Mushroom Logic

Deep Thoughts

It’s not bad, the way of the mushroom.

living low, below the radar, out of sight

from the blistering sun.

hanging out in the cool damp


living large off the decaying and dead


feeding off the dead.

this is the right way

often times.

let the cypresses blow

in the light of day

let the tall pines hold

up the sky

while the mushroom workers

work their magic.

there’s a lot to do

there’s a lot to know

the mushrooms are the

synaptic nerves of the Earth.

the mushrooms do the thinking for the world.

and the dreaming.

keep dreaming.
