    Mood: This pretty much sums it up...
      
    I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.

    Hi there...I would enjoy reading some of your work. Do you have any plans to post anything in the near future (old or new)?

    Just curious...

    Thanks for commenting on "we're out of luck, love". I'm glad you liked the beginning. I meant it to feel empty like that. Thanks again for stopping by.

    Thanks for the comment on 'Sans Snakes.' The title...I was trying to say 'This is what would have happened if there hadn't been any temptation in the Garden of Eden.' ...Maybe I should change it to Without Temptation?

    Ah, the '"knowledge being the only true immortality" lines would require you to have some knowledge of Greek Mythology. Gaia gave Zeus a flowering branch at his wedding to Hera, which grew into a tree that produced golden apples. The golden apples, when ingested, granted immortality. So really, it still relates to the colors of the apples.

    Thanks again for your comment

    All I could say is I am sorry that the one poem you chose to read and comment on was the one that disappointed you and wasted your time. Thanks for the comment anyways.

    thanx for the comment on my piece 'and this is [nothing] more...'
    i float in and out of the hopelessness that flows through that piece...
    i busted my collarbone 5 months ago after coming off my motorbike and its still not healing. theyve finally decided to operate but 5 months of no work or ability to function is killing me [in a non-emo kinda way lol]
