COOKIE CUTTER LOVE

  COOKIE CUTTER LOVE Out of the blue Aretha Franklin comes into my listening zone and asks, “Do you have anything to tell me, Love?” And this gets me into the mood. We are gathering around an idea, that a certain amount of time is...

bench press

BENCH PRESS For me this is a travel day, and not this time am I going off-planet, but all the things point in that direction now, I could. Billionaires do it more than once, I do it weekly. I go out to the airport and stare at the billboard that...

corn-bread sweet

CORN-BREAD SWEET I seem to have a lot of distractions going on. Dog in the garbage bin. Noise and I know now, don’t hesitate. Investigate. Find you, don’t guess, what are the people and the animals up to. And o I have moved into the dynamic...

West-Coast Dream State

WEST-COAST DREAM STATE Out and About. Does me well. Am doing the routine of being in another person's home, alone with pets and front yard debris that looks a lot like weeds to me. Rush of wind and sea breeze coming in the...

day break

day break DAY BREAK Today and in a middle of the road mood. Went out for a walk with the Big MUTT, my name for the on-the-leash guy that I am dog sitting for and with and upon. Haven’t really gotten my every move down yet, but am...

copycat junction

COPY-CAT JUNCTION In my mind, I have put this displacement, and now I want to make it something that comes natural to me. On the surface, we are all interchangeable and yet, I think not. Illusion and perception, and false belief, and I do not...

HOLDING SPACE

HOLDING SPACE I don’t need anything and I certainly don’t come here to persuade you that I do. Have ventured into another’s home, and am now a guest on my own blog. Something has taken over and I am now in the care and share of others. Having...

for onephiles

FOR OENOPHILES He lives. A lover. And a connoisseur. You know what he likes. He breaths and obsesses about you. You know. He actually cares. And today my blog is about that: The Oenophile OMA. He lives for you. Is what he is all about....

words: Rose 4 Mary

  A ROSE FOR MARY I look around and over the top of the fence and get a view of all things not me. Spring Ahead and for a few months the overwhelming chill of winter took over. I had nothing, and nothing was like an obsession for me....

getting over

GETTING OVER   I am so happy. Not sure how to explain it. Fading back to 1949, which is a long time ago. Thinking about all things old and with no fashion. Basic and Remote. Stuck in the rain and nobody around to talk to me. So I had to...

Chamber of Blanks

  CHAMBER OF BLANKS In comes to me in the ebb and tide of mood swings I have. Disguised as a rise in my voice, or comes as a whisper barely touched by the breath and depth of a huge sky hanging over me. Seldom do I cry, but when I do,...

bastard in the fire

Bastard In The Fire Something comes into my head and almost paralyzes me. Stops me cold. Makes me regret what is said. Or that it is said by one like me. And yet, I go on. Sign of a brave fool, if indeed I am aware that which is, and that...

intake system

INTAKE SYSTEM So this is a flashback into a different time, before digital everything. Back in the day, they told us straight out. “Hold Your Tongue.” And so became a Code of Silence. Like still waters, these things run deep, and were...

after a while

AFTER A WHILE After a day like today, when weird things happened, and people are trying to have fun at your expense, and so they do a form of trickery, and explain things in a new way, and in the end the day is over, and they say, “APRIL...

401-K

401-K So it took me a moment or so, to realize Google was just be out in front with all things progressive and modern and moving forward. WARP SPEED. And as a Kid I loved jokester day almost more than May Day, when the Moscowvites were...
