your middle name is danger

March 24, 2009

we’re waking up before falling asleep. staring out at nothingness through a starbucks window, which incidentally, is also a wall; letting my fingertips do the talking, thinking, and maybe this is a bad idea. we’ll see. “no one wants to hear you sing about tragedy.” between me and blue skies I see black clouds and i’m hoping that isn’t a sign of things to come or if it is, hoping i’ll see it in the glass half full sense. who cares about grammar (!), although i’m still conscious of spelling and i’ve always been one to pretend to take things as they come but secretly planning one step ahead and still messing it all up in the end and i guess that’s reason for the pretentious charade. “no one wants to hear you sing about tragedy.” i’m always one iceberg off being a dreamboat. remembering when she asked me if it was “iceberg” or “iceburg”? that ship’s sailed, mine’s sunk. I’ve always been water in her lungs, she never needed me and it’s okay. she said i’m forgetting who i am but joke’s on her because i don’t think i’ve ever known. “no one wants to hear you sing about tragedy.” ominous and gloomy, weather’s still nice and i enjoy it. can’t wait to take photos when it inevitably gets beautiful again in chino hills. for now though, let’s dance in the midst of these storms; wind and rain and thunder and you in your favorite dress, and me in my sunday best and sometimes love ain’t nothin’ but a number. or something like that.

everyone loves to hear songs about tragedy
