Shadow Wings Dress me in shadow wings Flesh blends to one race of night and void. But the shadows orchestrate the sun, Thinking of the warmth and newness of the day below galaxies of spiraling stars Riding the amplitudes of darkness, each bursting bubble an infrequent upsurge of glamorous spells Untenable and beyond comprehension.Dress me in Shadow wings Like a dragonfly who cannot produce fire Colors scintillating into the ether Weaved and flossed Moon reflections reflecting. Nothing soothes the night.
Rapture Silver shadows leap like gazelles,lightning bends the dark,the candle bends our will.With every breath betweenI dream of the dopaminerushyour lips quiveryour hips riseand we move beyondvibrant eons of holy light.
Novelist Rain gently pats the roofOffering wet perceptionAnd the ink blots spreadInto blurred patternsThis is reality.Keys, the new paintbrush of linguistic imaginationAttuned to the heartbeat of silence,The ecstasy of zero.A thousand screams, a thousand pains–for a moment, the horizonlines with warriors for someone else’s war.The past is just the pastForever with me washed with the blue tint of winter.
As I’ve mentioned, I placed a personal ad on Craig’s List, since that site gets so much traffic, in the hopes of meeting local women for dates and friendship. I made my personality and intentions clear in this ad, and I still get offers that floor me. The latest was from a woman who obviously did not understand what type of person I am. Her mail to me: Hi, my name is Twila. I am 51 years old. shaved, lez, D&D free, VERY oral and VERY interested in your ad. I love to shop, dine out, watch chick flix, sleep-in …Continue reading →
Still thinking about this electronic cigarette thing and how the Powers the Be are seemingly determined to undermine it. Here’s a few ideas: SCENARIO ONE: An American company forms an alliance with the Chinese manufacturers of the electronic cigarette, they build a manufacturing facility in the U.S. This not only creates a substantial number of jobs in a new technology, it decreases cancer and other smoking-related illness, and healthcare costs also decrease since the bottom falls out of that portion of healthcare expenses, and it helps American economy woes. That’s not just a win-win. That’s a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN. SCENARIO TWO: (in …Continue reading →
I’m in Wal-Mart, in the middle of the night, as I often am, when I shop, due to my weird sleep schedule. It’s also easier and faster to shop in the middle of the night because there are no lines. But there are lots of stock-people. I wanted some bookends of the heavy-object variety, rather than the thin metal ones that slide under the books. I had already seen those in the office supply aisle. I stopped one of those stock-guys to ask, “Do you have bookends?” “Book-ins?” he says. Yes a gathering of people in libraries all night with …Continue reading →
Yeah. Just as I suspected. Floxy turned out to be……..A spam-I-Need-your-help-in-the-form-of-your wallet…what do you think I should do, Dear Readers? Maybe I should contact her and tell her I am heartbroken that she only wanted my money and that I thought she might be “the one” and I want to marry her and have lots of babies. Hello Dearest , Thanks for your responds, i wen’t through your profile and fined it intresting the expression of love , How are you today?I hope this massage will find you in the best of your health, I really like to have a …Continue reading →
Whenever I watch a movie on FEARnet, I expect it to be a gory, slasher kind of thing. Most people who know me, know that I don’t like slasher movies…what I would call gratuitous violence. This is exemplified with all the popular fare that includes some teenager wandering into the dark room, and having their head cut off with piano wire, or a scantily clad blond receiving a railroad spike in her forehead. This, for me, goes over a line. But in the interest of entertainment, suspense, or the elucidation of human nature, i do enjoy watching how writers render …Continue reading →
Mirror-posted from my forum, Vaporist[new comments in red] Submitted to World Health OrganizationI must protest about the comments made by Douglas Bettcher in an article here: In it, Bettcher is attributed to the statement that, “The World Health Organization says there is absolutely no scientific evidence that the electronic cigarette is a legitimate nicotine replacement therapy that can help people quit smoking real cigarettes.” I know of at least ONE study. My response would be STUDY ME. This is what I KNOW: I was a tobacco cigarette smoker for 25 years and I tried every other way available to quit, …Continue reading →
The fun never ends. I joined a site called SuperViva, which is like 43things or the bucket list, where you list your life goals. I didn’t expect this membership to generate personal mails, but dang if it didn’t. Now I don’t know if this is just one of those advertising/spam sort of things where they are just trying to get you to join some other site or not. Either it’s that, or this is some Russian girl who wants a green card, or it’s actually a person who thinks her note will make me drop everything and beg her to …Continue reading →
In response to a recent blog, (Ditto) a friend of mine mentioned that maybe the person I wrote about would not ever try to communicate with me about the situation, for fear it might end up in another blog. But I only write about people that way if they have been moved to the negative column, so her argument dissolves at the start. Had this person accepted the many opportunities to communicate with me, the blog would not have been written. She chose not to. As I said in that blog: “There’s an upside to this vocation that offers some …Continue reading →
[this is a writing exercise I do, wherein I take a list of unrelated subjects and phrases in my files (or through suggestions from readers) and try to connect them in prose…and it’s usually humorous. It also teaches you how to construct segues. The items in this list are, Pariahs, Torches, Movies & Sex Toys.] so…here we go…. I am a pariah. I know this, though the usual response from my friends to this proclamation is a dismissive, “No you’re not…you’re just rare and wonderful.” Like a good steak. So I’m only good for a food source.One of my biggest …Continue reading →
The word “Ditto” means another of the same, a duplicate, a copy. What I have been experiencing here, with people, is ditto. Just when I might feel my faith in people resurrecting, a little ditto happens and that faith is relegated to ashes again. Is everyone a ditto? I can’t possibly be the only one who feels this way, so why can’t I ever find those people? And why can’t one of them be my partner so that I can stop stumbling over the corpses of my own discontent? Writing can be solitary, and writing can be thankless. Real writers …Continue reading →
For the first time in a long time, I feel that there might just be better things on the horizon for me. I had a phenomenal 6+ HOUR conversation last night on the phone, and it made me so happy to have such great rapport with someone. Communication is vital to me, and last night was a validation of why it’s such an important part of my life. I have always enjoyed what i call “brain sex”–that is, engaging someone intellectually in a way that is so satisfying and inspiring, that you feel some chemical in your brain has been …Continue reading →
Things seem to be trending my way. Anyone who knows my recent history knows that that is a milestone all by itself. I have been too isolated for a long time and have been trying to arrange a relocation to the Denver/Boulder area, but that’s a process that will take some time. Meanwhile, I wanted to have a social life again. So I placed an ad on Craig’s List. Now, if someone had told me this before, I would have done Craigslist instead of the 40 other dating sites. Hands down, I have had more luck meeting women because of …Continue reading →
