    i move through the night
    bursting the blistered sac of conformity
    follow music until it erupts out of trance-dance
    let the mushrooms play latino riffs
    on this amazon moon, &
    never underestimate the power of ghosts
    even for a skeptic
    there’s magic that refuses to budge

    dorothy checked out of this hotel years ago
    believing it was all a sugar-junkie’s dream
    but i flung my red shoes into the river
    found it’s better to dance the vision
    with burning feet
    than to tiptoe through the glitterati’s minefield
    collared & sequinned like paris h
    even for a dreamer
    there’s reality that refuses to budge

    reality that slides into focus
    like wood under fingernails
    a caress
    that allows exquisite abandon…
    there’s no place like home

    I've met Buddy before, that guy is the truth.

    Its not spoken word, but its one of the best contemporary poems authored, well worth the listen.
