dream


Last night i had this dream that i was stranded at a train station. Funny- though cause my mom came to the rescue and which was bizarrely odd. :-)
odd nostalgia - i wonder what this means.

Council with the Oblameji



this is one of my favorite masks from yoruba tribe rituals.

Dorkish little poems and doodles.

I once knew a hedgehog
brushed his beard of prickly quills
and layed soft skin to his heart and underside.

Inside i felt a tired dismal spark
of something to be desired
yet longing to be ignited

I soaked his quills in oils
and did not let him speak
had his edges burned in my fires of truth.

Finally his shell opened up to me.
what i found was quite something else.
whatever heart, spirit or soul
had left this cursed corpse long ago

In trying to strip him of his quills, i took his life
and all that was left was something clean-
without sin, without flaw- but also
without life.
