Just the Way It Is     ink drawing by    Marian Hollowell



Poetic vibe 

Also self-published as Good Vibrations
(no Beach Boy Insinuations)

Poetic vibes I forced on English teachers,
Potential girlfriends and shamans, forgive me.

Musicians, music lovers, never mind the common
Thread I bore you with, exploring my stitch.

Itís just the hook of an old theme I continue
To wear down and out, unaware that my itch  

Of universal tone and stimulation is not the vibe
That connects all rhythms of life, love and need.

The rare exception is my fantasy,
A lonely seed of an idea never shared.

My best vibrations are blown to the multitude
While every good urge came from you, my muse.

The words are gone but not the surge,
Feelings I refuse to let go still entice me.

Paradise shrinks to a mere closet,
A tiny lunchroom for moth and hanger.

Just once while the drumís still banging
I'd like to see you nearby as I close my eyes,

And when my solo is done, my love, you
Would still be there to hear it through.
