the riddle of the secular mystic

upturned rocks
downturned sheets
a bird in the hand
some beetles are meat
grit in the sand, dune chunks
that’s why here’s not feather smooth
the dreamscape has it’s own way
step as you will
every indent is transferable
every surface hewn
the chafer considers every grain
flexes every thread and fiber
and that is the journey made plain

more than annoyed

this feeling is a gnat
a tiny buzzard
the inky speck
flapping in the molasses

gnat time is that
compressed fluttering
i hear in my heart

there is no escape from metaphor
common experience is not plain
stars collide, satyrs collude
stir all the cliches in the black pot
and pour them magma hot into the black kettle

nettled by a gnat
salved by it’s decomposition

I found this feather on the farm today; its bottom stuck among the pebbles and its top barely glued to a spider web. The wind blew harshly against it, throwing it about.

Did this feather fight the wind? Did it try to force its own way? No, not today. Because the forces about it were strong, it bent with the wind instead. The feather went with the energy surrounding its being and allowed it to push it this way and that, each time readjusting itself.

Learning to flow with the energies of the universe is a difficult one. We all have our free will that wants what it wants. But it we are not in tune to what else is going on around us, if we do not listen, we could end up clashing against the forces and eventually breaking. Be more like this feather and learn to bend when…

Expectations

Changeday +1

Yes, the last three months did go as expected. I expected a series of days wherein the sun rises and I get out of a bed more or less the same person. In the fourth month, however, I accept the possibility that I could wake up in another body or in another dimensional plane. I mean, that’s how I got here in the first place, right?

Mood Enhancer

It's very important to have an assortment of tricks when I'm in a bad mood, such as whiskey, vodka, beer, wine. Just kidding! Hanging out with the bf is alwas good, especially if a long walk is involved. Writing for an hour. Ice cream. Talking on the phone with a good friend. Back massage at the mall from this one guy in particular really knows how to open up my shoulders.

Superman Friday

It’s going to be a real slog today. Lex is in the hospital with a bad case of punch-in-the-face and my supersonic hearing isn’t picking up so much as a mewing kitten. Good lord, it’s 8am, I can’t just sleep all day. Doesn’t matter that it’s Memorial Day weekend. Better shower now, or the day will be lost to the villainy of laziness.

Superman trudged down the hall with a super-sized towel and the mint plant that his boyfriend had given him. Continue reading
