Welcome back to the daily motions
Serving up lite fare—continental emotions
Going with the motions—no standard deviation,
Casual, every day, middle of the road type shit
That’s that basic bitch shit
Ain’t nobody got time for it
Where’s the zest?
How about the juice?
Where’s the sticky fun?
What happened to laying it down so thick, that
rich, buttery, maple syrup type of pleasure?
Making connections that open spaces in your mind
you never knew existed?
Can we get what they’re having at that other table?
They’re in elation state—a modern Eden
A kind of heaven
A soul-to-soul expedition
A heart-to-heart space odyssey
The daily motions have served them well
Now tell me:
what do we need to do
to get service like that?
