
you will find us shortly residing where you are
will that be unearthly embedded in a star
will there be some punishment are there sadistic gods
or is there simply nothing dissipation in a fog

and since you're out ahead of us you might sort of smooth the way
you might sort of smooth the way through the deep grass make a path
through the deep black make a map

Livin on the edge don't help when you go all stiff forever
livin straight & narrow don't help your goodbye forever
Track Name: Philosophic Thief too
There's a ball of fire where I call the east
that means it's early morning take we now our feast
half way thru a meeting put it up a chart
I feel like I'm bleeding circling as shark

2.
scratching on a lottery drop it in the trash
is this to be my destiny watching my dreams crash
underneath a gas light European street
longing for an insight philosophic thief

3.
in a sector of my brain a vague and smoky thought
nudging me to look again at where and how I'm caught
somewhere otherwhere than here nothing happens fast
something in the spinning spheres generates the past

4.
the nature of reality at which we cast words
such as this, frequency love the only verb
Track Name: Now It's Now too
I used to want to sail out on the open ocean
do some craggy steep climb vertigo incline
be some hero soldier daring under heavy fire
sweep in low a' straffing tracers enemies laid low

now it's subtle now I'm after now this subtle now is ample

2.
I used to picture me in 3-piece suit and ty
German helmet sleeveless leather Harley roaring on or
counting rows and columns daily into my old age
pace 8 by 8 steel cell serving ten to twenty years

now it's subtle now I'm after now this subtle now is ample

3.
I used to wait to perch in rocky cliff and snipe at posse
take a rubble city hand to hand door to door or
crest hundred foot waves on Maui wind and spray or
ride the biggest roller coaster parachute

now it's subtle now I'm after now this subtle now is ample

4.
I used to wanna ski down mountain slopes of pure white snow
plunge deep water wet suit glamour barracuda lair
live in twenty bedroom splendor thousand dollar plates
strut upon a stage of limelight Hollywood marquee

now it's subtle now I'm after now this subtle now is ample

5.
I used to want complete approval from all Gods & men
and the items there at Walmart warehouse water proof
soaring thru the high sky first class 30,000 feet
satisfied to snap my fingers summon certain bliss

now it's subtle now I'm after now this subtle now is ample
