Winning Sometimes

Sometimes winning is like wrestling a greased pig.

Sometimes winning is simply stepping on the court.

Sometimes winning is everything.

Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism

Winning is great, sure

Winning is everything to catch up on

Sometimes winning is actually setting your sights on what everyone around you says is impossible.

Winning is not a sometime thing

Winning is for losers

Sometimes winning is just getting back on.

Winning is forever.

Winning is not enough.

Sometimes winning is losing.

Winning is a choice.

Winning is to campaign with joy.

Winning is my motherfuckin' protocol.

Winning is to be kind.

Winning is no accident.

Winning is finishing.

Winning is her goal.

Winning is fun, but it teaches you nothing.

Winning is half the bummer.

Sometimes winning is a dramatic kiss-the-ground kind of experience.

Sometimes winning is just surviving.

Sometimes winning is quitting.

Sometimes winning is no fun at all.

Because Morning Is Here Quickly and Robots Are Your Friends

What do we have to do with the best?

What do we have to do that is not an issue?

What do we have to do with the other side of the best?

That when which which where what when

You can get the same as the best

They pick up trash weekly in this neighborhood

I shower daily, for the most part

Parties aren't just for partying

Eating isn't just for eating

I get this thing and I walk it around to all my friends, my family, the people I know, the people I work with

I have a car and I drive it -- sometimes to work, sometimes to the train station, sometimes other places

You have these opinions, you know

You have ways things work out

You have ways you think things will work out and then ways you think things should work out

You learn all the important words early

You straddle worlds and cultures and that matters more for some people than for others

You can add up numbers

It's been one of those weeks in one of those seasons in one of those years

Did you ever play with a spirograph?

I mean if you didn't, I think you should

I bet you can get one real easy online

Make sure you eat something

Like a Table

I'm not.
I'm not.
I'm not.
I'm not.

There was a guy that just had thumbs.

There was a guy who lived for music.

There was a guy that was the best of all.

There were afternoons that you just let go of.

There were evenings that were full of heat and expectations.

There were mornings piling up outside your door.

Nothing to do with Monday

Everything to do with style points

Tiles, clouds, other elements, journeys, agility

We keep trying to make the thinnest layer so we keep trying.

It's All Practice, Now

I have a hankering for a fighter right now -- are they making any good fighters anymore?

I want something to eat, too

Something salty

And something to drink that's cold and delicious

Things really can be that simple if you let them

New keyboard? No problem

There's some perfect balance of violence and centering and perspective that keeps it all together

Why sweat the unravelling before The Unravelling? It's a disrespectful waste of these raveled times

I could tell you things about my life and my family

We could take stock of all the spaces between things and be like Oh snap!

A wall is made brick by brick if it's a brick wall

The grass here is pretty with dandelions here and there

All the ping pong balls are dented, but you'd expect that by August

The sun, the sun, the sun

You Have Walls, You Have a Roof, You Have Things

Earlier, you have fences

You have stones and you arrange them in piles

You look in front of you, you turn your head to look behind you, there is the sun in the sky

People come and go, you'll see

Like that guy with the scraggly beard before kids had beards, on the porch

That guy, he liked Chinese food

Who doesn't?

And ghosts and math equations and fireworks

What I'm trying to say is that you have everything and then what?

Live by the woods and you'll hear cicadas at night, it's that simple

Live in the city and maybe live by the woods at the same time

People have all these kinds of things they do all the time

They've been doing these tricks with lenses for hundreds of years

But a good trick is a good trick

There is this one with a car and a couple thousand miles of roads travelled in a few days time

And you remember it forever

Much or Muchly, Mulching Mower, Mine

Trigger everything

What's going on with your voicemail

One hand and then the world

We're always remaking everything

A dozen, a score, and then what

The sun isn't up yet

Things that melt over weeks or months

You've gotten your spice rack just where you want it

The sounds of night things in the woods at night

Saying what you mean

The light of your phone, so bright on your face and you are squinting

I'll Get to This Later / I'll Get to You Later

One who hasn't slept is cute

One who is wrapped in a blanket is normally cute

Everything kittens rubbing their tired little eyes

And bunnies

And bloodshed, adds the ain't-slept mind

But hush hush we're still flying

Everything slippery forever after

And so it's always been? Maybe not

But it has been quickly and for some long while

Turtles have baby turtles, it is their way

Tires get old and sometimes get burned on the edge of a lake, such is their way to the dismay of nearby vacationers

What if things had a past tense, too? Think of all the fun you could have

Sliding is a thing

Put a ring around all your favorite things

Fresh flowers and seafood and sunshine

Where cats go so goes extinction which is a real pisser

Like your life being built on so many things that would disgust you or are currently disgusting you

Are you the betting type?

All the Free Things #Latergram

what all that is

I don't when which which

That then the Republic those there elms then that then which oak

Seasoned oak and some pine combusting

Discomfort settles in the lungs in allergy season and virus and bacteria

Protein, more protein, sunshine

Little loops of nothing tangled up with little loops of something

Everything everything everything everything

One short because this is this year and not that year

I mean century

You can tell so much about me and I about you

Spin the wheel, place your tokens, spin the wheel, celebrate, shuffle on

You'll do what you want with the spaces

Bits of Broken Matchsticks

There are all these ages and the layers of sediment they left behind

Robot plows do the strangest things with equations and GPS, which is more equations

The atmosphere is full of trace elements like any good story

And I keep thinking about a pile of matchsticks

Or piles of matchsticks

Rows, cross-hatched, bundled on an end, broken and jumbled up

Did you grow up with Lincoln Logs?

I did

Have you been to Lincoln, Nebrasksa?

Do you have a favorite President?

A favorite time of day?

I like to keep it close

I miss the occasional ice cream binge

Accumulation and/or Cactus Mentality

It sounds good to have been a metal kid, but I wasn't a metal kid

And my allergies rolled up on my tonight

Before that making drinks, drinking, eating, baseball on TV

Each day full of a day's worth of decision

Each day a little bit shorter now

And keep on saying it quieter and quieter and we're all crouching down until late December and you got it

Every time you are dancing and that song comes on it's probably gonna be a good time if you let it

You got your cellphones and your pictures and your hashtags and your good times

You've got your bed and your sheets and your roof over your head

You have a toolbox of tools and a bag of tricks and wooden cross beams and places you like to go

Like, want, need, forget

Naive, national, nature, nine more

Tracks, I mean

Cornering and decisions and going

All Sorts of Treachery Captured for Your Viewing Pleasure

All the sentries you can remember

Scores and scores, scoring, scouring, scrounging

Everything divisible if you have patience and enough decimals

Everything you've shouted and heard shouted

Give thanks for this roof over our head

All the better to project

And thunder that shook the whole house -- have you been there for that and for real? -- it's much more than what you've read

You can cross your fingers or press your palms against one another and it's not the same but you're getting there

What you do with your hair on a humid Sunday

What you do for lunch

That episode where Magnum's dad says tells kid Magnum has to tread water for 24 hours because then he'll be saved and then present-day Magnum treading and treading

Storms will happen all summer

Most clapboard is weathered

And perfect skies will look fake for generations
