Poetic Justice can be poetically playful…..when you’re a poet anyway

agoraphobic philosopher says

I say what I mean I mean what I say
I am not mean to ruin your day
you’ve misunderstood what I say

consider there’s considerations at play
sun above earth below another day
blue moon tonight howl and bay

 

 

I enjoy the Cowboy Junkies most haunted version of this song and while Elvis was hardly the only one who recorded that song, I think his is the most heart rendering version. Sorta like kd lang’s Halleluh is the best version of the Leonard Cohen song, because only her version captures the rapture and the kink subtext of the bible story.

 

so really, as a writer, I can tell you that you can’t really understand anything until you can understand the subtext and nuances.

 

and, as a person in trauma recovery. I can also tell you all that unless a person can understand nuance and subtext…. You really can’t understand anything around you.

 

In some ways, having people treat you like you are normal is the worst thing ever, because you are not normal and your responses are not normal and your understanding of what’s going on around you is not normal. Your perceptions are altered and it’s difficult for people who have not been through trauma or depression to understand that.

 

I am grateful every day to my roommates Rhonda and Lorne who support and accommodate my strange behaviours and remind me every day of who I used to be and they celebrate with me, throughout the day, the person that I have now become.

 

I am grateful every day to my online support system of friends too, some of whom I have known for almost 20 years over various sites, http://www.zoetrope.com and http://www.thewritersbuilding.org! YEAH WRITERS  and more recent friends on Facebook of all places.

 

Yeah facebook! cheaper than therapy, but not as fun as bubble wrap! LOL
