thoughts (fragments)

there is a fountain by the pool. I do not like it, it deceives me. In the evenings when it's on, it sounds like it raining, but ___it isn't. __The sky doesn't feel like it's raining. (and yet, there's the sound of it.
______a mild torture. (reminds me on unrequited lust(


i received a too-nice text message. reminded me that this is still somethingwho i am. even when i'm feeling sterile , and dry-lipped. even under that there's a fossil with a few words imprinted on it. probably with a too large proportion of adjectives.


- Q, no. No.
- what? why?
- no Q.
- what are you worried about,? i'm fine, i'm okay with this
- no, I'm not worried about you - you're fine - i'm worried about her.
- what!

- Judas!
- no!
- yes!

- what kind of friend are you!, stop Judas-ing me!
- yah, whatever cowboy. Let me tell you, as a girl, you're like the seven plagues of Egypt sugar coated in a charming wrapper.

We sit at a table to celebrate his disappointment. 'Either we'll have dinner. Either it'll be to celebrate, or to distract you and rage on those whose decision was wrong'.

When we get up and leave, it's still nameless. 2011 was my transition year. But I see 2012 as an extension of that. It's an unexpected appendage to 2011, a growth.



- no, this would have been even before that. I don't think you've ever been emotionally accessible. Not totally anyway.

- this may come as a shock to you, but some people are motivated by human relations [i stare at him a while] ('what does that even mean that doesn't mean anything how can blahblahing motivate anything?'). i thought it might shock you.
- you've never been in a relationship you hadn't already found an exit strategy out of, have you?


it excites me to be awake
i hear wind, it hears me.
tomorrow is a distant fragment of disappointment,
an intangible future i am not concerned in/with.


in the magic stillness of my bedsheets i see the angular shapes of the summer girls sitting on the train. all ankles and naked shoulders and unbrushed hair. challenging eyes, demanding my reason for looking at her. i give the bedsheets the same questioning, curious gazes back.
______somewhere in all this, there is some epiphany that will wake me. re-enliven me.
