Going Away Party

Iced cold night sipping and slipping away inside of a happily tended bar.

First time punk rock show for the first act. FinalΒ ska show for the finale.

Goodbyes and hellos echo in the crowded flow and as friends multiply like rabbits I can’t help but laugh.

In the center of the crowd the goodbye boy with brew in hand, sits and listens to his friend’s band.

No pretensions and no apprehensions I let my words go to do as they please.

Step outside and a friend takes a puff from her chocolate cigar, exhaling elation and crisp conversation.

It’s a good night, and it’s a goodbye to a friend with a one way ticket on his mind, and a girlfriend left behind.

Everything is fleeting.

She was a paper bag caught in hurricane hands

Rollers in her hair, defiant, proud

Thumping on ivory keys

She would make those dead elephants sing

While I sat in silence at her feet

The Walk Home

Caffeine junkie walks out of coffee shop

Slowly strolling he sniffs the corroded city air

Flourishing flower shop the boyΒ stops

Watch the blooming flowers blow in the breeze

Looking up the sunset of a drunken painter flourishes

Mad with colors and wild with cotton candy fluff that the child feasts upon

With hungry eyes he continues on

Looking for a home



10/26/2014 Writing Prompt: When the flow is interrupted

When the flow is interrupted my life becomes a stagnant river
Damned to hellish pressure
Building up and waiting to burst

When the flow is interrupted the blood in my veins cease to pump
Trapped in heart clogged confusion
Life stops.

When the flow is interrupted the tide no longer washes in and out
Bringing change
With each wave a breath of fresh air.

The Next Step

Hey everyone,

I know I’ve been away for a while, but I promise that i’ll be adding fresh poetry and tunes to my blog soon. In the meantime, check out my DJ mix for this month. It’s a blend of relaxing deep house that will get your head nodding.

Much love,

Don’t Miss This Remix

I have been searching and searching for a Coldplay remix that does the original justice and at long last I have found one that makes me ridiculously happy. I first heard it on Above & Beyond’s “Group Therapy” radio show, and was instantly hooked.Β The Disciples do an excellent job of creating a dreamy atmosphere in this track. Give it a listen and see if you like it as much as I do.Β I’ll be keeping my eye on the Disciples to see what they come up with next.

Friday Nights – 4th grade

It’s finally Friday! Quick, go call your mom and ask if I can sleepover! Man, the office is chilly in here. Oh, what’d she say? What?? Aw… That’s too bad I was really hoping I could-….Wait, why are you giving me that stupid smile? She said yes?? YES! Let’s go, let’s go!

You know a shortcut? Okay let’s take it. Are you sure we can get there over this mountain? Oh, I see the fence now. Are you sure we can fit through there?

Yes!! Finally home time to play some pokemon and… What’d you mean we have to do homework first? But she assigned us SO much to do. Okay, fine.

My hand is in so much pain from these exercises. Yeah I finished that one, what number are you on? Dang! How’d you finish so fast?? Uhh okay I’ll help you with dishes once we’re done.

Okay so first we play pokemon, then yugioh, and after that we’ll just make up a game. Alright I’ll draw the map and my character while you draw your guy. Now let’s write a story.

I love sleeping over. Your house is so much bigger than mine. I don’t know why you think your sister is so annoying..she’s actually kinda fun. And your mom’s food is so delicious.

I’m getting sleepy. Chris, you still up? Chris?……. Chris?……. chris???

What is this show? Breakfast smells so good. Sure, thanks. Do you wanna duel after we finish our food? Oooh Digimon is on!!!

Hi mom! Yeah, last night was good. I wish I could stay longer. This is my second home.
