maybe being stubborn wasn't such a good idea after all. maybe i made a mistake.

i continue to feel like crap. i want otter pops...

i feel like pooh, today, and no, not the cuddly yellow bear.

wake up in the dark with the after-taste of anger in the back of my mouth
spit it on the wall and cough some more and scrape my skin with razor blades...
you hit me again, you howl and hit me again, the same sharp pain wakes me in teh dark
and cuts me from my throat to my pounding heart... shake dog shake.

today is full of butterflies and sunshine.

sometimes i'm just angry. any target will do and the thing is, i have a lot to be angry for - i don't need anyone telling me otherwise. just let me get it out of my system and try not to give me a target to focus on.
07 Jul 2013 13:27
so i know it's just a spring haze but i don't much like the look of it
and all we do is circle it and I found out where my edge is
and it bleeds into where you resist and my only way out is to go so far in
off on my way unseen this eternal wanting
let go so if i really get creamed
waiting for Sunday to drown
why does it always end up like this?

house and head.

art isn't what you think it is, it's what sneaks up on you and insinuates itself into your brain when you're not even thinking about it - art is subtle, it's clever, and it's deadly. don't let art be the last thing you see before you die - be vigilant and get art before it gets you. this has been a public service announcement. thank you.

i haven't been writing a lot for here lately. doesn't mean i'm not writing. just finding my inspiration else where, stories that either end up on the blue site or... this is Oscar Grant. i didn't know him, but i could have. he was 4 years younger than me. he was shot and killed 8 blocks from where i grew up. i don't know how big the story was nationally - it was at the Fruitvale BART station - but to us, it was huge. i just think it's important to remember him. was he a model citizen? no. he got busted for doing what a lot of us did growing up - surviving - only we didn't get caught. sometimes the world reeks of injustice. not sure why he's on my mind tonight, but he is. this is Oscar Grant. god bless.

occasionally i get these overpowering urges to go home, home being Oakland, which is strange, cause i don't have fond memories of the place - it's just that i feel like i belong there and there's an empty place that only it fills. yeah, i know, i'm mental.
