The process of nocturnal migration, stumbling blind,
wary of grasslands and predators stalking.
Feelings of being stalked can cause you agoraphobia and
social anxiety, the need to hide or to exercise uncontrollably
until your body-fat dips so low, you’re fainting all over town;
fainting in lectures, in traffic, at the bar, fainting at bookstores
as your body slams into the girl with the long skirt
and the hardcover copy of One Hundred Years of Solitude
you were holding makes a purple ruin of her big toe.
She drinks gross supermarket wine for the pain;
she drinks gross supermarket wine all the time—
and eats nothing but raw hot-dogs after dark.
Feeding during the day is another advantage
nocturnal migrants have—as it is preventing potential overheating,
and you know nothing is hotter than
raw hot-dog flavored kisses in idiotically clichéd places like
the laundromat or the cemetery.
Crows and ravens don’t spend their lives in cemeteries,
they’re actually notable short-distance migrants. Yet the ancient
believed them to be minor deities, holy messengers,
traveling through spiritual realms and the ages of men.
In fact, they do migrate back and forth future and past,
delivering cosmic tidings ensconced  in velvety gloom;
they stop at your window to tell your eight-year-old self
that a food stinking drunk will stomp on your heart ten years later.
Of course you don’t listen, you are too busy cowering
pathetically under the covers.

I loved that piece. And I disagree when you say it's "useless" because "it makes no sense." On the contrary, my favorite poems make no sense of the surface, which is basically saying that the poem can't be paraphrased. However, as a reader we connect with the emotional side of it - a deeper connection than just the logical I think.

Anyway, I missed being around. I've been teaching English as a second language in south america, and it's always hard to get wifi where I was Staying. You've submitted so much stuff since the last time I checked, I need some time to catch up.

Oh dear... I am beyond happy to hear you've found something to like in this piece of mine. Though I find it hard to see any quality in it, your words are very comforting. Thank you. :huggle:

You've told me of your new job. But know that we missed you too! :heart:
If you read any of my new works, please excuse the fact that I haven't really grown as a creator... No, I disagree!  I'm moving at a slow pace.

Well I disagree again, I read Pre-cognation, Searching and Wandering - and I really enjoyed them. I can tell you're pieces flow a bit a better. I particularly like the voice in Searching, it has that sincere tenuousness similar to the Victorian romantic movement.   I'll See if I can finish catching up your stuff by the weekend. You are very prolific.

no worries; that was an amazing shot. Moving objects with sharp focus are never easy to pull off.
