Little Bird Rabbit Hole

Bottomless pit
My ability to unbalance
Twitter good for engagement, yet –
Alarming drop-tops circle-swarm the block
Aloof crustaceans bloom without second glance
Alacrity chases & twizzles
Too many things are broken without cause

Check marks are unstable
Nothing remains completed – yet.
[hm. the other apartment’s cat was bound to come in eventually, since I leave the window open for mine. We will have a cat fight on our hands later…]
But some now slated once done, will stay done. _ .

New Message of the Day at Psychic Fugue Studio. The target is now ~2 a week, not every day. Also, in case you missed it, I’ve been selected a March poet for Tupelo Press’ 30/30 Project. My fundraising page is now live at Network for Good. Help me reach my goal! Also, book subscriptions for any year 2009-2017 count towards the fundraising goal. Looks like you may have to order those and mark it to my credit over at the main page though. Finally, there are still a couple open slots for poets for the project, should you wish to apply. Just send 3 sample poems and a short bio to the email address on the 30/30 main page. It only took me about 16 hours from the first email to being on board..

Finally made an about page for my index site Psychic Fugue Studio. Gave it a v0.01 which eased the pressure to make it super-definitive. ::: …”and chipping away at prep work for a sort of divination/creativity/game tool product idea”…

As mentioned before, I started a Message of the Day feature there, too. It is being archived, as well. The ‘newest-ish’ links at PFS have aged some… I’ll have to do some new regular posts. But getting this shipment of postcards out is first. :::

Lies like fleas multiply

Face-meltingly good short stories reviewed: Amber Sparks‘: May We Shed These Human Bodies :::: “But many of these stories touch down in the real.  Some of the most poignant and well-developed stories are those like “You Will Be The Living Equation” which takes us through a teenage girl’s stages of grief. ”

Maria Popova – 10 core lessons from 10 years of Brain Pickings:
“Presence is far more intricate and rewarding an art than productivity.”…”for, as Annie Dillard memorably put it, “how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.””
“Most important, sleep. Besides being the greatest creative aphrodisiac, sleep also affects our every waking moment, dictates our social rhythm, and even mediates our negative moods. Be as religious and disciplined about your sleep as you are about your work.”

“Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others… re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul…” ::: Walt Whitman’s Advice on Living a Vibrant and Rewarding Life ::: Brain Pickings

How Dream Jobs Fail Expectations, or “Don’t Follow Your Passion”.. haven’t finished yet. Such as how running a design agency takes you away from most designing, forcing you to spend all kinds of time on management & business-y things instead.

some possible things to spread, my 4/4

scattered pieces
train unwrapped
exploded diagram
signal moving parts
around chiral centers
narrative #eclipses the whole

inbuilt self
unbuilt unwatched untaught
set on path by a lone pebble
unweathered by fear
#calculus has nothing on this topology



awake since 1:30
a tremor in the night
a long way to fall
we shall see what shakes out
#micropoetry #mornings

a sleep that lasts for days
my longest at 15 hours
all because of something…
symbolism of dreams
a chaos piece
longing for change

Visions become nothing
Speed requires sleep
Swarms of giant spiders
Crawling up your leg
A terror of visions –
Don’t freak out when they come for you
Giants of the days of the week
Water gets everywhere
A little piece left for you –
Nothing is required to change –
– Yet longing for it
Asleep for days
Awake for minutes
Hearings on expulsion
Call a stone a stone
Become other than what you are

The Method of Proxy Sea

Some thought to non-diminishment
Some challenges for the Faeries
Tools for reworking the world
Rebuilding in a new image
Some thought to privacy

Unused Potential

From dream interpretation:
To see a blank check in your dream symbolizes your unused potential. It may also indicate unclaimed rewards.

How about several blank checkbooks in the mail from my bank? Ha Ha! I must be awesome!
Many people might be interested in Dream Telepathy: Scientific Studies in the Paranormal BTW check it out on Amazon or wherever you can find it. Their research protocols seemed solid to me when I read it several years ago.

Anyone, meet everyone
Someone, meet no one
That one, meet this one
Young one, meet old one

Morning 1-13-2015

Itching for a cigarette
Tweets so far, perhaps five,
Radio plays on NPR
Sports hour unfortunately
Or no, just part of the news
Cards progress good,
None yet today
Coffee with:
Rhodium roses, eleuthero ginseng, cocoa powder, no ground black seed
Mountain rose herbs
New book out, poems: Ziggomatic Keys (*&  Synaptic Syntactic and Really Fantastic  &*)
Have fun with that
Project to paper soon
Super adaptogen coffee
Rhodiola gives it a red color
Need to make new aniracetam pills
Sold two amazon gift cards
And three christmas books
And a need to call UPS recruiter
Life moves forward
I sit in this chair
