October 1582

In the span of 365 mornings and evenings You could learn to crawl You could start and stop and start You could fall in or down or off You could prove how crazy you really are to the one that you  claim to love You could come to grips with the fact that you and…

Gamma Butyrolactone

A full work day damn near 7 hours He came over at 11:30 AM I was worried but I wasn’t afraid of him He felt the same fucking way, scared because he could have encountered anything that reckless gambling but he got me and I got a work day from him too but it felt…

The Temple of Osiris at Abydos

It’s because the cut is right and because the cut is right the whole of the universe exists on the very end of my emotional string, my happening, my being is nothing and within that nothing lies everything. It’s because its easy enough and doesn’t require much fuss and is a reflection of us and…

43 years, 2 months and 18 days of pugilism

I catch myself staring at ceilings. I don’t know more than I think that I do. She should be so much further I tell myself, so much stronger by now. If you care you’re stupid too. I think everybody in every car around me is watching me drive and judging. I’m so far away from…

Crazy Foxes

Early Evening in Sacramento County

If you leave lessons behind you will inevitably need to repeat them not as punishment but because the best cognitive tool to enhance memory is repetition until you’ve done it enough you simply don’t get it What I can say I’ve learned is overly familiar and aggressive people will only escalate. Steer Clear. I should…

Venery

I could be mistaken but I am pretty sure that this is called an ambush. If this is love then there is definitely a dude, with a long white beard, on a golden throne, in the sky, with nothing else to do but jump to my defense when traffic is heavy on 75 and flick other…

Piqua

Quiet mornings and solemn nights Crazy moments and roving ojos Lazy habits and anecdotal lies Dreaming of other things and versions of nosotros Wishing what I can and loving only absolutes of absolutely nothing Quiet mornings and solemn nights Crazy moments and roving ojos Living for now and dinosaur ties Driving to the edge of easy cielos Wanting what…
