I’ve Been Writing More Privately This Year

I’m still writing. I’m always writing. But in 2019 I’ve been doing it more privately. Google Docs everywhere like Slacks within Slacks within Slacks like turtles all the way down, only masks.

If you want to see what I’ve been up to — it’s nothing special / it’s more of the same — just holler.

The Way You Wind Your Arms

There’s the wind and the road
There’s rivers and righteousness

There’s the way I check myself out in the mirror
And the way it changes with where I’m at

There’s the way you check yourself
At all the right times

We’ll both find out
Just not together

Just for Today

The Jittery and the Long Take
Left for dead
An abandoned video rental in an abandoned mini-mall
B-malls, b-sides, be nice
And smile, the movies starting
Smile, my program’s on
Smile, there are kids starving somewhere

I mean, things change and we change with them

I got I got I got royalty and loyalty and fresh pink lemonade

Bel Air outside Baltimore

Benihana in Georgetown

You can’t make this shit up

The peepers outside swelling as the rest of your night settles in

We’re Talking about How We Do Things

There’s things you can expect and patterns are math

Conversation across a room, scene setting

Or how the brain just locks up all four sometimes

Some when and you’ll see me

Some who dead set and dead in your sites

Why is where you’ll find the colorblindness but nobody is waiting for a decision

Sweet and salt come together and we’re sloughing off flesh in hunks

One more time one more depth

Like radius says to perimeter you scale these steps one last time

Because I’m Loving All the Things I Love

While digging out of holes
And trying to jump gullies
Splashing puddles
And spitting souls

These marks are true
These days are long
And your eyes are dragging
But that’s ok

Train stations because train lines
Like long lines like nothing

Here and gone because here and now

The World Isn’t Coming Apart Even as It’s Coming Apart

Location:Thanon Maha Rat,Bangkok,Thailand

Good Good, Yeah Yeah

Apple, singular and origin stories (plural)

Bent to ground, bent to the sun, bending around walls living and not

Clarifying statements, context is everything, the speed of light in a vacuum oh isn’t that clever

Define what and where and when and why, defy reason with reversals, defy gravity with belief

Everything everything everything everything you can kiss

Forget about this and that, but leave the forgettable

Grounded two by two, grateful come supper

Hidden, no more hiding, no more harassing, and hope and higher and healthy

Islands and effort and fantasy and effort and ice cream but for all the if if ifs

Circles in the Air, Circles in the Water

You can do it

There’s a cat that’s an Italian Boss

There’s a cat that believes in all manner of rocks

There are celestial bodies. There are!

I’m listening and processing

I have so much eating to do
