New demo by Burnpile...

my band Burnpile and i working out a new song i'm feeling pretty good about:

Thursday, April 28, 2011

it took a while,
what you were doing,
as it was unrecognizable,
even (especially) to you,
but then it was there to stay,
to keep

you blew and blew to get the fire going,
tears warm on your gladdening face

in the distance sounds of celebration--
somebodies when

sit the fire tonight
work tomorrow's light

inscription, relief
the return
the gone here
out of time and place
the dream was

go go go
where you always were

My wonderful, longtime friend Kat has a great blog! Check, check it by clicking below:

Perpetual Andragogy: Adventures of an Adult Learner

The most recent post is a great ode to the great book The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. I urge you to check it out!

More, Kat has another cool blog:

That Dam Kat

(In explanation of the cool name.... Kat and I are both from Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, and particularly the classic Bagnell Dam area. Couple old dam cats to be shure. Dig it. A good solid part of my soul and heart yet lives there.)

the song came

the song came

the song came

you so ready

"I was slinging it up there and hoping something good happens instead of telling myself to have a focus and a purpose for each pitch," Westbrook said. "I really concentrated on doing that tonight and felt I was more locked in on what I was doing."

What did the person say to the person?

I don't know.

Saturday, April 09, 2011

your world of ideas
a house you lived in alone
old breathing home
seasons many
seasons many

"I came to be here. I came to be."

know you you
for few do

voices come and gone
and come again
a visitor at the end of the path
coming toward
a smile to raise the night
and then others
rooms made light
work remembered
stories made full
memory new

"I will outlast little but what is true."

know you you
know others too

quiet and full
at great length
a movement across field
up along the ridge
and out
toward sun
a sense of completion

"I was standing right there when I saw you."

breakfast pie:
helpless and swoll
let us face it:
it was disgusting
and you ate the fuck out it

in another restaurant
in another life
being with you was nice

Flicker (demo #3) by justin stone

Ketchikan (demo) by justin stone

old things anew
i never knew ye

In a quiet room...
How the dog put his paw on you...

How she came home,
Lightened that I know is a heavy mood...

It takes longer than you can think
To get over it...

Rough justice, I guess,
For my own abandonment

The wind do not know a time or date

buffeted by the wind

Long legs
penetrable skin

Outside town
I found my things
