How tundra came.


A wintastery
Rice paper lanterns float
on cascading milky ways.

Thoughts stand frozen
like star prints
in the meridian.

On the glacier 
under the snow – the bones
were crackling with the wind.

Memories drift from
the gauze of moonbeams –
like a veiled volcano.

Sleeping in the sparkling.
There, I buried –
forgotten in the frostline.


Sharp claws of black
scratch the surface –
a curious rejection. 

Roused from dream.
I met an immense shadow
in a pair of eyes.

These meetings
set out under ice 
flows inside out.

You see me
I see you
another no other.


Go quiet as breath,  
toward the density. 
Troubles are a search.
I hear the lament -
the ballad of yesteryear.

The red rhythm beats
La neige blues meet
We all fall down.

I have been there -
lying in times past
gradient back traces.


The ice fields open
and he doesn't see me.
This shimmer.

Something has happened.
The moon lights up the sky.
We knew about it.

Hear the silence.
I hum a secret, to reach
all the way in there.

A vibration of the heart
What a strange calm -
the inner pulse.

Drama of Associology
a statement

Associology  is not a discipline.  It is the evidence of a drama.
Drama is a relationship.  The relationship is ongoing.  Associology is an act of devotion in the relationship.
I want to believe that in associology the act of drama is its own reward.
I want to believe the drama, when one devotes oneself to it, extends beyond the boundaries of drama.
I want to believe associology values inquiry over conclusion.
To attempt to be conclusive is to attempt to make dramas that are, in effect, statements.
Attempting to make a statement with associology undermines the idea that drama is a relationship.
These words are a statement and they are not associology.

:: Note :: ... statement heavily influenced by Douglas Witmer ... the idea of Associology came from supervalentthought : 
A poetics of associology whose noise world sits me down in disbelief at the rare freedom of other people’s minds. Not because attention gets things right (any more than attachment guarantees love), and not because there’s always in operation productive energy that can never be tamed but because—in these poems, and for me–revolt requires curiosity, a tipping over on a verge.

Why write songs

"What is it that makes you want to write songs? In a way you want to stretch yourself into other people's hearts. You want to plant yourself there, or a at least get a resonance, where other people become a bigger instrument than the one you're playing. It becomes almost an obsession to touch other people. To write a song that is remembered and taken to heart is a connection, a touching of bases. A thread that runs through all of us. A stab to the heart. Sometimes I think songwriting is about tightening the heartstrings as much as possible without bringing on a heart attack." 
- (Life  - Keith Richards)
