nose

we were kings




on the train now
heading back to the city...

will it rain tonight
and block out the full moon?

will I ever be able to change all the stupid wasteful people in the
world?
will I learn to accept them? and myself?
will i, someday, surpass this Karmic cycle and not have to suffer
through it so frequently? ever?

nose

emotions seriously

I want to fill Tom's shuffle the rest of the way with indie folk country sad ballads

amazed
Elliot smith
Lloyd Cole
stephin Merritt

of course

people who are able to wield emotions so deftly
do they take them seriously?
as they play with them...
play
it's a game
such heart-wrenching feelings
right?


of course
that is why I should be writing pop songs
to play with emotions

obviously I take emotions too seriously
terrified by them
stifled
not exactly paralyzed
but made insane

but not to numb out to them
to delve into them and wield them
yes?


just playing
making art
just playing
