deep blue shoes

Stone with marble-laced shoestrings
chocked loafers no faithful dog could bring
annoying leg discomfort symptom to bear
a bit less bothersome than gasping for air

That's pretty But then, you're always clever and wonderful at what you write. I've been trying to imagine all along where your deep, dark (ok, dark blue then) true inspirations come from.

Mine? Well, just know that I still think of her everday, in every way. And there are countless others, but it's all such a heavy torture, you see, getting to know how. . .to get to my own kind of surface. I'm not looking for glory, it's looking for me.

I think about her everyday too, Michael. ;^)
She inspires on, she does.

I ease my own torture by just sketching stuff - daily if I can - and keeping it as brief as possible, because the way I figure it, people who stop by here are visiting blogs at the speed of light.
