I just had Facebook remind me of a forgotten poem from EXACTLY 5 years ago.

I and you, embers living for hours
The slow lick, fiery tongue on hot coal
No flame this, warm sweetness and shadow
Slow moments, crawling as wood meets it's match
Completeness, a burning without concern of loss
Now timeless, you and I burn eternal as we part

This was WAY before I even started willing pursuing poetry as the muse strikes. I'm almost weirded out by the intensity of it, but kinda proud of forgotten past-me!

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

I just found a drunk note to myself in my desk. It says:

"If you know what and how to sell things, you can tell social scientists what to study, by writing about what you want to know".
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Just don't FB and drink for now. I suspect sobriety has fled and folks now have a proxy to get angry through, but mostly under real names. Going to be fun to see the PROFOUND info powers of the various "intelligence" agencies come under Donnie's perview, well his people anyway. Other than having an apocalyptic nazi cult influence the most unlikely of executives ever to sit in office this worries me most. He's the kind of guy to delegate and just want "summaries" from his own trusted few. He will probably never truly know half of what he signs off on and what he might willingly and knowingly greenlight under seal is bad enough for bedtime consideration, let alone what he may never hear of directly or incidentally support.

I appreciate the advice.


You may not know me that well, but it's appreciated, nonetheless.

Fair warning intended only. Folk do as they will these days and I respect that in the way I would respect any other dangerous thing in the common folk. In your case, and a great many others here, I'm most interested to see the results. I don't drink much myself, but after seeing several folks I once had respect for there on FB playing their Trumps all loud while the shit goes down all over the country I'm thinking it's time to take the muse rather SERIOUSLY for a while. Whatever I happen to have left really.

Did you know that I can SING LIKE HELL and have nothing but a few drops of divine rage left keeping me going?True fact. I could just spit nails.  :evilmad:

FB sent me this one this morning. Again exactly 5 years ago to the day.

like all things it's done
in every way complete
a ruin with purpose made
stones fit for re-building
I will shed my world
I will start again
I will become the maker
I will make the stones fit right
