Midlife Crisis, Again

I AM LYING IN THIS FIELD,
WATCHING THE STARS SO
INTENSELY THAT THEY NOW
APPEAR TO BE OUTLINES OF
FROGS EVERYWHERE IN THEM. I HEAR THE RIVER CRY TO ME AS IT DID LONG AGO. IN MY YOUTH MY FORM WOULD FEARLESSLY CUT THE MIRROR AND I WOULD LOOSE MYSELF IN THE FREEDOM OF THE BLACK SILK WATER. NOW I FEEL STRANGE. WHY DID I COME OUT HERE? WHAT AM I LOOKING TO REGAIN? I KNEW THE ANSWER WAS SOMEHOW HERE. WAS THE GIRL IN ME STILL ALIVE? DID I NEED TO DO THESE YOUTHFUL ACTS TO SEE MY SPIRIT? ... ASKING MYSELF THAT I SUDDENLEY KNEW THE TRUTH. AGE WAS NOTHING AT ALL TO ME REALLY. JUMPING BAREASS INTO THE PITCH BLACK WATER WAS TO ME A SYMBOL. I'M GROWING OLDER. HOW SILLY OF ME TO HAVE FEAR, BECAUSE IT IS SO PERFECT... I DO SWEAR THOSE
ARE FROGS THOUGH

Subject: Time Travelers Please help! 4728
Hello, I am a 21yo M offering a $50,000 reward to help me take my life back. If you are a Time Traveler who has the Dimensional Warp Generator #52 4350a wrist watch, the XK memo replica or similar technology I need your help. I must return my mind to my former self so that I can take back my life which has been destroyed by the evil aliens. They have done Terrible, Terrible things to me starting with nanaprobe tracers, mind-transducers that she slipped into my food, and now I am fighting and dying of CJD. I have known two others who were messed with by these same evil beings, returned to there former self, foiled their schemes and successfully taken there life's back. If you can help please send me a (SEPARATE) email to::

It was a grey day, but that didn't matter to the trio of silver and pinky brown black aliens who decided to replace my old, web covered, juice stained brain with a second hand turbo-brain (TM)
gamma sequence device from Tea, near Karaba in the Jentok system, in space. It came as no surprise to me when they began siphoning my head goo out through my ears (in stereo for quickness) and collected said mess in tiny little pipettes shaped
like a small audience. You can imagine the nauseating sound of your own brain spilling into these weird urns and the smell! 2 or 3 seconds later I was asked a few questions, which I think was some kind of torture. There was no way I could answer them because I couldn't connect my mouth to my pummeled brain, and they knew this! But this turned out to be a test incase I had another brain lurking in my body which I was unwilling to supply. After the taunting I felt strange and indifferent, even callous, but I was tuned upside down and rendered inadequate. The top of my head was, well I can only describe it as being "screwed" off slowly using a tool that looked a bit like a dog's toy. This took several seconds but was not unpleasant due to the "drugs" I was given. Anyway, they replaced my brain with another but I didn't catch a glimpse of it so I can only marvel at their competent lobotomy skills from afar. They gave me a receipt for my new brain which is valid for 8 years and I'm happy with that.

My brain before was small. The aliens told me so. They are green and green is a very sexy color. It makes me work hard for them. I want to excel in everything I do for my alien friends. The work is hard and it makes me tired, but I do it with joy because the aliens need to rest and relax so their brains are in tip top shape. Not like my brain before. It was not in tip top shape. The aliens told me so. The tests they ran were very hard to
pass. They said no one every passes the tests completely, so I shouldn't feel bad that my brain was being replaced. They said the new brain is much better, and of course I agree with them. The new place I live in has no colors. The aliens say it helps my brain not get overloaded from extra sensory perceptions. All the colors and nice surroundings are reserved for the aliens. And they deserve it. They have the smartest biggest brains. I am finished telling you about my brain. It is new and improved. The aliens told me so.

Hold on to me now
And walk forwards.
There's no telling
Of tales along the way...
To me, love is
Hate and love
Mixed in one word-
If you don't have
The energy to hate me
You don't love me.

Kisses
are desserts
Eaten after an anxiety-filled
Meal.

Children
are little puppies
That grow into people
Like us-good and bad.
Children give you something
Obvious to do with your time.

Marriage
is the crucifixion
Of your old life.

Music
is an important excretion;
Important enough to make
The world go round.

Friendship
is hard to find.
People will flaunt their
Kindness but til souls meet
High above the world, they
Are never truly blent.

A soul is a person, a person
Who is somebody, who
Exists, who is alive,
A person who can see, breathe
And feel
And fly...

Life
is the time we have to
Spend trying to fly as much
As possible.
Let go of me now
Time to fly, Time to breathe...

Define some more
A CRUSH-a rush,
get to know, let me
show you who I am, show
me who you are

IN LOVE- to want-
you can't want what you
have, to be in love
can it be sustained?

NEED- does anyone really
need anything? you need
that which keeps you alive

LOVE-to want the best for
a person, to step aside
from your pride, to
make yourself vulnerable,
to lay it all on the line
MGF 6/3/02
