all his stuff is damn good, but capricorn is simultaneously one of his mellowest and most riveting.

"Survival, with honor, that outmoded and all-important word, is as difficult as ever and as all-important to a writer. Those who do not last are always more beloved since no one has to see them in their long, dull, unrelenting, no-quarter-given-and-no-quarter-received fights that they make to do something as they believe it should be done before they die. Those who die or quit early and easy and with every good reason are preferred because they are understandable and human. Failure and well-disguised cowardice are more human and more beloved."

i printed out my ministers credentials again and am now dedicated to starting a church. the holy trinity of this church shall be as follows;


and the sacred combination of the three shalt be our mass.

who wants in?

-reverend chris

addendum - with the aid of a fellow minister the first of our holy days has been established. the beginning of the celebration in honor of saint lebowitz shall fall upon july 1st. on this day kites shall be purchased (cheaply) along with fireworks (in tijuana) and large quantities of beer. for 4 days following this date, all of these sacraments may be enjoyed. however, they may not be enjoyed the three together. not until july 5th shalt all the holy sacraments be combined in the joyous celebration of life, death, rebirth, beer, eternity, rapture, poetry, baths in the afternoon, coffee, garden gnomes, serenity, warmth, blue skies, slow enamored gazes, polaroids, curious george, dancing, autumn, startled smiles and bay windows.

not quite a secret [Jan. 5th, 2005|09:12 pm]

when it rains
your eyes can sometimes
be seen
wide eyed and luminescent
wetly shining
like you're about to cry
then i blink
and they disappear

the table in the corner would be occupied by an older woman who'd stop me everytime i walked by on my way to the ice machine, or to get cigarettes, or to get condoms and ask me, holding up an empty mcdonalds cup, why her drink didn't have one of those miniature umbrellas in it.  and i'd look around at the drab surroundings and the other listless occupants of the motel and wonder why, out of all of them, she decided i was the cabana boy. 

i'd tell her we'd run out, but i'd be back soon with more.

my cabana boy customer service award is still in the mail, too.

[music |datathief - bandwidth]

not often, but sometimes, it's wonderful to stay completely alone on a grey grey day.  the kind where the sea and sky embrace and color each the same sort of gunmetal hue.  when you turn into the wind coming off the beach and it makes your eyes water, and you put up your collar, cigarette smoke whisked away as hair is blown into your eyes and you sit down to write lines like
"because you leave before the sun can even bear to be seen, the flowers are more like an unnoticed gesture.  a wave goodbye after the car turns the corner, a bless-you the day after a sneeze, silly thing to do, those flowers in the dark..."
