The Chris Peditto Tribute Reading # 6-Elliott and Ruth

March 31st 006

 

 

Elliott and Ruth

 

words sounds music

words sounds music

dreams landing on runway eight

clear room! clear room!

 

poetry noises

poetry noises

nightmares being delivered to you

please sign here!  please sign here!

 

 

thoughts and feelings and stealings

cannot be sent by inter or outer net

by e or flea mail

by my tube you tube Dr Who tube

 

I want to  love the past and have the past be here next to me!

I want all my pasts for one more day again

lovers and booze and all night writings

I want to want to want to-

 

No, I’m here where I am now

not always the me I want to see

who is 

without the Tardes?

 

Elliott speaks in a different bouncing world

of different times lives countries

physical and spiritual imaged and flat

Let us listen now
