Big submission due today... [19 Oct 2005|12:34pm]

slideygrape
So I had a little fun with it.


cooking for one


corn husks slowly pile in heaps on the floor,
giving way to silk and sweet yellow,
and i surrender myself to this, shells surrounding me,
awakening with lazy eyes and a gentle warmth in my limbs,
my belly.
teased to reveal perfectly smooth tight skin, poured in hot water,
the warmth spreads, my brown orbs stretching wide and surprised.
every nerve ending plays connect the dots, creating a hungry misshapen
self portrait, straining at delicate edges, fighting to draw tighter.
stirred gently, buttered, the yellow begins to darken, the richness creates water ripples, and the portrait shrivels down to a single firm circle,
i am a bent spoon, unmoving, arched for undetermined amounts of time,
silently screaming as steam escapes from the stove pot. the whistle.

sweet, hot, yellow.
i can’t capture all the things i’ve just seen:
allen’s smile (in between kisses so many years ago),
the meteor shower in summer of 2001,
dali’s mae west installment (best viewed from the tower at the forefront of the room), the first leaves of crinkly autumn,
assaid spilling glitter across the kitchen floor,
the sea-dark that surrounds a boat at night.

i collect the silk and the piles of skin, tenderly, raw, and sweet.

Hey!
naked_city_fan. . .

After responding to your post on the most recent community entry, I perused your journal and I read an entry entitled "My AIM is True". I was interested in that, but my computer isn't really cooperating with me so I couldn't click your lj cut to what I can only imagine is the rest of your story. Would you mind posting it in here, sans cut?

Hi. I'm Rob, essentially, a bum teenager out of Rhode Island who thought this sight was the coolest thing since disco the moment I stumbled upon it yesterday.

That said, I'd thought I'd throw in something for your approval.

The Mangnet Poetry Challange [26 Apr 2005|04:41pm]

autumn006
[ mood | stoned ]

Here are the results of Matt hading me a box of magnet poetry words and letting me have at his fridge. I chalange other to try the same and share your results or if you don't have magnet poetry (which would be a shame), just pick words from the following sentinces since I used almost every word in the entire box and post your own poetic lines and rhymes. Mine fall into three categories...

1. EROTIC - garunteed to put a rise in your levis.

manipulate his tiney friend
I want you moaning, frantic and luscious with a woman's urge aching through your skin
drunk lust from bare skin
panting fast benieth my wet pink rose petal (that's one of my favorites)
heave my enormous sausage in a girl's butt
lick those feet as if he asked about a blow
shake it to the beat boy and say you want some easy play (almost rhymes)
hot wax over him would produce a cry so sordid it could leave shadows in bed (I read somewhere that after the Hiroshema attacks, the force from the bomb inprinted people's shadows to the wall)

2. PRETTY/FUNNY/GOOD - to put a spring in your step

milk chocolate is the sweet language
a gorgeous purple head trip vision
lie not my love, this delicate moment is true
a stil moon may white a sleepy void (I like this one too)
a lazy summer together will flood our winter
rock music pounding above a cool day
think like mist from a fluffy dream (i know, I know...)
mother's saggy breasts have taken to the wind (say it with a british accent, even funnier)
One shot of blue up and away, will hit like a car on a pole
thousands of diamonds spring with life as I trudge through the goddess garden (inspired by lucy in the sky)
the smell after an essential rain of the forest pleases like a gift
he who reads are none to ask (sounds like an old saying)

3. EVIL - not your diet coke version

mad timing has stopped her delirious chant (kinda Edgar Allen Poeish)
rusty knife rips the weak apart to sing screams full of death in the sky
the sum of your beauty is only a ship on a sea, you are repulsive to me (yay, I made it rhyme!)
cook my love bitter and raw like red meat
he uses power by some apparatus of robbing me until I fall (I was trying to use the word apparatus)
why place sad chains between us when we had the languid crush
watch as she drives a mean stare to get them gone, yet never lives like black iron
sit and drool to TV shine (what I'm about to go do...peace!)

If there are Romance Writers n this Group: [01 Mar 2005|03:59am]

anacondafelones
Romance writers are deadly serious about their writing. They sweat and bleed, swear and plead as they birth page after page after page and then somehow (this part's magic -- I can't explain it if you haven't experienced it for yourself) manage to pull it all together and produce a deeply moving love story. ~A Writer


I’ve been writing since I was a child, but recently I have been following up a dream of mine to becoming a published author. To achieve this goal, however, I realize there are a lot of little things that make up the big picture. Creating a tangible plot, forming believable characters, and having the stamina to finish what has been started.

