thirteen days without writing and finally something is slowly coming. Wrapped myself in professionalism only to realise, again, a job is good only if it allows me to live. By live, I mean write and think and dream. In other words lose my mind. A good stream of books words thoughts. Teaching EFL can deaden my awareness. Or strip it. I am not sure how to proceed. Still feeling cut-off from an artistic and intellectual community. But A good Internet connection and a small library could solve a lot. Or alleviate a bit. Or bring back.
I am fighting for fire. For wildness. For wilderness.
A first generation American with a sense of rootlessness. Ulster Scot. Unsettled. Wandering. Not a citizen of America. But broke my teeth on poetry in America.
"Eternul Sunshyne uv the Spotlus Mynd." From my new book Play Yr Kardz Right. Immigration, las vegas, circus circus, nova car, toothpicks, all-u-can-eat buffets, naked german ladies in their 80s. Etc. Available from Dostoyevsky Wannabe.
