strung

She felt the weight of their eyes on her as she stepped on stage. As part of her pre-performance ritual, she tuned her violin in front of the audience, calibrating the horsehair to her exact needs, hoping the instrument she strung herself wouldn’t fail her this time.

clout

The Colossus of Clout. Honestly, I didn’t even know what clout meant. All I know was the thrill of being able to watch a, should I say, rare movie classic inspired by Babe Ruth. That was I knew about Babe Ruth.

manhattan

I’ve never been to Manhattan, and I’m not sure what it even is. Was it a town in America? Or was it a state?

I wouldn’t know because I don’t know much about the world. I have a computer that I surf with but I still don’t know very much.

I don’t know very much at all, even though I have one of the many portals on knowledge in front of me. Am I stupid? Or am I just naive?

I don’t know, but maybe others know. Maybe that’s why they call me stupid. Maybe that’s why this story has nothing to do with Manhattan anymore.

listening

i am listening to what you say
my ears are facing the window
my eyes are facing the speakers

i don’t look at you but
i am listening to what you say

Bring the headphones in.

doorknob

I saw a high=tech doorknob over the internet last night. People can be so creative. Then i realized I’m not fond of doorknobs no matter how fancy they could be. Of stairs, I am. Also, doorknobs can be scary and/or mysterious. If you know what I mean.

lantern

The glass seemed too fragile to hold the light in: a camping lantern, designed for rough handling and hard weather, gave off the brightest glow in the interminable darkness and defied its own construction.

orbit

Orbiting unceasingly around the Sun, Earth wondered what it might feel like to break away. Saturn sounded nice this time of year.

trunk

One trunk. One whole lifetime, twenty-five years of possessions and memories, six square feet of space — the numbers didn’t add up.

dusk

From dawn till dusk, the world functions a certain way. After nightfall, the tables turn and all expectations are reversed: no longer do your petty daytime arguments hold weight in the infinite blackness of a street without lamps to light the way.

brick

Brick used to be a name, or at least a popular nickname, for a certain high school archetype: the large blond jock, stronger than he was smart, inexplicably attractive to girls who should have known better — but no more. Is it that we have no patience for the Bricks of the world now, or is it that they go by a new name? Brad? Mike? Joe?

canvas

Unable to keep anything in her life plain, she took the canvas of the tent for its artistic purpose. Staring upwards, the two gazed at the sky: not the natural light of the stars from above, but her elaborately painted conception of them, shining down in quite a different way.

bulb

Bulbs, both light and tulip, represent possibility — the one of flowering growth, the other, metaphorically, of an idea. Brilliance can apply to both, referring either to remarkability either in hue or significance.

amuse

Amuse. A muse. The muse of amusement? An amusing muse. Amusing musings. A musing muse. An amusing muse musing in an amusement park.

ticket

“She’s got a ticket to ride” — who’s got a ticket? to ride what? going where? These are my questions, Messrs. McCartney, Lennon, Harrison, & Starr.

violent

Violent is a red word, but violet is a violet one — appropriate, no? Funny how a single letter can make such a difference, and no two things are more different than flowers and murder.

assisted

“Assisted living” was nothing more than a polite metaphor for Death’s waiting room. She mused idly on the French lessons of her youth, remembering the curious incongruity between the meaning on the page and the meaning in her mind: “assister,” contrary to the assumptions of her native-tongued mentality, was more likely to connote attendance than aid. She was a guest of her old age, but more standing-room-only than VIP.

chalkboard

She froze. The blankness stared back at her, relentless, waiting for a response.

thirst

i am thirsty. for friends, for knowledge, for everything that sits above, on and below this earth. SOmetimes it is so strong that it overwhelms me. Sometimes i have to lie down and breathe, becuase it is all I can do.

Sometimes it is simple. Thirst is just for water. or for a hand to hold. for the feel of my cat’s fur under my fingers.
