I’ll begin another nap today, a hiatus from everything written, from all creative ambitions for which I feel such disconnect at present. I might be back, or not. I leave my testament here, only time will tell if it will be my final say.

Note to self & listeners... You know those 20+ years you wrote from the heart not really considering the reader and how the words would be perceived in the mind of the receiver... Those years matters not; or matters little in the grand plan of ... everything.
After a few months of studying the art of poetry I find them pretentious and vain. Them being the reference of learning and marks.
So here I stand at the crossroads of all. How to go on, and how to to find my purpose -- here?
Any ideas? Any suggestions for one lost at sea ...

Note to tumblr (if you’re listening)
I am really disappointed how you just randomly disconnect me from the blogs I follow. If I don’t see any posts from a particular writer I assume they are busy with their life, doing whatever people do in their lives, I am not assuming you HAVE DISCONNECTED ME FROM THEIR FEED :/
But I will from now on. @staff , I am not amused.

But you might be responsible for #somepoets missing ink?
Honcho says I’m probably not a missing link, @braincoins!!

I’m sure the yarn will release @feverfewm eventually... Maybe there’s an adventure a story to be told here... I know one about a stationary bicycle wanting to see the world... but & no .., maybe not... Twitter is a different world altogether...

and the poet worried about the imagery of the current week / about not finding enough metaphors to satisfy the average reader / about using those second-hand phrases passed down in anger ; in anguish as you searched your own limited vocabulary / and the poet worried about the coming week / about having to — rhyme / about having meters tangling their freely spoken words / about fitting the academic world into their — playground

I’m a big fan of her drawings. I’d call them professional doodling but that would still be beneath her. Class act.
Hey guys, check out April Sailsbury-White’s ( @electricarmchair ) new song and music video Counter Clockwise :)
Strange and faraway out-of-space drifting vibes 🤙

I won’t post a formal review (as I’m crap at those) but after a first read there are thirteen dog-ears :D

& yet your poem is currently stewing —
sizzling under a broken cooker hood,
covered in cheap butter, uncovered
like the poets face /:
like the toast of one ((
the ink of wizards ))
*** you bleed but no one hears ***
They peeled you
— for their own
They left the full stop behind — be

Yes we all imagine... with horrors and ... oh no — a Jay spoke in #ALLCAPS *runs off on search off the prayer mat*
IMAGINE IF A JAY FORGOT TO EAT A LUNCH?! I might get cross like Charlie!!

Ten things you can get if only you ask for them
1. Ask at your local establishment for The Man. The Man moves about a lot, but without asking you will never know if he is in your area or not.
2. Ask anyone for the moon on a stick. You are unlikely to get the moon, but you may get a very serviceable stick, which is useful if you know that The Man is around. Additionally if you gather enough of them you can build a house of sticks, which is a much better way of getting a wolf come to your house than simply having a moon.
3. Ask the rain for its bespoke service. You may be able to get your own personal rainbow. Big rainclouds often have excess stock of rainbows, sundogs and other meteorological phenomena which are costly to store; they can be easily persuaded to offload some onto you. Be warned that they may throw in some extra-large hailstones as well, and wear a helmet if practicable.
4. Ask at any ice-cream van for the big ice-cream. The seller may try and fob you off with smaller ones; be insistent. You may have noticed that ice-cream vans have a subtle flap at the back which you will almost never see open. This flap is for dispensing the big icecream. You should bring along a wheelbarrow to catch it, or it may roll down the beach, injuring small children along the way, and end up grimly melting in the sea.
5. Several well-known fast-food restaurants have an occult menu. You can identify these establishments by a discreet smear of sauce on the upper right-hand corner of the standard menu. If you see it, feel free to ask! The occult menu is usually served in that room round the back and may feature esoteric delights such as zombie steak, orgone-infused tentacle and the dark in a bun.
6. Ask a tree for its autograph. It cannot say no, and in future times when we know everything the details may come out about its amazing past, at which point the autograph may be worth a mars bar or two.
7. Ask a stranger for the time. You see, interesting story, someone has stolen the time - not all of it, obviously, but about fifty thousand years - but under the terms of the agreement they made with the keykeeper they have to give it up if asked. So there’s a small chance the stranger could be the thief and even if you’re not sure where you’d store fifty thousand years it’s a useful thing to have.
8. Ask for a basement seat on the bus. Never noticed the stairs down? That’s because they are kept under a hatch to avoid alarming people who are concerned about things like continuity of space and the need for the bottom of the bus to be above rather than below the surface of the road. But for those in the know a trip in the bus basement is a fascinating experience, allowing you to peek into all sorts of sewers, vaults and cellars you would otherwise be unaware of.
9. Ask the doorkeeper for a paradox rather than a riddle. You may be able to induce the door into an infinite loop, allowing you passage to somewhere quite different.
10. Got a wolf at your house? Got a wind turbine? By now, you should know what to do.

A Paper Trail
There was a paper trail,
apparently from the night before.
Words spoken with a pen，
apparently expressing their desire.
Illegible font on scrunched up notepads,
apparently frustration unovercome.
There was a paper trail,
apparently ending a night of --