Although I belong to a number of critique groups for various genres (_blueberrybagel is one I formed for original fiction of any genre), I noticed there really isn’t any for romance writers of any type…thus the reason for joining forces with (astutebunny to form one using bodice_ripper as a place for writers and even nonwriters who want to discuss gender issues. If romance is something you like to write, hope you may one day publish, and would like to be part of a critique circle while discussing the aspects of writing, please join.

So I tried to write a ghazal... [16 Feb 2005|01:25pm]

slideygrape
google "ghazal" and try to write one. it's fun, even though mine leaves something to be desired.

the night before last



resounding, rhythmic, glistening drops
plink down heavily, fat water drops.

the tension in his face melts, drops
he falls down, weeping, smiling, drops.

salt and acid mix, forming sky drops
chemical cloudbursts matching eye drops.

i watch from the window, big heavy drops
pouring from my eyes; puddles make splash drops.

stomping in puddles, he smiles, tiny lake drops
he falls to his knees, eyes heavenward, the earth stops.

a chocolate haired girl has just witnessed soul drops
a humbling cloudburst, faceburst; wet drops.

i dont know how long its been since ive written... [12 Feb 2005|12:47pm]

defyapathy
a short story with a valentine's theme.



He jangled the change in his pocket with one hand while fingering the cellophane of the twin saltine package with two fingers of the other. Free crackers with soup was some kind of unwritten culinary law, and he wondered how many people actually ever ate them. They tasted like sawdust to him. But then, so did most things lately.

She was twisting a curl as she eyed his belt, brown and dearly worn. He was a small man and quiet, dark lock of hair falling over the one eye almost as if on purpose. Soft features, pale, a kewpie in an olive jacket.

It was not until he heard her repeating Could you pass the salt? that he noticed her. He turned his head and his large eyes took in her mass of red hair, the paisley scarf that half restrained it, a nose both pert and freckled, the little lines at the corner of her pink questioning smile. He passed the salt with a nod and half smile. I do like salt, she said, on 'most anything. Pepper too. And salsa? You get me near a bowl, its half gone before the chips are scarcely touched. Yeah, I’m a girl who loves her condiments. He sensed her pratter was from nervousness and a desire to somehow breach the silence between, however awkward the attempt. So where are you from? she finally found the point she had been circling.

Not here, he replied. Back east aways. I’m just passing through. End it there, he thought, but surged instead forward- You?

Oh I’m a local. I just like to haunt this particular joint. Food is good and sometimes you meet an interesting traveler or two.

He wondered if she was a prostitute. She didn’t look it but you never knew. Born and raised here? he asked.

Yeah, she laughed a little, (embarrassed?) well I always meant to get out of here, college and all, you know, but life as a way of making those decisions for you (yes, definitely embarrassed. She feels smalltown and plain and desires to come across as otherwise).

He agreed that it did.

She cleared her throat and commented, you’ve barely touched your soup.

He set the spoon back down, just now aware he had been absently toying with it. Oh, its fine, I just haven’t much of an appetite.

If you’d like some fries, help yourself she gestured to her plate.

Offering food from her plate. God she was precious. So how old are you… hey, come to think of it, I don’t believe I caught your name

Oh, I’m sorry! So sorry, I’m Shelley, and I’m 22 well, you know.

Married?

Was. Not no more. I don’t stand for a man whos' get rowdy and don’t respect his woman. And I don’t stand for a man who loves his drink so.

That’s good. You shouldn’t. No woman should.

They were quiet.

Any children?

Two beautiful boys, one five and the other’n just barely one, they’re my pride and joy. Niece is watching them for the night, thought I would take an evening to just come and get some coffee and relax myself, I spent all day painting the outside of the house touching up the trim and whatnot and I’m darn near tuckered out, it was fiercesome hot out today.

Yes, still is, he said, noticing the bit of sweat collecting at his own brow.

More silence passed between them. The woman, a girl yet, really, was examining her fingernails with a sharp intensity.

Fancy a walk? She ventured. I imagine you haven’t seen much yet of the town. Not that there’s much to see, heh.

He thought for a moment, his throat growing tight. That I would, he said, and took her arm Like a real gentleman she thought.

She took him around the few main streets and indicated the places to eat and not to eat, which shops had the best wares and which were tawdry trinkets with inflated prices meant for tourists. She filled his ears with simple tales of country happenings and made his grave countenance twist into a smile more than once.

