14 hours before I move back to California

Perhaps if I hadn’t thought I could no longer live in Indiana because I couldn’t find any love there I would never have moved to Upland, California in 2005 and I would never have met the Man from Moreno Valley and I would never moved to Vegas with him and I would never have left…

Aller de l’avant

I feel weak like worn out box springs Partly because I’m going to miss you I feel sad like the darkness autumn brings Partly because I know I don’t need you I feel hopeless like a life nearly ticked away Partly because I can’t have you I feel aimless like an archer in last place…

Because living is letting go… When you want to throw your arms behind your body and let your chest lead you, eyes closed, tears in bubble streams dangling through the space between the light and your ears toes scraping lines of your existence as your being glides through sand know that you are not the…

I am in a mood that defies logic right now and all that I want to do is cascade on a cloud covered magic carpet to the edge of existence and build a cabin out of space oak wearing stellar fig leaves that shine like pearls and farm organic spinach while singing wolf songs to…

The Storm Out

If we were really married we couldn’t just get a divorce because we had a fight. But if we were married, you couldn’t just pack up and leave either if you did not like how I answered a question. If you are going to do that, then what is the point of being married in…
