Crystal California


Crystal California

I’m falling
falling
curiouser and curiouser
with no guiding white rabbit

My wonderland is plastic
it is a look
a fad
an attitude

People drowning
and believing the doctrine that asphyxiates them
is holy water

How to survive and see
amidst the blinding tie dye
How to look people in the eye
when their hair covers their souls

Is it Mother Earth
or is it just a mother
that moves spirits here

Can a crystal be a channel to spirituality
a piece of medicinal mineral
with untapped power to change the world to good

or isn’t it just a fucking rock
