NOTES

9.2018


...found something of interest. 

middle of night

awake in bed

staring at the ceiling

turning to find comfort

for three hours straight...


the object was hardly foreign in spirit

but the shape was surprising


I'd seen it before

a few times throughout my life


a piece of art

a sculpture


an artifact

.


'77

a movie

close encounters of the third kind

sitting in my theater chair

the bay theater


the moment the actor connects

the sculpture

with the monument on the television

.


6.18


as i cut, hack, chop

chisel the log

with unrelenting fervor


my wife is wondering

checking on me

confused

pissed

curious...


so am I

.


'75

717 toyopa dr.

palisades


the sun was setting


a ticking started in my head

a moment of awareness


i was running around the front yard

alone

when it started


feelin like an airplane

zooming the tree trunks


feelin like a dune buggy

hoppin the hedges


I slowed down when I felt it

then stopped to see if it would keep going


thought there was something stuck

in my hair

clicking off my skull

while running around


nope


standing still as can be


totally at random

few and far between


1 second click


5 seconds click        click


20 seconds click


2 seconds click         click


what the heck


was it in my head


was someone working near by


in a garage or somethin

tappin at somethin


sounds bouncing off surfaces

playing tricks with me


i looked around


huh


no one was there


i mean the neighborhood street

was completely empty of anyone


something about it

felt super rad

gave me a  sudden rush of euphoria


tick


click




click click


like a droplets of water

tapping the top center of my skull


in morse code


dang

wish i knew morse code


then it stopped


.
