Shouldering Heaven

And I was sad
and all the sadder guests at the garden wedding
were dancing
in their question-marked clothing

minds once sewn
with threads now unraveling
down to the roots
of dead trees.

Where are we that we are not home?
Where is home now that the world has turned black?

And you and all
and the gothic melancholy unconscious:
dancing dreams
across the closed eyes of danceless dreamers

a singular mind amidst
the lot of them all, all
down between the cracks and grooves
of dead streets.

Where are we that we are where?
When did nowhere scream “now here” out of the cold walls?

A moth
a melon
a veil
a villain

Set Timbre

Sadness setting

Cut to sadness begetting nightfall

and onward to sadness begot:

only befitting; the space between stars is obvious, but the spaces between spaces is how you continue to guide yourself home every night

to another night tucked but not stuck, and free to follow the fancies before you

before, you would just reach out and touch them, or whisper a slight, makeshift grin towards the upward-western sky

that always saw you. 

Now you dream askew - better than dreaming skewed, where the slanted world slips on its own icy surfaces; 

the surfaces where they’ll find you now awake, or find you non-waking in the colors rupturing their turbulence. 

The autumn respite:
a gray and grieving skyline
clutching to summer.

Weekly Movie Review: Hereditary (2018)

Zero: the amount of jump scares in this movie. Old school horror in in a new school setting. Shot beautifully - lighting and cinematography were flawless. Such disturbing imagery throughout without over-gorifying. Unexpected turns and lack of predictability were super refreshing. Would’ve liked a slightly better plot execution, buildup, and a tad more backstory, but otherwise, this highly anticipated movie did not disappoint me; finally something good to come out of the horror genre. 


8.5/10

Weekly Movie Review: Friend Request (2017)

Some of the death scenes were cool, the storyline was intriguing enough, but the acting was subpar and there was way too much over reliance on the jump scare.


3.5/10

Weekly Movie Review: Marrowbone (2017)

Great plot, well-acted, cast beautifully, intriguing storyline, gorgeous setting, decent twist, but lacked genuine scares. There were maybe 2 or 3 quasi-scary moments in the film, but ultimately fell short in the horror department. 6/10

Fictitious Capital

Driving across roads:
what are we; meandering
on this rock, alone.

Paper rain skips from paper clouds
in paper skies, but the paper flowers
never wilt and always smell like paper.

Sinking into our own private deaths
on Berber carpet - you’re sleeping in
a parking lot that’s still asleep.

Turning back time
after time has passed is a crumbling oak
tree across the street.

Crescent-moon soliloquy:
the book on the nightstand;
the stare from the stairs.

Seven yellows, six greens;
the rest is whatever will come
of your midnights

and no one will ever know who you are
when the sky ruptures.

Godric’s Hollow II

She’s unbound - stone deadbolts collapse in the monster’s nectary thunderstorm. In the monster’s nectary thundersnow there’s a wraith writhing beneath thirty motley crosses.
Beneath thirty motley crosses you and I have traveled ends and beginnings with wasted and neglected middles.
With wasted and neglected middles, thunderstorms of thundersnow envelop writhing wraiths and stone deadbolts shatter underfoot.
