PX Edition

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Dear readers, here is some news about that red deluxe book. I will produce The Mere Appearance Of Living for the third and last time with a special added extra. Those of you who have the original hard copy have seen image anchors on a few of the pages. Those of you who have downloaded the digital version, either from my site or iTunes, have been able to click on these markers to view a Monocular image, until now.

There is no more online gallery and in the not so distant future there will no longer be a digital book to download. The Mere Appearance Of Living PX is a limited edition run and will be colourful and glossy. Most of the previous poems will remain, such as “My First Suicide Note” and “The Wolf” but I will also slip in some new angles.

New site and order button, coming soon. Thanks for being here.

And there is the account of the hanging of three men, and a scuba diver, and a suicide. There are stories of coincidence and chance, of intersections and strange things told, and which is which and who only knows? And we generally say, "Well, if that was in a movie, I wouldn't believe it." Someone's so-and-so met someone else's so-and-so and so on. And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that strange things happen all the time. And so it goes, and so it goes. And the book says, "We may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us."

This is not a tiger

Four good reasons to ADOPT a pet instead of buying in a store:

1. Adoption helps stop pet overpopulation
2. Adoption saves lives
3. Adoption gives a second chance
4. Adoption often costs less

You can check the list of adoptable animals at Montreal’s SPCA on the Montreal Petfinder website.

BEFORE adopting, it is important to:
-Assess the costs of having a pet: food, visits to the veterinarian, litter, care products, and so on.
-Know your animal’s life expectancy and whether you have the time and energy to take care of a pet day after day.
-Anticipate that your new pet will need time to adapt to his or her new surroundings and understand that he could cause damages during this period.

Monday to Friday: 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Saturday and Sunday: 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

Every day of the week, our adoption counselors are pleased to advise you and help you find the perfect companion for you. They will also explain all that is involved when taking on the commitment and responsibilities of bringing home a pet. The SPCA’s boutique also sells the accessories you will need for a good start with your new companion.

-Puppies – less than 8 months: $285 (if you adopt a second puppy at the same time, the adoption fees of second one are $200)
-Dogs – 8 months and older: $235 (if you adopt a second dog at the same time, the adoption fees of second one are $125)
-Compassionate adoption: $75 (depends on the animal’s health or age – the evaluation is made case by case)

Fell a power line II

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Dear Charlie,

When I think of June my lungs shrink. I find myself watching myself watching you in a dream. I find myself seeing myself seeing you close your eyes, remembering that night. This is how I remember it...

When the day was done my bones ached. You were in the room where the instruments were played and friends came to hang on the edge of the couch. Sitting next to you felt better than any tear of relief. Magnets are stuck in jealousy of this synergy. As you placed your hands on your guitar you turned and smiled at me. Sitting next to you, I was without strings, carvings and cross. You were smiling at someone who had just returned to the world a second ago.

Feelings flooded my shell in a flash of that light of yours. My body vanished and all that was left was the mute sound of an invitation, until the moment a hand sent my bones pulsing back into my skin and she asked to take my place. She asked and I replied.

It was bad. I apologised and left your side for a cold chest of feathers. Sitting next to you was better than any tear or retreat but I couldn’t stand to let you see me this way, small, green and cloudy. I fell asleep in a crater and woke up in a jam. I walked to the music and took a place near the bar. You always knew how to see through a room without looking. 

You finished your song and they watched you leave it behind like it was a newborn child. I was happy to see you walk to me and smile once more. How did you even get through? Charlie, when you took my hand and said “I want to show you something” it felt like cheating. You were taking me somewhere and I didn’t even care where. I knew that you would never lead me to the crater. 

When we walked into it together I was confused. There in the dust under a dim light I could see a few old desks, a chalk board on the wall and some lockers. You kept staring at me, waiting for the math to be done but I kept searching the room for clues. This arrangement of old desks is so strange, I thought. Seems like they were just pushed together without reason. “Can’t you see?” you asked. You thought of everything. As you started to explain the pieces, the fillings and the possibilities I wanted to take you in my arms, be still for seasons and let the room disintegrate. 

I know you know that is impossible. I know you know who I am. You always knew how to see through a room without looking. And even though I could not write this without a tear or two, I wanted you to understand what June meant to me. So quickly I was in and out of my body, my mind was tossed. That room is the answer to a question I never dared to ask. This may come as a meteor to you, I’m sorry. We are still the same. You are over there while I am over here, but we’ll always have Dusty.

Here's looking at you kid.
