Cadence (2)

At that moment, I felt so euphoric that I was sure I had died. Somehow. Supernaturally. Metaphorically. Spiritually. “Every life transition has its “zero hour,” that moment when everything that came before it is different from everything that comes after. “ This was the quote that did it. The words that threw me over the…

Cadence (1)

Barefeet soiled and fingers burnt, I didn’t even have to ask his mother as I shut the door behind me, bringing the chaos within my mind to a harmonic close, once and for all. “It’s a tower where the Big Bang was first discovered,” she offered me, instinctively. After an eerie silence, she continued on,…

Treat Your Mother Well.

And she said, “Treat your Mother well because there’s a special place in hell for you her trip her on the wire while she waits to call you liars, where the words soak deep and break every bone; the one that came before you and the one that stands alone. When the bow breaks, the…

The River.

There’s a river out West that runs between the banks of Right and Wrong, when the storms travel East; no one’s perspective but our own. One side carves shallow grooves, but swiftly, like ligthtening over the summit … FLASH! And it’s gone and no one remembers until it’s too late. This is what it’s like…

Grubography.

I’ll just leave some of my meals right here. I should reconsider my career choices.

Star

There is this star that glimmers beyond the branches of a tree out back. Small as it may be, it caught my eye. Not everything needs to shout and not everything needs to hustle. Steadfast, beyond the grave, it shimmers tonight, reminding me of you. Not because you embody it’s presence, but maybe more because…

Razor’s Edge.

There’s a razor’s edge between our tongues that cuts us through our core. I loved you once and I love you still in the space where we want more. More of life and laughter, and a future where it lay between two hearts. The bleeding and pulsing that it sliced between this part: The part…

Between the Land of Nod & Wakefulness.

Between the Land of Nod and Wakefulness, lay a string of gold; A resting place for how far you’ve come and all that you’ve been told. Between the Land of Nod and Wakefulness … it seems … there’s a place to rest your head, a place to wander through the night as you slip into…

There is a Field.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Where the herons fly in solitude, Through serenity, And where the swallows lap the air. Where souls stand to conquer demons And the angels take up their wings, Where dissonance disappears And euphoria bellows and sings. Where everything in between…

Secrets of the Universe, Blueprint #1.

Last night I had a dream that I was the first to discover where all of our positive thoughts and good intentions go during Mercury Retrograde. “It’s because Mercury rules communication, clear thinking, truth and travel, so when the planet goes retrograde — which means that it looks like it’s going backwards in the sky…

“Ten Fingers & Ten Toes.”

“Ten fingers and ten toes” Is a measure of good health, they say. But dancing on Daddy’s dugout, Now that’s how we know you weren’t led astray. Still waters run deep But the shallow end is where you play, But dancing on Daddy’s dugout, Now that’s how we know you weren’t led astray. The rain…

Lost & Found.

There’s a powerade in the corner And a ring that’s etched in stone; A heavy lifter of all things mental And a girl that can’t be left alone. As Dionysus cuts their throats And the captions repeat their words, The moon rises chasing reason, As the Sun splits the sky in thirds. There’s a star…
