Poetry from GI Jane

“When I see the sea once more, will the sea have seen or not seen me?” – Pablo Neruda’s poem XLIX, from The Book Of Questions.

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself. – DH Lawrence

The ebb and flow of the Atlantic tides, the drift of the continents, the very position of the sun along its ecliptic. These are just a few of the things I control in my world. – Uncredited

Stop the Jumping/Skipping

Dumbass kids next door.

Look, I love kids and everything. but seriously furious skipping with a skipping rope in the middle of the night ain’t going to win you the most considerate neighbour of the year award. I’ve seen these kids. 2 fat, huge ones. Hey, I am chubby myself but that don’t mean I’d be skipping my ass off to piss off my neighbours.

FFS* Stop the insanity. i have to deal with two of these asswipes. You can imagine not one BUT two of them. It’s all nice and shit if they could skip nimbly but nOooooOOoo… if u watched Ultraman as a kid, no not Ultraman himself but rather two huge dinosaurs and monsters from space. Yeah. Imagine that. You get the picture now. Plus they awesomely suck at skipping. You know how i know this? In between seconds, one of them would take turns tripping and falling.

Skip. Skip. Skip. THUD! Ow!
Skip. THUD! OW! Skip. Skip.

Rinse and repeat action. + Add Random THUDS! and Ow!

So i quit caring immediately and turned up the music in my room.

Obviously making myself the neighbourhood nuisance as well.

If you can’t beat ’em join ’em.

FFS* = For Fuck’s Sake.

… ahhhhhhhhh can give you gatseebee.

If i ever end up with a bed with a big G on the bedspread and the headboard. shoot me.


Excerpts from “Must Love Dogs”

Jake: i think your heart grows back bigger ya know, once you get the shit beat out of you. And the universe lets your heart expand that way, cause thats the function of all this pain and heartache that you go through and you gotta go through that to come out to a better place

It’s a long story, something about the violation of expectations and a crushing loss of faith, and love, and life, and art.
Bill: So it’s a girl?
Jake: Yes.
Bill: I’ve had a little bit of girl trouble myself lately. But it is better to have loved and lost, am I right?
Jake: She was a unique constellation of attributes; she was my Halley’s comet. But the universe is designed to break your heart, right?
Bill: A philosopher as well as an artist, yes, it is we who suffer most.
Jake: Yes, with the possible exception of the victims of violent crime

The Way of the Force

Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.
Jedi respect all life, in any form.
Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.
Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
(There is no chaos, there is harmony.)(*)
There is no death, there is the Force.
More here.
May the Force be with you.

Everything’s gone to shit

Moments of despair,
Pen’s running out of ink,
Flowing thoughts run,
Away up the tunnel,
And then quickly down the sink.

What was built over the years,
End in wasted guilt,
Beauty and creation roamed freely,
In the wind, it whispers “feel”.

As much of the breeze swirls,
Flutters my beating heart within,
I clung on to what was the truth,
The only thing I knew.

Yet the sand beneath my feet,
Crumbling and disappearing,
My footing was lost and i clambered,
To hold on to what was real.

Yet the reality blurs,
My heart yearns and burns,
I reach out and grasp the straws,
And felt nothing more.

I lay awake, eyes wide open,
Shallow breathing, and beads of sweat,
I feel the sudden onset of heat,
and the realization that,

Everything’s gone to shit.


Sometimes it's easier to type the words that will hopefully, somehow ignite change because it is getting increasingly harder to sit back and watch as the whole world goes to shit. - Pointless
