It doesn't matter. it doesn't matter how anyone makes you feel, it doesn't matter what anyone says. because you can't escape what you are. that's just it. it's inevitable. not because you know it's coming, but because it just is. it's always been true, it's always been that way. and it won't change. not today 

naught aghast

naught gained. a myriad of symphonies. treading laggardly behind. pushing nuns aside. public penitence for a dolly, a pop. and a wringing of the ears to wind them bearers up. it likens to sing. it's likened a lot. resemblance to paths before taken abrupt. wriggles assigned. chosen or dismissed. however dismantled, crevices unhinged. until luckless sire bends a will. a will and a flaunt. a manner of speaking. manageable, preponderant. to wash over craters. their waters a wheeling. bashful pertinence. backing, backing; blacking out.  

I've figured it out. It's mispensating.

There's the rub. Words are most fun when they're made up. Because that is when they hold most truth. Mispensation for example. Magic tricks is all. Foolish most of all. Misconception then. And there. A lack. Not quite, not yet.
Deficiency. Depletion. Deficit.
Dearth.
Dearth!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't to merit to want? It's nothing to do with who is deserving or what so-called talents can accomplish. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING. Why can't things be as they are. It would be so nice to just sit somewhere with a breeze and sew threads on white cotton. No walls, just light. And the only conflict playing would be the thimble against the thumb.

CHORIC SONG
I

There is sweet music here that softer falls
Then petals from blown roses on the grass,
Or night-dews on still waters between walls
Of shadowy granite, in a gleaming pass;
Music that gentlier on the spirit lies;
Than tir'd eyelids upon tir'd eyes;
Music that brings sweet sleep down from the blissful skies.
Here are cool mosses deep,
And thro' the moss the ivies creep,
And in the stream the long-leaved flowers weep,
And from the craggy ledge the poppy hangs in sleep.

II

Why are we weigh'd upon with heaviness,
And utterly consumed with sharp distress,
While all things else have rest from weariness?
All things have rest: why should we toil alone,
We only toil, who are the first of things,
And make perpetual moan,
Still from one sorrow to another thrown:
Nor ever fold our wings,
And cease from wanderings,
Nor steep our brows in slumber's holy balm;
Nor harken what the inner spirit sings,
"There is no joy but calm!"
Why should we only toil, the roof and crown of things?


- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Happiness. They look upon it with disdain. The excitement in your eyes reflects a worry in theirs. A worry that you might take what you feel and run away. From responsibilities and such. What else is new. They like when you're worried, tired and sad. But you should never show them sadness. Respond politely, accordingly, willingly bowing to their will. They like to burden themselves with the creation of their own burdensome selves. It's a happy medium of tyranny and creative outlet-ivity wouldn't you say? I hate them. I hate them all. 

The woman in yellow

F e b r u a r y  1 5 , 2 0 1 6

There's a yellow little old lady. I seldom see her. But when I do, she's dressed in yellow from head to toe. From the ground up, yellow toes encased in yellow shoes wrapped in yellow laces. Feet kept warm in yellow socks trimmed with yellow lace. Pants of the most brilliant yellow skimmed with yellow stitching. A sweater of soft yellow under a raincoat made of yellow. Hands are adorned with yellow polish which glimmer in the company of her yellow bag. She tops it off with a hat in tones of darling yellow. And her light hair glows of a feverish yellow under all the yellowness of her presence.

Sometimes I just want to stay on the bus and have it ride on forever. With no thought to cloud my mind and no temper to weather my senses. It can pass by like that, life it will. If you let it. No stops, no breath. A continuous journey, a flat line. 


It's not living, it's livid. A dividend, of windows, of rain dues. of windy voices. A vision of a division, a derision, an oblivion. It's not vivacious, volcanic, voluptuous or voluntary. Let it not wind you up, serve it plate, and tie it round. Escape the space of solitary sanity, of sobriety in sober as sober. As stoic as stoic. Salivating on solutions on suction and sucking and skulking. Sulk. sulking. Cages caged in caves of causality. A constant constantly on the cusp of concentration convulsively concrete. Craving crust and crossing cost. tempers tidal, time ticks total. type is touching. chins are moving. Mossy mousy mouth


Keeping up with myself

N o v e m b e r  0 4 , 2 0 1 5

It's always been difficult for me to keep up with any creative project with any sense of regularity. I'm always changing my mind and generating new ideas. It's hard to keep up with. And whenever a new idea pops up, the old ones just don't seem relevant anymore and I just don't feel like pursuing them anymore. Not that I thought they were bad ideas. On the contrary, some of them I thought were genius (emphasis on the "I"). No, it's just that when a thought is of the past, it's already over and done with in my mind. I can't create things for show. I've tried to do that, and it doesn't work with me. This is why it takes so much time for me to develop any project. This is why I can never finish any project. Since everything is so closely personal to me, no project can ever be finished because I essentially become the project. And I'm always a work in progress. There's nothing wrong with doing things for yourself. I never questioned that. It's just hard to separate what I'm trying to do with who I am. I guess I don't have to, but everything I do just ends up being depressing...
