fries

You know what that does? It really fries my head. I can’t think of a time when it didn’t. Julian with his perpetual spiral t-shirt. I was a kid and everyone thought 3d was so cool. I’m sure it was but being blind in one eye made me fake it. I wished I could have understood.

weather

People were always asking him about the weather. Why? Wasn’t there anything else to talk about. It was LA the weather was always, always the same. There wasn’t anything lying beyond that. People always tried to make it into some sort of poetic diatribe but nothing could be mustered beyond “Nice day today” and a half mustered response of “Yeah, sure is.”

gazing

I was gazing into the bottom of the pool hoping to catch a glimpse of something. What? I’m not so sure but it was supposed to wake me up, but I was still sleeping.

lofty

IT was a lofty aspiration to say the least but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth trying. I mean who’s to say what’s worth anything at all? I couldn’t tell you for sure. But I do know a little discouragement like that is certainly not enough to dissuade me.

turtle

When I was a kid I wanted to be a turtle or maybe just have a pet turtle. They are terribly interesting creatures. I love the dichotomy of there slow existence on land and the dynamic life they live in the sea. People seem to forget that. All they know them for is their speed, of lack thereof.

smoking

I never really liked smoking. I did it for one stint when I was in college freshman year just to fit in. It never really bothered me when other people did it either. This time was different though, as he put that cigarette up to his lips I couldn’t help but want to smack it right out of his mouth.

coarse

I remember her hands. They always seemed so coarse to me. I guess that was the case with farm work. People don’t understand all of what it takes. I didn’t really get it either but I didn’t mind learning, it was nice just having something to hold.

mispelled

I will never forget the time my sister misspelled bigotry in the finals at her middle school spelling bee. I had never heard the word but I could tell by the look in her eyes she didn’t know how to spell it herself. B-I-G-O-T-R-E-E

swatches

When we started looking at those swatches of paint for the new apartment it finally felt like this was all becoming real. Eggshell? or dandelion? it didn’t matter to me I just wanted to get on with my life.

billiards

I remember smoking in the billiard hall when I was first starting out. This was of course before the smoking ban. The sound of the balls cracking always seemed to make the music in the air sound better than it was. I was alright with that.

sly

She was a sly girl, but not in the way you would expect. Many people called her sly like a fox but I new that wasn’t entirely accurate. She was sly like something else, like that little kid I met at my nephews birthday party. “What is your name?” He asked me. “Steven” I told him. “But how do you know?”

She was sly like that kid.

gamer

The gamer was in the room playing a first person shooter. His brother sat behind him waiting very patiently for his turn, yet the the other brother would not give up, he would win. Then a knock at the door sent them both reeling. The bigger brother who had been playing went to answer the door, yet the only thing there was a letter stating, “Sometimes the only way to really win is give another a try.”

bonfire

I remember when we were kids and we used to have bonfires all of the time. Summer afternoons when the thickets needed to be trimmed, and they became dry in the sun. So we burned them. This was in the country but most of my friends, they lived in the suburbs, and what they called a bonfire was merely a campfire. These scorchers bruned through the night. In fact, once we had the fire department show up, because someone had called nine-one-one. I remember secretly hoping the firemen would see the bruises on my arms so that they could take me away.

educated

He seemed well educated but it was to early to tell. Maybe it was just the glasses, that sort of thing always fools me into thinking that someone is smarter than they actually are. Nevertheless, he certainly used a lot of big words.

artwork

Artwork is an interesting concept. Some people think modern art is a sham. I disagree, once something is named art it can be art. That’s the truth. It won’t be good, there is no gaurantee of that, but it will be art.

mountainous

For many years I have heard that Northern Spain has the most beautiful mountains. I don’t know if that’s true anymore. I still haven’t been to Spain, per-say, but in my mind there is no way they can compare to the Sierra Nevada’s.

interested

I was so interested to hear how her story ended. Still I never wanted it to come to a close. I had put too much into it for that hole in my life to be left completely open. I suppose everything has to end. That’s just the way it is.

belated

I’m sorry, I know that this apology is a bit belated” He said.

“Really, it’s fine”

“You know that it’s not, I just didn’t know what to say.”

playground

I remember the playground at my elementary school. The best part were these tire pyramids, you could climb inside them and pretend you were anywhere. Sometimes I would sit inside and pretend nothing was wrong.

harm

I was harmed by my own memories. They distorted my mind in a way I couldn’t recall. People told me it couldn’t be done but I knew that I could prove them wrong.

coma

I was in a coma for what felt like years
sipping on corgans soma
for what felt like a mirror

I should have known better than to try and fight it
but I couldn’t stand up

derailed

Everythings was derailed – after she told the truth
that comment hit like a comet blowing down our youth
you could say that she was crazy
you could say she was a fool
but the echo in the background made us think that she was cool.

startled

I was startled by the thought of it. Going up and talking to her that was as uncharacteristic of thing i could do. But here i was, walking right up to her.

what could startle the broken man? would it matter that he was startled? would anything change? i doubt it. i never believed the truly broken could be fixed, until the broken man was startled by his miraculous recovery.

politician

Nameless, faceless, heartless. Most don’t care about the people they represent, until an election when they are forced to run against a competitor. They falsely represent their ideals in order to get elected, then refuse to follow these ideals when it reallly counts.

methods

We all have different methods, but I like yours the best. Would you mind if I borrow it? Just for a day or two, you won’t even notice it’s gone.

racket

What a racket
inside the chamber of my ear.

I Felt your hand move closer
but your mind was no more near.

Show me a taxidermy skeleton
and a fictional piecemeal note.

and I will give you everything
that you ever need to know.
