Poetry: Fan Girl

After a day spent listening to my entire collection of Gackt albums (I own his complete discography), I found myself falling asleep a few minutes ago, long enough to just barely start to dream. I don’t often remember my dreams, but this one was a doozie and made me realize that I had spent far too much time immersed in Gackt’s amazing voice today. It took me to another world… another life. When I woke up with my hair looking all ridiculous from having passed out on the dining room table, “Fan Girl” came out. I don’t promise quality here, I was half-awake when I wrote it.

I have to admit, sometimes it is really cool to wake up from a dream of some guy that you are never going to meet, with the most beautiful white wings, whispering to you in a language that you’ve immersed yourself in for the last year.… [Read More]

Hillary for President

I may have said something about this before, but I feel the need to say it again so, here goes.

I am a woman.
I am, politically speaking, a centrist.
I refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton.

1. She lost my respect when she stayed in a marriage with a man who lied about having cheated on her to a federal grand jury.
2. Income redistribution is bullshit as it only encourages the population to do less for society, and not more.
3. She may have threatened a woman that Bill Clinton may have raped.
4. Did you see that stink with David Geffen and Obama? I may not even end up voting for Obama (though right now, I’m very tempted to), but I was so proud of Obama for telling Hillary that he had nothing to apologize for because he wasn’t the one who’d been critical of her. He was RIGHT!… [Read More]

Damn

The more I write, the more I realize that I am a poet and not a short fiction writer. Not so much anyway. The things that set my soul in motion and really make me think and feel, and be… are poems.

Here’s one for you:

Patriot Act Abuse and Political Leanings

AXcessNews.com – FBI Abuse of Patriot Act Prompt Calls for Reform

When the Patriot Act was passed, this sort of thing was my biggest concern with its passing, so I’m not surprised to see it. I also think that everyone should be aware that these kinds of things are going on in our country. It’s not a perfect system, many of us know that but many more of us are not completely aware of it until it gets dropped in our laps. Enjoy the article.

More interesting to me than things that I already suspected were being done, is what was said in the last two paragraphs of this article. These last two paragraphs exemplify why I vote for Republicans.

Sen. Arlen Specter (PA), the Judiciary Committee’s ranking Republican, told reporters that Congress may “impose statutory requirements and perhaps take away some of the authority which we’ve already given to the FBI, since they appear not to be able to know how to use it.”

Note what Specter says here.… [Read More]

Summer in a Bottle.

It’s cold here tonight and I’ve been fighting off a sinus infection for quite some time so I’ve been going through fevers and fighting off cold chills, but tonight I spent an hour just bathing in the glow of Summer. It felt so good.

I’m reading Ray Bradbury’s “Dandelion Wine” for my final paper of my associates degree. It’s just a literary analysis, no big deal, but I wonder if I can really capture everything that is in this book all at once in five pages the way that Grandpa Spaulding managed to capture all that is wonderful and radiant about Summer in a single bottle of dandelion wine. I’m not sure if I can, but I know that I can try.

So this is just a thank you to Ray Bradbury for his wonderful book that was written nearly twenty years before I was even born. Thank you for capturing Summer and reminding me why I loved Summer so much when I was a child, and giving me a reason to realize that in spite of the fact that I’m not a kid anymore, Summer doesn’t have to grow up and go away.… [Read More]
