brian smith sent me a timely article that
some scientists have just postulated :
marijuana can cause a condition
known as semantic hyper priming …..
in which the mind matches words from a larger pool of possible associations
thus giving the stoned poet a bit of a jump on some sober rival
wow havent i been saying that for years …?
and it doesnt just do that for verbal concepts either….
some strange thing in pot can make certain artists
come up with new ideas across the board
i always said that like a switchboard getting all mixed up
parts of the brain speaking to each other that normally dont
yeah it works for some n not for others….
kids dont try this at home etc…..
insert your favourite caveat here
semantic hyper priming eh….?
well i’ll be a monkeys uncle typing out the complete works of shakespeare
semantic hyper priming…..huh….well one has to do ones bit for things like that…
you mean i wanna be the top poet in this town n theres something out there give me SHP?
SHP……..you kidding me
semantic hyper fucking priming why that is the wholly grail of your average jason rimbaud
why you smoke a lil’ THC n you got SHP…i mean ….LOL……
all them fuggen connections in my mind man
just like the time being man like he said the words coming off a roll in his skull
fuck my aunty warned me against SHP man
she said steven those words gotta come from somewhere man
no fucking way!

more fucking words than you can handle man if you aint dylan bobalaire
watch out! there should be a warning on neils purple heads
exactly now you think david neil did not exist then go back and listen
remindlessness done in 1989 and i sing of neils purple heads

just think …and is that why theyve banned it ..it wouldnt be fair..
imagine at the poetry playoffs …all them poets with artificially induced SHP
just freely associatin’ some fucken bullzshit

imagine meeting chicks inner bar i will say hey babe i’m a SHPer…
how about you babe hows yer vocab hows yer priming hows yer rhyming…?
