some weird infection got me the other night

freezing and boiling and recoiling in horror

i lie in bed and follow rivulets of reverie

in deep dark places i come across the strangest things

i exchange information

the banging in my head continues

i hobble around

my much vaunted vim dimly remembered


previous entries

my other life as a song
rain in the courtyard
under cold clear water the sea has arranged zebra stripes
thief in a land where everything is free
room by the sea
abandoned poem
mani fresco
translucence in epsilon minus
eleven forty nine

any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction. — e. f. schumacher
