WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU ...
getting the rest of the poem / rap / word piece / song?
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU ...
getting updates?

If you're enjoying the piece, if it'sright for you,
likely you'll get one of the greatest things -
more connection to yourself.

And by getting updates,
that should bring even more.

Ongoing connection -
one of the most important things in life.

****

Most of the time on the web, you kind of surf, browse,
don't stop long enough to make any connection.
Most of the time, you don't want more.
It isn't for you. Or you've had enough.

In that case, time to go on.

But at other times, you want to be able to stay in touch,
so you bookmark a site. And most of the time you forget about it.
Even if you go back, you don't know what's new.

****

What's in it for you,
to take a chance on a longer connection?
Most people want more satisfaction,
more creative energy, more ...

You don't get more by staying with surfing.
You get that with a stronger connection -
the right stronger connection.

And of course if it doesn't work for you,
you always need to be able to leave for good.

****

Why might you want to hang around here?.

All my life I've cared about tapping into creativity,
expressing creativity,
bringing out creativity and deeper feeling.

That's what more connection can bring.

No guarantees.

Some things in life can't be guaranteed,
even if we'd like to have a guarantee.
So I can't guarantee total satisfaction,
or even satisfaction.

What can I guarantee? You can always leave. Easy exit.
No clinging or whining. Who wants that?
You're here as long as you want to be,
if it suits you, as long as it suits you.

If you decide to stay, it's because you're getting things,
because you like what they're getting,
because you find satisfaction and more of yourself.

****

I've learned to expect the unexpected -
twists and turns and adventures -
so definitely can't guarantee
sameness, stability, more of the same.

But is that what you want?

****

Or would you rather have what I call
attempts at word magic -
words that bring moments to life.
Moments lived, moments now, moments past,
and maybe also moments never encountered.

There's no certainty in this.
I can try to listen for words. I try for word magic,
the magic of words that brings moments to life.
But I sure can't guarantee alive words, magical words.

Abracadabra would be great.

But this attempt isn't predictable.

****

So the offer is to come along on this adventure,
an adventure into attempted word alchemy.

The invitation is:
if this attracts you, come along.
Welcome.

****

Are you still wondering, lingering,
tempted but not sure if you will be those to come along?
Are you wondering, will you get stuff that suits you?

Time will tell.

Time will tell if this chance at more is right for you -
more tapping into yourself, more stimulation,
more thinking, more feeling, more creativity.

Anyway, that's what I offer.

The rest is up to you.

If it suits you, welcome.

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
