voyage

Voyage is the kind of word that is always in the distance, the kind of word you chew on and dream about but never approach. Even when you’re on an adventure (another one) you just think, “this is ordinary life, not a voyage–that is yet to come.” It is always yet to come.

longing

Seriously LONGING for this word to switch to a differnt one. Doesn’t this thing change once a day? maybs not. ANyway. Proud of myself for writing. Don’t matter what it says. Just gotta keep typatity tapping.

Oy. Longing. What about shortening? Hey hey!

My longing is cumbersome. It would be better to be middling or averaging. I just want to enjoy writing. I guess I have to learn how to want writing differently. Motivation.

silk

Sex. That’s what I have to start with and I’m not too happy with it because, ooo, people having sex, tightly gripping on red silk sheets BORING

even having that sex would be boring. What a performance. Amazing sex is boring. Boo! Next! I’m a bit of a critic lately I guess. Well, FUCK EM.

puppy

We see puppies not for puppies but for the symbol of our own strange perverted wild instincts. The word tastes like strawberry ice cream (not real strawberries perhaps)–silly, pink, a little bit soft.

occupancy

We make up Occupancy Rules because otherwise we are just living and there isn’t anything to keep our minds distracted, and we die when we are not distracted enough. So we tell our children, children, don’t walk on this grass, children be quiet after 10, and then our children go to college to discuss academically how and why and what the rules are and they get jobs so they can pay for their children to go to college and we all stay sufficiently busy

hero

I’m just playing hero. The game starts now, and it ends with my heroic death, tangled up in a blanket cloak, and a cohort of people around me, some of whom I have tried to save. If only I could have saved myself.

stolen

Stolen! I yelled, running through the streets, screeching, looking at every stranger suspiciously, trying to name the big missing hole in my heart, and hoping that there used to be something there, it was there, I was whole, who is it that has left me in this state of fragmentation….

savage

We call each other savages, and all of us are offended, though none of us knows what it means. No one is a savage at all really, all that is left is a bad taste in our mouths and a sense that sometime there was something unsavory to be, a long lost ancestor who embarrasses us, a corner of ourselves that we must never accept.

secluded

We’re all a little bit afraid of being secluded, but the irony is, we’re usually the ones imposing it on ourselves. Preemptive damage, if you will. It’s okay to be alone, we learn eventually, after all this pain, we learn it’s okay to be alone…

wheat

Our lives revolve gently around wheat. Every morning I get up just to chew over a bowl, walk on and on and later I can slurp some wheat noodles and I keep chewing myself and chewing myself through everyday.

blasted

I have the growing desire to blast the girls next to me with every kind of irritated reproach; now a sharp or witty remark, and in a moment of weakness, some sort of explosives. Sadly, my own mind is the only thing enduring any trial, and they talk on.

fatigue

Hard to face your own fatigue sometimes–I hope I can overcome the burden sometime.

available

You’re a door. Your mind is the doorknob.

Do you speak when you spin? Do you open with a flourish, close with a boom? Or do you revolve after each person who goes through your doors…

methods

We wrap ourselves up in layers of warm methods at nice, whispering to ourselves over and over that we are not the first ones to stumble through this adventure, that many have come before, that our methods will keep us warm and suspend the pulsing life in our veins.

July

July was the time I first knew that I loved you. I hadn’t seen you for months, and didn’t care, or wanted not to care, and then I dreamed you and me more honest and more real than we ever were. And our dream selves were in love, and I knew we should try to reach for them.

roof

You can keep the sky, all I want is the roof–I’d settle for balancing on two feet, no wings, but a full view of a night speckled with stars.

simple

It’s as simple as it should be, she told me, while the world spun around us and all of heaven was hell and hell became heaven and I couldn’t speak because none of it was right, and nothing I could have said would have been true enough.

She looked me directly in the eyes, as if to say she knew.
“Simple as it needs to be.”

higher

These days, all higher means is ‘pass the joint.’ We’re all so burnt out on big dreams, we had 20 good years of people asking us what we want to do when we grow up, now people ask us our majors and career paths.

under

We are all born under, under the blood soaked covers, and reminded forever that we are under heaven, underneath the right to live that we have been given. We are underneath, and that is all we know.

forth

Go forth, and multiply

Today I did

1 x 0 is nothing

2 x 0 is nothing

3 x o is……

I supposed I better make something out of myself, because nothing comes of nothing.

upper

I live in the upper floor of my brain, looking down upon the emotions swirling in the basement floors, screaming when my feet get wet, and staring out the windows of my eyes, wondering when I am going to get out of this godforsaken house of self-made horrors

since

‘Since’ is the human condition. It is a question and an explanation, a slice in time and we’re sitting on top of teh knife blade cutting across it all. We have always been asking, when did it all begin? I’ve been here, since when? And silently asking the other question–what came before?

wet

Wet, like a glimmer of blue on black

I’ve had a dry soul my whole life
begging, screaming to be wet, not just to have water sprinkled, but to possess water, to move it and be moved by it.

Someday I will speak in water bubbles.

spa

Life is a luxury spa
A long luxurious process
Pebbles exfoliating your feet
The morning sun a sauna
Pay by the hour
and hope we leave with a sigh of satisfaction.

stillness

All the color is drained out of my eyes. It’s the stillness I’ve been waiting for, been dreaming of….it sits on my skin, a dragon’s armor. I’m begging the stillness to sink into my pores, to drip into my blood, to silence the scream I can’t make, to finally stop the painful thudding of life into death.

darlings

Darlings, a word for those who have run out of names for their feelings, a way of saying you care for someone while still holding them at the stop light ends of your fingers. Oh my darling, you are already a world away….

detention

Detention–why do we detain, slow down, those who are seeming to struggle most? The privileged kids are given the green lights, get all the pampering and engine repairs, get every praise, and the poor broken down bodies of the penniless children get detention.

fractures

All the little fractures
are meant
to let the light in
and every little break, every discontinuity in my wholeness
is just to remind me
that the universe comes through me
and I was never whole without it anyway

pits

Oh lord. No one wants to think about the pits. We all try not to be in the pits. We try not to get the pits in our mouths. We try to hide our pits and to made them as inconspicuous as possible. We are all trying not to believe that we are pit-iful….it’s pithetic.
