!! "Neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds"

i put on a show a few days after my birthday. sixteen people came and sat on alphabet squares and drank. my setlist, on the back of a 7 year old's birthday invitation, looked like this -

1. prayer for a beetle who died in vermont
2. reunion with an imaginary friend
3. caleb's alphabet
4. radio war [iron and wine]
5. tianchi lake [mountain goats]
.monsters throwing up rainbows.
6. 5 am in a library
7. letters to emma (who also doesn't exist)
8. i bid you goodnight [traditional]

monsters throwing up rainbows was apparently my name for the mandatory audience-participatory junk band jam. i also made someone play kazoo harmony on the alphabet song and made everyone sing along so as to have 4 vocal parts for the spiritual at the end. i was kind of sick that weekend and i'd never sung in front of people or performed my own music but i think it went well because i know i put all the feeling into it i could and i think everyone enjoyed being there. i wanted to do something terrifying for my birthday, and i had fun being scared. <3

suzy and i have been sleeping a bit on a roof at 50th and hazel. i felt i was on some craft blown about by the wind all last night. i'm not sure if i slept this summer but summer is fading crashing and changing out and parts of my brain i had to let go to sleep are cautiously starting to not so cautiously fidget and jump up and down and getting ready to wake. i lived a week in Maine where i saw blueberries every time i closed my eyes. i'm the only person at my job without a coworker but that also means i can facilitate exactly the kind of energy i want to in the room and it's becoming the job i both love and like again. i have this new kid who eats up books and rattles off words like "ichtyosaur" without blinking an eye. as usual, if you're reading this i probably miss you. i dig this city quite a bit but i seriously hope to get in more boston / ny time now that summer craziness is winding down. ok! love and dinosaurs

[6 year old with dad in jail for life, pensive lego-building moment] "i wish i had a twin brother"
"why do you say that?"
[a bit offhand, as if it should be obvious] "so i can give him a wedgie!"

i love so many things that have been happening these days. i hope to sleep this summer so that i can love them all proper.

ps i will be in boston this weekend. come play. everyone! why? probably because you're awesome and i miss you.

"It must be my spine," he thought with his head against the wall. The rest of the morning he rose like a sunflower or a lamp. Dusk wilted the stem in his favorite weather, sideways and grey his head fell off. The earth was damp, thick he sank. Dirt drawn to the wet cavities of his skull told him of rocks and fire and the warm soft innards of worms. Green seeped from his irises until his eyes took in the color of dust. He felt so dizzy, drained in one day of fluid and sky. Knowing the sky never answers, he'd call out, expel noise thought and spit but it'd just moisten the soil in his ears. On the fourth or fifth day pressure pushed his eye and his hair uncurled to draw nutrients from low ground where a young boy had buried a fish. This sensation distracted him - taking root was dimly like having sex with the earth. When the pressure broke his eye he thought only warmth, stretching, bees. The seedpod burst only bzz, pff. In autumn there were potatoes every color of the rainbow though he didn't see any at all.

only because ricky tagged me and i would like to actualize that

1) i never buy a book without smelling it first.

2) i move my mouth when i play piano.

3) i check under the seat every time i leave a train, even if i'm not carrying anything.

4) i still do that thing where you wink back and forth and everything moves left-right left-right

5) i pick my nose. no, that's normal.. when driving the truck i pick my nose and eat it like five times if a little kid's looking.
