fragments

curious moon
and the dark
is out.

silence?

I should know you by now
or at least
feel comfortable

giving you a hug.

I like

the sound of your voice
from inside your chest.

I could stay here

with my heart pressed
but
there are things to tend to
candy rock hunting season
is almost
over.

strange


cold clocks
are running
backwards

green apple
dresses
are inviting
sleep

water

Nostalgia

turn up the volume.
boost the color.
change
me.

But I like you this way
stay
and
we'll talk
I miss you

Turn up the volume
change the channel
run around naked

Be with me


but I just saw you yesterday
and the day before
today
and today
I want to be like music

I'm listening

"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost. The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is; nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel OPEN. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed UnReSt that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others"

Martha Graham to Agnes De mille
