    really anxious.

    just needed to write something.
    right now.

    (serpent: kundalini)

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    as always

    there are many you's
    i escape from, noting how each globe, how each curve defines
    the moment when i am caught: an inferno of masked candles soggy in the wind,
    my vision too caught up in the next page, not focusing on what's before me
    right now. because right now is mismatched jewellery, rusting chunks of metal
    cobbled together from a scrapyard. i say this, believing i confront
    my inner shadow, believing that all can become precious
    in its own sense
    of urgency.

    what definition

    of risk.
    of oceans spread apart
    between my fingertips.
    in the rush of soil
    meeting flesh

    and in the stories
    in wine-stained

    you say i run away, always run away, mind devoted to the syntax of pleasure,
    to the reasoning of resonance in silver, to the eyes wide shut in the morning
    sensation of not wanting to wake up, but slowly finding
    bone-white china locked away
    in my cupboard.

    (as always)

    as always

    two pairs
    against a triplet.
    a hacksaw
    the distance.

    as always

    (as always)

      Like I told you in FB, this is gorgeous.

    "...to the eyes wide shut in the morning
    sensation of not wanting to wake up, but slowly finding
    bone-white china locked away
    in my cupboard." - this has got to be one of my favorite snippets I've ever read from you. It's just incontrovertible for me. But then again, maybe that's just the case since I've never read anything like that before but I had that "oh yeah, that is how it goes" feeling when I read it.

    The rest of the piece is great, of course. I just want you to know that. And since you already did when I told you, I don't want you to forget. =P

      oh my god! that was one of the best poems that i've read in ages. it reminded me of diane wakoski in a way. but your writing here is unique and vivid. i would tell you what parts i enjoyed the most but it wold honetly be every single part, every line, every word. thanks for the great write!!

      Very clever formatting, I like the contrasts you have within that structure...

    the blur of the first long section


    the starkness of bone white china

    very nice how you bleed one into the other with the syntax and silver.

    in the smaller sections the imagery grows smaller, from something too big too touch, from feet, in earth, from those very enticing lips to things that move out of his control like luck and distance.

    Very intensely connected, and disconnected.

    You are an embarrassment of riches.

      this is so timely for me, to read this. especially from a boy's perspective.

    i love the words; they create moving stick figures (to your intended wide screen cinematic vision), though that is just our memes interacting...

    advance, retreat. perhaps you are not ready, not invested. there is no lack! it is just a stage/phase in your marvellous journey of you.

    so much of distancing, mismatching, locking up and serrating.... toward the opposite side of the + sign....
    mmm.... almost darkish here... hehehe
