i’m sorry but i can’t keep quiet any more

i have never hated anything
as much as i hate printers
and using them
to print

Tale #127: To Forget, To Forget

Take a strand of hair
a drop of blood
and a pinch of salt
from a long forgotten sea

Mix it together
with a mouthful of milk
a half-remembered dream
and a lifetime or more of misplaced guilt

Drink it down
close your eyes
and try, try, try
not to sleep

It won’t help, of course. Nothing will. But at least the work involved in it’s preparation will keep you busy, and the effort, perhaps, will allow for the projection of some meaning onto a past where there was none, onto whatever horror it is you’re trying to forget.

the frogs at the end of my garden
are scared
