WARNING: what you read at noon is NEVER the same poem or post a few hours later. I can't help myself. I like to noodle.
HELPFUL SUGGESTION: if you like what you've read (and even if you didn't), come back in a day or two. It'll be better. In fact, if you hated it, you must come back and read it again because it will definitely be better.
"I find that I am so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head.
I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain" -Red in The Shawshank Redemption, Stephen King

when did it happen
the sudden pivot
without even asking
a madly swiveling rod
thrusting away the sum of my life
my own bag of tricks
on a new sway without me

I tried to access a second account I had here. Last week it was there - online. Today it isn't.
Now it's entirely possible what I accessed wasn't actually online because I've always copied entire pages directly from the web so to have the comments and the… Read full post »
I'm slow but today I had a eureka moment!
it felt the same as it did when I heard "paul is dead" - I got goosebumps and sweaty palms as I considered the outrageous wisdom of it - so swept away was I with the ferver except I don't think I… Read full post »
..........I think about god. he pops into my head and I find myself pondering my big god questions: is there a god? is all this his doing? what does he look like? where is he? what is he up to when I'm not thinking about him?

I don't know why but it feels to me as if I'm running around this joint, turning lights off and on. it's a lot of fun.
Dear Ed I Torz...

But like the rest of the world I gotta make cash and sometimes I don't get over here for months and golly and beggora, wouldn't you know it? it's the same fucking "cover" starring kale and depeche mode.… Read full post »

I am grateful.
My life has been a ragged bag of privilege from the lowest to the farthest ends. And there have been crisp snatches of sweet amongst the bitter. Not many have witnessed the sights I have and lived. Mine has been a life of contrasts.
Born savage,… Read full post »
.....and some escaped, running away to delicate, quieter places, some were transported to an alternate reality, that neat compound of white washed walls separating the cubicles and cells.
some like myself climbed the walls but hid just outside, listening to the screams and howls and laug… Read full post »

Sometimes, actually most of the time the most ridiculous shit spills forth from my yammering mouth like pounds of steaming spaghetti quickly poured right outta the pot into an ittybitty bowl on a cluttered countertop - snaking… Read full post »

I don't know if he exists or if he's the single most perfect panacea since booze but far far better, being God is supernatural plus there's the promise of God* and all he can do. Because liquor, even the best of it has real limitations and when… Read full post »
He was here with her. She knew it when she felt her skin get all prickly. Then came the soft and soothing voice she knew so well; it was surely the Lord Jesus who was whispering in her ear as she stirred the roux, “Marla Mae come unto me”.
