Memories of Paco's

Poetically speaking, the old Paco's Cantina (on Broad Ripple Avenue) was one of my favorite spaces to work. The food was good, they had free refills on coffee and soda pop, and most important - it was open 24/7.
Kyle Andrews and I spent many nights writing poetry there. One Sunday night we arrived at 10 P.M. and left Monday morning at sun up.
As is his style, Kyle wrote his poems on napkins. When he finished, he had accrued about a four-inch stack of them. Here are two of the inspired works from that night:

Socrates said Search,
Lao Tzu said leave me Be-
They took a walk, through everything
And wound up here in me-
Jesus faced the desert
Buddha faced the Khan-
They found their way within
Still we Keep movin' on-
We ran into St. Andrew
Who had St. Francis as his guide-
So with my friends I say to you
You are always welcome-Inside-

My guides are your prophets-
          they tell me what to do-
They give my life direction-
          they tell me-follow you-
Where you choose to take me
          is solely your discretion-
So I will expand within you
          in a pure love resurrection-
                    I'm ready
                              When you are-
