Ideas not certainty

Paging through old words I am reminded of darker days. My posture tells a different story than behind the window dressing. Fooled myself into playing smart an assistant to build this crumbling wall. When there’s only one decision to make a simple life presents now possible.

Parallelogram

The path reveals itself almost mystically – a faint exposed tear as I turn the corner of E 15th onto Walnut. Where the rusty wrought iron meets its concrete base loosens, as if someone poked a finger through. In my short time here, this corner house possesses a particular peculiarity; something I am not able […]

So how does one capture emptiness (?)

While floating in this weightless state My meditative hum whispers…[{“Give no weight.”}}}}}}}}}}}}    Just another discourseful axiom I accept,  For to ‘not’ would give in to its fucked up density.

Or, does blind despotic dominance’s mico-immediacy acquisition Annihilate all well-intentioned macro-foundational goals Through His-Story’s first come, […]

No Matter How You Frame It – You Are It

An out-of-place feeling This evening possesses: A particular quiet calm Made only capable Within its peculiar wetness During early October nights.  Or is it this still in/tact holiday? The one that divides all manners Into rights and wrongs  By individuals with too much time, Or, at the very least, In dire need of a hobby.  […]
