Truganini Returns

Thoughts of lust flow like water and blood winks and slaps against the tide. I can’t even out what or weather patterns are signs of stability and instability. The paradox of instability and stability. Experience is split so that is can exist. Everything is the same as nothing. Aum. I breathe deep, close my eyes, […]

Found Ruby Virchow

Genesis, Chapter 6

Before the Glaciers Melt Humans spread from the savannas they crafted themselves to thrive in, and crafted themselves ways to thrive across the Earth. Where it was cold, they made clothes. Where the weather was hard, they build tents. They found places where water hid from the sun, and devised skins to keep it with […]

Favors for Mimeogiraffe

He’s making me sound desperate. I protest. “It’s not that big of a deal.” John August smokes dried leaves of some plant. It’s weird because we’re inside. His club. His rules. He’s good with loopholes, and the latest fad is more rules, which just gives him more to knit with. He blows the smoke out […]

Genesis, Chapter 5

Generation Gaps Eve and Adam took turns trying to get power over the other, and since Adam got the upper hand more, he would tell anyone who would listen (which were many) and understand (which were few) that God clearly meant for man to rule. The first son also murdered the first daughter, so things […]

Genesis, Chapter 4

Sex and Human Ignorance Just talking and eating and sleeping quickly got boring. When they discovered pleasure with their own and each others bodies, they didn’t do anything else for a long time. After a few months, they noticed Eve’s belly was starting to grow larger: muscles, fat, and skin being stretched. Something was growing […]

Genesis, Chapter 3

The Team Grifter: Eve, aka “Life”; talked “The Serpent” into helping; fastest animal on two legs; hoping to use Knowledge to master Life. Scout: Adam, aka “God’s Son”; found the path to the tree; good with names; hoping to use Knowledge to master Humanity. Healer: Steve, aka “Embrace”; knew of the fruit of Knowledge; expert […]

God of Evolution and Hate

I heard one of Your lost preachers. Trapped in your web. Shouting simple answers to complex people. People mostly ignored him. They would walk past, shaking their heads with a smile, accepting the moment, or even chuckling. Next he was condemning the God of Evolution and what It’s told him. I’m standing there, thinking, “Dude, […]

Genesis, Chapter 2

A Second Genesis So, that’s one way to look at it. But there is not just one way of looking at anything, especially not the origins of the cosmos, of life, of God. Reality is too complex for there to only be one way to see, to live, to experience. Looking is frustratingly complex and […]

The Grouchy Old Oak

I try to keep the song low. It’s after dark, so the only people around are drunk on ostracism. Not a big risk. Still. I like to keep a low profile. So I keep muttering, looking up at Oak in Frank Ogawa Plaza. Now fenced in. Imprisoned. The only person who wouldn’t disperse when the […]
