A Poem In Written Time

I need to write a poem,
A poem for the day,
A poem for my goals -
Or they'll never go away.

A poem for my future,
As I take it time by time,
A future for each dive,
And each climb.

A poem, in written time.

Writer's Block, Mid City

Tell it to the mailman,
Tell that dog don't go out cold,
Don't gloat until you've made friends!
But how do you know if you can't name them?
Just take your place - look.
It's that little blue square on FaceBook.
I think the shield is up but a bit too little for me,
Too small to tell me that I am in the tallest of leagues -
But It's not all sports without wins or losses,
We're not the same if we're not twins as bosses,
The order came... but will they grieve?
Were too high flying in the Phoenix league.
Just flying coach, just flying boss.
I'll keep winning till I'm at loss... for words.
And then, I'm at loss. Lost. Forgotten what it was like... to have writer's block.

Give Me A BREAKaleg

Don't be that cold haze!
I look into with each old gaze,
Always as it was we look -
Until it is and what do we know: faith.

I've tried to cut my ties,
Cut them! Cut them up inside!
Cut my ribbons, cut my ties,
Cause they don't go well with this suit.
Hell, I don't go well.
I'd rather dwell in a parachute than without excuse or reason for falling.
And my future always calling, always calling time and time again from dawn to early morning and calling time my... friend?
That's not the time I know! I know this time I'll go out cold
In the winter when I'm sitting indoors until I squint.
Say life is mint. I eat them till I am taken in.
Till I am taken. The male orgasms: how can you fake them?
And nothing else is euphoric unless it's shit!
But hemorrhoids make me their bitch.
I have a scratch. I have an itch.
I have this... calling to get somewhere... but where?!
I'm going all in, I'm getting there.
I'm getting opinions I'm getting a blip!
My place on the map and not just the lip!
Cause I am lit like I'm on fire, rise higher and higher,
Rich at least in adlibs. I'm on point but not the point, I'm just the tip.
I think I'll wane until the world ends, then try again.
And again, and a gain is not a loss - a sacrifice is all a cost,
It's what it is and all I was and I'd think twice before I put a rotten fish
On ice.

Try Not To Become A Man Of Success...

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

The Hateful Eight (2015)

The Hateful Eight (2015)

Tarantino delivers! And he's back on the topic of blacks and whites and America again - reminiscent of the recent Django Unchained, but with an entirely different setting, and with snow instead of fields of cotton.

The sceneries are truthful, the characters vengeful, and though it all plays out in a wagon, and in Minny's Haberdashery (I like that word!), it stays captivating. The pace is refreshingly slow - as it often is in Tarantino movies, with room for tension and intrigue, and there are plenty of twists along the way. You won't expect them. Not all of them. Though even if you do - don't try to, just enjoy the show!

Samuel Jackson's there (as usual), as is Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Zoƫ Bell, Tim Roth and a few more that might spoil the surprise at their mention! The story-telling is top notch. The characters live into their roles, and speak as I imagine they did in a time of the past, and they puke blood.

It's intense. It's well-written, well-paced, very Western, and well worth a watch if you like Tarantino films. That man makes each movie as masterful as the next, and as uncouth and controversial as ever - but it tells a story, it makes sense, it's filmed in style, and packed with emotion.

IMDB has a pretty good description on the plot of this one, I'll let them conclude: In the dead of a Wyoming winter, a bounty hunter and his prisoner find shelter in a cabin currently inhabited by a collection of nefarious characters. Great watch.

Warm Bodies (2013)

Warm Bodies (2013)

A zombie love story with a happy ending?! Who would've known!

Though the zombies don't always seem like zombies (maybe that's because they're not), the future dystopia looks real enough. The Bonies are a big enough threat. The relationship gets warmer and warmer, the occasional vinyl playing in the background is hopeful and jumpy, and when it's all done I'm in such a happy mood I just... feel happy! It's great to be alive again! :D

If you want a different kind of zombie movie, without the scares and grime and despairful dystopia - but still a bit of suspense, give this one a go. The actors (mainly Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer) do their thing. The city does look abandoned. The thing about zombies gaining the memories of those they eat is a nice touch too, but most importantly: it's just a really feelgood movie, without getting all cheesy and chastised because of it. Great watch.
