all the world
will explode
with meaning and lessons
golden; it will press on
through space and time,
churn unknowns

cannot see everything,
cannot compose
myself in the face
of progress.
i will
i will wont
my soul to
sans-serif credos,
will spit up
tragedies in holy gardens,
will scrawl my failures
across the face
of dissembling sands.
i'll watch winds
wash my will away,
god with a wave
of his hand
grinding grit
into the wounds of
my feeble carcass.

12. rebel complex
my body
has forgotten how to be
a Body. and i say this
as if i can close my eyes
without tasting the world
through my fingers, as if i
do not take supple steps
on the pale gray carpet
in the still of night while
the world holds its breath. i
have become greedy for
the dark empty shell
of the house. and shearing
sonics from my throat in
the empty garage
instead of the basement
where no one wants
to save them. when we become
flowers i demand
fractals, wrap My arms around My Self
and I will not let go for anything. and so
I exist in My liminal space, truculant and
trembling between sips of sleep. And My
heart flutters when I am still but it is not
a loving thing. It it dressing My Self with
tornado dust strewn on our bedroom floor
and biting at the bit of every blood tie
that tries Me here. because I have spun My Self
to only see the star
in starving
when that hunger is
what hurt Us in
the first place.

Thanks for the llama :happybounce:

I knew a llama once. At least I thought I knew him. I mean, how well can anyone really know anyone, much less a llama. With their air of mystery and thinly veiled contempt. It’s hard. But I digress.
His name was Kevin. But for reasons I will never understand, he would only ever answer to Albert. Identity issues aside, things started out okay. The usual introductory sniffing and sneezing went well, despite his allergies, but then things started going downhill during the ritual licking phase of the pleasantries. We pushed through. And had it not been for the spitting, we might have even been able to make it work, but alas, after just 3 seconds of bittersweet brotherhood, we finally decided to part ways. It’s kind of sad, when you think about it. Spitting seems like such an innocent thing to fight over, but he was pretty adamant that I should stop and that was just never going to happen. We might have overcome that issue, but Kevin, like all llamas, was very competitive. First came the stench competitions. Then it was belching contests. And lastly, a painstaking count to see which one was hairier. You can clearly see why our relationship was doomed. The poor fellow was a bit of a sore loser.
So he snuck out, taking with him a failed friendship, an obliviously optimistic dread of the future, and my sixth favorite toothbrush. Now that he is gone, I can honestly say, it's for the best. He was too much of a chick magnet anyway and who needs that drama? :shakefist:

Full disclaimer, as Kevin’s official biographer, a position of which he blackmailed me into (don’t ask), I’ve been instructed to inform you about his ongoing series. The journey starts here with The Kevin Chronicles - Chapter 1, and this gallery contains the rest. You should check it out.

*End of cue card*

And don't worry, they're pretty short.
No pressure though, only if you want.
