My revolution shows up unexpectedly

My revolution shows up unexpectedly
It’s not naïve but believes in miracles
Cannot be categorized targeted branded
Or even located
Offers prophecy not prescription
Is determined by mystery and ecstatic joy
Requires listening
Is not centralized though we all know where we’re going
It happens in stages and all at once
It happens where you live and everywhere
It understands that divisions are diversions
It requires sitting still and staring deep into my eyes
Go ahead
Love.
– Eve Ensler from “My Revolution Lives In This Body”

Come Monday

Lyrics by Jimmy Buffett

Headin’ out to San Francisco, for the labor day weekend show
I got my hush puppies on, I guess
I never was meant for glitter rock’n roll
And honey, I didn’t know that I’d be missing you so

Come Monday, it’ll be all right. Come Monday, I’ll be holding you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown LA haze and
I just want you back by my side.
Yes, it’s been quite a summer, rent a cars and west bound trains
And now you’re off on vacation, something you tried to explain.
And darling since I love you so, that’s the reason I just let you go

Come Monday, it’ll be all right. Come Monday, I’ll be holding you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown LA haze and
I just want you back by my side.
I can’t help it honey, you’re that much a part of me now,

(Lyrics by Jimmy Buffett from the Album ‘Living & Dying in 3/4 Time’. Probe (EMI) ABC Records SPBAA-3070, 1974.)
