A new decade of musings from poetry to what inspires.
I've read poetry that opened my eyes, realize now mine have been closed when I write.

The drive north is easier than south in summer.



If you only write when inspired, you may be a fairly decent poet, but you'll never be a novelist. -NEIL GAIMAN

And here I am


A new start for an old blog -- replaced by "Black Hole Super Nova Afterglow, now at capacity as of 2018, focused on specific writing projects and goals:

BOOK

Having no specific aim going forward...

I've hammered away at this glass with forefinger since resurrecting in 2014. I'm always ready to say too weary. Compulsion compels me, instigation informs, and still here I am...bright, full of light and dark, revealing hidden colors and shapes. That was before...
I hear what you are saying...but especiallly...what you are not.
Yes, I struggle. But I'm getting through it. How are you?

I've gone by other aliases. People remind me of that. Sometimes restrained, it's hard to understand what I write. It will be clear some day. Hard to hide what's in my heart. I'm making no apologies going forward for my feelings. Not interested in the trap of stereotypes. Not sure how we'll feel about that.

What I used to say: 'Maybe, I just don't get it. Watch me fumble with my version of reality, expose ignorance as truth. You don't have to get me, either. But, wish someone would explain me to myself.'Now that I've figured out the ever changing rules of your game, you take the ball away, no longer engage me to play. You pay a price for this kind of friendship. I lose, I guess.


"Birdie


You can't just read the parts that confirm (or can be construed as such out of context) your opinion of me, you mentally-stunted Neanderthal.
What? Oh, that? It's just a, ah, self-motivational speech I've been working on.
What? Yes, I should try to make it less negative. *RollEyes*

Rise To It

Bonded by mysterious responses in the humid air
only we two share.
Half composed sentences linger,
unable to strike a chord
on that opening note.

Our glances could become stares,
if one of us dared.
We happily shoulder the space between,
assumed platonic,
purpose binds our union.

If light shoulders the sun
upon our horizon, will we
rise to it?

PJ Harvey
Mess We’re In

Strumming strings in your white gown, I linger,
humming my hymns in heartfelt ignorance.

Please don’t give up on me before I give up
on myself, plying your anthems unattuned.

This gravel, smoothing, rises above the small buildings,
bound eternal like damnation to hard ground.

Your ignorance strums sweet bliss I yearn match,
agony gripping tight these tender-meaning chords.

Bittersweet, our symphony attempted, you know
all the cues, lining sounds with concrete words.

Our divise harmony, raining on rooftops, separates
my voice; never waves like a red banner for you,

fly like love, aiming not to hit hard the sharpest
pitches where my songs catch like errant balloons.

This emblematic cape draped around my neck tangles,
fumbling down in a clump at your careless feet.

You take your harmonic instrument to an open street;
chain me to the hydrant, just so I can see you go.
