Dreams to Remember

Dreams to Remember by Otis Redding. This is how I enter my dream world...on the wings of velvet throaty tones, lyrics that observe the world without the satin sheets and post production values of manipulation. DO NOT DISCOURAGE THE VAIN FROM THEIR JOURNEY AMONG THEIR SORROWS! Otis beats me on the head with his Adam's apple language. Like a volcano I am emerging from a dormant period the subducted rock of my sadness slowly melting into magma that MUST ERUPT INTO ARCTIC WOLF MADNESS. Here you witness my desire for unattainable longings and flesh that once was warm and close and is now a million miles away and dreams I once gently guided with training wheel care into full growth but that have since withered into dry capers of agony and only through the milking of my weakened soul can i engorge them again to fullness and when ripe I align them with the unnamed stars in the sky. Otis, take my hand.

Collapsed at work after long bouts with high productivity. There is nothing there but arthritis and prostate problems there, discussions of the springtime we never had and the youth that has grown gray on my chin like a billy goat who nears death.

yes, it is true, even Otis fucks up, he has better songs, I won't fault you for your choice, but it is your choice, you have your destiny in your hands, no one is asking you to conform. Luckily for you, you have a direction, so fly seagull, fly. Tear down the next town. Migrate diametrically, you scorned bastard.

"Cigarettes and Coffee" is my favorite O.R. song but because it has associations with one curly haired woman I can not play it without tears.

No one asks me to conform but I'm asking everyone to change. And the futility of this makes me feeble. And my failures are my burden.
