ruthless nature
push push push
inside where i cant stand it
stoop so low
cavernous sonic halls
fluid and liquid
transmitting impulses
a cluster of events close enough
the grid lights up
machinery moves into place
receptors alert for incoming materials
re-hardwired
soft where
hard wear
software softly singing
hardware hardly hearing
i am the result
my hands fly about me
i am fortunas agent
resilient
changing all the time being
my voice carries now overfield and plane
my voice bearing the words you must hear
it comes from my throat
it enters a current
it fills up the space in your head
im knocking some sense into you
im sliding down downy hills
i dont hesitate to use my mojo on you
you call that ooomph?!
no
ooomph is what i say it is
ooomph is on and on and on
yeah
what ya heard about me is wright
a work in progress
before your living eyes
i am not me
not who i was
who i will be
i cut all ties
i scorn your reprimands
i am above and below your vision
reproach yourself for what you find lacking in me
i am innocent
i am free
i am just warming up
i am not entangled in anybodys miasma of superstition
i paint
i write
i play
i love my own dear ones
a man at last
thats
something
not everything

    yes you are a real man
    you cant take criticism
    or advice
    no matter how thoughtful or well meaning
    you blog on about your ear for a week then sneer at those who bothered to offer you sympathy because they dare disagree with you
    you may be ever changing but you are still a dickhead

    to 10:45, wash your eyes and scrup your teeth before you come here. ok?
    sk’s just trying to say something to somebody who may concern, not for those who care about him and sent their sympathy. if you’ve read his formly blogge you certainly should have known it-if you are not blind – but it seems you are, di*****d!

    i really don’t know what to say
    in reply
    guess it’s pointless to say anything
    best of luck to ya, killa
    you prove more than most that
    we as humans are all
    individually
    unique
    and one-of-a-kind
    .
    .
    .
    still
    the error in this case
    is yours
    and not mine
    just a man taking care of his family
    indeed
    aren’t we all

    There is no “I”

    Just the light that fills it.

    (“fills what? fills what…?”)

    At least that’s what I recall from my schoolboy metaphysics. I could have got it all wrong.

    More potted wisdom: Nothing tastes quite so bitter as the rope we try to tie each other down with.

    Right kids?

    Now excuse me. I have to go and polish my metaphors.

    no
    ooomph is what i say it is

    Gotta admit I actually did LOL at this.

    a work in progress

    With any luck we all are this. What’s the point if you aren’t continuing to grow and develop? And you seem to me to be going in a good direction.
