Tied-Up Tim

Before going on his afternoon walk, Tim spent the better part of five minutes trying to remember if he'd gotten high yet. He finally decided it was better to be safe than sorry.


"I'm not sure if there's much difference between worrying and praying."

"Praying is positive. Worry isn’t."

"It can be."


"What do you know?"

"That there’s more."

"Must be nice."

"It is."

"Would you mind praying for me to stop worrying?"

I was the ocean
Full and wet.
I rose and fell.
I sustained life,
Took it away.
Made weather rollick,
Honeymooners undress,
Full and wet.

I'm dry now
Arid and putrid,
A bone picked clean.

But my eyes still close and open,
Squeeze tears from tired lids
To wet my waking world once more.

But Forever...

Us versus them,
the universal dialectic.
You and me,
the impartial magnetic.

Turn down the fun.
Hedonism can’t bring
Don’t trust lust.

But in the end,
we must.

In the end...
If there's really such a thing.
If the earth stops spinning,
The universe won't.

What else would we want to be?
But forever...
