I want to be me.
I don't want to be a jangling, hollow bundle of raw, repressed, nerves and denied self-expression.
Thou Shalt Not Hide Thy Light Under a Bushel.
I don't want to be the-me-that-I-could-be-in-only-7-simple-steps-if-only-i-subscribed-to-that-shit-and-bought-the-up-and-coming-ebook.
I don't want to be fitter, happier and more productive like Radiohead's Pig.
I try so hard to be happy all the time, and fail abysmally.
Well, maybe I'm not meant to be happy all the time - after all if ignorance is bliss then happiness is downright irresponsible!
Will I teach my daughter to be an unrippled, shallow (albeit invitingly pretty) mill pond, or do I incite her to foam, rail and crash against the constricting shores of 'the human condition' whatever that may mean...
So ring out the old plans and schedules for serene and simple existence, and ring in the new fly-by-the-pants, heart-driven life of freedom.&
Abandoned ChapelThe parish waits now,
the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls--
chipped away by the wind,
and held together
by silk spindles;
cobwebs align them like the membranes of memories,
the cut of a jewel in an broken window
against the sun
where beads of rain
gather in a mesh of strands
a new Mosaic
against the backdrop of a cemetery;
My eyes seek out the sermon
in close proximity,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as light trickles
over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
