Life's getting a bit crazy at the moment, but I'll find a way.
I'll wade through all the work, and push past all the pushy people, and try to make it all work. Wish me luck.

I Am From...I'm from the French Garden in Jonathan's Room,I Am From... by ~Surustu
To my own stifled closet full of Delia's jeans.
I'm from anything cooked in Georgia's home-style,
To fair food as heart-stopping as the carnival rides.
I'm from the swung speech of a Southerner's twang,
To the capricious talks of "redeeming reputations."
I'm from viewing a world with my Grandmother's eyes,
To painting the sights with my Aunt's hands.
I'm from silent nights spent in silent books,
To chattering pencils speaking scratchily on paper.
I'm from sidewalks colored like TV static,
To shoe ornaments on the wires dangling above them.
I'm from journeys taken by my brother's

Setting the rhythm for my restless heart,
I pressed onwards up the crosswalk

Clad in, what else

Our fingers, the chosen ones, met at their respective ends, where fingerprint would crosshatch fingerprint, confusing identity in between. We were children miming the motions of adults, quoting their language, their words, using their clothing as capes to fly into our own sense of adulthood, maturity. We ran across time as if it were borrowed, inaccessible to reality, parallel systems that interacted only in surreal moments of passion, disillusionment..your cough. by ~slurpeesncigarettes

love is strange
working through many avenues-
sometimes, it takes a peak
of shoulders through a slim
other times, it takes a year of
friendship and not caring if she
fucked your friends or not, if
your friends loved her
and still other times, it takes a bed
and too many hands and not enough
space and little time to wait and no
time to waste-
and no time to wait.
