This is a place holder. I will expand the text on who I am but for now all you get is this IOU and a half hearted "Sorry"


It wasn't the sound of the train, The constant or consistent churn of it's measured gears, And careful path. It wasn't the idea of an operator I couldn't understand, With a path so plain before him, So much weight behind him, And so little to do. It wasn't the half kept business hovel, Occupied by landlords who kept their order, Of currency and obligation, Without the aesthetic to purchase dutiful faith, And a sense of obligation. But with tittle enough to sit in a filthy wheeled office chair, And crack a whip, Without raising a finger. It wasn't the cheap jug of drug store wine, Round and loving, Cradled by the fetus of my adulthood. Emptied by a child of the upright bearded forever-untill-never. It was the past-tense, Easy and painted up, Shinning like a new bike. It was the nonexistent, Ever present, Always fading, Never leaving. It was the unbrushed hair of childhood, Made to look intentional by backward eyes. It was true love in the classroom, Made to seem undying by the sound, And texture, Of a crumpled and miss spelled letter. It was the pocket hole in thrift store pants, For a dumb girl's hand, And an anxious boys cock. It was the lunch bell, That tore apart the most important conversation, That had ever been ended. But really it wasn't anything. Because it still is. And it will be. I still think one day I'll see the future.

Thank you for all your lovely comments! I am so busy at work crunching numbers I wonder why I ever went to LSE to do this work! I will definitely want to see what you created, so just bear with me till I finish with the madness @ work.

Corr, thanks so much for reading and your comments on my work on the lack of rain. I have been reading with alarm California's drought like conditions and Nestlé's attempts to privatize water. I love your comments, narcissistically, because they're so like mine ;)

Thanks Corr for reading and actually liking my work ! I meant to thank you earlier, but new manager, female, insecure and rather mannish. Hates me ;) Numbers are what I work with, menopausal women scare me more :0
Love your work, you have a down to earth quality about you and don't seem to pat yourself too much. Nor whine incessantly. Nor whinny
