Take note of this

My life serves mostly as an example of how not to live, how not to be. Communication only works between two parties with shared assumptions. When assumptions are divergent, there is only confusion, hurt, and anger.

But it doesn’t matter. Everything is essentially meaningless. It hasn’t mattered one bit in the past when people felt they were communicating with each other. It’s all trivial. Everything is trivial. My beliefs are trivial. And trivial is probably overestimating them. My beliefs will never be an answer on a Trivial Pursuit card.

That’s it. There is nothing more to say. If you want to be happy, don’t think or be like me at all. At all. I’m an asshole. I’m a dick.

Mute

Yesterday summer beat us
all back inside to gloom and shadows.
Night didn’t turn out

much better, we suffocated
even when stretched out naked
on a bed without blankets or sheets.

The west opened up some time
when you were dreaming about ghosts
who come back without permission.

There’s always a graveyard within
a mile or two. You just need to know
where to look, behind a church

or maybe underneath the large rock
with moss on the northern side.
Damp and cool, that is death.

I would like it so much if in a dream
I went to speak and morning glories
burst forth from my chest. What a story

for one who cannot speak. So today
the weather cooled, relief at last
with its dark and distant heart

beating underneath — winter comes soon.
The corn will fall and shrivel, the crows
will flee and there’ll be digging again

for funerals until the ground freezes.
When that is so, the gravestones will
shine with frost on a distant hill.
