The dusk was still and heavy,
with darkness drawing near.
My feet began to stumble,
when I should chance to hear.
The coming of a shower
with lightning flashing bright.
You could not see me glower,
concealed by the night.
I stumble on more frequently
beneath my heavy load.
And wonder how I chanced to find,
this dark and lonely road.
The storm is getting closer now;
I soon shall be quite wet.
And not a car should pass me by,
or even stop, I'll bet.
But not far off into the dark
I think that I can see,
a pair of headlights cut the night.
I hope they stop for me.
The vehicle approaches now;
a strange and awesom
The hurt that's deep, the pains we keep.
Remove our hearts from harm.
When passion's felt with fleeting feet
we cry out in alarm.
And bury love, a shallow grave;
are we so afraid to live?
To reap the pain, or rich reward,
when our hearts do we give.
Have no remorse, don't feel regret.
Lethargy's not your friend.
If life's not what you're doing now
has your soul met its end?
Don't close yourself, experience,
a teacher to us all.
For soon enough the strongest fortress
meets its bitter fall.
Surround yourself with emptiness;
find out too late it's true.
How quickly life, and all it holds,
is swept away from you.
A Measure of Prejudice
Two millimeters of difference,
between myself, and another.
Judgments measured, wars waged
within this insignificant space.
Neither a lack of apocrine glands or melanine
as noticeable to trained guard dogmas.
Stray thoughts, like stray bullets.
You never know when you'll be struck
by your own ricocheted inanity.
Or the drive by conditioning of another.
Who is approximately two millimeters different than you.
well..not really. just trying to update a little. I will keep this account because of the wonderful comments I have on some of my work, from people whom I sorely miss and respect greatly.
I have been horrible about updating, replying, etc. I keep promising to turn over a new leaf, but instead it seems I just get busier. it has not been for nothing though. I have found myself becoming completely immersed in what I love most about life, that being art, and music..and of course Joji. who is very vocal about his demands..and that is mostly "DADDY DADDY DADDYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!"
so it's already August. I have survived Joji's second birthday. I will p
trying to reaffirm my online time has been a struggle. sorry if it seems like I made a bunch of empty promises way back in...October? Yeesh..time flies. I have not been idle. to the contrary, I have been more busy than ever. I am getting some work together for a show and I am also trying to get turntableconspiracy.com online. I will post a meesage here when I get it closer to completion. It has involved me getting my hands dirty doing some actual reading about how to do web design..something I am NOT cut out to do. I am just too darned chaotic and disorganized for that, but I shant whine anymore. I have too much to do. I will try to get somet
kind of like an unearthed mummy. I am all half rotten and stuff. I think I need to change these bandages.
ah..hello. it's nice to be back, but my god these cobwebs! I will be cleaning up my gallery soon. If you fancy anything in it now is a good time to download.
My apologies to anyone who has dropped by and found me absent. To those who have been loyal friends throughout. I thank you. I have been in a tumult of sorts for the past couple of years. The tumult of course is not through, but I have found my way to a bit of driftwood which I can cling to. I realized after a while that I am incapable of doing everything I am asked. I try to be th
yes I did..and I love watching your newscasts every night! are you really one of those lucky queeneanners..that's gotta be the most awesome view in seattle! I've gone to a couple of events at the japanese consulate up there..and between the food and the view..I am always in heaven. I have seriously considered hiding in the rose garden before everyone gets kicked out..camping out on the lawn..watching the stars wheel overhead..and listening to the sounds of the city below. I hate you queenanne peeps..you are just too darned lucky! nice avatar btw....I would not back up too quickly if I were you.
