oil

oil is the reason that the world is the way it is. so many wars, so much destruction, so many lives lost, all over the liquid that enables us to live the way we do. Its a shame.

gown

The mornings when my daughter, restless and bounding with energy, thrusts her arms deep into the boxes and returns laden with scarves and silks, tiaras and gowns and hats of all sorts, are tiring fun. She cavorts, dressed in six layers, singing words to a tune that only she knows.

view

Through the chimney I look, my neck stretched and back bent as I contort myself to see a field of stars sparkling in the daylight sky. Out there, through my chimney view and beyond my grasp, things glisten with a certainty I can barely begin to absorb.

sneaky

Slithering around the corner, sliding past crevices and avoiding sharp angles of light, we will by sneaky until discovered and then we will bury that avoidance deep within, visible only to ourselves, until just the right moment.

platinum

The walls are polished, glistening. The ceiling opens to the skies, bursting with starlight. There are bars scattered across the floor — gold, silver, perhaps even platinum. The treasure palace of my mind is littered with forgotten wealth.

return

There are times when my memory feels as if it were tied to a taut, rubber band and attached to a wooden paddle. Random swings return me to moments I thought lost, memories I believed buried. Bouncing against them with a measured rhythm, I find solace in memories of the future that lie ahead.

deserve

If only the sands didn’t slip and drift against the sun-beaten logs, if only the wind didn’t blow across the water. Do we deserve to be here, in this place? Do we dare dream of acquiring a moments peace like this, by the water, in the sun, speckled by the wind-blown sands…

centerpiece

Sitting on the periphery, I see it all play out. It’s almost predictable, the way everything fans out and embraces the centerpiece, leads every eye toward the glowing middle and allows us to forget that deep around the edges, in the shadows, true beauty lies in wait.

obey

why? Why must we?

What happens if we don’t?

Regardless…I’ll make tea.

Against the lines we lean and push, hoping to discover the boundaries and slip through the cracks. When resistance becomes too strong, we simply fold and obey. In doing so, we forget the laws that wrap our universe — that everything is in opposition.

stable

It is not the balance we seek, or the ability to navigate the shaky landscape we traverse. No, all we want is a moment where we can be stable, and in doing so see the horizon more clearly, more fully — watch the sun rise at the lip of the ocean without fear of falling in.

This means to have a stable life that it a good life and its going great and everything go wonderful. And Yea.

I think is means your stable person like you know what to do next right after the thing you have just done. Thats what I think stable means to me.

slouch

I slouched down in the chair in my room and began to think to myself, what is it that’s gotten me this far. I mean it sure wasn’t my slouching that’s for sure, but I sure can think when I slouch I guess that’s always been my curse. Not that I slouch, but rather that I’m a thinker.

» Posted By John On 12.02.2011 @ 1:00 am

We bend, twist, contort ourselves downward. Deep within our bones we collapse into our skin, mindless of the sinking shoulders, the sloped spine. We slouch, and in doing so we move ever so slowly back into the earth itself.

anywhere

The corners are vague, faded, coated in layers of coarse dust. We feel our way around them, searching for answers, for memory, for meaning that reminds us how we got here without knowing. We are anywhere.

“I wanna go somewhere new, anywhere” she said. Anywhere, all I could think was how much can you hate the place you live in that you just wanna go anywhere else, or maybe it was curiosity that made her not care where the road took her, maybe the destination was completely and totally irrelevant to her so long as she was on the road, and not standing idly by watching anymore. “Anywhere it is”.

» Posted By John On 12.01.2011 @ 12:35 am

She charged into the room breathing heavy, seeming almost panicky. “Quick let’s go she said, We gotta go now. Right now”. Where are we going?”. She said “Anywhere”

prints

The prints on the wall sat in perfect symmetry, as though they had been placed there by the most meticulous of tenants and could not be removed or even touched to dust or paint. They were, as it seemed, the ugliest prints I had seen in my lifetime, but I was sure that after buying the coffee shop, I would not have the courage to remove them either.

alarmist

I hate how today’s media focuses on everything from an alarmist perspective. The world is not going to end because some Hollywood socialite has to do some community service. The world is not going to end because a bunch of dirtballs are “occupying” wallstreet. The world is not going to end because the flu for this year is somehow super genetically mutated and incapable of being destroyed. The world is not going to end because the government made a legion of super zombies that have no weaknesses and mean dispositions…. but sometime I sure wish it would.

profound

this idea that i have is so unimaginable that when i try to talk about it my mouth goes all dry because its so profound. im not afraid of what you think because i like to sing and scream at people. im not really sure what profound means though but its a big word. not long word but big, as in it sounds big.

epiphany

epiphany is an epiphany which epiphanates all the epiphanies in the whole entire universe and doesn’t care what kind of shit goes down if things go wrong.

Yeah .. epiphany.

passionate

I feel passionate love for Cara. She is so beautiful and young and I think about her constantly. What I feel for her is pure and natural passion. I wish she knew how passionate I feel for her. I’m not sure she feels as passionate as I do about this entire situation. But, I hope she feels the same too. I love her with all that I am. And that is absolutely the most happy thing in my life right now. Even though I know it shouldn’t be… I can’t help it. I love her. And feel so strongly about that.

riots

“Riots on the streets of Long Beach,” is what my radio screamed that summer. I would crank it up high, windows of my little white Chevy Cavalier all the way down letting the summer air rush in. Someone watching me from outside the car, must thought me ridiculous. In my mind, I was everything that summer stood for—a driving singing anthem.

comfort

pillows dressed in silk chickes that slide with the mentality of ease striding the sliding glass doors that reflect a pure complexion of the life that slipped away, the stream on conciousness is not always a stream, sometimes it feels a lot more like rapids. i have nothing left to say/

radical

Radicals are kinda hyped up about very little not that wall street is little it’s just kind of annoying anyway radicalism is a bit good when doing human rights like stuff and marrage which is co-incidenatlly banned for gay people
