scattered diamonds

H.M. Nolan

The moon scattered diamonds

across the ocean

it twinkled and winked on the tippy-tops of waves

and becomelost inside

her ravenous froth.

I play this dream

in reverse, don’t you know?

Love is the deepest

rabbit hole.

The Unpredictable Predictable

Wonderful poetics from Wade Lancaster.

Wade Lancaster

time exposed city

Your text entered into my eyes and rattled around like razor blades in my mind.

You Will Never Know The Book Of Life By Starting In The Middle

Fixing machines are predictable.
The solutions are always the same.
There is only so many causes.
This is what makes them predictable.
Fixing people are complicated.
The solutions are never the same.
There are to many causes.
This is what makes people unpredictable.

You love the feel of the machine.
The way it lets you control it.
How well you can predict it.
But you don’t know what makes it tick.
You hate the way people make you feel.
The way they control you.
How well they predict you.
But you know what makes them tick.

There is madness shared by two. (Folie a deux)
You are the human machine.
Some claim they have the solution.
There are only so many causes.

flutter in the wind
