i thought for sure i was in for a shit day after watching the Yankees suffer a walk off loss to the Angels (fucking house of horrors) and being pissed off going to bed.
glad i was wrong.
got startled out of sleep by a voice i was dying to hear from. always a good thing.
woke up to a poem being published at The Camel Saloon. check out the previous post for a link to it. it's one of the best poems i've written in some time.
and then something started falling from the sky. holy shit, RAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it wasn't as much as i would have liked but it did last for a few hours. got everything wet at least. and there's (supposedly) more on the way.
typed up the 6 poems i wrote yesterday. they got better as they went from my chicken scratch notebook to the computer. i will probably send them out in submissions in June.
my shipment from amazon.com came 2 days early. i don't believe that has ever happened before.
now i'm off to go relive childhood dreams of a 5'9 white kid playing in the NBA.
music for today:
Grant Lee Buffalo - Mighty Joe Moon
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
Ana Tijoux - La Bala
Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town
Fun. - Some Nights
Johnny Paycheck - The Soul & The Edge
yes, i agree, that combination makes absolutely no sense at all. welcome to my world.
