    Mood: Tired

    I'm done writing for awhile. I'm just too busy and not motivated enough to try to keep up with poetry these daze. I have gone from being too abstract to over-writing and I cannot seem to find a happy medium, so I have to take a recess. I'm finding it much more cathartic and productive to draw and paint. So for now, I'll be causing a ruckus in the forum, but I won't be doing any posting or critiquing. I will make up the comments that I owe (have owed for awhile), but I'm going to focus on my painting for now. With my job being as time-consuming as it is, I only have time to focus on one passion. I love you guys to death, though, so I am going to stick around merely for the good vibe and great conversation


    Song of the day: (although reading it is nothing like hearing it)

    "Sleeps With Butterflies"
    by Tori Amos

    Airplanes
    Take you away again
    Are you flying
    above where we live?
    Then I look up, a glare in my eyes
    Are you having regrets about last night?
    I'm not, but I like rivers that rush in...
    So then I dove in
    Is there trouble ahead?
    For you the acrobat
    I won't push you unless you have a net

    You say the word
    You know I will find you
    Or if you need some time
    I don't mind
    I don't hold on
    To the tail of your kite
    I'm not like the girls that you've known
    But I believe I'm worth coming home to
    Kiss away night
    This girl only sleeps with butterflies
    With butterflies
    So go on and fly then boy

    Balloons
    Look good from on the ground
    I fear with pins and needles around
    We may fall then stumble
    Upon a carousel
    It could take us anywhere

    I'm not like the girls that you've known
    But I believe I'm worth coming home to
    Kiss away night
    This girl only sleeps with butterflies
    With butterflies
    With butterflies
    So go on and fly boy

    "Crucify"
    by Tori Amos
    (sing along now)

    Every finger in the room is pointing at me
    I wanna spit in their faces
    Then I get afraid what that could bring
    I got a bowling ball in my stomach
    I got a desert in my mouth
    Figures that my courage would choose to sell out now

    I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
    Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
    I've been raising up my hands
    Drive another nail in
    Just what god needs
    One more victim

    Why do we crucify ourselves
    Every day I crucify myself
    Nothing I do is good enough for you
    Crucify myself
    Every day I crucify myself
    And my heart is sick of being in chains

    Got a kick for a dog beggin' for love
    I gotta have my suffering
    So that I can have my cross
    I know a cat named Easter
    He says will you ever learn
    You're just an empty cage girl if you kill the brid

    I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
    Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets

    I've been raising up my hands
    Drive another nail in
    Got enough guilt to start
    My own religion

    Why do we crucify ourselves
    Every day I crucify myself
    Nothing I do is good enough for you
    Crucify myself
    Every day I crucify myself
    And my heart is sick of being in chains

    Please be
    Save me
    I cry

    Looking for a savior in these dirty streets
    Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
    I've been raising up my hands
    Drive another nail in
    Where are those angels
    When you need them

    Why do we crucify ourselves
    Every day I crucify myself
    Nothing I do is good enough for you
    Crucify myself
    Every day I crucify myself
    And my heart is sick of being in chains

    Why do we change
    Crucify ourselves
    Everyday

    Never going back again
    Crucify myself again
    You know
    Never going back again to
    Crucify myself
    Everyday

    Yellow
    by Coldplay


    Look at the stars,
    Look how they shine for you,
    And everything you do,
    Yeah they were all yellow,

    I came along
    I wrote a song for you
    And all the things you do
    And it was called yellow

    So then I took my turn
    Oh all the things I've done
    And it was all yellow

    Your skin
    Oh yeah your skin and bones
    Turn into something beautiful
    D'you know you know I love you so
    You know I love you so

    I swam across
    I jumped across for you
    Oh all the things you do
    Cause you were all yellow

    I drew a line
    I drew a line for you
    Oh what a thing to do
    And it was all yellow

    Your skin
    Oh yeah your skin and bones
    Turn into something beautiful
    D'you know for you i bleed myself dry
    For you i bleed myself dry

    Its true look how they shine for you
    look how they shine for you
    look how they shine for you
    look how they shine for you
    look how they shine for you
    look how they shine
    look at the stars look how they shine for you

    Lost advice from Walt Whitman: Don't become a poet

    By CHRIS NEWMARKER
    Associated Press
    Posted May 6 2005, 11:15 AM EDT

    TRENTON, N.J. -- Walt Whitman is considered one of America's greatest men of letters, but he had some surprising advice for two aspiring scribes: Don't become a poet.

    The advice is one of the tidbits Whitman left for posterity in an 1888 interview with the student newspaper at The New Jersey State Normal School, now called The College of New Jersey.

