The Scientist
I walk down the sterile aisles of periodicals and am castrated.
Become what so many dictators wanted, a mindful slave
Running my finger over the lifeless black bindings, emaciated
They are soft hair, skin, and countless souls we save
In air where love drowns despite the frantic panting of new lust
Somewhere near the education section past Foucault's mind
Absorbed by the hum of moving air, realities white static crust
Crystal thin and strong as steel to me so selectively blind.
Snap.  Brilliance, colour explodes through the hallowed halls
It dances with the minds and skins, coaxing them from eternity
Curling they embrace themselves with crackling, screeching calls
Writing away from this hallow place, this temple of modernity.
The smell of burning science is brilliant in the sky above
Every second, every moment, vibrant, violent love.

Listen -damn you-
Listen, you just might hear your heart breaking
That little moment like the crossing over
When your eyes finally close and the pain leaves
And you realize that its over, it's all over.
Listen, you just might hear your soul die
That crushing sensation when you know
When you just know that you've gone too far
And there is no turning back now, never.
Listen, you just might hear my tears fall
Between the sound of your footsteps
Running from a creation left to mourn
Its purposeless existence.

Personal Quote: "and hereafter is shadow"
Here I am in lovely Plattsburgh New York.  It's a quaint little town nestled next to lake Champlain and surrounded by the summer homes of people who only arrive in the summer when the capitalists let them out to play.  I'm feeling placeless here.  The town is a post Airforce base town so the locals are the very bottom of the barrel that stuck to it after any good reason to stay had left.  I've weasled my way into the only two art events this town has seen in a year and every interesting person told me to go somewhere else.

Ah well, at least there are lots of sad things to take pictures of here.  I'm going to use some of the money I've been given to buy a decent film camera and I think I'll spend my spare time going around taking pictures.  *crosses fingers* you know me, I get sidetracked all too easily.
