I don't give updates
about writing; either I am
writing or thinking

or trying not to
think of writing; to say so
would be tiresome.

But today I wrote
through to THE END (of a scene)
and of the things left

unsaid, those we need
will keep until day two of
stuck elevator.

Lookit what I found at work today...

V.

The beings of the mind are not of clay;
Essentially immortal, they create
And multiply in us a brighter ray
And more beloved existence: that which Fate
Prohibits to dull life, in this our state
Of mortal bondage, by these spirits supplied,
First exiles, then replaces what we hate;
Watering the heart whose early flowers have died,
And with a fresher growth replenishing the void.

Could I find a more evocative description of fantasy, transformation and fandom if I tried?

Apparently this is "Childe Harold". From the size of the page, it's like three hundred pages long. What was I doing with myself in college that I never read any of this?

The very next couple lines speak to me too, otaku that I am:

I’ve taught me other tongues, and in strange eyes
Have made me not a stranger;[...]

Further on:

And slight withal may be the things which bring
Back on the heart the weight which it would fling
Aside for ever: it may be a sound -
A tone of music - summer’s eve - or spring -
A flower - the wind - the ocean - which shall wound,
Striking the electric chain wherewith we are darkly bound.

The electric chain wherewith we are darkly bound. Oh my god.

Haiku Advice

To sing without a mic
First bend, then kiss your guitar
On the sweetest spot.

For NaNoWriMo 2009

This is just to say
I have stolen the tropes
that were strewn on the counter
and which you were probably saving
for the 25th

Forgive me
they were delicious
so new, and so old







Note 1: Only recommended with acoustic-electric guitars. For fully electric guitars, kiss a piece of styrofoam, lay it on the strings, and hum.
