whatever your particular vernacular
i spit fantastic planet spectacular
speech patterns
solar rhythms
containing wisdom of the sages
and the sounds of ages
i can barely hold it all
within these pages
similar to putting lasers in cages
beautiful escape artist
manufacturing hard margins
for the marginal to conquer
maintain production
with my divine assembly line
i redesign on the fly
with the changing tide
even when i'm washed out
i am not boxed out
so i can rebound
leave it to the squares
to define my sound
never thought it vital
i should apply a title
i am a disciple of a full life cycle
Dylanesque style
if it is archetypal
simple comparison
i find hilarious
constantly lumped in
with all of the nefarious
simple minds
driven by a blind ambition
all short-sighted
by their own admission
selling yourself short
is outside of my realm of comprehension
even if i shifted
my mindstate drastically
all that i will ever represent
is life actually
my reality is drawn
from a deeper perception
blessed with immaculate reception
the voice is my weapon of choice
as i cut through the noise
and rejoice in public
leaving competition on the short side of nothing
prepositions predicated
on weak subjects
off topic when you embrace fuzzy logic
maybe i should hand out diagnostics
sorta like charitable contributions
forgone conclusion
is they will reject it
they won't even notice
how i disconnected
and found peace
while the times became hectic
