slack tide

it's not morbidity

but i don't believe that i will live forever

even tomorrow is a dream, that perhaps i won't

perhaps i won't chose to wake from the dream that is today

today's evil is more than enough

i don't know if it is me that has changed, or you.

did we just grow apart?

if we had stayed together, if i had chosen to continue my blind love

would we still kneel at the feet of these foreign gods?

would we have turned towards something more brilliant?

something more pure and childlike?

outside things

this season i am trying container gardening

beets and tomatos

i do not really expect to eat anything from the containers,
but i like the way they look; green and verdant; alive

fever dream

in my dreams

i exchange the green shadow of trees for the blue satin of the ocean

the smell of tar and asphalt

for the tang of salt on the air

i dream of being better

of leaving anger and dispair by the wayside

my reality

crushes my dreams

one night at a time

no compass?

wending through the thicket

of words

images translated to the page

sometimes i fear i will lose my way

two minds

two selves even

janus and doorways, but not

i can't split myself down the middle and live, macro mitosis isn't my thing

the divergence gets bigger, further apart

neither side has the solution
