::imaginative introspection::

Imagine that all life is an illusion. All that exists is this moment. No past, no future, each memory, every plan, a part of the illusion. Life, in a photograph.

Do you like the image of yourself?

Anyone Ride a Harley? Listen to this.

deep dark side

see here's the thing
the thing
its here

with wings dripping black with tar
and eyes
its eyes
drill straight into my soul

look away!
look AWAY!




HERE is the thing.

i cannot bear to speak about
cannot bear

courage.  courage.  courage.

look into those eyes.

i can do this.

the thing, subdued,
I leave the mirror.
To begin to speak to you.

cheers, indeed.

Let's lounge in our own morosity,
stew in the mire of our own disappointments,
every failure, revisited,
every heartbreaking memory uprooted and purged into our laps,
so that we might spend a few dreary hours gazing at its beautiful dysfunctional existence.
Remember what we used to say, pleasantly demented.

Let us sit here,
drink our whiskey
and reflect
on the pleasantly demented history of all that has gone awry in our lives.

So we might be all the more grateful for all that has gone right.

Insomnia, Again. 
goddamn brain.
This Mind, The One That Refuses To Rest,
Images, Theories, Ideas—All Swirling Through This Overactive Consciousness 

Meanwhile, The Earth
it Spins
And Without The Sun This Mind Becomes A Vacuum
Where All Thought Is Instantly Ubiquitous, Yet Nihilistic.  
Each Point Both Brilliant And Banal.

Someday He'll Be Famous.

This is my younger brother.  He's incredible.  Pass the video around!

what is real?

the cold has come.
toes exposed.
shivers up this spine
winter creeps over this nude form

i resist the urge to run through the streets
raving subconscious slipping out
as words drift from dream to reality

i wake.  Cold in the night.

On hope.

How is it that in this world where life is brief and love is fleeting that we allow for waste? We life in a world where every moment SHOULD be spent protecting the fragile life that still, somehow, is only held together by, lets face it, mostly luck and very little planning.  We (citizens of Earth) have this mentality of us versus them, always trying to take more, to be better than our neighbors all around. When will we realize that there is only one planet for all to share?
