    Just a small note to let you know I have not forgotten you. I hope all is well.
  3. Isagel! I am at the computer at work--not sure why I don't have it at home, come to think of it (maybe because otherwise I would never read or socialize, lol)--I will write to you tomorrow, oh my goodness! can't believe I haven't logged in in so long as to miss your message from 2 months ago,

    SO HAPPY TO SEE FROM YOU!!!

    Hello there. As you can see, I am not writing ;-). Not often anyway. I have a little sweet spawn that steals my sleep and time. Will post pictures. I hope you are well and I will try to catch up with at least some of your poems. Missed you. Miss writing, but for evrything there is a season...and writing requires a brain. A brain that has slept. The Spawn named Iris does not sleep for long periods of time, and sees no reason why I should.
  5. Amuse, you have returned! Oh, wonderful, wonderful - you have been missed!
    A whole lot of news, for better or worse, has erupted in the world of mono, and I've been meaning to give you a call for some time - glad you got my e-mails, anyway.
    Balzac, yes! Lost Illusions reads with a bit more density than The Black Sheep, but this may also come from its considerable size, too; I recommend either, and both, of them, regardless, and think you would like them. Lo and behold! I have delved a bit into not-dead authors recently, Jonathan Safran Foer among them - have you heard of him? Pas mal, pas mal.
    Anyhoo, great seeing you around again, stranger. Hopefully we can talk again soon.

    I am doing well, too, amuse.
    I just wish that I had more time to spend here, I think that I will request that the day be lengthened by at least two more hours. Don't you think this would be a good plan?

    Hi Amuse. Thank you for stopping by. I wold love to see some more of your poetry. Frankly I don't think I've posted any in ages. Probably nothing new from me since you were here last. I'm glad you're well. I'm well. And I hope you can stop by every so often.

from the kitchen
i navigate
D stairs
to the bathroom,
and L more
from there
to my room

once upon a time
i was afraid of
falling - isn't that
every pregnant
woman's worst
nightmare?

but then i became
excited so i stopped
just counting stairs,
i wanted to
teach you
letters too

your 5 year-old
brother has already
borrowed my copy

aloft

i am in the kitchen
studying o-chem
making muffins.

my despondency
leaks into the batter
out of the D-glucose
onto the blender and
under my tongue;
i taste the swirls of
pain the absence of
her laugh, her
smile, the absence of
her angel eyes

and am startled when

handel breaks
in upon my
silence with "hallelujah!"
and various other
choral

gouge me with a
turret and
clean out my
pores,
scatter my
bones so that
vultures can
sing

i'd like to
pretend
that i am still
clean but the
mirror of hades
is grinning at
me

water/ode to me and l. macbeth

by amuse on 11-02-2006 at 05:41 PM
***this still awaits revision and is not the finished version***

i have been thirsty-
i do not mean
like one in the desert;
that i could stand.

i have craved water
with it all around
holding my cup out under
rivers tumbling

cascading heavily
threatening
to drown
but my cup
remains empty i
cannot be cleansed

and the guilt remains
tattooed on my skin

they fit you perfectly

by amuse on 11-02-2006 at 05:41 PM
i would have loved to
have brushed your
hair and kissed your
cheeks
you were
perfect, precious
if i hadn't cried i
wouldn't have seen
i think you would
have blinded me when
you came to me
i miss you my
love,
my little girl.
you should have been born
today it
kills me to live
without you
i wish i could
have seen you
in the dressing room
told you how beautiful
