Written Quickly on a Plane Before Takeoff

I was thinking about single words the other day and whether stripping them down to themselves would let them take on all their meanings.

Like race
Or tear

But then I thought they'd just take on the first meaning that came to someone when they saw it, because that tends to be all the attention anything gets or deserves in a big big big world.

There's lots to do

And then I thought about it taking on all those meanings by being in so many heads, but then thought who'd get to get that

And I thought about all this scifi I'd been reading

And robots

Then databases

And spreadsheets

That leaps over to watches for me and timezones and train travel

And I'm sitting on a plane that is going to fly but isn't just yet.

So So So All Things

It's the second one
It's when living things accidentally sound like machines
It's all the wonders, I mean all the pessimistic ones

Everything swarms
Everything in swarms
Everything on my mind

Time for some coffee

Stories leave things out and stories end

All this existing

Things keep coming forward

Am I supposed to list them here?

You're just going to have to miss so many things because that's the way the system works

I mean time and place
I mean appointments essentially
And after that bylines

We're still building with blocks, for the most part, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that

And we're swimming in streams
Our eyes are open
Always wider

When you get the algorithms right it never ends

And then you have all this time to think about what right is

As obvious as that sounds
As obvious as deer in the backyard

And the shrubs they find so delicious

To All the Things I Try Not to Break and Try Not to Buy

I've got a pocketful of #latergrams that are so damn sun-filled and so damn fine

Is this something you can handle, you know, readily

Full-faith partnership is the fucking jam

What am I doing?
...with time
...with all these pillows

Some people depend on me

And other things can't be taken back

I don't mean to talk at you like this

Stop stop stop start stop stop

Story time, clock towers, one-hour photo shops, layers of laughter, later days vs. later in the day

You can make a bouquet of anything just like you make a day of everything

Don't give in to the tyranny of shapes

It all looks good on you

Beds in the Streets of London or You Have Time to Spare

I don't recall gargling broken glass before going to bed, but there you have it

All kinds of things travel through the air and signs point to that being only more the case through the 21st century

What would an exact picture be?

That strip of land on either side of our border with Canada where nobody is allowed to build stuff

Followed by an entire troupe of deaf dancers

And then more on trends

And then plus, plural, plenty, and a bunch of stars

Start start start stand by

Groups of people born around here do things and we call them local things

That strip of land all along our border with Mexico with all sorts of things -- grass, a fence, some water, checkpoints, open country

There is this thing like gravity

And nobody knows what's up with gravity in the first place

But still

Somewhere Something Gained Ground

When I say later, whose later

I have a list of things I'm working on

You'll be surrounded by people all the time

He'll have a book, she'll have a drink, they'll file in and file out

That's the thing about order

On paper orderly and lull get so close to one another, but in reality I'm a back and change

I like to eat -- I like it a lot

We share space

You get blurry, alone or as a group

We all want the pictures to mean something and they keep happening

There's a river

There's a schoolhouse

Don't leave out the atmosphere


There you have it

Long Lines Meditation Blues #Latergram

Some grills are shinier than others

Some otters are expensive or orphaned or born in captivity

Original patterns are a thing

And actions are acting over everyone all the time

A closer is a thing in baseball

And there are other things that exist whether you believe in them or not

Spring is always approaching

Summer is always approaching

And Fall is my favorite season year after year

The contents of our lives

How Is That Even Comfortable

Embed this

What have you deleted?

Days, ways, veins

Tomorrows, tenuous temperaments

Things decay, that is how things do

Simple syrup

Deceptive somethings

Weather on weather on weather on weather

Wearer of what, wearer or who

We Put It All Together and Then and Then

Double tough plus good

Or shorten it up or too strong now

A plane to the coast

A plan for et cetera

Coats and solar assist and social this or that

Do you remember Jason Dove and the Magic Whip? That's how you name a band, people

Do you remember the last commercial you saw?

Do you remember your childhood phone number?

I mean what I said

I wander

There's fashion and then there is this

So So So Many Many Things Things Will Happen

All your favorites at the bottom of a well

Sad sad well

Happy treasures, trespassing, signature sounds

Roll it up to get it through the door

But turntables

But Halifax's own

But what else do you expect

But you drank your drink too fast

I traded lucky for magic and then magic for boredom

My feet are up, my boots are on the floor, my hat is on a chair

Get your priorities straight

It's Monday all over again

Something Like After the Fact

Then he said

Whatever which were

Where wear when

These and ever after

Scale south, scale salvage

Safer salvation

Safer waters

Safe whenever you want to

You keep doing things

So Many Definitions And Whatsmore What Could Be

Wrapped in one thing on the way to being wrapped in another

We manufactured it all and the surfaces, too

And the internal monologues and names for storms

Rivers, paths, fronts, the different fins on the different fish

We find it all

We find it everyday

And there are songs

Later Liars Lane

Library splices
Dirt on dirt on dirt on dirt
Sort it out better

Good on war
Good on feelings
Good for all your days and nights

Severed scepters find foundered heads
Wants are to be stated next
Couples came last

You find it creepy
She finds it too typical
Bandages ringing
