Voice of a Fallen Tree

You, visitor in my woods, see me laying on my Mother, roots to the sky, and think "dead tree" or "so sad." Let me tell you, you are wrong. The insects that could not live in me when my sap ran have found a home in my dry wood, weave their trails upon my bark. Amidst my roots, covered in clay and dirt, live lizards, safe and warm. Though my branches don't reach as high, nests are still built upon them. My leaves that were, give comfort to the ground, and the seeds of me have been sown on the winds and grow in distant lands. I serve a purpose well beyond my supposed death. When I finally rot and fall apart, I will be the

Professional Eulogist

The only dry eye Belongs to the perennial pallbearer. His countenance cold, even in Kelvin. Pine forests falling, Fields somewhere filling with his friends, They're carving out quarries And ghostwriting eulogies. People wonder aloud what's wrong with him. He knows Dionysus drowns more men, Than Poseidon. Venus takes more lives than Mars, Walking on traintracks, Eyes crossed like stars. Hoods up, Heads down. There's no ghosts left in this town. In a real city of angels, In a time called black suit season, Death is a dial tone.

Well, I polished the dust off my Manhattan tablet, found the pen for it, and finally bought new software. I still love my old workhorse, Paint Shop Pro 9, but I wanted some other stuff and Art Rage Studio Pro gets me good tools for a reasonable amount of money. I'll probably bounce back and forth on the software, depending on what I want to do, but I've expanded my horizons considerably.
