"A Comet Appears"

One hand on this wily comet,
Take a drink just to give me some weight,
Some uber-man I'd make,
I'm barely a vapor

They shone a chlorine light on,
A host of individual sins,
Let's carve my aging face off,
Fetch us a knife,
Start with my eyes,
Down so the lines,
Form a grimacing smile,

Close your eyes to corral a virtue,
Is this fooling anyone else?
Never worked so long and hard,
To cement a failure,

We can blow on our thumbs and posture,
But the lonely is such delicate things,
The wind from a wasp could blow them,
Into the sea,
With stones on their feet,
Lost to the light and the loving we need,

Still to come,
The worst part and you know it,
There is a numbness,
In your heart and it's growing,

With burnt sage and a forest of bygones,
I click my heels,
Get the devils in line,
A list of things I could lay the blame on,
Might give me a way out,

But with each turn,
It's this front and center,
Like a dart stuck square in your eye,
Every post you can hitch your faith on,
Is a pie in the sky,
Chock full of lies,
A tool we devise,
To make sinking stones fly,

And still to come,
The worst part and you know it,
There is a numbness,
In your heart and it's growing.

In some ways this thread seems to act as an earworm exchange programme.

I come in here to deposit my current earworm - and I leave with one of yours ... I now have Back in a Hole running throgh my brain.

Which is ok - because at least it dislodged the song that's been on a loop in my head for the last 2 days. The music for the film Jumping off Bridges:

Flanagan & Allen's "Run, Rabbit, Run" - ever since I posted that damn rabbit video over in the "Wildlife, Living Next To Nature" thread...

What I love about this song is that is celebrates the mundane. It's rather zen in a way, it reminds me of my teacher quoting Dogen: "Those who regard the mundane as a hindrance to practice only understand that in the mundane nothing is sacred; they have not yet understood that in sacredness nothing is mundane."


A police car and a screaming siren
A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
A baby wailing and stray dog howling
The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

A smash of glass and a rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Days of speed and slow time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up at six am on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquillity of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

I was against the baby boomer canonization of Brian Wilson, but it's been like 3-4 weeks since J so thoughtfully took us to the biopic "Love and Mercy", which is amazing, and goddamn, all I have to do is think of it. Is there no more timeless melody than this? There's just something about it. It's glorious and uplifting and yet slightly unresolved. The kid hit it out of the park. So canonize away. He deserves it.

Agreed! I played God Only Knows for a friend the other night.

And, just because on account of because it perfectly came up as the next track on the CD in my car at just the perfect moment for it to come up, without me having a clue it was coming...this has been on my mind:
