brewing stories. smoking hookahs

Happy weekend blog family as we bid July farewell and move into the final month of summer.

Last night my roommate and I decided that we needed to go out. Really… we needed to…. between the insanely long hours he works and me trying to balance word sorting and nervous breakdown patterns… going out was imperative.

Our wanders led to a divine West Village hideaway where we were tucked into a tiny linen fortress and presented with deliciousness after deliciousness while one of the hottest women I have ever seen in my life shook her hips and rolled her body in ways that simply defy my previous understanding of human possibility.

a brief rant and a framed mirror

First thing’s first – brief rant:

I tend to fly solo. Perhaps this is a common trait of Writers? Not sure. Furthermore, I don’t sleep. On certain days, like today, this creates a striking crimson backdrop to my green irises.

a day in new york city. vita sentimentale.

vita sentimentale

People say not to.
I laugh. Reply.
I know that you’re right.
This is
New York City.
Pull your head in.
Defeat’s arrival
In absence of fight.
Courage of face
Tedious to me.
Dim who I am
From fear of rejection.
Foreign species. Dictate how to be.
Reside. Within.
Running doesn’t change.
Who you are…
Virtual status, perpetual move.
What if I said that nothing feels far?
Buried in city.
Chewed tongue. Dug claws.
Wishing on stars.
You might see.
What I saw.

claustrophobic cadence

Music. Instruments.
Amalgamate tempo.
Construct pulse.
(slow movements)
Without snapping.
Without. A loud. POP.
Even. An ocean.
Cannot alter.
Time zones.
… a 3am plea.
