Tossing and Tortured 'Till Dawn

I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.

Now you are here,
but where have I gone?

Or have you left,
and I the one who remains?

Your presence dodges daily at the fringes
But we never quite meet.

How long will we take our inspirations from passing comets?

Where will we walk?

These nights are long and misdirected, and I'd be shocked if yours were anything but.

Ellipses and circles and helixes and lines.

The night is clear, resolute, pure.
Sleep, a distant fantasy; reality melts without the day.
Heartbeats-cum-helicopter blades thrumming strong and sure,
Drowning all other thoughts with: "Carry me away."


Travel back - think of that week. Seven days held more happiness than you felt in the whole year that preceeded it put together. Would you trade the year for the week? Would you trade the next tears for ten more such weeks? Of course you would.

Times like this I get prone to spitting out quotes.

"Young fool. Only now, at the end, do you understand."

"I'm looking in on the good life I might be doomed never to find
Without a trust or flaming fields am i too dumb to refine?"

Back in the thick of it.

Or at least, I have a new power adapter for my powerbook. It was good to disconnect for a little while, but I'd about had it with those garbage keyboards in the library. Stay tuned.

Dodgeball.As if we didn't think that our cell phones (flip phones especially) were "Kirk to Enterprise" type deals BEFORE. Have you joined yet? I did just a minute ago.

This has the dangerous effect of revealing my secret identity to anyone who reads this, but, since I'm hardly worth stalking, what the hell.

My computer's power adapter is kaput, hence a lack of posts lately, especially longer ones. This week I'll get another.

Yakuza girl -- this one's for you.

Julius Caesar: Reformer, champion of the people, murdered for challenging plutocratic rule in ancient Rome. Who knew?

Great book; highly recommended, even if you're not a history geek. It's a fast, functional read, and serves the function of myth-buster, an occupation I hold in high esteem.
