Damn, I need to find me some of those. But that's wicked cool!
This is my story both humble and true,
Take it to pieces and mend it with glue.

I don't know where these are going. Bear with me for a little while. I haven't been sleeping.

Journalissimo!
Stop me a while
I am redolent of cigarettes
And I flicker white and octagon red
As the clock strikes Vespas

even when you don't make sense you sound 'effin awesome.
"When looking up there, I just felt whole, like I belonged. Like one day I too would shine my most brilliant. Sitting there also made me think about sitting through services at my little country church back home. About that never-changing congregation of the same sixty-seven people and everyone has known you since before you were born. Now, out here in the real world, everything just seemed more vivid than when I used to sit in that little pew. That pew that was now so, so far away from where I was. I feared I had somehow left God behind there, too. I feared he was somehow just sitting there, saving my seat on the fifth pew from the front row, just waiting on me to come back. I left so quickly, I worried that he may not have noticed I was gone. And, now, I’m just too far away to find. So he’s just sitting there, patiently waiting on me to come back. I closed my eyes and prayed a moment. I hoped more than anything that he could still hear me." -an excerpt from my novella, A Sea of Fallen Leaves.

I examine my hands closely.

From childhood I have glanced at them from
time

to

time
to check on progress
to catch myself in the act of changing.

They were bigger every time I looked.

They are done with that now.

and now, a villanelle!



On Idleness

Upon a bed of dreams I lay
Watching him draw on a cigarette
Careless of his crafty way

Lit in sunshine's playful ray
His shiftily handsome silhouette
Upon a bed of dreams I lay

And thus I whiled away the day
Snarled in the coverlet
Careless of his crafty way

Too soon his passions went astray
And still, his half-poisoned Juliet
Upon a bed of dreams I lay

Unwelcome thoughts I kept at bay
Dismissing their words as idle threat
Careless of his crafty way

My tongue knows words enough to pray
But God hath forsaken my alphabet
Upon a bed of dreams I lay
Careless of his crafty way.

Jess already called dibs on being me I think!
I told her she really didn't want to be!
