The End of an Engine

August 20, 2009

hearts, yellow hearts
shallow and tainted
misguide you

through hoops of fire
trials of blood
and broken skin

to win is to win
it all and so every
bone inside you
sings like the strings
of your guitar
without a
glass of gin

so if i was a engine
i’m not longer holding on
i’m in a place inside a seed
where even the leaves don’t know

a cottage on an island on
a drifting sea
in the heart of a star
where red blood
no longer flows

Giorgio and John Hoffman: Educational Confrontation

August 19, 2009

“Giorgio, this has to fucking stop. You shat in my cat’s litter again.”

“You have to learn to look over perceived deficiencies to find beauty in other places, times, and ways, John.”

“Seriously, how the fuck did you even get in here? I could call the cops right now, and by the amount of complaints you’ve gotten, you’d go to jail, man. And that ‘contract,’ I signed means jack shit because you wrote with my daughter’s turquoise Crayola washable marker. ”

“The same way I went out. You’re thinking about after too many times before.”

I Pick All

August 19, 2009

Did you come to the conclusions
That anything that increased
decreases
Well I am chasing increasingly
And I will lose it
I’m running
For a cliff and in the moment
I fall
I will only then know
I could’ve flown the
Whole time
I’m glad to pull along anyone
I can for the ride
But I am
Content to say
My goodbyes

Giorgio: On The Question

August 19, 2009

Giorgio asked me a question one day.

He said, “I’m going to ask you a question, John. How?, what?, happened?, and why?”

I told Giorgio to shut the fuck up and stop smoking my weed and that I’m saving it for this weekend.

He said, “If you get the most negative answer possible, you’re getting somewhere”

August 19, 2009

The difference between looking at a painting and then running home and telling Giorgio what it is
and explaining that huge lost painting to Giorgio on the phone while looking up at its colossal existence.

Peaking

August 19, 2009

Giorgio can skillfully climb to the peak
but Giorgio is still not on the peak
