Incantation (Draft)

Waste break waste
Waste not water waste
Cover cover clover kind
Leaven leaven leave it lies
Family fraught fights in fire
Friendly frames and fines and spines
Like spirals spent or rent or rendered rinds
And then and then and then and then
And now

It’s December Is What’s Next

I found this hiding in my local drafts. I guess it didn’t publish back when I wrote it — which from the language and All seems like it must’ve been in early November some time.

(I was away from here all November as I worked on a novel-that-became-a-novella-to-be over here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZLHWNsyWO5iRZ3NZfJynWRvQIIC4tuyVjhDkjKehHJY ... I don't know if that link is going to work, I'm a little limited here. Anyway it's good to be back to thumb-typing what with the novel-now-novella being mostly finger-types, but true to form I snuck some thumb-typed sections in there and it'll be interesting to see if I can spot the difference when I start editing in a few months. And it'll also be interesting to see what I do with it / about it if I can spot it. More? Less? As a device? And so on.)

Things change you

What do they call these shades that are translucent or semi-transparent or whatever like the opposite of black out shades

Haze out
Wash out
Filter
But "out" is the wrong word what's the word for "half out" instead or Quarter or 10%

You've used photoshop you get what I mean

There are those slides everywhere

God bless the Bronx for what they did or wherever else the cross fade came from

Who gets there first vs. who gets there the loudest vs. fuck all y'all

Hands in the air like like like

Heads nod like like like like

I don't know what you need from me and I don't know what I need so here we are as in here comes 2017 like whoah

Apple blossoms? Rain gaps? Fantasy everything?

Press accuses careerism while forever forevers ever

After which after who after when

I mean, who that which. Which because. That this that there.

Pause-breathe, think-exhale, smile-double, step-step like snap.

Sometimes You’re All Like Fuck Everything

Shit’s gonna let you down

Like up it down and East is what it is

And sure, you can roll hard or roll deep or roll out

But Friday Jr. is just that and these hands are these

I mean migrating birds and their giant Vs

I mean the your hands and your days and your ways

What are you gonna do?

And what were you thinking before I asked?

The dog holding a cup, with the picture of a dog holding a cup and you get it

It’s Gonna Come to Everyone

Black much closer

Hold it in your hand because you’re always holding it

That which is vs. that which was

The can in toucan and the day in yesterday

Because pack animals know what’s going on

And everyone’s not lucky enough to fly

Hollow bones? No shit

Victor Hugo Did His Thing Most Decembers

All manner of things

Salt boxes before snowdrifts and whiskers on kittens

The original flow neither original nor flowing

Pinecones and peanut butter

Big eyes, big heads, or long legs — life is full of possibilities

The way efficiency admits mortality

All the morals gather around me

A firepit, Amish craftsmanship, AppleCare

A down on her luck reporter and the scoop of the century

You don’t know what it’s like in here

The math can get complex in these parts

All those millions of years a photon spends trying to break free, then a big and vast nothing that’s just short of empty

Once again it’s all about the rounding errors

Some lessons take a while

They Lay the Tracks and You’ll Go Where They Go

They lay the tracks and you go where they go
This day and this day and this day

Like that you are feeling curious and what do you look

Like that you don’t have any crushes or whatever

Like that you can get your mind off your chest

Don’t worry about the coming week

And I have no idea what I was

What that what which what now and now and so and now and now

That which was

That which will help

Days and tags and ways and so

They control the stops and they have a little more patience ain’t that the truth

You control the bricks, the stream, the intakes and outputs

Make it any day of the week, put the sun at any angle and draw again

Another Day Not Necessarily Anything to Do with Dollars

I guess that is an owl after all

So many things in threes, so many things in so many situations

A basket as a quantity even while a shopping cart is a concept

We’re starting to get what sharing is all about

We see a mess, we see the world

Many learn to swim at a young age, what’s the stat on those that don’t?

Different and able, here’s Sunday

For the hungry we make a meal

For the weary, here’s a blanket, a couch, a pillow

Purpose is mine
Purpose is mine
Purpose will be mine

Closing time isn’t about cute closings
You get yourself home safe, nobody’s watching
