weird coincidence

the life of david gale
capote

pure coincidence that i saw both movies last
weekend. weirder is the fact that david gale,
hickock and smith had requested strawberries
in their last meal.

subdivisions

sprawling on the fringes of the city
in geometric order
an insulated border
in between the bright lights
and the far unlit unknown

growing up it all seems so one-sided
opinions all provided
the future pre-decided
detached and subdivided
in the mass production zone

nowhere is the dreamer
or the misfit so alone

subdivisions ---
in the high school halls
in the shopping malls
conform or be cast out
subdivisions ---
in the basement bars
in the backs of cars
be cool or be cast out
any escape might help to smooth
the unattractive truth
but the suburbs have no charms to soothe
the restless dreams of youth

drawn like moths we drift into the city
the timeless old attraction
cruising for the action
lit up like a firefly
just to feel the living night

some will sell their dreams for small desires
or lose the race to rats
get caught in ticking traps
and start to dream of somewhere
to relax their restless flight

somewhere out of a memory
of lighted streets on quiet nights...

the moon felt the sun's warmth

why cant video games contain violence ?
arent they another form of expression like music
movies and books ?
do all the people who criticize games play them ?

sit

sit, drink your coffee here; your work can wait awhile.
you're twenty-six, and still have some life ahead.
no need for wit; just talk vacuities, and I'll
reciprocate in kind, or laugh at you instead.

the world is too opaque, distressing and profound.
this twenty minutes' rendezvous will make my day:
to sit here in the sun, with grackles all around,
staring with beady eyes, and you two feet away.

mother

last night i dreamt that i was the same boy that i had
been before my mother died. she sat in a room in a
garden house on the bank of the ganges. i carelessly
passed by without paying attention to her, when all
of a sudden it flashed through my mind with an
unutterable longing that my mother was there. at
once i stopped and went back to her and bowing low
touched her feet with my head. she held my hand,
looked into my face, and said: "you have come!"

in this great world we carelessly pass by the room
where mother sits. her storeroom is open when we
want our food, our bed is ready when we must sleep.
only that touch and that voice are wanting. we are
moving about, but never coming close to the personal
presence, to be held by the hand and greeted: "you
have come!"

crash

lucien: you watch the discovery channel?
anthony: not a lot.
anthony: they got some good shit on that channel!
lucien: every night there is a show with somebody
shining a blue light and finding tiny specks of blood
splattered on carpets and walls and ceiling fans,
bathroom fixtures and special-edition plastic burger
king tray cups. the next thing they show is some
stupid redneck in handcuffs who looks absolutely
stunned that this is happening to him. sometimes
the redneck is actually watching the discovery
channel when they break in to arrest him. and he
still can't figure out how on earth they could've
caught him!
[pauses]
lucien: do i look like i wanna be on the discovery
channel?
anthony: no.
lucien: then get the fuck outta my shop.
