Screaming at night

Postby Orbie » Sat Nov 21, 2015 11:06 pm

Wake up chile wake up says momma
There is fire outside,

Wake up chile, there is snow outside,



momma picks up child, places it in crate head first, and legs stickin out,



Screams in night.


Night is forlorn, whistles cold wind through grey bare
boughs, tumbleweed mixed with snow



Forlorn Route 66, no one headin Vegas way,
remember momma with little chile in tow,


In that dodge monarch thinkin of the golden west, packing up,



And hit the road that bizarre January day back in 67?


She strained carrying the box, the pedal to the
medal, huffing and puffing I'll blow your house down


Through byways, new visions, lost bud, friend,
Crossing the eternal Unknown, again hitchin to new
lands on jus' a whim, cause doc says to momma,


then, gotta go clear them sinus, and she packs a big oil suitcase full of stuff,



New lands, sunshine, will clear momma's emphisema

Momma will love, sing and dance isn't the sunlight,



Momma will cook up a storm for her little thing,
Her tiny tike, some gravy and a bird steamin like them meals u used to envy of little Eva,her eating good then winter, of our discontent,




No need that Europe thing, for remember Juliet from Montreal beset homesick all of the time,?


Sold the cow and the pigs, took 'em chilen back, her man did say no good momma,
You won't make it too much water under river to pass


That way, so he stays, waiting for her come back , Sad Charkie, the come back kid, whistling I the wind one fine spring day cut tin' down toward town, with Gasoline in her pocket Corso the clown remembering old Italy, sole Mia,


& another woman caught his eye and went with her
to the desert, and the woman there suffered some kind

breakdown or other, tries to come back to her man but they won't let her, where's Tommie , she bemoans, loud clicks the wary going, quickly, now'
,
go, let's, go, (first ever book 'Go')



,
This begin' communism, as when Burroughs on stage not fCing audience but sideways, says he has no read the Canto-s,say whhhhhat?




an all, they say she stays and she stayed, but with know one to talk, and her chile in the new army the commies got and inducted precious tommy, but Tommy too smart,


subscribed, she gone and went insane. She wrote to her man, but he ain't answering,

He is with the other woman.

So chil, let this be example, were headin to the west,

New lands, new hopes, and yourse so cute, some
One will strike your fancy wait and see. You'll wait an see.


Now she's seen wondering on main and third hangin at where the OK' bars stayed fire them theaters
turned into churches, and she'll never know of her
baby, cause one winter he wondered away barely 6 and this place was usin kids for profit, but she drank too much that night and the week after to get out of
bed. (While curve ball playin' on turntable)


Now she's double sad, and waist in away, thinkin what happened to jay bird. Could've gone the other
way, but the Lord provides, no worries have feelin her
is in good place.

God bless you momma.

In answer to your prayer
sincere, the centre of
your circle here,
i stand ; and , without
taking thought,-
i know nothing. But i can

Full well your need-as
you be men
This: Re-Creation. With a
bow,
Then, your obedient

servant now.
One gift is all i find in me,
And that is faithful
memory
