All at once, we’re through the front door. Rain-cold, blood in the kettle.
Home now, yew wreath, gum branch potpourri, and apple cider begets an amorous look and a cracked open Royal Dansk tin.
Holding the butter cookie between her thumb and forefinger, rolls it down the inside of her forearm like a St. Catherine's wheel, says "It's still early."
It sounds like everything else; it's an announcement. Inside my head I'm licking the crumbs off, and inside that head, I'm wondering if she meant something by ”it's still early”.
The worlds diverge and she playfully puts her hoodie back on and I’m sure she loves me unconditionally even if she’s got a bit of a sharp tongue. The late months are narrow months (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere) What’s a narrow month? You’ve got the Thanksgiving party and the gift exchange and the sidelong sun. What else could you do, besides all this?
“If we get the tickets now, they’ll be cheaper,

I'm an undead songbird and I'm bleeding
my chips at the poker table, camel-free
days. I'm high on anxiety and that's
pretty much it.
I'm an internet celebrity, get me out of here!
I hate the light and I can't call you back, I'm busy studying the specific gravity of love.
I blink intermittently like other things that blink intermittently and the
phrase "imminent danger" is overused, goddamnit.
I decay like concrete and probably
at about the same rate, but I don't watch it
and it doesn't watch me (why would it?) and
if walls could talk, they would tell us
how hard it is to ignore us.
I'm a member of the rumrunning five and I won't
miss Polaroids and I don't know what a perfect
circle is actually I do  know what a perfect
circle is and it's not what I just heard on the radio.
The whole world is equidistant from me, so I guess
that's a good start. I'm dying for a cigarette and
I'm dying without. I'm win, place, and show all rolled
into one.

The Fremont Street Body Chocolatier

The implacable desert sand

To the Paper
Like a Dior, a Klein, the
architect of form in the
letter, the
typographer, half artist,
half photocopier,
first reads the
text, as though the
words could be improved upon,
then introduces his
craft, dissecting the
original, character by character in
an envious necessity.
To call him a
murder of the
lexicon would overstate
his aim, which is only to
dress it. Words, who would
not clothe themselves, are
spoiled by such treatment.

Never Felt That Well
Think like a bad CAPTCHA, wilted produce, ten oh three AM
with magic eraser
Subjectless, attempting to keep pace with the
half-marathon runners
Brutus can

the screen tap and the LED flash,
in the unset smile
the Risorius gravity

sorrows worth repeating?

Thematically Bankrupt
My car has a suspension of disbelief. My love is organic chemistry.
I pay attention to dog faces.
Dog faces, with those compressed sentiments
Dog faces, the backdrop of states
States, my lexicon is insufficient to describe
Moving on, serving sizes
Wilting roses, without my glasses
Parking tickets, rhyming couplets
What do I want for dinner? Nothing fancy.

what I'll tell my children
when I'm called on to explain

I think I

because playing

a soldier,
is a lot like life
only better.

Come, dear. Shake the amber out of your shoes.
Come, dear, back to Rio.

We think, although I do not know how this comes to be,

All dressed up // with no place to go
James Brown                             on the stereo
thoughtfully                            resenting
representative of humanity              the big questions
who we are                              and why?
Thrown and troubled                     trying to be cleansed
we dance                                in the platinum night.

Hello morning star, I've a little left. That's not pain, I say.
It would be worth noting if it were worth anything. I run
slow. Leather world forgiving has sustained me. I believe
it's just after six AM.
Front page news, BTC is at $100 now. That's not surprising, I say.
Lost 90% this year, watched it & some bar rescue show. I worked
hard. I have better friends than I deserve. I doubt
there'll be a tiebreaker.
Everything is Terrible is terrible. That's not ironic, I say.
Opinions are like assholes, or something. I quit
my job too. Fantastic fallacies surround me. I fuck
around and lose track of the year.

and I
Society is like the taste of a dry toothbrush in my mouth.
         Gauche, I remain in the diner at closing time.
         More human than not, I'm little else that can be named.
With my turbulent and uncanny mind, I demonstrate anxiety
and I nurture the grandest doubt.
         My song is without harmony, clumsy but efficient
         narcotic and lithe, the consummate observer. I wait.
         I watch and breathe.
The present is like starlight, obscure and potent until there is
         no one left to dismiss it.

the coffee's steam
On the third day of the conference, the immaculate
pauses in the back seat of the rented towncar. He
becomes gradually aware of his growing leg hair, the
plaque on his teeth, the collection of the undesired,
the trophies of life that fail to differentiate the
driven from the less so, the scarce from the common,
the diamond from the coal. He tightens his grip upon
the door handle and remembers briefly that he and
the car are one.

Teenagers Skateboarding
First, after the sun comes back out,
the teenagers and I head off to
the skate park where I will watch them
and casually write while soccer practice
occurs in the field below. One boy,
in a plaid shirt, maintains a glance at
my diet soda for a moment before
gliding off and eclipsing my view of
the small-breasted woman in her
January jacket, pushing a stroller.
What chariot, I thought, entrusted
with the delivery of myself or the
next successful entrepreneur of a
burgeoning uranium reclamation industry!
Then, the sound of wheels and particle
board scraping across the cement.
They are young and would not know
about inflation or jihad but I
am certain nevertheless that they
are our future. The one in the
plaid shirt is trying to perform a
trick where he jumps off his board
at the corner of a ramp and then
to land on it again. I have seen him
attempt it fifteen times unsuccessfully.
By what cosmic insight does he get the
notion that the next time will be
any different?

Personal Quote: life is a natural disaster
I am fond of sleep. Tonight it eludes me. I'm here because I saw a name that reminded me of another name that reminded me of an unsettling feeling.

If I remember, anyone can remember.

I could continue


that I have the linguistic capacity to write again.

I think back on the times I sat with a mug of hot chocolate in between my hands obsessively refreshing the page to see if I had comments, using the IRC channel for amusement, and being the absolute dumbest person I have ever met. Not that I regret it. Though the one piece of advice I'd give myself... Don't listen to advice from old people.

I don't know how I got here.
