you're beautiful

Real sun, not scalding, by day. They cheer my name at night. I look much better than I feel or believe, I realize. I want you to watch me and be moved by my movement. Running water. Sushi in peace. We can spend as much time together as we wish and still find new ways to laugh. Stars and stories on the steps. Online warfare. Blue eyes. A shoutout to ANGELA for reading this! (Team America...spreading our influence to other parts of the U.S. before our next reunion.) Highways and stories of that first kiss. God didn't want me to die today. It's a warm night and I do not know what will come to be, but I do love this, now.

"Well, I always knew they were nuts."

Simple yet spontaneous adventures make me glad.

"Do you think they'll give me whipped cream in a cup?" In the thirty second gap between phone calls, Kelsey finds money. "If that's not a good enough reason to stay fit, I don't know what is!" Time and good laughs with a wonderful chiquito, and of course there is no fifth wheel! Afterwards, the presence of an old friend -- the UNGEHEUR...of Long Island Sound.

And the Spanish soap opera, no matter how many times I've watched it, never fails to make me laugh.

An old but wise quote: "You know you're a true gymnast when what you're doing is better than a rollercoaster."

(Looks like I'm putting my emo songwriting career on hold today.)

blind but now i see

Once limited, but now I can run.

I like myself best at this time: driving home in the afternoon after a run. Sun illuminates green and blue. Music plays on the radio -- random, yet exactly what I wish to hear. I am alone, and unperturbed. All is well.

As it should be.

Today's revelation: I MISS TRACK! (My 4x100 champs-high jump crew-4x800 know what's up.) Always memories I can reflect upon happily and safely, for that was what it was.

i love nearly drowning while driving

Apocalypse Now (or yesterday, or two days ago, whenever this publishes).

Sometimes I get tired of working hard. Sometimes the desire wans to force this image in my mind into a physical manifestation -- for at such times, it would take force. Sometimes I would like to eat chocolate and not mind at all.

Hey, if strap bar giants and dancing to Pirates of the Caribbean are what keep me going right now, I'll take it.


Tell me, is this all that you've dreamed?

Monday, June 05, 2006


Warm blueberry pie, strawberry ice cream, calmness on the Expressway, rolling down the dark road, humid and salty night air, gray but not ominous sky, feet bounding comfortably over roots, a drip of blood in exchange for a climb, reunions with close friends, curls, art in the newspaper, contemplation, ideas, a smile, and always ending the day with a wish for a good night.

wouldn't it be nice if we were older?
then we wouldn't have to wait so long

boy & girl

We're sore and disjointed and displaced. We try to stretch and bump into each other instead. Sleep. Sleep would be good indeed for the mortal mind and soul.

You tease me. I tell you to stop. I kiss your cheek. You lick my face.

And you know what, boy? I love you.

a new circle

Amazing things can happen.

Not all is impossible.
