Today is a day to listen to Death Cab For Cutie. That’s what I think.

       Various things have happened, or not happened. I’m falling back into my old poetic ways, seeing as how I haven’t worked on my “novella” at all. And anyway, poetry is better to describe things that I’m thinking about, because I can be as ambiguous as necessary and people are okay with that because it’s “poetic.” This new poem doesn quite capture everything that I dwelling on, but it will do for now.

       I’ve been having ups and downs lately. Or rather. I’m paying attention to them more that I usually do.

       Bohemien Rhapsody is… amazing. (So what if I hadn’t heard it until recently; I had a sheltered childhood.)

       I really don’t have much else to say right now.

Indefinite Distance

That night
you
are next to me
on the curb
and wee not
speaking but
I know you
are there and we
aren awkward

I want it to last
forever
but I don know when
Il see you
again?
or if Il ever
see you
at all.

    I felt that first comment was important enough it had to be on it’s own. Now that that’s done, Bohemian Rhapsody…Queen. Also delightful.
    Anywho, Indefinite Distance. Somber. Sincere. It made me think of looking at the stars.I don’t want to sound cliche, but thats really what it made me think of because that’s when I think best.
    Yeah, I think I had it so that that the people were the blood. I have a little scribble to the side about how the people are dead and yet they are being fed as the life force of the city. I liked the after thought that left. Then I remember I liked how “framework walkway” sounded together, rough and caustic like the square sidewalks the people walked/got pumped on.

    I actually saw something today that reminded me of your comment. I was at a local cafe for lunch and there was an elderly couple right across from me. They didn’t talk – they didn’t need to. They had spent a lifetime together and quite simply didn’t need words. They were so in love. I didn’t know them but I knew it just as well, the passion, the affection, the love – wonderful things in life that can only be built up to the extent that it all radiated from them.
    Then when they left, they held hands. It really made my day.
