Give MN Back to Canada

June 30, 2008

temperature falls the cold and crispy clean breathing in what’s left of the air brains freeze to my sleep I crystallize make no mistake, we’re far away chemicals die this has to be the same a restless breaking-free of a fantasy sounds don’t put up a fight reverberate I just don’t know what else to […]

The Surrealist Diary Poem

May 24, 2008

I won’t make a habit out of posting these, but they’re fun. I came up with this idea a few years ago. Write about what you did today (Microsoft Word or similar works best. Notepad doesn’t) then randomly select and move stuff around until it looks like a poem. Clean it up and post it […]

Escape Song

May 19, 2008

The Coldest Day of the Year

May 1, 2008

I can’t help but take this the wrong way if the wrong way is mine to take you got me on salvaged time spin me around all that I can think lately is that I just need time to escape what good’s that gonna do just to come back to you? I had a dream […]

Lost at Home

April 26, 2008

I need to motivate myself to work on this one: set down in the middle don’t walk away hold on to something to make you stay steer clear of the exits emergencies only don’t take this place for granted it’ll burn you out eventually lost at home how it all seems new and oddly strange […]
