Stay, she said, and I'll be all for you, not realizing I was and was not, and much more.

I am vessel
that empties and fills
Overflowing it spills,
drying up
before once more
to the brim
one tear-drop at a time
it feels
one tear at a time
it heals

I always wanted the other to take the first swing. I later found out this is a bad strategy, and that the one who strikes first usually wins a fight.
But it didn't have that effect on me.
With me being struck invigorated me with rage, and if blood was drawn I became a monster I could only later recognize.
It didn't happen often, but the few times that it did made me afraid of this loss of control.
I never knew what I would do, or how far I would go. I would be watching myself act, as if I were a bystander.
But I kept it a secret that it felt good.
It felt real.....like it was my entire self.

If it comes to pass that my kind be lost in time, and we are gone forever, let what follows bear witness to our absence, and the silence echo our missing songs.
We once blazed hot, and the cold that comes will recall what is no more.

Ha!!!
I ate it.

I'm a goat in mind, and physically human.
It's an esoteric/exoteric division.

It was troublesome to be excluded from the groups I wanted to belong to.
Then it became troublesome to belong to groups I refused.

Indifference got me in, and keeps them pulling me back, when I try to leave.
To be a stranger in their midst has forced my ambitions to change.
From judging myself in relation to them, I now judge them in relation to me.
I can only share my analysis - sometimes trying to impress, sometimes trying to provoke, always trying to get a reaction I can use to gauge their hidden truths.
When intimacy has ceased being about me unloading upon another, it becomes absorbing what they unload.

I am of another alphabet.
Outside, on the periphery, sometimes mistaken for the alpha, most of the time mistaken for the omega.

Tarzan's awakening...
I found myself naked among apes and was surprised because I felt no shame.
They poked and prodded at my strangeness, some becoming bolder with their searching fingers and testing teeth.
I covered my most private parts with a loincloth, not out of shame but guided by experienced caution.

I gave myself permission to look, but was not given permission to speak of what I saw.
The pressure came forth in whimpering cries of dismay, becoming growls of madness.
Vermin scattered and hid in the shadows, but one rose from the east, and settled upon the west; crouching upon the myriads.

A bee, once named mellisa, settled on my chest - honey-fed and pollen laden.
I closed my eyes and expanded my hearing, listening to her rhythmic song, lamenting a dying world.
Who shall make the nectar to quench Olympian thirsts?
Masks and excuses, pretenses and lies, shall rule the world.

I will survive, warped and crippled, but I will not forget.
My mind will be beeswax; hexagonal honeycombs gradually filled with the sweetness of my labours.

Live Lightly...

Rule #1 Every spring get rid of all the stuff you haven't used since the preceding spring.
You have three months to find and discard, or to use so as to keep it - spring cleaning.
Throw it away, or give it away. Sell it, if you prefer.
In a few years you will only possess things you use regularly, or you will force yourself to find a use for the things you have.

I once gave away 100+ CDs, after collecting them over many years.
I realized I was not listening to most, and the ones I was listening to I only liked a few tracks.
So, I burned the tunes I liked on half a dozen CD's, at the time....this was ten years ago, and I gave away the originals to a friend...and the rotating CD rack I had purchased to hold them all.

The sun hit my face, on a cool summer's day, after a long downpour, having heard of death, and I was glad to be alive.
Then my eyes tired and I wore my sunglasses.

Even life can be too long.

I returned home and found it violated.
Someone had broken in and taken some of my things with him.

My heart fell, and then rose, discovering that what I valued was still there, and what I did not was gone.
Then my heart fell again.

Before I die, I hope to be the man my father could not be, and the father he failed to be.
Before I die, I will say what needs to be said, and refuse to pretend not to hear, or see.
Before I die, I will put my shoulder to the rock, and push it that tiny length of space/time up the hill.
Before I die, I will feel, and wonder, and seek, despite my fear.
Before I die, I will honour and praise what is worthy, and nothing more.

Before I die, I will not lie.

Gorgo of Sparta:
Being asked by a woman from Attica,
"Why is it that you Spartan women are the only women that lord it over your men,"
she said,
"Because we are the only women that are mothers of men."

In Sparta only two types were buried with a tombstone bearing their name: warriors who died in battle, and mothers who died giving birth.
Means to an end. She who shapes human destiny.
Genetic and memetic filters.
Women bring forth the men they then complain about.
Where are the mothers of men, today?
They are seeking the men they failed to produce.
They serve a foreign god, an idea. They serve pleasure and victimhood.
They are torn and divided...lost to themselves.
They are always 'trying to find who they are', when mind has been separated from body.
Genes whisper, and minds speak - the ideal or the real?.
Who will they heed?