The sun was setting as they meandered along a trail through a field of wild grass and queen anne’s lace. …and back here's about where I live. Silence. I suppose I should be getting home, now, its getting late and...her head was turned away but as she trailed off she turned it back, looked up at him with clear blue eyes and reached upwards with her slender neck to place her lips to his.

The soup spoon pierced her temple just where he intended. He gave it a good twist before he let her fall.

He walked away calmly, jangling the change in his pocket with one hand. Tossed, carelessly, the packet of saltines into the weeds.

Darling


My sweet, my love --
What have you done?

With sinful sour hate
you have filled my soul.
I have melted from
your tower of light
into a ebbing pool
and flowing disdain.

What is this that breaks us,
what came upon our hour?

Who are they that tainted me,
why have you painted me
with tears and messy mascara.

A board game that couldn't exist. [17 Nov 2004|12:18am]

group_of_idiots
[ mood | dismal ]

House Rules

Disclaimer No. 8: no unauthorized or "house" rules allowed, as it may cause mass chaos in perpetuity throughout the universe.

  • All players must start in the middle of the board and either advance to the beginning or regress to the end.
  • Deciding who moves first will be based on the length of each player's hair (from the crown of the head). The player with the shortest hair moves first. If one player is completely bald, they automatically lose, exempt only if they have a beard at least four inches in length or more, in which case they move third. If two players have exactly the same length hair, their placement is therefore detemined by a duel to the death using the large hand axes included in the game. The player to live moves second.
  • This game is intended to ONLY be played on the ceiling. Caution--! do not attempt to play near ceiling fans or outdoors. There are two exeptions to this rule: game may be played on the floor only if in outer space, or the inner depths of the earth.
  • Landing on the "LOSE ONE TURN" square entitles the player to move twice the next turn.
  • Landing on the "ROLL AGAIN" square causes the player to your direct left to sponataneously combust, or if in Madrid, Spain, freeze to death at absolute zero temperatures.
  • Rolling a seventeen(17) is a class B misdemeanor; rolling a six(6) is a level two(2) felony in Massachusetts, Delaware, Wyoming and Florida; rolling a negative four(-4) (as some sides of the dice have negative numbers) will surely get you deported to Brazil in three (3) days time. (Note: Pack well and bring a toothbrush. You may also consider a pillow and a snack for the plane ride. Summers can be extremely cruel so pack a dehumidifier, and light clothes. We recomend brown corduroy shorts and t-shirts. No pets, siblings or kin permitted.)
  • first player to lose automatically wins.
  • Players not obeying all the rules to the full extent are subject to being considered smarter than the other players and so may therefore forfiet their turn in order to do something more productive in the world.

Disclaimer No. 19:(censors added by orders as a precaution to national safety and homeland security.) This game contains vital subliminal information including documents as well as audio and visual tapes concerning --------------certain recent wars---------involving------------------------to maintain plausable deniability, as well as propoganda supporting the FBI's connection to---------------. This can be achieved by------------, using the dice roll a----,then----------to the-----green square. Caution, this information is extremely confidential and should not be told to anyone untrustworthy or under federal suspicion. 

These rules are merely a guideline. Feel free to make up any house rules you see fit along the way. The goal here is fun! Remember, it's only a game.

E=Fb (musical science) [12 Nov 2004|12:11pm]

[ mood | exanimate ]

I went to Royal Oak to read. I got a tea and I started reading on the corner, and all those people, you know the ones, they were there. All the people I don't know, with pink and red and blue hair. Most of them trashed.. All of them talking about getting trashed. And some older guys, some homeless. Kim, who as always had an innocent bottle of juice with some kind of alcohol in it. In her other hand a freshly lit cigarette. Some guys in a Hummer drove by and I swear, I'm not kidding or exaggerating, they had thirteen televisions inside. Three on each visor, one in the middle, where the rearview mirror should have been, a few on the backs of all the seats, a few hanging from the roof. An even bigger "Fuck you" to poor people than getting a sheet of real gold to eat with your desert at fancy restaurants.

Not surprisingly, I once again got asked if I could hook some people up with some drugs. I learned the best thing to do in that situation is ignore the person. Fuck them if they want to judge me on my dreadlocks and Salvation Army clothes.

The hummer passed by a second time.

And I was talking to Kim. She'd been reading my journal about how I was saving money to move someday. She drank more from her blue alcohol drink, in it's Hawaiian Punch "bodacious berry" bottle. And smoke swirled around her.

