Aprilia (Spring Awakening)

by Scott Utley





Good Morning, Viet Nam! If, what Hillary Clinton just said may be possible with the dissident


trying to be free in China, then the entire universe will have a remarkable excuse to


celebrate! In every galaxy on every planet in the infinite, beings will dance all night and


sing all day because it is proof that there is nothing more powerful than truth, and no-


matter the unbearable weight of suffering that is happening this very moment - for instance -


in places like our magical Egypt, or Syria or AmeriKa, for that matter, in the end we shall


be free – it is written. So, it must be so. So, did anybody see the news reel this morning


where the young female elephant at the national zoo in Wash DC plays the harmonica and knows


she is a star? The keepers claim she gives each song a beginning, middle, and an end, and she


always holds the note at the end in a big flourish. Well, they then proceeded to show her


actually doing it and I am blown away, it goes … it just goes … it just goes to show ya’, we


are not alone. In conclusion, if the scorching heat of love’s desire should sear my spirit’s


flesh, I shall dress it in a balm, made from the nectar of your soul. Yes! It is a good


morning in Viet Nam.

Good morning Aprilia, I think left up to my own devices I will edit and edit for eternity, in


fact, I think that is what eternity means. Don't know for sure, but I believe I have really


finished your poem, and this is the very final version:) It is a bit changed from what it


started as. Do you think so too? I need your opinion and advice on what to do next - so here


it is ...

What a fascinating, strange, humorous and sometimes terrifying monologue. Good stuff, man.
