I got hit by a car yesterday while on my bike; fuckhead on a cell phone.
I am fine though.

It happened about 20 seconds after I was talking to my friend about not wearing helmets.
ha.

Monday, December 15, 2003

We've pushed for that embrace. It is here and it is transient, but right now it feels good and it feels like it means something. What is the something? I am not here to define something nor do i want to really. There is still hesitation and that will probably end when it all ends. How much do we protect ourselves from others and how much do we protect them from ourselves? I don't know. Why do I always want nail my heart down, because I know that when it ends it will hurt to pull that nail out and let it be free again. And with freedom I want confinement, so is that cycle really freedom then, because it appears that I choose that course of action. So it goes

nice.
nice, you are.
thank you for being you.
real skill.
running, stopping, but still moving.

trying, but i am looking forward to failure.
all over it.

Monday, December 08, 2003

my current basket:

1.) Everything is finite.
2.) Everything is ephemeral.

I am running with it, right now. Live in the now, I am so often in the future. Trying, I am, to be here: right now.

i am two spheres.
i am two spheres.

will your green growth consume me?

stars bleed your name.
but the light evaporates like it never came.
you are a stranger to me.
i won't tell you my thoughts / they are always in your shade.

i lay in the soil, soiled.

i wait.
until its my time to bloom,
and present my new awkwardness to you.

Wednesday, December 03, 2003

you know what your problem is, you don't remember.

winter is coming and i enjoy hiding in the extra garb. things are pretty static and thats ok.

Sunday, November 30, 2003

just spent a week at home.
it was nice.
thanksgiving stuff.

i think.

Thursday, November 20, 2003

the game engages.
i don't want to win,
because i don't want the end.

its fun until the harvest.
"tag".
timing is everything,
i release my grin.

Monday, November 17, 2003

i know but i dont.
but is this too my advatange of theirs?

Saturday, November 15, 2003

so hetero.
i get stuck. i need to be me, but i want something else to cling onto. or just something that makes me feel like i am doing something even though i'm not: social security. but, whatever. i mean people typically equate to learning and i say that i am into that. but effort. i mean effort. effort is hard to gauge when i am looking for an ending that i cant describe. maybe its that i just cant wait. i don't know.

Monday, November 10, 2003

hmm. school. life. learning.
Sometimes I wish I was a better student, because eventually that would lead me to that height of intelligence that I currently want. Sometime I just float too much. With finite time I want infinite knowledge.

Thursday, November 06, 2003

today was a yin-yang.

Wednesday, November 05, 2003

I stand erect.
Will you make me bend?
I don't know.

Going to go forward,
Let's hope you have an excuse.

Fade to green, your compliment.
Either way is full of lament.
Spring loaded step.
Thoughts hide why I wept.

Illuminate the rust.
Its only me I can trust.

inhale.
lie awake.
think.
exhale.

Tuesday, November 04, 2003

let's not begin.
hide your grin.

If we're risk averse,
our lives can't help but be terse.

I venture past the reference.
I am still waiting for you to finish the sentence.

There is going to be an asking,
funny how we need to mask it.

forefinger and foreclosure,
why wait until you're sure?

I just want to be forthright.

the weather again is 'nice'
and this brings with it hope.
unlike the vacuum sometimes associated with the cold.
but its all relative.
today, right now, is hope
or maybe just naive admiration.

"Understanding has been replaced by the mechanics of memory."

Monday, November 03, 2003

what am i so afraid of?
what is there really to fear,
nothing is unsurmountable.

the weather is fantastic and I got a great letter from todd today.

yay!

Sunday, November 02, 2003

thought i knew.
i did in the daylight.
felt bad for having feelings.
she has already acted.

honesty even after a lie feels good.
everybody lies all the time.
where do i draw the line.

a line in sand,
if you reach over i am afraid i won't take your hand.
i want that link,
but its weathered and weak.
if i try to balance,
i'll be the mute and you the speech.

Saturday, November 01, 2003

my mind makes circles.

its a closed track.
then it shifts, not going back.

Tuesday, October 21, 2003

i am thinking of you less.

yesterday i totally fell on my face off my bike.

same as it ever was.
statements unkept.
i fall harder.

my hit rap song
i have come to an undefinite conclusion
there are no real solutions

these horizontal lines are great divides
they dont allow us to collide

time to think for only me (and the earth and its creatures, kinda) and to be myself, by myself.

