Bob



Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin',
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden,
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
Where black is the color, where none is the number,
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
But I'll know my song well before I start singin',
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

it's okay though

the absence of comments on this blog
makes me think nobody reads it.
this is a comfort for me,
because i only pretend i'm an extrovert.
the magic of the internet.
in reality, i secretly hope nobody ever notices me.

i'm going to my friend's wedding today and
i have no idea what i'm going to wear.
to tie or not to tie, that is the—
you know what it is.
and my trousers?
shit.
i need to go shopping
for smaller clothes.
this makes me happy and
my wallet depressed,
because it carries no money.

before we get to the wedding location,
i'm going to make lisa stop at taco bell:
(1) because i'm so hungry right now.
(2) because i deserve a beefy cheesy burrito
or whatever they're called.
(3) because i'm a jerk.

please, continue not reading my blog and
also continue not commenting.
thank you.

Time, Rain and Hot Tamales

napt the nap of all naps.

slept the sleep of all sleeps.

the last few days
of limited amounts of sleep
found their way back to me yesterday afternoon.
all of it has attacked at once.
10-hours worth forced upon me in an instant.
i didn't even feel it coming!

smack!

it was 5pm
the last time i looked at the time.
now it's nearly 10-past-3am
and i'm slightly more cognitive
than i'd like to be at such an early hour.
an indelicate use of time!

Pain or Now It Is Gone



pain.
behind my right eye.
the sensation is intermittent.
coming and going
in 5-minute intervals.
feels like a slight headache. or
in this case
a slight eye ache.
aleve isn't aleving very well.
hope i don't die in my sleep.
have to work in the morning.
hate to leave my co-workers hanging.
pain.
hot hot shower.

[i know. i know.
i should get my head checked.
i've been told.
i will. someday.]

Superwashers!




do you think "sinatra"
is a cool name
for a dog/cat/pet?
i think
if i ever have a pet
or two or three
all of them will have names
borrowed from my favorite singers.
bob, roy, sinatra, yorke
time for dinner!

In Rainbows



they never disappoint me. never.
when I listen to this album
all i can think is "wow!"
radiohead. in rainbows. get it!

and a wafer-thin mint

i'm like fozzie bear; stuft
spicy creole pasta w/shrimp & sausage
pieces of a vegetarian pizza
random cakes of varying flavors
huge bowl of ice cream
oh and
there was beer
the beer i drank and
the beer that i spilled
[i'm sorry lauren]
