The Masquerade

We all wear masks Hi, I'm fine At 20 paces Smile and nod You're doing fine They all think You're genuine We all wear masks So no one's prying Your trompe l'oeil It looks so real It works if they Can't see you crying And here's the deal: This thing ain't lying You can't be real And still survive No one gets out Of here alive Careful, dance The masquerade Bow and curtsy, Take your place Step into The self you've made Never let them See your face.

Darkness, my old frenemy

Darkness, my old frenemy, You've come to shadow-box with me: I shall not let you win today, I'll never let you win.
With the abyss you'll threaten me, Make all my senses dead to me, You will not wrest my faith from me Into your rictus grin.
Despair, for all you harry me Bully, harass, and sally me I'll never let you carry me To regions dark and grim
You tempt me with that last cravasse Where woes and troubles are all past I know it is an Auschwitz gas, And a poisoned web you spin.
You monstrous spider sucking light, You ghastly thing begetting fright, You servant of the things of night, I'll never let you win. (written 1/28/2015)

Ode to a Migraine

(from 1/26)

My brain is a barometer
Expanding like a balloon
Ow ow ow dammit
Stupid migraine
I don't need a brain-barometer
I have an app for that
Also an old-school barometer
My head's in a vise
You might surmise
It's no surprise
I hate it
Stupid migraine
Barometer balloon vise
In my brain
Make it stop dammit.

Well, I'm back.

I guess I might as well cross-post here and at WordPress, since there's no point getting rid of the WordPress blog I went to so much trouble setting up. But all the traffic goes here.

I got rid of all my widgets; hopefully that should get rid of the "You have evil Russian spam" problem.

Where have I been for two years? Oy. That's a long story. I reckon I'll start at now and work backwards.
