Some nights I look up at the Moon and I want to tear it, bleeding from the sky.

I worked on this on and off today.
Usually I don't show them to anyone until they're finished, but I think I'll just share my work in progress.
I'll finish it when the mood hits me again and time allows.

Here we have:

An Insect Collection of Angels

Freshly dumped from the jar, reeking of ethyl acetate
Pinned to Plastazote backings, cards chronicling their exquisite features
Wings tacked down in various states of unfolding
Little halos off kilter but still sharing a luminous corona reflecting off the board
Row after row counted and numbered
Lined up for examination

Here a foot traces a delicate curve
If you touch the bottom of the arch
pushing up toward the metatarsals
how brilliantly our Angel writhes
Spine and foot concave against the sensation
ending with a shudder and the dilation of pupils

There one waits
Dreaming of the water
Eyes easily replaced by an animal fire
Lips swollen and quivering rasping breath
Twisting and clutching
flooding its life out in one last convultion

Another, bound in shades of gold
Wings of a sparrow carressing a coccoon
Dual rings conspiring behind whispers
A crown of holy vapors
Intermittent fires and storms rolling across the plain
Building to a frenzy and slipping into calm

Fear this, oh you dweller of the dust!
You, of the sun and you other, with your insect aversion.
Behold, I come! 
King of Storms, Prince of the Emerald Swamp, Lord of Mosquitos.
Dragging a history of wolves in my wake.
Performing untold and unseen magics in the abyss.
Casting eyes this way breaks your fragile half truths.
Seventeen Angels singing Demise, Destroy, Display.
Who among you can break that covenant?
Scurry fast to your hearth, shutters latched, 
walls stop any light from spreading.
Outside, I howl.

Children of the dusk... What silence they quake in!
Dancing on the edge of a twilight that breaks them.
Settling for the mundane daylight lives - 
Secretly longing for the night's sweet mystery
Overcome by the whispers of the world.
Quiver and settle and pretend.
Tamed, timid and tortured.
This, you trade for life?
Fortune favours the bold.
Silence enables the coward.
Rot where you fall, consumed by the decay of lost possibility.
Stagnant sundered suicide.

"we have a whole world of people looking for salvation.
salvation in a handful of pills.
salvation in a little black dress.
salvation at the bottom of a keg.
salvation in an unborn child.
salvation at the end of the last episode.
salvation between the sheets.
salvation in an empty church.
salvation in an empty bottle."

"Sifu, why are there so many different ways to make a fist?"

"Making a fist is the same as selecting a brush for painting.
For the composition, one must choose wisely the correct size, shape and texture.
If not, the art will suffer, and the outcome will lack in merit"

"Sifu, I do not understand."

"Then perhaps you should spend more time painting."

Sadly, I have noticed that the time stamping has been causing me to have boring 'black and white' entries for some reason. 
We mustn't have that!
so I'll have to make more of an effort in that area.

stupid bland LJ

It was inevitable... but it's here.
I've run myself outta money. eep.
things have been chaos since October
I havent been able to really focus enough to keep up with my finances really well.
the frequent Dr visits and costs of medications and so forth have been bad.
I've been eating on credit for months, basically.
well, I'm all out of credit now lol.
so ummm...
yeah.
bad times are on the way.
but it's ok!
because I am more mentally healthy than I ever have been in my life, and it's not going to stop me from continuing in my pursuit of self improvement and health. I've come so very far, and I am finally at a point where I can see it. I know I'm not perfect, by any means, but I also know I'm not... that
:D

11:00am
I was thinking... about post cards...
They tend to be relatively cheery..
"oh! I am having a great time!" 
"Wisconsin is awesome!"
"Wish you were here!"
"Greetings from Bob's Tomato Farm!"
"Viva Ohio!"
and so forth...

Well... what if you are NOT having a good time?
what if you're like... in jail?
or you're doing something really distasteful, like body removal or toxic waste cleanup?
maybe we need some post cards that say things like:

"Wish I was there"
"Please send help"
"Good God in Heaven, make it stop!"
"Can you believe the crappy colours on these peanut m&ms?"
"Rhode Island Sucks!" (that one is for you, Ms Trouble :P  )
"Greetings from Texas, strange animals are biting me!"
"Arizona! Who knew it was three thousand degrees here?!"
"I don't think I'll live to see you again"
"Out of gas: send Cake!"

mabe we can branch into the greeting card industry too
there are too too many Happy Birthday cards, and not nearly enough specialty cards, such as:

"Curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal!"
"Greetings from JAIL!"
"Congratulations, your wife has AIDS!"
"Your kids suck!"
"Missing you, and wishing you a speedy release"
"Hi! There's sugar in your gas tank!"
"Remember: you can't make an omlette without SHOOTING YOUR FUCKING DOG IF IT SHITS IN MY YARD ONE MORE TIME!"
"Prison Sex: It only hurts the first time!" (heh this one is for you, Queenie [rofl calling you 'Queenie' cracks me up like mad] :P )
"Do you not know who I am?! I'm the Juggernaut, Bitch!"
"It's a (brain damaged) Boy!"
"Will you Be my Fuck Buddy?"
"Missing you: your tormented wails would sing me to sleep! I get released in a month! See you soon!"

the list could go on and on and on.
maybe I should add these to my list of things to make someday.
although realistically, some place surely has already done this. I couldn't be bothered to google it up, and anyhow, it IS a good idea :P

1:15pm

back before my internet died, i was looking at my friends list one day....

and [livejournal.com profile] plastichero had said something in passing about vultures.

to which i commented:
"when i was young, my dad captured a vulture with a hurt wing, and brought it home to be our beloved pet! i was never happer. for about 5 minutes.

then i got WAY happier, as the vulture bit through my dads knuckles down to the bone! that was great!

then i got real sad, as the vulture escaped into the woods and was never seen again :(

i loved him dearly for what he did to my dad."


which is a completely true story.

[livejournal.com profile] plastichero replied with:
"I don't know which I love more. The story itself or your simple,writing style. I can see it in my mind like a comic. Each sentence with its own respective box."


and i come back today, and discouver this!
the story of my life )

yeeeee haw!
