Nineteenth Small Stone: these long moving things"

seventeenth small stone

Today was so crazy and full between creative work, creative play and enjoying life with the wife, that I had no time to write and now it's an hour to bedtime, and I'm in no mood. But I found this passage from a recent but "closed" notebook which will be my stone for the day because I love the style of it. It's wild on purpose, cosmic, large scale, surreal and full of play.



We're 2 Swiss Army Knife, Kali-armed 
   space ship tornado sparks
meeting in the fiddle-head fern tendril
   trajectory of a polka on Mars.
We hook together by our Sousaphone necks
and whip cut-time parabolic arcs,
trading trans-oceanic stun rays——and all this
before lunching on dinosaurs.

Thirteenth small stone

Halle Berry; Abraham Lincoln;
the guy giving me the finger
from behind his steering wheel,
face a suddentwist of rage; and I
all have this in common: as infants,
we sat in our own excrement.
We've all done that.

Twelfth small stone

Starstruck.
Ze Frank greets me like an old friend, though.
Embrace.
The way I guffaw sounds coarse in my own ears.

Hey, by the way, what is this "small stone" thing?

Mindful writing: finding a moment of clarity and present awareness each day, and commemorating it with a small piece of writing. Nearly a week in, I'm quite taken by this quite beautiful process/project.
