Lost and Found

While taking a break this morning at work this morning I found a small piece of jewelry. When I returned to my desk I sent the following email to the staff...

"Outside close to the sidewalk that runs parallel to the handicap parking spots I found a heart shaped pendant.

The faux gold outer coat is rubbing off to expose the cheap base metal the item is made of and the “diamond” in the center reminds me of the bitty shards of broken glass that are still on the floor of my kitchen. The entire item is a little smaller than a quarter and probably of much less value.

If you lost this item please come to my desk and retrieve it."

So far, no one has come forward...

Elliot redux

You're wrong TS,
It comes on big cat feet like
A leopard
Outta nowhere this sea fog,
now seeing 5 feet
At 30.
But I close my door
And it crawls on the outside
Against my window like
A predator
Which I ignore.

hands in the air

It's all spook country. Dancing awkwardly and by myself in a room full of enemies.  Best that your back is never turned. Best to always face the door.

Zapruder film, frame 318 - here for the first time shown undoctored - clearly shows the Mrs. Kennedy reacting to the first shot hitting Elf On A Shelf in Dallas that day.

Broken Fever

Eyelids open like
Sudden broken paper shutters
2:34 am
Pull the wet shirt off
Over my head
Heavy with sweat
And toss it in the chair,
Attempt vertical - a
Fold finding its feet-
And lurch towards a glass
Of water.

Left work early today. Sick. Chills.

Now at home sitting in bed afraid to close my eyes and sleep. Afraid that if I close them I will never open them again.

best song line ever after "I wanna hold your hand"...

"Wouldn't wish this indecision
On anybody else.."

"If I could just crash here tonight
Ya see I'm no shape for drivin
And I got no place to go...." - gin blossoms

things I have seen camping

Only had to shiver through a 16 degree morning climbing outta the tent to enjoy it didn't we?

"Hey, you the ones in the tent?"
"How was it?"
"It was... fucking miserable".

But we did it. A frozen memory...

For me

But you go ahead with your dream...

traffic casualties

So now I'm just eating
These breadsticks with those
Damn seeds you like
Dropping like
Dead love bugs I wipe off
My windshield
Wondering if the love bugs
Made a bad move
Or was it me?

It's an amazing thing, the difference...

Kick a dog and he'll forever remember you unkindly.

Kick a man and he has options. Remember forever or forgive.

I have often wondered where I fit in. I often wonder how well I perform as a man and not a dog.
"You're just part of everything that's happening tonight, and it's all bad." --Swan The Warriors

Guess the best I can do is leave you with this song....

Left you alone at my
After a fight
So snooping
You find my journal and
Help yourself to my
Private thoughts my
And a record of
The man I daily was taking
the only thing
that was mine.

So choke on it
in an out of context way...

finally wrote about you...

I open this beer
Sunday with the sun coming up
You're as
As a sarah mclachlan song
So I make short work
Of throwing your left things
In the trash.