    The interview was recently discovered by Nicole Kukawski, 21, a junior who sifted through old copies of The Signal while working on a literature paper about Whitman's thoughts on education reform.

    ``It was really painstaking,'' Kukawski said, ``but it also turned out to be worth it.''

    According to the article in the February 1888 edition of the paper, two young men visit Whitman at his Mickle Street house in Camden, where the elderly writer discusses the education of a writer.

    He tells them to practice their craft and to break conventional models instead of writing traditional ``poetry.''

    ``First, don't write poetry; second ditto; third ditto,'' Whitman says. ``You may be surprised to hear me say so, but there is no particular need of poetic expression. We are utilitarian, and the current cannot be stopped.''

    Whitman advised them to carry a pencil and piece of paper to jot down daily events. He even suggested they get their hands dirty in the mechanics of printing.

    ``Whack away at everything pertaining to literary life _ mechanical part as well as the rest. Learn to set type, learn to work at the `case,' learn to be a practical printer, and whatever you do learn condensation,'' Whitman said.

    Kukawski said she combed through the newspapers' dusty pages to try to learn about what students at the time thought about education and the famous writer, but she didn't expect to find actual words from Whitman there. Then she saw the interview.

    The discovery astounded her teacher, David Blake, an associate professor of English.

    ``From the perspective of Whitman studies, it's a small discovery, versus an undiscovered poem or book,'' Blake said.

    ``But thinking this is a junior at the college who found this in her research, this is really exciting.''

    The ensuing paper Kukawski wrote about the interview will be part of a symposium the college is holding this fall to mark the 150th anniversary of both Whitman's famous ``Leaves of Grass'' and the college itself.

    The New Jersey State Normal School has had several name changes since the 19th century, including an incarnation as the New Jersey State Teachers College at Trenton in 1937 and Trenton State College in 1958. It became The College of New Jersey in 1996.

    New interviews with Whitman are unearthed about once a year, said Ed Folsom, an English professor at the University of Iowa and editor of the Walt Whitman Quarterly Review.

    He said there are about 100 known newspaper interviews with the poet.

    ``They turn up with remarkable regularity, not just the interviews with Whitman, but unpublished letters and other notes of his,'' he said.

    Folsom was not surprised that The Signal interview includes the advice to avoid poetry, saying Whitman equated accepted poetry with conventional form and style. But he said the call to learn printing was especially interesting.

    ``If you're going to write some unconventional stuff that's going to challenge people's thinking, you may damn well need to publish the things yourself,'' he said.

    just don't have the time to be creative...mebbe next week.

    watched a good flick though:

    A Love Song for Bobby Long
    Starring John Travolta, Scarlett Johansson(gosh, she's so purty!), Gabriel Macht and Deborah Kara Unger

    Set in New Orleans and chock full of gorgeous quotes from some of history's greatest poets. It's not an epic saga, but it's a great story. And in my opinion, the setting...really takes you there.

    Still on hiatus...ya know how it goes.

    Catch up soon..(I know I know...I've been saying that for a month)

    Whew! Working on catching up..only 15 more to go recip and 20 after that to get back to where I'm supposed to be.

    I'm done for tonight though...lost time with internet being down for 6 hours. Feckin Comcast.

    It feels good to be catching up...and to sit down at my brand new desk with everything neatly placed in the proper files....aaaahhhhhhhh....feels good to unclutter. It helps me think more clearly.

    It just started pouring rain and thundering outside. I think I'll go have a smoke (quitting Monday), listen to Zeus and head to bed.

    tired
    she weeps
    pleads sleep
    denied tried
    and denied

    not yet

    dawn is less forgiving
    than yesterday
    she plays re
    plays

    in her mind fast backwardsnotquite re
    wind
    remind me to wake up
    when yesterday
    becomes less
    of a chore.
    of a whore.


    bitter fuck buttercup stumbling.

    Okay.

    It's about time that I get back to doing what I used to love to do in here.

    Reading.

    Reading the good, the awful...all of it. I haven't commented in so long. I have to say, it's been pretty rough for me here in the past couple of months. I'm not sure why I'm the main attraction for the elite antagonists, but I'm hoping that it's over now. I've had some pretty good fights with some very resilient opponents. I'm tired of it though. When I came here, things were different. Due to the popularity of the site, things have changed now. I haven't.

    Unfortunately, my bad side has been revealed and I've spoken some harsh words that I would rather have not spoken. But what's done is done. I just want to get back to doing what it is that I came here to do.

    So I'm turning in my badge.

    But I'm keeping my gun.