A little later, a blond young guy came to the corner with his guitar. He could play pretty well, and his voice was okay, at best. Another guy, an old guy, came over and played a recorder with him for a while. The Hummer passed by a third time, all the TVs glowing. The guys inside, they were twenty four at the oldest.

The recorder guy was bad. It was random and choppy, and kept coming back to the same note--the wrong note--every few seconds. He apparently only knew one key, and at the time it was about an augmented fifth away from what the guitar guy was playing. The notes resonated painfully, the waves not at all meshing. But I ignore it all and I’m reading and I have my tea.

And for the fourth time, I've got a red Hummer with chrome wheels and thirteen TVs inside. They're just circling the block. That's how cool the Hummer with TVs is. They got the money for this from their parents or from drugs or black mail or something. Without being prejudice or stereotypical, I can say beyond all doubt that they did not get it from real, manual labor work like working for a company or business or stock markets or selling goods.

The song ends and I go over. There's a small crowd around. I talk to the guitar guy and mention that I play elec. violin. His eyes light up. He's been looking for an elec. violinist for like four years, dude. Seriously, he's interested. So Hi, I'm Damien. And Hi, I'm Johnny. And he took my number and said really, seriously, he's gonna call. But I’ve heard people say it like that before. I know I won’t hear from him again. And a red flash went by on the road followed by thirteen little glows.

Then suddenly there were only about four people on the corner, not counting two police officers. "Bye Lupo, I'm gonna go drive around." and Kim was gone with her little bottle of neon blue poison. The guy with the guitar left too, only more innocently than most of the others; he had a show to get to. I went to the cops and said, watch this hummer coming down the street, isn't that illegal?

Damn, he said. Look at that shit, he said. That's a lot of TVs...uh, yeah, that's illegal. Any time the driver has one in front of his view, yeah it's illegal. And he went back talking to a shirtless punk and a kid with a skateboard. And I read a few pages and I left for home.

On the way down the street, I stopped at a red light, next to the Hummer. I yelled out my window, whatcha watching in there anyway? Fuck you, one of the guys said. And I said, okay then. And I stayed cool and just thought, maybe they'll get a ticket. Or into an accident. Or maybe they'll get their Hummer stolen. Or blown up by the mafia. Or something.

(I just joined. Hi everyone.)

belly button [25 Oct 2004|08:38pm]

[ mood | content ]

You know that feeling.

The one that starts in your chest- a tightness pressing against your ribs, your breastbone. It's not a fluttering, or a pattering, just a constant push, like your heart doesn't have enough space to hold your feelings. While you worry about your bones breaking and your skin bursting open to accomodate the pure white light inside of your abdomniopelvic cavity, that sensation lessens. It slides up your throat in the form of a lump. The teary eyed lump, where you know there's nothing to cry about but if you open your mouth to release the thoughts trapped in your cheeks your face will suddenly be wet with salty passion, you'll be left gasping for breath as though plunged under a wave during high tide in the Pacific. Before you know it, it's coming for your eyes. They cannot be closed, for fear that the water gathering in your eyelashes will be unleashed in a frenzy, a torrential storm which will allow no survivors. In your shellshocked state, eyes wide as saucers; the white light, no longer threatening to burst out of your chest, is pouring from your eyes.

You realize you don't have to speak- everything that you could ever say is shining out of your face. The tears come anyway, tears of relief and gratitude, rivulets of love sliding down your cheeks. Those tears are the most beautiful form of self expression you could ever give the world. You don't have to paint a mural, or build a hospital, or write a book; this is the culmination of everything you've ever wanted. As you leak passion from every pore of your face, it becomes easy to write a book, to change the world.

Looking up at the light through a curtain of salty water and curled eyelashes, you've unlocked every secret the world has ever locked away.



This is honestly nothing, I was just trying to capture how I felt last night. Please tell me if it makes sense, and if you feel like it, try to write about a feeling. I doubt I'll use this exact text for anything, but I want to know what you guys think because I'm sure I'll want a character to feel this way in one of my stories. Blah blah, sorry I haven't posted in a while, I haven't been writing as much as I like to. I look forward to hearing more from you cats and kittens.

I had a dream
about a little girl named Josephine

She has big blue-green eyes
and dark brown spring curls in two pink bows,
freckles dotted across her nose.

She walked over to me toes turned outwards
the way I use to waddle when I was little.
Then she fell backwards.
"Uh-oh," I said, playfully,
but she just giggled at me and said,
"Mommy, you're silly."

