• Swing Through commented on the post, spiked 4 years, 5 months ago

    Spiking. Heightening. It’s the wave of today as far as I can tell, but I live on the outskirts of nowhere to be honest, They’re watching tv in an inset while a movie streams in the background and someone online somewhere is waiting for one to finish a word game turn while drinking tea that has ginger in it and there’s jasmine on the leaves and…[Read more]

  • Swing Through commented on the post, cursed 4 years, 5 months ago

    After the thirteenth Friday in a row that wasn’t a 13th of some month, he swore I was cursed. He had kept a log of each day with graphs and dictation and somehow he had assessed that Fridays were dooming me. He took off the entire month of February and said he found the remedy. Every hour matched with its minute he went outside and howled at…[Read more]

    Inside out indulgence.

  • Try. And, if you do, make sure whatever opportunity is there, is worthy of you.

  • Swing Through commented on the post, soar 4 years, 6 months ago

    Some fly, some soar. There’s a difference.
    The sweetest soar I ever witnessed was a powerful, direct, planned, unregretted distance. It was much more than a walk away, and not cheap like a swagger. Both feet on the ground.

    Dharma for butterflies.

    Running in and out of stars, only to trip on some celestial collision, he grew a little stronger every time. I’m doing this all wrong, looking out instead of in and entered a vortex in his own mind. It’s strong enough now, it can be attacked or preyed, but I’m not coming out til I’m done. Nobody will ever know what…[Read more]

  • In Quatro, I find it more personal. This is the work of much of my life. Imagine if we could publish just any old time, no saving, no squandering, no care. Try to use just one type. And that boy they sent over three months ago, I hear he does it right. This is the work of much of my life. Imagine if we could publish just any old time, just…[Read more]

  • They’re a wreck, I admit (as if I’m the cause.) She chose to walk on water, instead. Without sulfurous smoke and ash, without the burnt edged carbon fragments of something to stamp into the earth again, maybe it’s easier to forget. Because, it’s the feeling you can’t shake that does it, combined with the lack of motivation or method to make…[Read more]

  • Swing Through commented on the post, slate 4 years, 6 months ago

    There is no reset button in life. And, you can reset a game, but not the playing of it. Not many want a reset anyway, more of a selective start over again. The slate may be a bruise, but there are always darker hues. There’s always black paint and white charcoal, too. Clean is nice, clean is fresh, seasoned is spice and zest. The question is,…[Read more]

  • Swing Through commented on the post, mercy 4 years, 6 months ago

    I don’t want mercy, I want to live a life where I don’t need it. And, I don’t want want to be merciful, I’m not interested in that kind of responsibility. You’ll never know if you’ve been given it, that’s what true mercy really is.

  • Swing Through commented on the post, olive 4 years, 6 months ago

    Clinking glasses on a warm winded night where everything panned like slow motion time. My eye fixed on the one solid thing I could fasten it to, like a relic of this single moment, it gave life to the glass, a heart beating inside.

  • Swing Through commented on the post, miss 4 years, 6 months ago

    Miss is superficial. Pine hit me like I fell 7 stories and landed with a thud nobody heard.

  • Let’s talk. Let’s chat. Let’s pretend this is a date, while I ask you a series of questions. Where’s the smooth in that?

  • Manicured to bloom robustly.

  • Swing Through commented on the post, stunt 4 years, 6 months ago

    Stunt. Stunted. I am cut off. Halted. Stopped. The cancer won’t grow, but it won’t die out. Maybe it’s a heros act. It takes a stuntman to make it happen.
