Saturday notes:

writing plans
are coming together
(news comes later)
it’s not
easy
I tell you
I should
really
emphasize that

anyway,
I’m in a spot
where if you
sneeze
they
bless you
with
“bless you”

it’s true that
if you really
write for
a long period
the words
flow
easier

and you
can
open up
a franchise

a little history of
my writing:

it began in
zines and
picked up
through spoken
word coffee shops

and I’d scrawl
my pieces into
a notebook
on the bus

the big thing
was to grab
that next
available seat
really take
that for granted
(many trips spent
entirely standing)

I learned to write
in truncated language
and abbreviation
’cause the bus
would shake
all to hell

not that NPR
has asked

. . .

a cold
c. has explained
the science
of how
the common cold
develops
but I forgot it
fast
only
know it
in caveman essence

this makes me feel…

rested a lot
late broke
outta the house

to hear a woman
talk about how she’s
in a chicken leg phase
but if she works out
they can really
look cool again

don’t get me wrong
I’m not complaining

the oddness of
the various sound bites
around me is intriguing
and why I come
down here
in the first place

the place is
mostly cleared out dead
and quiet
good good
barking dog
new album by boards of canada
friends swing by for
a second
these are good people

“transition between hot and cold
no matter how
you do it
it’s always hard”
