1950- 2012 on the Snake

Five Generations of the snake

That leads to the sea

Today I took that snake

To the sea

The smell of the salt

To grandmother’s house

The Hippies, incense and candles

As they hitchhiked to their utopia

Near Mulholland

The lonelier days of hitching rides

High as a kite on the road

The old VW bug

Where I nearly died after

Coming home from the snake

Body separating from its chasey

On Dumetz and Canoga

Hey ho with the Red Hot Chili Peppers

As we drive the

Labyrinth of pacific coast highway

Side streets viewing the vast pacific ocean

Listening to 1979[i] form the 1990’s

On the CD

But now making

Memories with my son

Cause we like to party[ii]

On the long snake

Garage sales and antiques

And our first sporting view of

The wild purple lupine of spring.

The Snake is the wild Topanga Canyon BLVD CA.

My kids like the Smashing Pumpkins… I use to throw pumpkins at the the band… yet it is a strange truth to this story… that does describe that early time… 1979… to the young nobody punks that no one fucking cared about… !! I  remember you all…

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
