Timothy Leary and Me
Image by Sean McCormick.
On the grass I lay, rising to the fall of pitch.
A sea of land, sinuous and rich - I fall. Side to
side, listening for the siren’s call.
Flag of mind, undulating in the breeze below my
eyes. Turquoise brooding vastness of blue hues
and darkened skies. Dreams of bending curves -
streaming heat and galaxies. I lay and watch,
as they zip by.
An incandescent masterpiece - aglow, beneath
a roof of mind; protected by the vitality of
weathered trees, stripped back - holding the
vastness, of the prairie seas.
Lying on the floor, watching from afar, just
beyond the orange glow of the open door, we
sit and drink a cup of tea, while listening to the
march of pink wheat and crickets -
just Timothy Leary and me.
