    Mood: The Usual
    Jack Kerouac,
    Under a pine tree
    Is trying to make love
    To the empty mountains.
    It’s true he sees knowing
    Like some silly older brother,
    Stems from knowing nothing really:
    “There’s nothing to be afraid of
    and nothing to be glad about.”
    That’s his golden emptiness.

    And chilled on-edge trying to drown
    Out the semblance of emptiness,
    I ring myself in remembrance;

    You see I was shown a map last night,
    And with the primal terror of a child
    I saw bangs falling into bangs,
    And the great ground swell coming back
    And all of this sustained by pulse,
    Pulse which would scoop you up in a wave
    Try as you might,
    To sit alone under a pine tree,

    And It forbade you from saying profound words
    To empty people, or nothing at all
    After all your words can’t be taken back
    There they are striving,
    Only to be a little more child-like.

    It was good to read some work again and be drawn in to it so well. I have a soft spot for that poem, it really did its work on me and it (the effort of trying to relate back) was hopefully mutually beneficial. It's nice to get out of your own head space sometimes especially when a friend has gone beast mode. Hope you are well too brother.

    Hi Craig 😊

    I read your ten poems submission a while back and think it's very good. Just not very motivated right now. I guess you could say with all this writing over the years it's been something of a spiritual journey and in that sense it's ok to stay in place, rest up, or be tired. Kind of where I'm at. It IS always nice to see you.

    Hey Craig, thank you for your time and your thoughts. I think that one of my aims is just to have poetry be live/alive. I think if God permitted you (anyone) a brief moment of clarity then you could really se genuis on a page (in a stupefying and breathtaking way). Instead we kind of crudely pick away at writing like trying to recall moments of a dream or to picture (recall) scenery glimpsed through the clouds and of course we are always limited by how inspired we are and cope with NOW, you know, whether in real time lightning strikes and you can get that down with a pen! I kind of struggle these days to be careful enough or to battle through the emotional energy required to make anything halfway decent or I'd say my emotions and expectations about life / life's outcomes is confused, probably the result of having been ruled too much by my heart and living too much in my head. Anyway, I wanted you to know I appreciated your words and community. 😊

    Your Journal is really brilliant...

    since we are talking about trees:

    I ring myself in remembrance;

    I just thought the whole thing, with the addition of the quotes was entirely accessible
    and complete. Happy to read.

    I enjoyed the lines from your poem. Will definitely make a point of hunting that out because I do feel there was an affinity between the two. Your poetry seems hard to grasp, like if we were robots staring at a sunset that might be an uninteresting - non arresting set of data but when we add that human aspect it becomes a whole other thing. The things that lit you up, the things that scarred you, the intrusion, confusion of now. where is never one place, just as what is never one understanding. Interesting too that you might think me smarter or more industrious/careful than I am: bose is a brand of music speaker but I did enjoy the parallels and how it might better or more richly been intended. :)

    i should probably state that the music would be more on the ballad side and not hillbilly stomping. melancholic. like there is always a whistfulness or a bit of a heart tug thing going on.

    i suppose what i like most is how you word things, the verbiage. maybe it's the irish. or something like that. lord knows i am just a jersey girl who uses the f word or mf word nore than amything.

    anyway, the below is bluesgrassyish. but kinda what i mean.
