• globusgeckus commented on the post, possible 7 years ago

    I close my eyes and wonder what could be.

    I have to close my eyes these days because imagining much good without doing so is much more difficult than usual. It’s not impossible, of course, I’ve seen too much […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, scene 7 years ago

    Cut and fade to black… so ends this scene, the curtain falls upon our stage, and that is how it ends.

    It doesn’t end, of course, no more than the story ends in the hearts and minds of people who walk out of […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, combine 7 years ago

    Come to me, love, and sit a while. Let’s talk about how we can make this work, for all of us. Let’s talk about how it’s not so wrong to want to combine and blend and mix and swirl all the things that are good […]

    Don’t think I don’t know why you put this word here today.

    I actually didn’t want to think about that, anymore, and certainly not today.

    Not when I’ve got a funeral on my mind, starting tomorrow, for the […]

    I strapped in and stood up. It was go time. I was halfway up the slope outside the gondola station, as you have to be if you have a prayer of making it past that slightly uphill bit and past the first mountain […]

    The waterfall crashes down, hot water splashing into the pool, snow slopes buzzing with people whizzing down them outside the open-air window frame in front of me.

    The steam rises thick, obstructing the view […]

  • I stared out the window of another bus, the Asian scenery whizzing by. Mat Kearney sang in my ear, as he had been quite a lot lately. And before him it was Angels and Airwaves, for god knows how long, months. […]

    He flexed the thin plastic plate back and forth, looking at me.

    “I think this one will do,” he said, dropping it to his side, the matter decided. The next move, of course, would be to head to the cash register […]

  • In the stillness of the night, you stirred and awoke me.

    I’d never been in this position before. Not with you.

    But what do you do, but love someone, when they are next to you?

    You never know where it […]

    “I don’t care whether you go or not,” he said, turning away from the conversation. She spoke to his back.

    “Yes you do,” she said. “If you didn’t, you wouldn’t have come back here in the first place.”

    His […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, miracle 7 years, 1 month ago

    I don’t believe in fate or anything, or god at that, but I do thank god (in the proverbial sense) for having met you. And as far as fate, well, I still don’t believe in anything approaching predetermination, but […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, covered 7 years, 1 month ago

    I’ve got you covered, Friend. When your back’s against the wall, when you don’t remember to stand tall, when you don’t know where you’re going or how you’re gettin there, I’ll still be here to help you with it […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, texture 7 years, 1 month ago

    The sand coarse but sweet beneath my feet
    Stuck between my toes
    And I see you there beside me
    Much more than I even know.

    But our time will come that you come to tell me
    In your sweet and unassuming […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, darlings 7 years, 1 month ago

    My little Korean kids.

    Well they weren’t really little, they were like 15 and 16. But they’re what I think of when I think of little darlings.

    Well they weren’t really little darlings either.

    One I […]

  • I remember I got my mattress in Rotorua at the Salvation Army for $12. I was so pleased with that, and that mattress worked just fine.

    I remember living with Cam, who I thought would be so cool to live with […]

  • He loaded the magazines again.

    Ratatatatatatat and the heads of the Vietnamese exploded in that deep dark sticky miserable jungle.

    I tried to imagine it as I stood next to the side entrance of the tunnels, […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, refuse 7 years, 1 month ago

    I refuse.

    I refuse to let convention dictate the ways in which I love a person, a man, a woman, an in-between, an anything.

    I especially refuse anyone to dictate the way I love you. And when. And how. And […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, carbon 7 years, 1 month ago

    Like the carbon monoxide that pulled my friend Kyle from his body, the call of life pulls me from this shell that I am entrapped in. My release will be sweeter than his was, though. My release puts me into the […]

  • globusgeckus commented on the post, side 7 years, 1 month ago

    Side by side, you held me against you, in a way I have never been able to shake, and never want to forget.

    In the cold air of every morning, snow piled high outside, sometimes bright blue sky overhead, […]

    I want to see you again.
    I want to snowboard again.
    I want to live in New York.
    I want to live in Queenstown for a year.
    I want to be around my friends, with a real life, in a real home, for a real amount of […]
