The Arc

The Arc

Once: a hill.
Now: a fortress.
Eventually: a dig site.

Lone Star Stories

I closed Lone Star Stories in July of 2009, but I've kept the site up since then. I'm sure I won't reopen it, and now I'm wondering if there's any reason to keep the site up any longer.

Annual Post on Poem Visibility

Although I'm not in write-and-post-a-poem-every-day mode, I do write and post poems here on LJ quite often. So, if anyone who can't currently see my poems would like to (or if anyone who can see them prefers not to any longer), please let me know in the comments section below.

Comments on the poems themselves are, of course, always welcome.

Thanks!

Daily Poem Access

I wrote my 42nd daily poem in a row tonight, posted here and accessible to my "Poetry Readers" friends group. If you would like to read my poems but are not in the group, please let me know, and I'll add you.

Time for Another Poem-a-Day Run

A recent LJ comment from sartorias prompted some self-examination on my part. It seems I need a spur, the longer-lasting the better, to produce poetry more than occasionally. So, without a writing group or a workshop to help me, I just have self-imposed challenges. That being the case, I've decided to start another write-poem-a-day-for-a-year project today. I'm not sure whether the poems will be posted publicly as they were in 2012, but I'm definitely going to write a lot of poems for the next twelve months. Thanks for the impetus, Sherwood! :-)

I Find that Disconnectedness Is Overrated

Around July of last year, I found myself feeling more and more disconnected from social media, from the writing/poetry community, from most everything but my family. So, I stopped tweeting, reading tweets, blogging, and reading blogs. This also coincided with a marked reduction in my poetry writing and reading (and the happiness that poetry filled me with). This went on until, well, today, when I realized that I'd lost something important to me: a place to read and discuss writing-related issues, a place to connect with people who I like and admire and who inspire me to write. So, I've decided to reboot my online presence, as a reader, participant, and writer. Will I be happier? Maybe, maybe not. But I'll certainly feel more fulfilled. And if my online presence helps inspire others to write more, read more, feel more fulfilled, that will be very cool. So, hello again, folks!

Dust in the Tunnel

Dust in the Tunnel

There's no innoculation
to the infection of

air pockets & earth magic
that spreads through transit

stations excavated beneath
lost cities of neanderthals.

Everything falls to dust
in the tunnel to extinction.

Twitter poems

My last two poems have appeared on Twitter. Something about the small amount of text space appeals to me at the moment. Here they are:

Nothing

The text fades away,
pixel by pixel,
until only the

space

between words remains;
the poetry of emptiness
fills me with zeroes.

----

after the fire

the charred tree
whispers warnings
of shatter-falls

in my charcoaled
ears as i claw
towards its top

i see my future
and continue
to climb

prison shadows

prison shadows

chainlink fences
sag in zig-zags.

tattered uniforms
flutter in razor wire.

empty towers stare
into the night.

dog shadows
circle, circle.

Reflection

Reflection

Aviator
shades
reflect
puddle
jumper
wings
melting
in the
red sky's
sun lens
and the grip
of volcanic
glass fingers,
amputated
by time.
