Kicking Down Doors

comment

“January Ice” – Whitney Avenue – Wilkinsburg, PA

When one door closes… Kick that mother fucker to the ground…
A mind is a terrible thing to hide behind a crown…
Dreaming minds define… Faded memories and signs…
Heat waves rise to distort the double street lines…

Abandoned houses in waiting against a blood red sky…
An evening of dreams lost when the mourning doves cry…
Under blue skies… Under the dust clouds calling…
Even an evil man cries to God when he’s falling…

Motivation is relative… Reincarnation a daily occurrence…
Hell is the most powerful of the man made deterrents…
Justice is a fallacy… Recovery is a monetary system…
Criminal is what they call it when we attempt to resist them…

Stand tall and prepare to defend the beliefs you find right…
Nothing in the world changes without a peaceful fight…
Heaven is in your mind… The sweet flesh beneath a rind…
We all cry to our own God when life has us in a bind…

    Hey Chris–no posts since January!?!? Didya hear about the city changing the zoning laws to facilitate livestock/ag in the city? It occurred to me, that with all those empty/soon to be empty lots in Wilkinsburg, it would be a great initiative for them to embrace urban ag in a big way, including pasturing goats (and sheep and pigs??) on some of that land! What do you think?

  3. Am punching the air and yelling yes as I type this (well, figuratively anyway). I’d possibly substitute pumpkins, potatoes or parsnips for petunias but that’s just nitpicking and petunias makes for awesome rhythm. Thanks for sharing.