I saw peter singer tonight, nothing new, but interesting. also of note was who elected to sit next to me.

first a digression from the break:
this grad school shit is scary. i mean i remember how scared I was when I came to U of I. Relocating again to be with all strangers, thats heavy. Change. I am looking at states like ohio and indiana, I mean c'mon. It makes me secondguess my guesses of the future.

My sister's away message:
you said when I was ready..
you'd be waiting...
for sure this time.

I am going to try to do some HW, good luck mike.
thanks mike.

this morning is better so far.
still woke early.

r.w.emerson

Our first journeys show us how little difference places make. At home I dream that at Naples, at Rome, I can be intoxicated with beauty and lose my sadness. I pack my bags, hug my friends, get on the plane, and wake up in Naples, and there next to me is the cruel fact, the sad self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from. I look for the Vatican and the palaces. I pretend to be intoxicated with sights and suggestions, but I am not intoxicated. My giant goes with me wherever I go.

"that the outside can't penetrate to your insides, that your soul is a free as you can think of, and that the actions we do don't mean much, especially when they are for other people. So I don't know what I am trying to say, maybe I am saying is that you come first, and thats it."

"just try to listen to where your heart is beating. and once you figure that out, try to stop listening to it, and keep up with it, don't let it yearn for elsewhere"

school, more school. I am thinking about being a graduate. hmmm.
I had an inside out oreo today, not as good as the original.

even though I am not personally dwelling on the matter: money sucks. its like a god in the power that it can hold above us and its not even animate.

Thursday, September 18, 2003

overwhelmed. seems like I am overwhelmed alot. but why. if i dissect just about any situation i can see there is no reason for this.

we flee from the scene.
uncover truths that are green.
onward we forge throught the fog.
there is no reason.

i saw a truck on its side, charred cab and lumber over the road and it made me think.

Aeroplanes aim at angles anticipating akwardness amongst avians.
Best bets bestow brainwaves brackish beds before becoming brown.
casper caught creatures crying clever constructs claiming captivity can create.
dreadful demons deem daring dances delightful.
everything eats envy enveloped edibles each eon except eloping elephants.
five frenzied fire fighters fought flames from far-away, featuring favored flags found fantastically frightfull.
green goblins gobble grapes given great girth.

messed up.
the future is a hole.
back to the past,
my present is unable to give.

proverb.

i cant whistle and i cant blow a bubble. I am ok with this I am just saying thats all. I ate indian food with my hands the other day (curries) and well it was nice. next time you eat, take that fork and hold the food above the plate but dont put it in your mouth. see how long you can last, do you have control over your food or does have control over you?

until then

applesauce.
things lost.
energy concentrated into black.
take it back.
listless and heavy.
running on *e.
lost and searching.
pain, the past both lurking.
i hope.
we hope.
words don't work when our minds are broke.
show me how it hurts.
i will absorb and reflect.
this trainwreck.
curse. curse.
making amends.
translucent gray,
pretend, believe it'll be ok.
I always want the end to be the same.
pray or don't.
dream i don't.

free as a flippin bee
frolic, frolic
new this, new that
its amazing,
leaving what i took for granted.
one day this will be old too,
and it will taken too.
but now I am free,
my roots shrivel alone.
will have the same demise.
it wont matter because i am as free as a bee.

fallen asleep.

hung your voice with the telephone wire,
11 key punches feed my desires.
Hello,
goodbye.
Controling you from afar.
Hello,
goodbye.
swallowing your voice,
you are left behind,
if you were given the choice would you change your mind?
Hello,
goodbye.
I pen the page,
create your face,
make your age,
state the place.
does it make you tired?
like it makes me?
do you even notice what it is I do for you?
you cannot escape when you sense no danger.
Hello,
i can see.
i can see.
goodbye.

Its that time again, when thoughts are drifting towards that of the "growed-up" world. I was thinking today that I don't ever want to work an honest days work, in the conventional sense. so be it. Maybe i will be able to do this. Time will tell. I am a lover and I am loved. Fear is so weird, I don't want to be afraid, but sometimes I am. I feel like I should'nt be afraid ever that's not the way it goes. I want to be educated, what am I waiting for?

Monday, July 28, 2003

i use tools.

fun, music, life, laugh, discordance, dance, sleep, wake.

had a good weekend, with friends. friends are great. sure sometimes i want to be naked and free. but other times I don't mind electricity and what it affords me. i use the tools. tools don't make things sour, people do.
using what I got.

poetry is dead,
and so is the poet.

