Swirled Verse

Fragments of phrases. Frivolous fribble. Wily little expressions of something or nothing... sometimes something else. Intertwining fixations: artistic, aquatic, and acoustic aesthetics.

Preparing the demi-palazzo (@idvssuperego) for a perpetual game of Queen of Hearts croquet. With flamingos. Cue music and: “off with their heads!” Right, @cabnews? (at the rabbit hole)

We’re finalising details for our trip to India. Waldo wants lions and tigers. I want silks and floating palaces. I think we’re close to planning a bit of everything, bengals to Bollywood, and maybe we’ll be able to stop over in Bangkok for a few days. One thing is certain: I’m going with empty bags so I can fill them as we travel. I envision a living room redecorated in Nouveau Raj upon our return. And on my arms, bracelets… stacks and stacks of bracelets.

I hate the Gulag shoes they sell under the guise of ‘the latest fashion’. I don’t always understand the English they speak. No one thinks I’m funny.

When I confessed my distress to him he asked if I wanted to go back to Miami. “No. There’s nothing that feels like home there, either.” He slid the map in front of me. “Just point,” he said. “Pick a place. We’ll figure out the rest.”

He is why I’m here and why I stay.
