A Flight of Ideas: Johnny

Johnny is soft around the middle but that doesn’t bother Pattie.

She nibbles some bits and waits for him to finish his show.

Pattie scrolls through the news:

“Today in an action reminiscent of the worst excesses of the
1960’s a feminist icon burst into flames!”

“Oh me, oh my,” Patti sighs, “I’m so nuts and so obnoxious!”

Johnny weeps with Miss America as Ms. Arkansas is crowned.

Ms. Congeniality stalks across the stage to snatch her check
from the emcee.

“I will use my beauty to feed the World!”  Ms. Arkansas sobs.

The crowd goes wild with sincerity.

Into the Pink

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

God is selfish with his stash
of bodies; he snatches us
away
without notice.
