WSP 192 Ouroboros

from Weekly Song Project v2 by Jonathan Burks



hope is a skill much like any other
practice don't make perfect, it just makes
a problem comes loaded with solutions
love aint nothing but the total absence of hate

prayer goes up in myriad variation
in drink, in dance, in casual conversation
in each other's dream we sew our hopeful schemes
tail of the river, mouth of the sea
open circuit of mud and brine

those we've lost, the ones who've left us
here in our thoughts, in the air electric
in each other's dream we feed our hopeful schemes
one unit, cool and complete
in the wake of the second line

even though it's dark times in the kingdom
love and light ruled so hard tonight

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
