you not wanting me was the beginning of me wanting myself thank you

When you start seeing your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t.

Glass Table:

~Greg Thweatt:  Distraction

~

Cell phones, a drink, games, maybe music, bright lights, dim corners, flickering screens, a napkin, melting ice cubes … so many distractions, how can we know what is real versus that which is numbing or fantasy?

“Tottering between …”

This painting attempts to capture the ways we totter between distractions and the interactions with our world. Typically we see distractions as negative, a diversion or interference. I believe that distractions can also help when in pain or unsettled, if used with intention versus without thought.

“Stop!”

The struggle is to know when we are being intentional instead of becoming lost in
avoidance. Maybe it as easy as stopping,
looking up, listening (even if there is no sound) and being gentle with ourselves.

Prewritten:   feud, tiptoe

~BarTalk:
She Me They We

She
Dances en pointe feline grace on tiptoe
Me
Feudin’ cousin of the ribbity rabbity tap dance
They
Choose music either nightingale or raucous crow
We
Refuse the ruse of witty talk versus flash romance
Grabs a number and takes our chance

the climb to fly

snowshoe up mountain top
climb to the tip
toes to the edge
bungee jump

le feu d’amour
the fire of love
is like that

5-7-5 x 6

tiptoe to the edge
was it cut with fentanyl
parents feud whose fault
~
cruel crawl thru pig mud
or tiptoe home together
defuse this old feud
~
piled high thunderheads
age old feud ‘tween weather fronts
tiptoe thru the rain
~
tap dance on tiptoe
magnetized emotions feud
dare to call it love
~
feuds felt in the gut
tiptoe thru relationships
reenlist, again
~
civil war of self
feuding man in the mirror
tiptoes between them

Quoted In The Grove:
The kinds of roles dogs fill can be hard to come by in human relationships. We touch the dog or the pet at whim. There is a lack of self-consciousness and a fluidity to it that is absent from most human relationships.
~Caroline Knapp

Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.
~Thornton Wilder

When there are dogs and music, people have a good time.
~Emmylou Harris

EndQuote:
There’s more to a person than whether or not they like dogs.

Prewritten:  phantasm, lichen

~BarTalk
Neighbors

Old scrub oaks lichen scaled
There’s a family nearby
Good folk I visit often
Their phantasms odd to us
Bury their dead above ground

~

Recipe #4

Times before I fancied love
Transmogrified phantasm
But magic mushroom potions prove
As a conjurer of passion
Less success in market tests
The failed attempt most striking
Plugged lichen soup for liking

~

Who Was Caught

Who was caught rockin’ rocking to the beat
Who was that playin’ making happy feet
Who was heard singin’ creating phantasies
Who was famous for composing musical mysteries
Is now decomposing ‘neath a lichen shrouded tree

~

Besties

Dog’s my best heaven-sent
But having Elephant as my friend
Forever fact without lament
Liken both as true and one to the end

~

tastes of wood, lichen
eat for health friend phantom said
to this day I do
