1. Philip Larkin’s “Faith Healing”

    In everyone there sleeps 
    A sense of life lived according to love. 
    To some it means the difference they could make 
    By loving others, but across most it sweeps 
    As all they might have done had they been loved.


  2. Old dream maker,

    you heartbreaker,

    where ever you’re going,

    I’m going you way.


  3. Falling (Vocals by Julee Cruise) - Twin Peaks Soundtrack 


  5. "Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you."
    — Jacques Prévert
  7. Everything is quiet. Everything is very still. I dig my toes into the lazy earth. Time slows and the evening flows like honey. I pull my knees to my chest and watch with half-awake eyes.

    I remember walking with you down a dirt road at four in the morning. The horizon buzzed like a gap-toothed cheshire cat smile spread wide above our heads. We were chasing black dogs and dancing lights. A question slid beneath the canvas of the evening, hid in long, berry-bruised shadows, dripped from the sky like strawberry jam.

    It beckoned to be tasted. And it tasted like love.

    Or a waking dream. Now Autumn is lifting the summer heat from the soil as she lays her cool bones to rest.

    The leaves will be falling soon. I roll my affection into the open, close my eyes, and I wait.


  8. Black Magic & Magnolia Suns

    Incense, sandalwood, and a half lit cigarette rest by the window in the bedroom of my new apartment. Soft rain drops in small intervals. The air is sultry. It’s heat, soil, and salt. It’s the promise of a new summer. Late nights turn into magnum colored dawns. Unfamiliar faces slowly smile. I pour my sixth cup of gin. Pangs of love-gone-by still prick somewhere deep inside from time to time, but followed without regret. I’ve let go, but I’m not quiet sure I’m ready to move on, just yet. The hot summer is wide open. I only have to walk out the door.  


  9. "Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay;
    I’m martyr to a motion not my own;
    What’s freedom for? To know eternity.
    I swear she cast a shadow white as stone.
    But who would count eternity in days?
    These old bones live to learn her wanton ways:
    (I measure time by how a body sways)."
    — Theodore Roethke 

  11. Coat

    Sometimes I have wanted
    to throw you off
    like a heavy coat.

    Sometimes I have said
    you would not let me 
    breathe or move.

    But now that I am free
    to choose light clothes
    or none at all

    I feel the cold 
    and all the time I think
    how warm it used to be.


  12. Oh you are in my blood like holy wine,

    You taste so bitter and so sweet. 

    Oh I could drink a case of you darling,

    And I would still be on my feet,

    Oh I would still be on my feet. 

    James Blake - A Case Of You (Joni Mitchell Cover) 

  13. "Seems to me, it aint the world that’s so bad but what we’re doin’ to it. And all I’m saying is, see, what a wonderful world it would be if only we’d give it a chance. Love baby, love. That’s the secret, yeah. If lots more of us loved each other, we’d solve lots more problems. And then this world would be better. That’s wha’ ol’ Pops keeps saying." - Louis Armstrong
