you are a brilliant orange tree
coming up on me,
taking my breath away.

sometimes there are

at the drop of a hat

don’t get any ideas

we ride at dawn
a m a n d a Jun 16

through green meadows
and orange haze,
hooves thundering
manes in the wind.

i don't like the word evil.
it is removed,
there is no evil.
there are only men.
wrong thinking,
wrong actions,
and ineffective systems.
we cannot fix evil.
but the shape of society
is up to us.
we are responsible
for the growth or destruction
of our minds.

create the space
a m a n d a Apr 20
in a time like this time,
when it appears
you have been plunged
into a winter
that will never end,

when winds howl
and shake your foundation,
sleet drives itself down
and everywhere you
look appears bleak,

know the beginning
is around the corner.
the sun will not fail you.
flowers are pushing their way
above the ground,
and new life
is about to emerge.

this is true,
both within the earth,
and within your mind.
seek it
and you will
find it.

Staple Lord
a m a n d a Apr 6
And you may ask yourself, "How did I get here?"
And you may ask yourself, "Where is that shiny automobile?"

And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful house"
And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful face"

And when the task before you
is thousands of files,
staple - on staple - on staple
You bite that bullet,
Staple Lord.

With every fiber of your being,
you hunt them down
and wrangle them out
like you were born for the thing;
because you are alive and
it's the task before you.

you tear dem ******* out like
it's your Sistine Chapel.

do all things this way
nothing is wasted.

the light of your attention
reflecting back on you.

when switzerland isn't switzerland,
the least you can do is pause.


and this feels different,
because it is different.


and when you fight,
i fight.


because if you fall,
i fall.


this is how it has always been,
and how it m u s t be.

what does it mean
when you realize you
have been trained for
over a decade on how to
respond to an active shooter
via your exposure
to the realm
of educating children?

what does it mean
to know all
the actions one would take
in any building
with any variety
of construction,
or number of people
all with varying degrees
of physical ability?

to know the defenses
the tricks
the tape
the block
the quiet voice
of strength?
the look in the eyes
of control?

the everyday objects that
would make a good weapon.

what does it mean
to know exactly how many children
can fit in the closet?


what does it mean
to know that HERE?

IN THE ****
does that mean?

imaginary race car proposal
a m a n d a Oct 2021
this dope ***
bright red yellow pink sun
in the rearview.
an energy, without doubt.
while she sings
"don't hurt yourself"
and i decide
i will try harder
not to,
and that i only want
the imaginary brand new
futuristic race car
if i can have it
with complete abandon -
sure in the knowledge
that it could be crumpled
and imperfect in minutes -
a loss a loss a loss.

i would only want it
if i could truly accept its destruction
the cryptic length of
enjoyment without worry.
then i could
race that machine
be that machine
love that m a c h i n e
