deafening

The swelling kernels packed into my ears begin to spill onto my shoulders.

conditions

The conditions are bleak. Currents betray the lines of mariners in their small boats. We are turned around in the channel and old Steve leans out in the fog with a pole to ward off unseen dangers. My fingers drum on the wheel and I curse the obstinate mist.

fleeing, almost free.

mumbling

indistinct.
head down, embarrassed, trying hard to talk.
mumbled eggs: I haven’t ever seen them again.
whatever it was, it’s lost now.

systems

a warm place, a place with features,
a place where I fit, a place I understand,
a place with function, a place with rules,
resilience, response, and returns

thought

I come here, perhaps exponentially decaying.
It’s all thoughts, here on the internet, and always has been.
The website doesn’t work right anymore.
The timer says it has expired.
Now I have to type my name.
Now I have to type my email.

framework

Rectilinear and boxlike, it will hold something you place there.
It has handles in all the right places.
It has been well devised.

straw

A straw man is a terrible thing. For one thing, he has no brain. For another thing, pundits are always propping him up to try to bolster a stupid argument. How would you like it if your options were to be a brainless fool standing in a field all day, ostensibly frightening away birds, or a pundit’s tool to try to frighten and intimidate his audience into thinking that his current viewpoint is correct?

spray

spray like a needle, washing away the coldness of terror, fighting off the infection within, spray like a champion, vanquishing disaster, spray like a rapier, ending oblivion.
