Just a passing phase

Okay, Evil MicroGoogleSoft Blogger won't let me upload my second set of pix from Wonderland, and I'm off to (Hooray) New Joisey (The Strip Mall State) for the weekend, so before I left I thought I'd take care of this. Three times over, and out!

1. I've got a little black book with my poems in.
2. Got a bag, got a toothbrush and a comb. (ya better believe it)
3. When I'm a good dog, they sometimes throw me a bone in.
4. I got elastic bands keepin my shoes on.
5. Got those swollen hand blues. (that too)
6. Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from.

7. I've got electric light. (how many phds does it take?)
8. And I've got second sight.
9. Got amazing powers of observation. (mmhmm)
10. And that is how I know - When I try to get through - On the telephone to you - There'll be nobody home.
11. I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm. (mary!)
12. And the inevitable pinhole burns - All down the front of my favorite satin shirt.

13. I've got nicotine stains on my fingers.
14. I've got a silver spoon on a chain.
15. I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains. (and how cool is that)
16. I've got wild staring eyes. (really)
17. And I've got a strong urge to fly.
18. But I got nowhere to fly to. (except joisey. for now.)

Happy.

Amusing, very amusing.

km:

mt:
poetic license (and i didn't want to give *too* much away ;-)

TR: I think Salil was refering to Jersey being the armpit of the US (Like the Bihar to India relationship).
Try not to put that silver spoon to use when you're down there.

thanks for visiting, raghav, and for the positive thoughts. the theme of flying is actually a recurring one on this blog, and it usually occurs in the form of a rant about how much i dislike it :-) (eighteen hours again day after, sheesh.)
