Michael Dean Odin Pollock


readjusting to the world of savagry
after having tasted civilization
peoples workin as one in a community
the power is the collective
not carried by one

this experience such a gift rarity
monkey mouth zipped by the brevity
stars hangin low like a velvet cloak
the sepsis burnin
while de lamb in death throes

to love and know this
just one time
3 days 3 years i run outa time
hangin close with the villagers
lights in the eyes
of a ancient child

notes unite explode in the atmosphere
sonic boom in my heart
i hold so dear
all my inbred conceptions blown away
i arise to live
another day

dont know the language or the lingo
but yet we recognize
everthing we need to know
the nobal tribe
still lives and breathes
boujeloud kicks his heels

never will be captured
in word film or cd
maybe a indication
that can draw you near
the heart beats so strong
on the town square
i feel so gratefull
to have been there
