What Price Knowledge ?
Information is not the same as knowledge.  Knowledge isn't just a matter of input, but of processing and analyzing that input, transforming it into meaningful and useful information, and that takes time to do correctly.  Consequently, one could believe the theory most of us are taught and conclude that we need to take in less information.  The theory states: "The more we learn paradoxically reduces our ability to know and understand more."  That is complete and utter nonsense.
However, our obsession with meaningless current events remains relentless. We're made to feel that at any point, somewhere on the globe, something may occur to sweep away old certainties, something that, if we failed to learn about it instantaneously, could leave us wholly unable to comprehend ourselves or our compatriots.  We are continuously challenged to discover new works of culture and yet, in the process, we don't allow any one of them to assume a weight in

The swerve
I tore my flesh on the corner of the lake & bled in cubes
and my best friend knew the weight of my green eyes and tried to sell them
and the spring left me heavy in my skin and the air she breathed me
tasted of umami and B12 and water. I drank it all in just like water
and began the aviary process of collecting budding groves and early springs.
you came to me with eyes like empty jars begging for sparks
and the hundred scraps of paper of pretty lies in pretty cursives,
the firefly wings and peonies and ocean salts and river rocks
and you were the first one capable of rustling the dead leaves
at the creek floor, so those went in, too. adding pensive things
to your eyes until they flooded over. they keep flowing
You were beside me trembling at being essential
and I could barely contain my laughter
from spilling into the air of the auroral forest
and getting caught naked in the mountains
The first time I didn't mean it to tear
through your skull and plant flowers
and you were beside me
:iconarchelyxs:archelyxs 47 47
Your honest words perch upon brash lips,
teetering on thoughtful intentions; a super hero's cape
embroidered with moth holes, gossamered secret identity
shielding the crestfallen heart you disguise as armor,
forgotten about with a forced amnesia
until its lonely beating rips a hole
through your defenses.
I'm your kryptonite and your sunshine—
the thing that makes you human, and weak,
and untouchable,
and mighty,
and a villain to the unloved,
and my savior.
I'm the have and have-not,
the desired and the disdained—
for your every rib aches to feel the pressure of my palms
and the tangle of my fingers witching for your marrow;
your every fiber argues my nearness and my absence,
and your heart murmurs a welcome and a warning.
You retreat from the latter,
because hope was never meant
for someone like you.
I've been wanting to tell you for so long,
your honesty is a lie.

Girl Wanted
I want a girl
who thinks
with her eyes closed
(in black and white)
and does not drink chamomile tea.
She does not watch movies
by Nicholas Sparks
and thinks God
really is Morgan Freeman
or someone she has not met
She reads Goethe, Sartre
and Salinger
and knows Orlando
is more than just
a city.
She wears plain white tees
and jeans so faded
her skin has lost its
and her shoes
chew the pavement
with real distinction.

I can see my warm breath in the chilly pre-dawn air.  It escapes from my mouth like puffs of steam from an old train.  I started this trek two hours earlier from my campsite 1,500 feet below next to the river.  Only darkness and a few stars accompanied me.  I followed the old trail that is no longer used by tourists or casual hikers.  It's steeper and dangerous in spots, but shorter if you're a sure-footed hiker.  I reached the summit, near the falls, 30 minutes before the sunrise.  In the pre-dawn light my eyes searched for signs of life but none were visible, though I knew I was being watched by hidden nocturnal creatures.  I set my pack on a large rock, pulled off my coat and wool sweater tossing them both on the pack.  I wear skin-tight black climbing shorts and a thin white cotton tank top, it's wet from sweat and clings to me like a second skin revealing pa

we stand a lot
as time passes
both heaven and hell
an image
begins to become
a reflection
with our bodies
less friend/more enemy
we find people
less acquaintance/more friend
though aging
we'll never give up
[at times
with a bit of help]
we won't only
we shall still
at least
i shall

So, while having play-time in your gallery, I see the option to critique this! And since you so foolishly encourage me, here we go: I l...


I'm a listener.

I'm around if anyone needs to talk about anything. I miss being active with you guys and a part of your lives, so any time anyone needs an ear - I'm around. And if I don't know you, you're still welcome to give me a shout. Everyone needs someone to talk to sometimes, and I never mind listening (or reading) anything. :heart:

Thank you.

I can't always keep up with proper thanks, but know that I do thank anyone who reads anything of mine. :heart:

Also, you're already welcome. So no need to thank me for a thing. (:

Hi, y'all. I've been so absent and I hate lacking the time to be here the way I'd like to be. Anyhow, I've got a lot going on, and I'd like to bring y'all in on some of it. Some of y'all know I'm on staff at cahoodaloodaling (if not, we're reading for Issue #19, and you're all invited to check us out and see if it's one you'd like to submit to) but I'm also working at Pankhearst and have been put in charge of editing an anthology. It'll be in print and e-book, folks, and it's going to be an excellent book if I have anything to say about it. What is it? Well, it will be an international collection titled America is not the World, and will consist of poetry and short fiction. It's not a negative theme, so if you submit, don't assume I want to read America-bashing. Opinions on the country are allowed, as is anything. Primarily, though, I want to collect voices from all over the world. Y'all are from everywhere and I've read so many incredible things here based on the idea of your homes. So, if you're interested in submitting or know others who would be, feel free to pass this around. All info can be found here.

Fiction writers! I'm not done with y'all. My boss, who happens to be a really amazing editor and a founding member of the collective, is compiling a separate anthology titled Life During Wartime, which I'm convinced will be a page-turner. Her own books are edgy and brilliant, and she knows how to put together a killer collection. Pass this info around to anyone who may be interested as well. Read up on what she's looking for here.

A quick note in advance: I'm expecting a lot of submissions and will have to be very selective, so please don't be bothered if I'm unable to accept your work. As a writer who has been submitting for a few years now, I know the sting of declines and get on average a couple of them weekly. They don't feel good, but look at it as practice. I believe in this community here, though, and would love to see some familiar names end up in the book. :heart:

I hope you're all doing well. I miss y'all! It's hard for me to get to messages, though I intend to, but I always check notes. I'm slow, but I get there. So if you have any questions, gimme a shout.

You're lovely. Wanna prove it?
