Hush

I've started perusing NC Blogs - it's cool to find people in my area, especially the ones that write. Met a guy named Ron a few days ago through his blog. A seriously inspiring guy, one who loves the bible thumpers as much as I do. Not at all.

I don't know what people did before the internet, living in closed little worlds where your horizons were so limited! I have met so many amazing people via the WWW that I'd have never known existed without it. Makes me sad to know how many friends I wouldn't have.

I wish I could travel. Hop a plane to some far away place, Ireland, Australia, friggin Zimbabwe, live and learn, and learn. There is so much out there people! And most of it, I'll never even know I don't know! How horrible is that!?

I still don't know what my chapbook looks like! I mean I do, but I haven't seen it yet. It's enough to drive me insane!

Here's today's very disjointed surreal, inaccessible, obscurely metaphored free write. Enjoy.

Hush

You writhe in my stomach,
the cramp of forgotten promise.
Unkept, you drain away, fade -
a diluted stain in my head.

You have become an unmentionable,
and yet your name still swirls in my ear.

  1. I'm glad perused your way over to my little corner of the world. I'm enjoying your writing here. You are a talent, for certain. It's so exciting about your book! Maybe you'll have a signing somewhere close by. :-)

    Thanks for your sweet comment, by the way.

  2. Hi Jennifer! Glad you stopped by! Signings are probably out of the question, nothing that important about my little chap, but maybe a poetry reading or two if I get brave!
