the devil you know

"the devil you know" There is a man. He is simple, mediocrely educated. He sits at a desk all day, he files his papers, He goes to lunch with Pam the file girl. But there is a devil inside him. The devil is unsatisfied with his life. The devil does not like his dead-end job. The devil does not like his small desk. The devil does not like his windowless office. The devil does not like Pam. The devil is what urges the man to spend more time scheming. The devil is what urges the man to grow terse, opinionated. The devil whispers to the man; he is simple enough to hear it. "You deserve that corner office. You deserve lovely loo

Bukowski

"Choked Up over Bukowski" Trust your emotions. That first flush of fear, lust, anger, regret. It's your mind telling you what you really want to feel. A knee-jerk reaction to events around you, The instinct to respond and react instantly. Your spontaneous tears, screams, laughter. Let them lead you, rather than restraining them. See where they take you.

Sestina: Rabbit As Symbol

"Rabbit as Symbol For Love Lost"                        39 Lines So tough to let our friendship remain lost, But what's the use when it's found? Too important to leave to indecision, Unimportant enough to be left Amongst the other lingering remains Of our poisoned past on the ground. We watched our love go, like a rabbit gone to ground, This shallow connection lost And what passes for civility remains. What would you, what would I, say if our past were found Where we had dropped it, left Up to ourselves to make a decision. There would be no conviction in that decision.

Rabbit Gone to Ground

So tough to let it remain lost, But what's the use when it's found? Too important to remain an indecision, Unimportant enough to be left Amongst the other lingering remains Of our poisoned past on the ground. We watched it go, like a rabbit gone to ground, Our shallow connection lost And what passes for civility remains. What would we say if it were found Where we had dropped it, left To one another to make a decision. There would be no conviction in that decision. No matter how many seasons passed, ground Covering with snow, leaves, grass and flowers, left To decay, the rabbit of our ties lost, Buried in the clockwork passage

Piracy of a different sort.

Piracy of a different sort.

Though I have written an incredible amount during my time here at TNS, I find it to be hollow. Why? Because of some innate fear of thieves. I let very few people read my work now, due primarily to horror stories told to me by friends here on DeviantArt. I don't want to share because I'm afraid of piracy. How is it that as an artist, as a world builder whose created entire universes for my characters to wander through, I'm scared of someone attempting to pass my own work off as their own? No one has my skill, my talent for creating societies. I'm not being arrogant. I'm merely stating the fact that my worlds are exquisitely my own. Not to

New York.

I've been in graduate school at the Eugene Lang School for Liberal Arts, out of The New School in NYC for an entire semester now. Living here has been a serious dose of culture shock for me. I've met amazing people, but I've also strengthened my old friendships. It's incredible how easy you'll discover who really gives a shit when you move away as far as I have. It's been so much work, though. Going from the top of the pile at my under graduate facility to the very bottom at this new one has been insanely humbling. I'm lucky to have been able to work with the people I have, but getting a reality check on your skill level with a freaking

You are the dreamers. We are the keepers of dreams. Dream for us, darlings. ^^ A haiku I just made up. I know. Its dumb. But I like it. Might put it on a t-shirt. Anyway.... Fall Break is coming up! I wish it was really a break for me. I mean I'm going to Florida for a week, but the whole time I'm there, I'll be working on school work. I'm not pleased about it, but thats just how my procrastinator cards fell. On the bright side, it means I'll be writing for seven days straight, 12-18 hours a day, and while it won't be for pleasure, I will be writing, and thats something. I'll be starting my grad school applications soon, and most

Hey!!! I didn't notice it was you haha.
Thanks for the Watch! and I'm totally adding you to my AIM now that I see yours LOL XD
XD You're welcome! And YAY! I need new friends. I'm a whole lot of pressure on Yvette, I'm sure. I'm entirely too irritating for her, I'd bet.

Actually no. I got jumped for my car.

Terrified of nighttime now though.
