assume

Don’t make assumptions if you can avoid it.

sneeze

Ugh this season. Sneezing and sniffling all the time it seems. Occassionally I go into bothersome fits – sneezing again and again and again. The sneeze is a curious thing though, for how it feels. In so many ways it feels nice – like a great release.

bars

Bars of a prison cell: cold, dark, oppressive. They hold two worlds apart. Two worlds so different – yet with the same men in them. They are granfalloons – there is no difference.

Cool brown bars of dark chocolate – wrapped up in shiny foil and wrapping. Opened, carefully, and consumed.

gym

I was never a fan of gym class. The teacher was a borderline neo-nazi. I’ve seen her at the local rallies with her flannel jacket and buck teeth. She never really took a liking to anyone in my class. That was the worst class I’ve ever had

The gym. Workouts. Dips. Push-ups. Planks. I should go more – I know I should. And I tell myself “I know I will”. Next year. It’s always later. Always at the next change – the next opportunity- when it really should be now.

I woke up in the gym. There were butterflies and lollipops. I think Jim’s Gym was the perfect place for a masquerade party. The next time I wake up, I want it to be in the locker room. I will be closer to my clothes.

destination

Destination – ha – it’s not about where your going (your destination), it’s about the journey you take to get there. That’s what they all say at least. I don’t know if I buy that really. We live in a world that is in so many ways based on results. And as much as I wish it weren’t true – it matters where you wind up.

chrome

The chrome tail pipe glinted brightly in the morning light. It was so bright that one could hardly stare at it without squinting – especially after coming out of the much darker house. You could tell that someone had been out here, scrubbing it to its bright shine.

coffin

Coffin – what an uncomfortable word. Confinement and death and darkness come to mind. Try as I might, I can hardly picture this word in a brighter light. The darkness always creeps in somehow…

optional

everything is completely optional. Nothing can be forced, nothing can be truly manditory. Everything in this world is ours to choose, and if we let ourselves be led by the beat of others drums then we will never truly know who we are.

gong

The sound was powerful – my head seemed to be ringing from the inside out. I knew of course what it was. This is how it felt every time. It was a miraculous feeling, giving power to the mind.

course

The course was clear and green and the sky was a bright cloudless blue. It was so early still and the air still had its early morning scent and feel to it. My new shoes, still not quite broken in, stepped out onto the crisp grass, and I leaned on my driver, ready for a good day.

match

The match is lit, and burns out so quickly. The wood succumbs and yields to the oppressive heat. The match matches me. I burn out quickly. I was glorious, if only for an instant.

HAHA! i found it – two strawberries. I’m so good at the matching game. For a moment I thought I could be wrong. Was that second choice a piece of pizza instead? No, of course not – that was the one to the left.

conditioned

He awoke to immense pain. He could feel a pain in his stomach, like he had to throw up but was unable to do so. The throbbing in his head was unbearably painful. And then he realized the music – it was Beethoven’s dreaded 9th.

radio

The radio blared and blared, the harsh music pushing its way through the small speakers like a viscous liquid through a tiny strainer. The sound was abrasive on my ears,but there was nothing I could do to stop it.

brushed

I was rushing quickly down the hall, backpack straining and books going every which way. I had been rushing after being stuck at my locker by a stubborn lock. Suddenly, in the hurry, she brushed by me.

idle

at times, the world gives you the freedom to do what you ill when you will it. it is at these times that I find myself and others like me to become idle. We are so over or underwhelmed by the minutiae of our lives that we can simply site and be alone with our thoughts to briefly be at peace.

planet

Our planet is reportedly in trouble. I think we only see a small slice of infinity, and there’s no possible way for us to know the planet’s actually “in trouble.” I’m afraid our solutions may be just as short-sighted. How are we to know what effect cloud seeding will have 10 generations from now? How are we to know that our planet, which has self-regulated for millenia, isn’t working on a solution for itself? Climate change, weather patterns, the butterfly effect… we just don’t know what effect micro-climatic changes can have in macro terms. But, then, I’m not a scientist, am I? My opinion isn’t educated, is it? That must mean it doesn’t count, right?

icy

Dark, penetrating eyes. The icy stare. I felt a cringe inside me, as if my very own internal organs were trying to push out my back, running from such cold, calculated examination.

angels

do i have any angels in my life? my grandmother believes they follow my car around. guardian angels? or just good thoughts? baseball teams? what if you don’t believe? do they still exist?

» Posted By jeff On 07.20.2009 @ 4:22 pm

The angels circle in right angles. They defy all the rules of mathematics, of logic, of reason. And I’m in the middle, they are the circumference of a square. And sometimes they may pick me up. But mostly they just make my head spin three hundred and sixty degrees once per second.

coin

All the coins are raining upon us. Cold coins. Smooth coins. Coins without faces. Scrounging around we lick up the almost-liquid coins and gouge each other. Principle: meaninglessness. Material: meaning beyond measure. The surfaces are indented and feel like brail.

welcoming

There’s no way better to accept them into your home. You just have to grit your teeth, nod at the jokes, and never backtrack. Not ONCE can you give that fleeting glance over your shoulder to your husband and meet his eyes.

keypad

He knew. He always knew. There was a number in his mind as real as the gas mask covering his face. He held his breath and punched the number into the keypad. The door swung open. He breathed again.

spaces

The things that aren’t occupied by an object, such as inbetween things. Not a form of matter as it is empty. Largest space is space itself located outside of the atmosphere of the earth. There all also spaces u can occupy in games and such. These are used to indicate where you are located in the game.
