Closing time

And so the deed is done
settled,
signed,
certified
and if
the devil is six, no god
is gonna let it come to seven.

So I lay my Armani down,
pour myself a twelve year
old Ballantine's
pure malt, a single stone
and ponder:

how's it come to this?
(this being the end of something)

no, not "how's it come to this"
inasmuch as
"what to do with it now?"

that monolith, closed building.

The higher you climb, the
more to see. And none
of this makes sense.

And it really comes to this,
doesn't it?___: what to make of
it all. What's the purpose
we served?

The letting go

soon now the phone will ring for you
someone will say that you are dead
and dead you will be but not death
nor the voice on the other side will
have killed you

only I will do that. I will let you die
no sooner than I'll have to, no sooner
than I'll need to, no sooner than I'll want to.

You may die before of after death comes
for you
but not when she wants it
no sir, not so, not like that. Not death
dealing all the cards. She will not tell me
when you die. Only some voice on the other side
will say so but not true.

For you will die before or after that moment
death comes but not before I let you go.

Pop song '08

We're aiming for the sky! No?
We're just so high! So fast, so numb!
Like the lyrics in the song

We're rocket high, going fast
going places we wanna be
others we didn't even know

We're aiming nowhere
We just kinda got there

And we're so high, going fast
Going steady, even standing
We're always moving, always changing

Just us, just remaining.

Death comes to us all

Death comes to you
But mainly not for you

Would that be not the case
And it would be easier:
one can always dance with death
when it comes for us

But when it slights you only
Striking those around you
Those whom you did not yet
learn to lose
Such rage can only be seasoned with tears
And truly, such lesson hardly learnt.

But you know you're only fooling
your depths of darkness and anguish

One day It will come for you
And not only to you.

Pray rage has then given place
To something else

For it would be shameful
To leave life in (such) anger.

A home

You go about the new house
looking, touching, watching for
the things that make a home

The creek of the wood
beneath your feet
The command of your voice
through the walls
would be places to put
the perfect piece of furniture

The rug settles the living room
The bottles on the shelves
amidst the books are original
There are flowers descending
from the lamp in the library

Already clothes mark certain spots
A scarf or loosen tie
A pair of shoes under a table
Hides from visiting friends

When you look out the window
It is now your place you see
Your life on the outside
As yours inside becomes.

The peacock tree

The peacock tree is a tree I ran into one day in Lisbon. Its branches were full of peacocks, four to be exactly, which I gather is a lot for any tree. They were just standing there, reminding me of an old portuguese tv show, A Árvore dos Patafúrdios. I took the pictures, almost continuously, with all the effects my mobile phone camera can provide. And thus, The Peacock Tree.

the little circle

we went to the north shore and we drew our little circle, we said, this will be our little circle. We know that the world is big and perilous, we know that all is uncertain and terrible, but inside this circle we know ourselves, we know each other. Nothing will harm us. Forgive us for this weakness but we are fragile beings, though we fight to show otherwise. Inside this circle we are more than friends and family, we are we, to become such we fought in each others arms and trusted no one else. We are we, I say this and we all agree. Inside this little circle. At the north shore.

Thus ends Wincing The Night Away

A Comet Appears



One hand on this wily comet,
Take a drink just to give me some weight,
Some uber-man I'd make,
I'm barely a vapor

They shone a chlorine light on,
A host of individual sins,
Let's carve my aging face off,
Fetch us a knife,
Start with my eyes,
Down so the lines,
Form a grimacing smile,

Close your eyes to corral a virtue,
Is this fooling anyone else?
Never worked so long and hard,
To cement a failure,

We can blow on our thumbs and posture,
But the lonely is such delicate things,
The wind from a wasp could blow them,
Into the sea,
With stones on their feet,
Lost to the light and the loving we need,

Still to come,
The worst part and you know it,
There is a numbness,
In your heart and it's growing,


With burnt sage and a forest of bygones,
I click my heels,
Get the devils in line,
A list of things I could lay the blame on,
Might give me a way out,

But with each turn,
It's this front and center,
Like a dart stuck square in your eye,
Every post you can hitch your faith on,
Is a pie in the sky,
Chock full of lies,
A tool we devise,
To make sinking stones fly,

And still to come,
The worst part and you know it,
There is a numbness,
In your heart and it's growing.

The Shins

Mind the paradox

between the lines.

And if I never,
live to see another day
I guess that would have to be alright by me see
How come we never say what it is that we wannna say
Is this just another way to be mean ?
Mean?
Mean?
Not Steve McQueen
Or "Free of Worry "

And if you never
have the need to look the other way
But how could this be good for me?
Lets hope we always prevail to love, to take a pill or take a pause
But this is not at all what it seems
Seems
Seems
Seems
(Or take me serious)

Make sure we never
Ever stand in each others way
When you got something that you got to say that’s real
Look to each other that’s a thing that we're gonna do from now on
That’s what we're gonna do
for you
