The Big One

You want it don’t you...?

You sit so still and quiet

But I can see the squirm

The raw need

The need to do something

The need to be somebody...



You know there’s a price right?

I suppose you have something to offer...

I mean... that’s why right?



And you’ll be good to people when you get there

Won’t you?

Just like all the people that came before you.

You’ll be a decent human being won’t you?



You want it don’t you...?

Don’t grab....

That’s not nice....

Didn’t your mother teach you not to grab

You know, for a moment there you looked like...



Raw need isn’t a pretty sight.

But it will do



Were you told you were a special child?

You were weren’t you?

It is a real drag when they lie to children.

Worse for the rest of us when that child grows up.



Now,

In the world of essential MLM

In the world of smoke and mirrors

In the place of money and power

In the place of finalizing dominating sex

You know you got to be a bottom...

If you want to be on top.



You don’t have to feel bad about what’s gonna be asked of you

It’s an acquired taste

And you will acquire it

Easiest thing in the world



And you don’t have to worry about what it looks like to the angels

Angels don’t come into it

You’ll be dealing with a different sort here

We like you that way



This realm

This plane

You want to play here?

Well

There is a fundamental reality

And a necessary stripping away

Of certain components that would interfere with

Your ability to play here



Certain notions you have to give up

Certain ideas about the right thing to do

This kind of thing can confuse you to the point

Where you will fail in this world

AND

Miss out on the other...



Now I know you don’t care about the other

Or you wouldn’t be talking to me

After all, you are in this world aren’t you?

Well then baby

This is all the world you need



So we need to just lighten up on the things

You don’t need in this world

The things that will hinder you and

Hold you back



The fact is

You’re either all the way this way

Or all the way that way

In between comes the thresher with the big teeth



Many many have come before you

And many more will come again.

It’s always the same thing

The system is solid

Either way.



You know when you have sex

It becomes a dining area?

Well, that’s not important for the moment



What you need is

That Chase advantage

You got to get

That Chase advantage



Got to

Sign up and let the big one suck you off



Sign on



Donors get in line

Let the big one suck you off this time



Plasma for the war...

Oh yea





I’m gonna let the big one suck me off this time

I’m gonna let the big one suck me off this time



Get that Chase advantage

Get ahead of the pack

Get the smell of the hunt



I’m getting hard in the pocket

Hey son, let me connect that socket and...ooooeeeee!!!



Let the big one suck you off this time

Let the big one suck you off this time



All the buyers and sellers

Of stuff and of self

Along with the bankers and brokers

And interceding priests,



All the consumers and the consumed

All the press and the products

All of everything that comes into form

All of the manifest that was ever born

Except

The except

But you’ll see the disclaimer at the bottom

And be sure and read the terms of use





All gonna suck a big one this time

All of them waiting at the front of the line

Waiting

Anticipating

That really big one

They’re gonna suck it all this time

Glory...glory...glory

Gonna suck a big one this time



Get that Chase advantage

Get that Rockefeller edge

Get the big one behind you

To push you off of the ledge



David’s got a cup of hot widows’ soup

Gonna foreclose on a few lifetimes

And get the big one to suck him off this time



One day when the kingdom is blazing

With that great big Fourth of July

And everyone understands just what they are celebrating

Maybe we could get the black hole in space

To give us a little real deep lung time

And there’s another in Calcutta that will

Work just fine

Ah, what the fuck-

And never mind



We’re gonna let the big one suck us off this time

Suck us off to notness

Suck us off with no forgiveness

And fuck us up the ass at the same time



Celebrities and wannabees

Get in line



Cause when the big one sucks you off

You have no regrets

Man, everyone forgets



When the big one sucks them off

When the big one blows Stardust on their horn

There’s only one selection on the jukebox

You can’t hear the breaking glass

Or feel the impact of the windshield

At the moment of the crash

Did I mention?

The big ones got your attention...



You are moving through the line

The Game Boy is your mind

Plugged into the action



You lost your taste for Campari

When you found out that Tinker Bell was a man



But you’re waiting in the darkness

With your pants around your ankles

With your passion in your hand

Dreaming of a kinder gentler land



With the big one hard at work

Yea! Oh yea baby!!!

