The Illimitable Ocean of Inexplicability

On the cusp

.

What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs

-Mathew 10:27¹

.

.

This is it!

or

this is one of those things

one of those

events

that passes us by

with little notice

just a laugh

a shaking of the head

a sigh

“What foolishness”

we say

but

things are changing

mark my words

things

are

changing

I still have my concerns

From this date forward I will no longer be greeting folks with a handshake

message

I will now be using the fist bump. I suggest familiarizing yourself with the art of the fist bump if you wish to one day make my acquaintance. There are tutorials available on-line.

Get set

We’re gonna show you

criminals at their worst

and cops

at their best

Los Angeles

(where the cameras are always rolling)

I’M SHOWING MY SPEED AT 100 MILES PER HOUR

JUST TO KEEP UP WITH HIM

this felon is

only 3 months out of prison

but

from the way he drives

this stolen pickup

he’s anxious to go back

NOW IN THE LEFT HAND TURN LANE

ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD

THERE’S PEDESTRIANS

HE JUST MISSES A PEDESTRIAN

the country is glued to the screen

as the suspect

circles his neighborhood

then he drives by his house

where

his sister

makes a desperate plea

for him to surrender

SOMEONE IN THE ROAD

RIGHT THERE

TYING TO STOP

THIS PURSUIT

SOMEBODY

IS CONFRONTING THIS VEHICLE

RIGHT HERE

SHE TRIED

TO GET INTO

THE VEHICLE

millions of viewers gasp

as the man peels out

leaving her

sprawled on the pavement

the man

rages on

even

as the truck disintegrates

it takes over an hour

for the abused vehicle

to fall apart

OH,

THERE GOES THE TIRE

THERE GOES THE TIRE

HE’S RUNNING

ON THE RIM ONLY

AT THIS TIME

but the man

keeps going

HE’S BOXED IN HERE

OH,

HE SMASHED

INTO A VEHICLE

next

he commandeered a van

the startled driver

told us about

his experience

he said

“get out”

and before I knew it

he was in my van

sitting on top of me

he’s steppin’ on the gas

and I’m steppin’

on the brake

I was watching it

on the tv

and

I was getting ready

to go out

for an interview

and

I want to see the outcome of it

so

I put my vcr on

HE’S CARJACKING ANOTHER VEHICLE

as I was going out the door

my mom says

“now don’t get caught up in that chase”

just kidding around

you know

THE VEHICLE’S GOING

NOW

THIS IS A HOSTAGE SITUATION

he said

“get out”

then

I told him

my seat belt was on

I couldn’t get out

then

he opened up the door

and shoved me out

my arm was still caught

in the seat belt

that was shocked like

you know

what happened

cuz it happened

so quick

the suspect races on

completely out of control

HE’S HAD TOTAL DISREGARD

FOR THE RED LIGHTS

OH,

LOOK AT THAT

TRUCK

JUST BEING TOSSED

AROUND THERE

and

the more he tries to hide

the more cameras find him

the suspect

an obvious threat

to everyone on the road

heads for

one of the busiest sections

of the city

the airport

choppers have to back away

from air traffic

when they move in

again

they mistake

this van for the suspect

OK

I’VE LOST HIM

but ground crews

are unshakeable

NO

WAIT A MINUTE

NO

THERE HE IS

OK

THE SUSPECT

IS NOW

SOUTHBOUND

THE SUSPECT

VEHICLE

IS

NOW

SOUTH BOUND

then

as night falls

police

get an alarming message

WE’RE NOW HEARING

FROM THE DISPATCHER

THAT THE PARTY

WILL SHOOT THE POLICE

THAT’S

WHAT HE TOLD HIS MOTHER

HE WILL

SHOOT THE POLICE

they prepare to ram the vehicle

but the suspect dodges

their every move

he accelerates

to almost 100 miles per hour

and then he loses it

OH

THE VEHICLE’S OUT OF CONTROL

the van skids

into the freeway wall

two tires are blown

THIS

IS GOING TO COME

TO AN END

RIGHT HERE

SUSPECT

GETTING OUT

HE’S GOING ACROSS

THE CENTER DIVIDER

THIS

IS

VERY

DANGEROUS

HE’S RUNNING

ACROSS THE LANES OF TRAFFIC

AND THE OFFICERS

ARE RIGHT BEHIND HIM

but

the unrelenting suspect

hits a chain link fence

and the police

stop him

dead in his tracks

THERE HE IS

YOU SEE HIM

HE’S ON THE GROUND

in a city

where stars are born

fame can be instant

even for the victims

incredibly

no one

was seriously injured

and

the police

got their man

a terrifying news event

caught live

on camera

Ask and ye shall receive

I asked the man at the record store “If you see a copy of the soundtrack for 8 1/2 I want it” He said “If I see it I’ll put it on the wall for you”.  Today, it was there

.

.

.

.

.

I am sure there is

.

I am sure there is. I have never had any doubt.

And, may I say

it would be grand to sit down with you at some time

(in the future)

and hear all about it.

There are those who’ve said

.

And we have listened,

oh, how we have

had an earful really

on and on you go

telling us

it can’t be done

well?

what’s this then?

c’mon

let’s hear it now