Lonely

I feel like
I can’t pile on enough blankets at night,
to melt the ice droplets resting in place,
the space beneath my eyes.

I search for a warmth
to thaw this frostbitten face.
My skin is chilled numb
crying out to be touched.
My lips long to taste.

I rest upon the hearth, alone,
try to catch a soothing heat.
My nerves regain their feeling.
the tears melt and trail down my cheeks,
but
My face is still it's colorless white
my blood is still ice
splintering under the skin.
My bones are frozen,
brittle, like winter twigs.

Pound

I'm chasing you through night time wonder,
forcing you to think of me and what could be.
Screaming at your heals, tripping you.
I love you, I do, and I want to make you see.
I will, I will run after you and pound it in your skull.
You are just blind, i know how you feel.
You cannot deny, you cannot appeal.
If you say you don't want me you're a liar.
If you say you do, you're a liar.
Chasing you, trying to force my thoughts in you head.
Stop hiding how you feel with lies.
You don't even know what love is,
so how can you say we aren't in it.
I know we are i smell it.
You're cold sweat, your fear, i know whats behind your eyes.
Stop trying to tell me know.
I'll chase you till you fall,
chase you till i'm all.
I'll pound it in you skull.
When you don't love me,
I'll make you.
When you do,
I'll hate you.
Because it goes my way, I don't care what you say.
You never will be loved by anyone else anyway.
So why even try to run, everyone else is behind me.
I'll pound it into your soul.

Write a story about compulsive behavior.

I'm not giving you any further ideas, because I think this can go a lot of different ways and I'm excited to see how it plays out. I'll put up my compulsive behavior story by Thursday or Friday at the latest.

shadesof_blue
I figured i post something in this. Its just something I wrote when I was bored a long time ago. Sorry for the mispelled words.... It might not be that good but its ok..........


It was a cold, dreary night. Signs of a thunderstorm were everywhere. Gray clouds closed in on the ocean blue sky, like an animal closes in on its prey. As the dark sky consumed the earth, the trees rocked back and forth. Leaning so far down, they were only inches away from touching the ground. The wind hit them swiftly and fiercely, breaking hte trees branches and scattering its fall colored leaves throughout the rough ground. The smell of rain was in the air, but no one could have been prepared for what was soon going to hit them. Just before the first drop broke through the storm covered clouds, a flock of startled birds flew up into the sky. With the fear of a small child who had just seen its worst nightmare in their eyes, the birds flew quickly off into th nights sky.
Within minutes later, a bomb exploded in the unsteady clouds. Cold rain drops burst through the clouds; crashing upon the ground like a stamped of angry bulls. AFter each new drop of rain came another, hitting the now damp and muddy ground harder and even harder then the last. Thunder shook the earth, as lightning struck the unprepared ground. While the earth shook from the thunder, the ground rumbled each teim ethe lightning struck it. Every flash of ligtning lit up the sky.
Then the wind began to pick up to a faster speed, like a race car trying to finish its race. Everything was beign blown in different directions and the gray clouds were getting darker by the minute. On a corner of a street, a red, breat up stop sign was torn out of the ground and thrown agressivly onto a nearby lawan. Screen doors were beign swung open, as everyone ran to take cover in their homes. Just as the last door was slammed shut a large funnel appeared out of the nights sky. It raced along hte stree, thwoning cars, trash, and trees in every direction. It swiftly crashed upon house by house, bulldozing them into the ground. Pieces of all the houses were thrown around, smashing into anything blocking its way. The street was being torn apart as the most firece storm became worse and worse. Soon the city would just be a memory , a dream taht people once knew as reality. The hopes and dreams of these people were being crushed like they had never meant anything to anyone.
The funnel was moving faster and faster, as rain hit the ground so hard it bounced righ back up. Rain was consuming the ground and the earth, filling the streets and the sewers till they began to overflow. LIghtning began strigking the trees and they came crashing down to the ground with a loud *thud* that could be heard from iles away.
The storm raged though the night until the early morning. As it slowly began to settle down, the gray skies began to fade away, letting shine through the bright suna nd deepest of blue sky. Rain drops dripped form what was left of the shattered city and flowed into the sewers that still remained. The sky glowed like it had just been reborn. REady to stat from teh beginning people came out of hiding to rebuild again what they not long ago once had in the palm of their hands. AS they looked up in awe, a brightly colored rainbow stretched across the reborn sky.
