I AM DEAD

 

It was a Wednesday.

‘He’ didn’t feel like getting up.

‘He’ was cold to the touch.

It was a Thursday.

‘He’ felt like getting up.

‘He’ was too late.

Go out on the streets
Feel more real
Through music, through writing
Over-performing
I don’t like to repeat myself

Prodigy was one part of the rap duo Mobb Deep and an actor/author who achieved mainstream status across multiple platforms for his forthcoming persona with topics related to the Illuminati, Witchcraft, Reincarnation and much more.  In his song “Illuminati” off the album “H.N.I.C. Pt. 2” Prodigy raps about different scenarios and film plots that resembles the Illuminati; he is credited with bringing the Illuminati to the forefront of Hip-Hop in the 90’s along with Tupac Shakur.  Mobb Deep’s song “Real Power is People”, LL Cool J’s “I Shot Ya Remix” all mention signs of the Illuminati. 

Near the end of his life, Prodigy was working on a Broadway musical with entertainment journalist Kathy Iandoli about the Illuminati; his death from sick cell has raised conspiracies that he might’ve been murdered to silence his movement.  For his work within classic Hip Hop, Prodigy is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK

Satan In A Bow Tie

Dapper.  Crisp.  Resembles no one.

Arms race.  Chest caves.  Instant coffee sits idle.

Jazz darkness.  Lost in the hallway.

Righteous.  Wrong.  Thinks like everyone.

Background noise.  Trumpets sail.  Drinks gasoline.

It’s Satan In A Bow Tie.

Jim Morrison

Jim-Morrison-the-doors-29018208-1920-1200.00_00_00_00.Still001

Born December 8, 1943
Melbourne, Florida, U.S.
Died July 3, 1971 (aged 27)
Paris, France

Jim Morrison was an American poet, mystic, Rock n Roll vocalist, and hippie who transformed the 1960’s and 70’s subculture by introducing a psychedelic atmosphere to a genre overwhelmed with pop rock bands at the time.  He attended UCLA Film school in 1964-1965; in the summer of ’65 he formed The Doors with fellow UCLA student Ray Manzarek (Keyboard Bassist), Guitarist Robby Krieger and Drummer John Densmore joined soon after. 

The Doors name derives from Aldous Huxley’s book “The Doors of Perception” a psychedelic experience induced by drug-use.  Jim Morrison as known for his controversial antics on stage and he entered a stage of mysticism towards the later years of his life. 

DoorsofPerception

Poetic and yet violent in his inner emotions of a self-claimed “Revolution” Morrison took the persona “Lizard King” and mentioned instances of Native American Shamanism in his poetry.  In an interview on a car wreck of dead Native Americans he witnessed while on a road trip with his parents, Morrison said –

The reaction I get now thinking about it, looking back—is that the souls of the ghosts of those dead Indians… maybe one or two of ’em… were just running around freaking out, and just leaped into my soul. And they’re still in there.”

Jim Morrison died at the age of 27 while in Paris, and the theories regarding his death have lived on.  Jim Morrison is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

T.S. Eliot

TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK

T.S. Eliot

ts-eliot.00_00_00_00.Still001

Born Thomas Stearns Eliot
26 September 1888
St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.
Died 4 January 1965 (aged 76)
Kensington, London, England

Born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1888, T.S. Eliot was a poet, essayist and literary genius who helped stabilize British and American poetry in 1915 with his Magnum opus “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”.  T.S. Eliot’s symbolic approach to “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” leaves the door of the subconscious open to its readers and the analysis up for debate.  Originally titled “Prufrock Among the Women” the poem explores concepts of erotic sexual tension and denial; the intellectual status of Alfred Prufrock is questioned by Alfred Prufrock himself. 

T.S. Eliot lived in England most of his life and applied for British citizenship in 1927.  He produced very few poems; the majority of his poetry is spread-out and captures the various periods of his life.  He approached Christian mysticism and symbology in his later works such as “Four Quartets“.  T.S. Eliot combines attributes of Hindu God Krishna into Western mysticism in “The Dry Salvages,” a free-flowing launch into an aquatic journey of meditation; time ceases to maintain a sense of substance as the reality of one’s self is truly processed. 

For this work within the mystic realm, T.S. is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.
