I’m Not Going

I'd pUt mY oWn FaMiLy On iT! These words ring out in your head,As you look down at the boarding ticketβ€” 737 MAX; (The max, the max,It's the 'MAX' that does it!Standing blatantly as it does, for MAXimum profits); Oh the connotations that name conjures up…Whatever you do, from now on,It'll always be synonymous with … Continue reading I’m Not Going

Open Return

Rumination's creeping back in,β€”There we go,If I want a metaphor for the bones-in-back-garden story,That's the thing which I have in the closet,In the bulky sports bag stashed under the bed, And I guess the emotions are quite similarβ€”This gnawing feeling,Twang of dread reigning back any positive emotions,Replacing them with guilt and shame; I just have … Continue reading Open Return

I secretly love it when a big technology company,Accidentally 'bricks' everyone's machines (even when I'm a victim!); The big upgrade, announced with great fanfare,Is unbeknownst (yet) to you,Entirely premature…!

Creative Moments

Creativity,Anchors me back into reality; When there are so many internal mental forces,Dictating where my time goes,β€”Once I've come out of one particular brain state,Whether it's anxious, unfocused, lethargic, When trying to follow structure involves too many demands at the moment,When lacking a structure leaves me feeling empty, once I can snap out of OCD, … Continue reading Creative Moments

Intercision

What to do,When family is stalking you?When after too much trauma,You cannot hear from them? When you don't want to share anymore of yourself,Even when it's passive,Via observing your creations; Damn, damn, damn; I tried to cut the contact,Cut it cleanly,To separate myself,From that external dΓ¦mon, "Intercision was the process by which a human was … Continue reading Intercision
