O teller of tall tales.
It is in the cadence of your words, like soft
footfalls down a long hallway,
punctuated by
pauses as you feel your way in the dark.
Certain that you are making your way
toward something, yet hesitant enough about what
you will find there, you
choose to
fill in the cracks of light with bits of story:
A carefully crafted shape of language,
stuffed into door-frames and floorboards,
which keeps the sound from carrying.

You tuck phrases into my ears as soft
wrinkles of sound like delicate leaves
slipped between pages of vellum.

splitting the atom
isn't the only way to
crack open the world.

I have had this album on repeat in the car for several days. On the drive home tonight from places I shouldn't have been, it was just this song. Over and over with the moonroof open despite the cold, and Orion guiding my way.

Sometimes, I just need a reminder:

Because when all is said and done, there is only one thing you can really do to counter it all. There is only one approach that works almost every single time, in every case.

To avoid karmic meltdown and utter disgusted nausea and suicidal tendencies and the bashing of one's skull into the brick wall of cultural ignorance six hours a day: You work on you. This is the only thing you can really do. What, too boring? Hardly.

You think it's easy to do everything in your power on a day-to-day basis to crank your divinity and suck the big toe of your own personal Jesus and discover that the god you seek is actually you, is your true Self, and beam that healthy sexy wet individual robustness out to your immediate world every day, minimize the refined sugar and the garbage food and the stomping of the planet and maximize the orgasmic sighs and the organic highs and the holistic everything? Verily, 'tis not.

You kiss with everything you've got. You love deep, make love with full intent, feel the divine's hot breath on your skin at every possible moment, buy the best wine you can afford, read your ass off, cherish your body, get lots of sleep, hunker down, scream your joy. There.

memphis is flooding, and i know that even if i leave these words here, you won't find them.

the mississippi crests, spills, washes clean the places we loved and left behind.







my life is so much better now, and so far from there.