HARD at work

Good and HARD

For this portion of this lifetime

Waiting on the big one

To blow you right the fuck out of childhood

And every tricycle it rode in on



Get that Chase advantage

Mr. Rockefeller gonna treat you just fine

No memory

No tomorrow

No highway left behind

The way they came is gone

They’ve formatted the mind

(At the prompt type Y. Warning, you are about to remove all data from your system. Do you wish to proceed? Oh yes, oh yes!!! Oh God Yes!!!)



Maybe just one cigarette

A few bobby pins

A lighter and

A subway token

No heart will be left unbroken



One hallway full of shadows

Wet concrete and the chittering of rats

Gunfire and weeping in the distance-

too great to define



There may be some disappointment

After

The big one sucks you off

Just turn your head and cough



And get that Chase Advantage

Get 0 percent Interest

No payments till the end

This offer will be repeated

Act today

Do it now

Felators are standing by

They’ll be kneeling in a minute

Everything includes everything

No waiting

No waiting

No waiting

No waiting

Fade...



So, you’re okay with that?

And you know about the quid pro quo?

You know once you get rid of those items

Nothing you do will have any further effect on you.



The reason we called you in

You look like you know

What’s going on

And you don’t mind



Now

Most people

We don’t even have to talk to them

They get right on board and

Don’t even ask where the train is going

They think the smoke trails are coming from the engine



But you’ve got management potential and

We think you can help us with the boarding

Make sure there are no empty seats

And every now and then you get to step in and be

The Big One

At the cosmic glory hole

And remember

You’re draining into your own bank account

And the financial apparatus that

Makes the whole thing move

And shake

And bake

And that makes all of us here

(I know I can speak for all of us when I say this)

That makes all of us here just

A little more motivated

A little more ‘into’ it

We’re all about satisfaction here



Some of our biggest customers are

Some of our biggest customers



See,

In the end

Either way you go

Whichever side of the helix

You got to get down on your knees

Either way

On the one hand

It’s just all about longing

On the other hand it’s all about getting to it

NOW



And keep in mind

Throughout

I’ll be turning into an angel

At the given moment

Be not deceived

Ode to “W”

Sumpin’ changing
Blowin in the wind
Smoke up ya ass
Crack the pipe
Suckn’ it in

Bitch Slappin
Lip smackin’
Supersize me baby

I’m lovin’ it
Wit all I got
And more
Bite out da ass
Of life’s sweet whore
Tongue-n roun da rim
Sweet jeezus save me
I’m fallin’ in

Kiss me baby
Full on the lips
Razor wire tongue-n’
Slip n’
And rip n’
Gimme summore

Grind ya teeth
Till there’s nothing more
Swallow hard
Gruntin’
Then I’ll show ya da door

Hits ya in the ass
On your way out

Bye Bye
Mutha fucka''

Brother Les,
Once again you say it so true that the harshness takes my breath away and I head off to try and get it back.
I found this in my e mail box the other day after writing to this man Randall and asking him the question.
"Does any of your attention go to the arising of the war in Palestine?
Does anger arise?
Does horror arise?"

The reply:
"Anything can arise - but is there a palestine or israel separate from what you are or what I am? Can Self or God or Oneness fight with itself, kill itself? Who stands apart as separate to be angry or horrified?

Love includes both relative love and hate, for "this and that". Peace means the openness for both peace and war to arise. And these are seen to be already the case once true violence is known - the illusion and ignorance of the belief of separation/individuality.

Yet even that belief is another perfect unfolding within what you are. So where shall we go from here?"

Osip Mandelstam (1891-1938)

What shall I do with this body they gave me, so much my own, so intimate with me?

For being alive, for the joy of calm breath, tell me, who should I bless?

I am the gardener, I am also the flower, In the world's dungeon I am not alone.

On eternity's glass already has settled, the trace of my breathing, my bodies warmth.

A pattern is being imprinted there, unrecognisable since recent times.

Let the dregs of the moment trickle down, the gentle pattern can't be wiped out.

Thank you Mr. L (or big D, as the case may be) but no thanks.

My siblings and I were always told by our mum how special we were.
For myself I didn't know how, until later in life.
However 'mum's' been dead now five years and my sister still can't forgive her for that.

Kinda late, here; but. . .

I find this the ultimate seduction:

Need nothing, own nothing, want nothing, know everything.

The Hell with superfluous celebrity, and the loss of privacy that comes with it. It helps to want to be around people if you crave that. Me? I VANT TO BE ALOOOOOOOOOONE!

Or with very select company, anyway.
