How are you feeling?
K: Blessed, not stressed!

‘The Virgin Suicides’ – Book Review by K

Rhythm, music, feeling. The sound of words, unfettered by the demands of formal punctuation. Gone are the so-called ‘elements of style’, the stilted choppy grammatical prisons of words. Eugenides has liberated a world of words to speak a careful thoughtful truth which reflects a looking glass culture as clear as it is fragile, as rigid as it is agile, and characters trapped within it who are expansive before every contraction, larger than life and yet just a fraction. Fractured in the moving picture. I loved Sofia Coppola’s film adaptation of this novel, equally. Both the book and the film are magical, different, unusual. And unusual, in a creative and conscious kind of effort – unusual with a heartbeat – is the sort of rarity which keeps me interested in reading and watching, and engaged in the affairs of humankind. Nice to find a novel which does not leave one stuck in a pigeon pose, fervently scraping gum with a stick out from the rubber mould of a culture always left aside looking for some traction for a soul.  Image


wanting until it hurts

And have you ached with want?

the rabid foam

of lack


and do you foment insurrection

against your very

basic need?


splicing atoms after

that which

never may be yours?


if you have

then hear me now

i feel 4

five six

feel for



along the narrow


rush along

our river


emoticon game

They had hashtags in common.
And brown rice rye bread.
His ego was bigger than his and her head.
Emoticonning one another,
In an internet economy of words.


You are the one
the only
number 8

divisible by two
the lens we see through
two fours fit inside
off your curves
kids can slide

on your side

seven plus one
ten minus two
nothing dangerous
about you

what i like best
is skating you, 8
on frozen ponds
in winter

what i like most
is figuring 8
around and around
and around

two zeros entwined
you may not add up
4 a stop and go world
you are poorly designed

cream puff of numbers
the cutthroats don’t suit you
no wonder you come back on

called crazy
made fun of
you always look
in the mirror
the same

i hope people see
number 8 just like me
and not just another number

there’s a little 8
in all of us
so remember
you are not just another

when wishes went away

What i
wished 4
went away
not without a reach
a chase the
beach i reached
i raced

i cast far up and down
pacific highway coast
out blurred and rocky

to sea
it went
along that maladjusted spine
of shore

i was left
feeling lost
in heavy
of undertow

sweet bliss
into shore

fuck off
  fuck offf
     fuck offff 

lashing myself to friends
like tears
away from eyes
i pushed

i did not care
to see them or me or
what life was

what was life, really?
without what i so wished
i so demanded
     to be

i gave away
my things
to storage wars
for peace

she proved elusive
she ran
the park
off leash

i chased her up a tree
i would not let her be i
would not let it
not yet
it had to can’t you see?
not yet you see i…

see i
auctioned off
my faith
to educated whores
who bid me down
to earth
the ground
was barren

i knelt i turned pockets out for
seeds from Faulkners yard my
drunken pilgrimage

i gathered them with whisky
down beneath a tree in ninety-seven or was it nine?


i found the magic
seeds i did! but
ground was frozen
solid so i fell and
hit my head

like Faulkner
from his horse

a sinkhole opened wide
where my blood once
seven? ninety-nine or
was it?

my family
just a photograph
my life

what 4 waiting

this orange flower 

was all green all

closed up


just another bud

all night long

waiting on the sun


cold and frozen like

she forgot about her

true self her real

beauty her



what 4 waiting

we might have forgotten her, too

and the sun, too



what 4?


she opened

her heart her

true self

sun kissed orange

to the world

one for the fishes

i cannot know
not will not

to hell for

cannery row

i cannot
not cannery

a hell for fishes i
cannot know

in stead in
place i
read the

so not to know the
evil living hell

so not to can
so not to
the dreadful
