Time has it
And angles have it
And even the last hooded shadow has it
Then pragmatism, them simple math, then the end of days
Or southwestern sunsets
And crazy things doubled over after a long walk and a long winter
Saddle up and want not
Pack it in and want at all
Come feathers and something to drink, it does you well
And sleep and whatever tricks you have to yield a quiet mind
While they render and manufacture and tear it all down
Everything that bleeds bleeds

List what you know
Is the new prayer in our everything times
Our everything except higher powers everything times
Our everything right here, right now, always and forever times
Except when you except the field with a pulled hammy
Or you roll up your ankle or get a cramp or you need a drink of water or a pottybreak or your cellphone battery runs out
How fast everything changes if you let it
How some other things don’t change
How slowly your perspective changes like hair growing
How you feel about kittens probably won’t change
How you feel about the weather
The things the moon does.
We gather food and we eat it.
We sleep and we wake up.

Best illustrated by the fact this draft sat with the title “HBO OnDeman” for a couple days
Because I turned on some campy True Blood and fell asleep on the couch before the episode ended
And before I could get back to finishing the thought
It’s easy to write trite things like its easy to blame
It’s fun to use the slipperiest words you can find like like
Fun like inviting you in, I hope
Like the water is warm or the fire is warm and the carpet is soft
You can’t NaPoWriMo wrong
You can’t spend time being disappointed in yourself for falling behind
(I’m convincing myself here)
Remember it as a month in a year if training and stack the years on top of each other
I still have “We’re talking about practice" in my head years after Iverson has retired and I’m sure it’ll be there for years and years to come

When you are so tired that life becomes a spelling exercise
So many things look good, but don’t taste good
So many things sound good
An errant tsar and timings
And things that are bad for you
Dissolution vs. disintegration vs. just plain dissolving like just plain salt and just plain water
When what can you do exits

Really fog hanging
So many is so many
And then now is not

Ladder for the latter
Sounds in the yard
Talking this bird or that while the cats stalk the halls
And while the cats stalk each other.
Wood on wood will echo through a forest
Distinct cracks you remember way back
Climb here, climb there, and so on.
Or maybe it’s running through backyards at night
Or maybe it’s bikes, bikes, bikes
Or maybe it’s dice and the places walls meet.
The sun is a constant even when it’s presence is not.
The moon is a constant and all the cycles it seeds.
For me, there were airfields and then there wasn’t.
For me, there were cornfields and then there wasn’t.
For me, there were schools and cars and all sorts of people.
Sit on everything cast can mean all at once for a little bit.
