Don’t follow them. Don’t follow these. They will lead you where you may not want to go. Oh wait, I’m sure you will want to go there, to unfold there, to follow the stream of nonsense to the end where you will realize that the stars look different to you, now. You can see them, not as if you are looking back in time, but as if you are looking back in space.Posted By monroe2go On 07.22.2012 @ 4:51 am
I’ve never hired a crew. Once I was part of a crew, I think, but it lasted only a brief time, as I left in the second day. Some folks, I just think they might work better on their own. Or better as a pair. The fewer opinions involved, the easier it is to get your way. Hah.Posted By monroe2go On 07.15.2012 @ 10:01 pm
I go outside to look at the horizon, still glowing faintly from the sun’s departure from the sky. I’m struck with a sense of being right where I should be, right where I belong. It’s beautiful and terrible and my eyes well up with tears, and I start laughing.Posted By monroe2go On 06.11.2012 @ 1:27 am
I signed it in my own blood. I signed it in my own blood, and when I think about it now it feels like something rising up in my chest trying to force it’s way out through my mouth. My stubborn nature should not have allowed this, my stubborn nature has me chastising myself, over and over again, for letting my will bend like a live tree branch. And then for letting it snap like a dead one.Posted By monroe2go On 06.05.2012 @ 7:20 pm
What you would do for something you could add to your accusatory glare. I don’t have any room inside me for this, so I empty all the excess in buckets that I dip in to the maelstrom until they are filled with old memories, and I walk barefoot with them through these redwoods until I find a suitable place to dump them. I cover them with leaves so no one can find another reason to look at me sideways. And I walk back home, feeling guilty and a little lighter.Posted By monroe2go On 06.05.2012 @ 1:26 am
Proliferate this ascending pattern. Whisk me away to the rings of Saturn. Drip drip drip like the kitchen sink. If only if only we had time to think! Don’t think, don’t look before you leap, jump in head first with your arms wide open with your heart wide open with your mind just open to me. I chased you across the country and you ended up chasing me. From Seattle to Key West, and we walked the whole way. We are living the dream. We’re in love, we are free. With my feet in the ocean, with my hoop around my hips, I think of the rings of Saturn and I think of you. I’ll see you again some day, probably in Peru, by a different sea and with a different view.Posted By monroe2go On 03.15.2012 @ 12:23 pm
I’ll petition you to change your mind about me with a declaration of my love for you by the fireside. We are cast in the orange glow of it all and the stars are blazing above us. There’s no night like tonight. There’s no where like right here right now. There’s no sound like these melodious gypsy beats that swirl through this warm air. You laugh, you smile, you see me, from this night on, in a different light.Posted By monroe2go On 03.13.2012 @ 11:58 pm
I’ve been hula hooping outside in the courtyard of this beautiful hostel in New Orleans for days now. Fancy finding one here. Circular motion is so very soothing. The lush Nawlins winter and the bluegrass on the radio adds to it. At night, I go traipsing down neon bourboun street. Walking in circles, just like my hoop.Posted By monroe2go On 01.28.2012 @ 3:14 pm
I’m swinging back and forth dangerously between one future I want for myself and another. I want to run away with the hippies. I want to walk the line between society and rejecting society. I want to blend in when I have to, I want to stay off the grid when I can. I want to be the hinge. I want to hold both of my prevalent faucets together.Posted By monroe2go On 01.23.2012 @ 3:05 pm
I built a fence around you. I built it by myself. I didn’t do it on purpose, I don’t want to be kept out. Deconstructing a fence should never be this hard. They are so much easier to build.
I have a fence around my heart, but there is a gate, and if you ask me I will give you the key.Posted By monroe2go On 01.22.2012 @ 12:09 pm
I ran away from home yesterday, no joke. How coincidental. I left DFW, I am in Houston. I’m headed to New Orleans, to Florida, then north. I’m going wherever I damn well please. I truly ran seven months ago. And I have hope. For some reason, all of this running gives me hope.
Runway. Lol.Posted By monroe2go On 01.21.2012 @ 2:33 pm
