The Painted Porch

by Jonathan Burks



This is a song about my favorite interactive-podcast / art-project / philosophy-channel / wisdom-gym

The Stoa

I spent a lot of time here in the past year it's been extremely interesting and useful.

Today (Sunday March 31st, 2021) is the **Maybe the End of The Stoa Party** at 5pm central

you can RSVP here:



The Painted Porch

pop a squat, gather near
while we dialogue and cohere
around the flame of what's alive
on the edge of the knife
I caught the signal and I double clicked
opened up on a Chapel Perilous
nothing stands forever man
it's always now or never

a mighty ship, a stormy sea
den of saints, hot dorks, and thieves
strange times call for strange moves
a dance floor of wow and woo
a space claimed and held to take the realm
with ol' stew at the helm
deep code dialogos
afloat on a sea of thumos

it's not a place, it's not a thing
making sense don't need a scene
dialectic prayers carved in sand
shifting bits, emergent canvas
I needed a light, I found a torch
gathered up on the painted porch
it's always now or never
don't nothing last forever
