A Suite of Poetry by Ayuo – So you want to be a philosopher

So you want to be a philosopher by Ayuo

So you want to be a philosopher
You want to prove that your theories are absolute
So you try to eliminate everything that may prove you wrong
But that will also eliminate you.
———————-
The opposite of you by Ayuo

The opposite of you
Exists within you
You always see it on the outside
In projections of shadows attacking you.
As the shadows attacking you.

When you fall in love
it’s with an image existing inside of you.
And you project them outside you

What you love exists within you
And you project them outside you
As images of loved ones and idols

You see the world
As you expect to see it

You became conscioius of it
When you became six
And it grew to be come you

———————–
You talk to images by Ayuo

You talk to images
You assume people to be
The charactors in your nightmares and dreams

People are never what you think they are
For you cannot see outside yourself
You only feel the common denominator
———————-
Words are only poetry by Ayuo

We think
We believe

We don’t want to be caught without beliefs.
Inside , we think we know
And we want to believe
But our words are poetry
Metaphors of things in reality
And you say to me
I believe

Well I want to believe

——————

Life isn’t one man’s dream
We see with different eyes
We see from different view points
Nothing is the same

So we speak in metaphors
No direct answer to questions profound
No dogmas
Nothing remains the same
Not even same words.
——————

life is about learning
life is about knowing
life is movement

ikiru to ha mananndeiku koto
ikiru to rikai shiteiru koto
ikiteiru mono ni ha ugokiga aru

life self-organiizes itself
To the energy flowing through itself
————————-

when you say
i love you
you mean
i want to be loved

to be protected
to be fed
like when you were an infant

———————-

sex is bacterial exchange
sex began with cannibalism

i eat you
you become a part of me
and you are mine

sex is possession
sex is aggression

sex is not reproduction
sex is not love

i want to eat you tonight
he says
but she sucks away his lifeblood
and he is drained of whatever power he once had
—————

You cannot hypnotize someone forever
One day the bind breaks
And he will never again accept your will

Your politics falls apart
Your religion crumbles
And your thoughts
Become pieces of paper
Burned in the winds of time
——————-
There are morals
There are standrards
And we only follow them
So society is not upset
————-
Even the wildest of fantasies
Follow a formula
You may not notice them at first

With so many cultures
You’d expect more variety

We see patterns of a tale
And the tale is repeated again and again
And when we become
The out side people
We are the observers with a microscope

Poetry by Ayuo – A part of me, you are

A part of me, you are by Ayuo

A part of me, you are
extended from what i was

The universe gave us life
We are always a part of this
The universe gave us life
We are born
We give life
And we pass it on
From a leaf, a new leaf is born
And the older fades away
While protecting the newly born

A part of me, you are
Extended from what i was

Thoughts may change
Words may change
But you are always
A part of
The constantly evolving universe

We are surrounded by thoughts
From those who existed beforre us
From those who seemed insignificsnt
While we live, we are often decieved by the superficial
And the charismatic.

There are those who have knowledge and show it
There are those who don’t have knowledge but pretend
There are those who have knowledge but don’t show it
There are those who understand the words of one who has knowledge
And those who follow what seems to be brightly lit.

Poetry by Ayuo – Words are symbols

Words are symbols by Ayuo

Words are symbols
They come from gestures
There are no magical sounds
Unless you add meaning to them

You want to hear stories
There are people you want to be
Adventures that opens your horizon
Places you’ve never been
And places that don’t exist

People to act out your fantasies
That are too far away to be real

But stories have their own patterns
And people repeat the same stories
Over and over in different settings
Meanings in words may differ in different cultures
But I began to wonder
Maybe for us humans
There are only a few set of story patterns
And we simply continue to put them in different settings
Over and over again.

Then you realize
There are no places that don’t exist
There are no people you don’t know
Because you see them from the limits of your mind
People are storytellers
And in their heads are the patterns of stories
With which they see the world

Poetry by Ayuo – Emotions are tools

emotions are tools by Ayuo

emotions are tools
people use them to try to move someone

perhaps you too are moved by emotion

Don’t make judgements on people
Making judgements limits one’s potential

don’t listen to criticism
they are there to make limitations

whatever criticism you say about someone else
is always about yourself
you can only see negative parts of yourself

all you see
is an extension
of what you understand
the world to be

and the way of the world
changes with your viewpoint

マインドフルネスのパロディー版、マインドレスネス

Mindlessness Development — one of the best self-help books out there

https://www.amazon.com/Power-Then-Mindlessness-Charming-Petites-ebook/dp/B002C759GY/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1477244031&sr=1-1&keywords=power+of+then

マインドフルネスのパロディー版、マインドレスネス(つまり頭カラッポ。)かなり笑える本。真面目にやっている方にはごめんなさいね。人に推薦されたので、マインドフルネスをサーチしたら出て来た。悪気はありません。ただ、あまりもおかしかったので。時々、見て笑うのも良いかも。

GenomeによるDavid Bowie Tribute ”Ziggy Stardust” 全曲ライヴ

10月6日は渋谷公園通りクラシックスでの私たちのグループGenomeによるDavid Bowie Tribute ”Ziggy Stardust” 全曲ライヴに来て頂いてありがとうございます。
音楽評論家の関口義人様のフェイスブックのぺーじからの言葉です:
『19:00 渋谷公園通りクラシックスでAyuo & GenomeによるDavid Bowie Tribute ”Ziggy Stardust” 全曲を再演するという試み。めちゃくちゃカッコいいサウンドでした。名曲揃いのアルバムだけど素晴らしい再演ぶりに感嘆しました。ダンサー、Nashaalを含む5人編成から放たれるサイケでロックな80分の饗宴空間。次回はPrince Tributeだそうで。また行きます。守屋さん(b)立岩さん(ds)とスモールトーク。こんなバンドはほかにはない!』
写真は中野純英様が写して頂いたものです。
ありがとうございました。

Photos from the Ziggy Stardust show by Fred Myers

From Fred Myers’ Facebook Page:

In the 4th staging of the ‘Genome series’, the flamboyant & androgynous David Bowie was highlighted: the last performance (1973) as his stage alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Glam, hard, art rock.
Ayuo Takahashi (vocals, guitar, dance)’ Junzo Tateiwa (drums)’ Makiko Seo (piano, keyboard), Nashaal Naho Baba Barbara (dance), & Takuyuki Moriya (bass) gave powerful performances that included their own creative additions. Wow
