imagine being only about 12 inches tall at the shoulder, with the top of your head, as you walk, maybe clearing about 17 inches.
and imagine if when you walk, you dont stride purposely forward, but instead, each time you pick up your foot it slides downward and you scrape the… Read full post »
facebook, specifically. becoming less useful to me.
i now avoid politics, so there are many posts i would have read historically, that i dont want to read now. i can no longer afford the pall they cast. i am powerless in my own life, let alone worldwide. so i will continue,… Read full post »

for the first time in a really long time
to explain the word bathos to me. i have already looked it up, and its not clicking.

caveat: this is NOT mine. i copied it from someone who said they saw it somewhere.
keith asked me this morning how come whenever he disagrees with me, i yell. i said i have told you before, bc i dont care about things only a little bit. i am not casual on most things i find worth talking about. i feel them in my gut, and disagreeing… Read full post »

so i am going to go see her today at 3 oclock, and she will help… Read full post »
i didnt always feel unsafe in the world, you know. i used to ride in cars with drunk drivers, with music blasting, rolling and smoking joints. well, i didnt roll them, cause i wasnt coordinated.
i got separated from people and wasnt afraid of not finding each other again.
i DID get selected to go to an academic conference and give a poetry workshop. i feel super fancy, and one of my friends joked that she was going to call me professor.
i feel its important bc it increases my cred, on paper. makes a library or after school… Read full post »

also, bonus laughter in the videos their links lead to.
i am going to san diego. to visit. to get warm, and eat some yummy food, and sit by my friend's (heated! yes!) pool, and among all her flowers, and share our stories, and go to the ocean, and go to my beloved balboa park.
i get to go to that… Read full post »

went for a ride today and recorded a couple poems for public radio (not N public radio, not National. but still fun to say.).
then, since we werent too far away, we went to cracker barrel for lunch.
it was delicious.

ok, so my son moved out 10 days ago. its not his absence that makes the angst less, its feeling better about how he is doing.
he has landed in a good place.
his roommate finds him hilarious.

the geese's honking
the starlings' synchronizing
the finch's twittering.
the branch's creaking
the yellow chairs' shadowing
the turkeys' quiet garbled gobbling

my son's laughing Read full post »

society really has gotten to the point that we arent allowed to feel anything, without giving it a label.
