Are there more of you and me, pissed-up
in a few dimensions, wondering if this
thunder strums each sky the same as now?
Whatever, I am not about to lighten up.

Later you will kill for dinner and I’ll watch,
awed that life can boil so fiercely –
pray those crayfish reappear
in a world that you can’t stake or drown.

Let’s forget about the ring you found for me
while you teased another girl
in the cemetery – she’d have liked to die
but you had no urge for idle merriment.

We won’t talk about that I don’t like it
moment – words set in
obsidian against silver  – turning.



My thanks and apologies to everyone who commented on the drivel that I posted late last night. I had to send it into trash. This is a re-write. Possibly just as bad but maybe not as embarrassingly so lol …

    I’ve returned to school on top of work as well as carrying the worry of family illnesses. My muse runs off when things get hectic, I don’t blame her though, I’d run off if I could, haha!

    Yes that is my greatest hope to be better versions of ourselves every time, perfectly stated

    I’ve missed you too!!! I still can’t figure why I let the beauty go when I get overwhelmed, it certainly is when I need it most…maybe the next version of me won’t be so careless 🙂

    i’m sorry that i had to lose earlier comments when i sent the original of this to trash

    i’m also sorry that some quite nice comments and feed-backs have to stay unseen, identified as spam – i’m not going to over-ride that – but wish people would sort themselves out as genuine readers … *sigh

    yes, yes never lighten up! I’m in love with “wondering if this thunder strums each sky as now?” in these extra dimensions you’ve conjured. I’ve been away far too long and I have certainly missed your beautiful words.

      omg – sooo good to see you Lunatique! Where ya been? hmmm?

      I’m glad you liked this .. way better than its first incarnation – but then that’s what we hope for isn’t it? To be better versions of ourselves every time? lol

      i’ve sooo missed you! *hugs