I don't want somebody to love me.
Give me charcoal,
and a face.

Lips perched,
I flee ( I always do).

release me.
release me.
iron and gray,
release me.

an invitation for me,
thank you.

thinking,
plotting,
plans go awry.
i try.

fastened to the breeze,
brains are tools.
advancements.

progressive income tax.

sillouettes and silk,
blushing.

turning away from the sun,
light reminds me.
as does the dark.
we miss.
I missed.

dirty face welcomes me.
sweat reminds me.
like a sponge I consume.

summer's song seems fleeting (somtimes.)
I have been enjoying myself lately.
Music really kicks my ass, I am trying to explore some older music, but to no avail as of yet.

Moving units' song "I am" is kicking my ass.

its ok with me.
the weekend was good.
waking up. waking down.
water wets and surrounds us in sound.
waving good day.
erasing a frown.
painting what we say.
breathe with the trees.

sometimes i just got hung up when i dont get everythhing out. i dwell. i dont expect the same in return, i really dont. sometimes i just forget what i expect or dont. so then i dwell. its going.

today at work I slept in a van and read a chapter in a textbook. and i got paid.

Tuesday, June 17, 2003

i got you a present. i'll wait until then to give it to you.

i check my email like a burn victim pressing the button for more morphine, only I find no solace as the machine and wires check for "electronic-faceless thinking of yous." I suppose just like a person with charred flesh and singed hair, my need to press the button will too recede.

Monday, June 16, 2003

why bother? its gonna hurt me.

a note on culture. we all want to experience alot of things and may even have expectations about these. we can't experience everything first hand. we use culture to assimilate the most we can about that in which we do not experience personally. we all want something always, we can't have it all. how do we decide, then, what to do, which things to experience. and what to abandon?

its hard tending to the garden, when you know the hail storm will destroy it.

i am really good at being moody. But i cant help myself. i havent read a book for a while. I have a receding hairline, comb-overs loom. We are watching Roger and Me in class, why are we so crazy? I want to go to far away places. Its lame in checkers that you must jump when possible.

had a party this weeked.

In the year 2000...
Is there anything that we can do when we grow up that is work, but isn't? I don't want to work some lame job to buy laundry detergent and toliet paper. Then I think is there is a "job" that will not be lame. Are all jobs lame by their mere nature. And right now I don't know. I want to say I am scared but that is just a cop out, i am not scared of what is coming but rather what might not come or what might be taken. something like that.

sometimes cuss words are so much fun.
other times no, they never add to character but shit.

Summer is approaching and I am excited/scared. full time job, hopefully six hours of class.
i only think of being tired.
but maybe I am just being dumb thinking that.
grown-up is very scary.
huh.

eat the fucking mango,

nothing more to add.
i fall down.
rhymes in my mind,
leave it the shit alone.
why do i feel so dumb.
idiot.

falling swiftly thorugh the grains,
my weight the same as my shadow.
i have become the same as i was.
reflections keep me bound,
ready to pounce.
far from here the sun rises again.
milk from a mother makes martyrs whole.
tone like a vapor escapes through my grasp.

red wraps around a face,
perhaps I was too afraid to believe,

shoelaces flail in the wind,

RAMBO III
Today I used John Rambo and a scene from Rambo III to make a point about the evolving thesis. Once you have the text, you need to chisle away the excess to make your thesis the right one, it takes some sculpting but it is always there. Just like Rambo is a soldier, even if it wasn't for the army and the colonel.
On top of all of that I just wanted to use RAMBO III as an example in this freshman rhetoric course. no one questioned it. ha.

the world ends.

thats it for now.

C.S. Lewis made an observation applicable to do-gooders everywhere: "Of
all tyrannies, tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be
the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral
busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so
with the approval of their own conscience."

no puedo entender los sentimientos,
un dia, otro dia el mismo pero todavia differente.
tal vez, no podemos entender.
pero de vez en cuando, quiseria averiguarlos.

i feel like a dumbass tonight. i say dumb things, do dumb things. and this all relates to circumstance, so perhaps any other night i wouldn't feel 'dumb' but tonight I do.

revitalize my ambitions,
take off my socks before i sleep.
in the morning i choose different socks.

Wednesday, January 22, 2003

the start of the semester always makes me feel overwhelmed, but that usually always dissipates and that is a good thing.
grandma died last week and their are still things to attend to, and uncle t is getting 'better'.
i am tired, but thats okay. not much is new here at the college, its look as if it is going to be challenging.
good.
