There Is No Need To Believe by pd Lyons

What is discovered

is beyond doubt

what is discovered

is beyond choice

free from duality

is certainty

belief has nothing to do

with what is

the teacher shows

the steps

the student takes

the walk

the teacher shows

a way

the student who goes


there is no need to believe

Garbo’s Garage

No other reason
Than liked the ornament
Lush blob chrome

Streaming back
Noble savage
Put her mouth
Around it

No shelves
No Tools
No Debris
Velvet finish floor
Silver dollar oil spot
Otherwise dry as a bone

the ghost mother by pd lyons

Pdlyons's Explorations

the ghost mother


as if each son



upon this dominated land


sticks of war

lures of porno


after century


yet still there are some

knowing they are the mothers sons

dare to say –

i love you

J.C. Bluez, by pd lyons

from hook songs

Pdlyons's Explorations

J.C. Bluez

when Jesus was a little baby boy
sittin’ on his mommas knee
he said dear momma
(I) wish these people wouldn’t want to crucify me

now Jesus turned the water into wine
could make the blind man see
but he couldn’t change anything at all
when they hung him on that tree

so if you get to thinking
you gonna change the way things are
just remember the lesson of ol J.C.
before you even try

sometime when i cry, words by pd lyons, photograph by morgan lyons, music by Raveonettes



Sometime  I will surrender all the hard hear life

Sometime I will understand courage has nothing to do with anger

I will remember your face and smile

I will remember your touch and smile

Allowing just the experience of happiness

Allowing just that experience

Surrendering the need to go further

Staying just for the brief soft moment of love

Not needing the hard heat strength to go beyond


Queens 1985, by pd lyons

Pdlyons's Explorations

she dreams her grandfather tries to kill her with a knife

her grandfather killing a girl very bloody with a knife

hitting the walls until her hands bleed

it doesn’t matter

let them bleed

let me die

bacon I believe bacon I believe

Pdlyons's Explorations

Endowment for the arts

sometimes i want to take the words

light them on fire

spread their ashes

in the ocean

drink until

i cannot breathe

have you take the sea chnage

sun bleach

whirlwind bones

clean the last bit of cartliage

piss a piss of on the piss

all over them

cover them in mucilage

hang up on the wall

with a sign please place all tongues here

Poetry Reading


now that i have discovered

an empty heart

i am ready for anything

now that i have learned the fallacy of power

i am ready for anything

now that i know the only time

i am not alone is delusional

i am free
