Raina My guy MetaMo
had the ill flow
words so fierce and furious.
Wasn't sexually attracted to him but
I always noticed
when he performed at shows
he felt his words so much
that it made his member angry.
I began to feel them too.

Xipe Totec new haircut
new clothes
new make-up

my back no longer aches when i get out of bed and though i've lost a little speed i can still pull off a fair crescent kick...something i haven't even tried since the mishap which left me a near invalid for a few months

there are still old scores i want to settle (and they know who they are)

but as the summer finally dies, so have some of the worn and broken pieces

i feel a resurgence of confidence and maybe even a bit of agression and hunger

cut away my roots
i've stuck myself
in this soil for too long

peel away my skin
the spring is here

paste! ...or "Never fuck with caterpillars"


Halfheartedly watching someoneís feet, a caterpillar rests.
It used to squirm around looking for solutions
but now it just sits around
in clear view of the feet of people.

This is bullshit, it decides, and stands up, walks off.
When it comes from out of the bank
the teller is still wondering
whether or not it was really a gun or just its finger.

The caterpillar uses the wildly inconsecutive and unmarked bills
to fly to Cancun for a spell of sunshine and lounging.

This is more bullshit, it says, and sneaks under a crack
leading to the pilotís cabin.

Excuse me, it says, Can you train me to be a pilot?
The co-pilot laughs.
The pilot, highly caffeinated, replies,
ďWell, look here pal, we donít take too well to caterpillars in this industry.
But thatís just a matter of common opinion

Down at the tower, they believe that throwing
peanut shells onto the carpet is bad luck.
On the radar screen, the bleep disappears.

Risen The evolution_of_thought is a type of metamorphosis. It is not that the object of thought changes, it is that the thinker changes, and so begins to understand the object of thought on more levels.

The first thought was one born of grief and regret. A sort of "things to do before I die" bucket list. One of which was to throw caution and consequences to the wind and tell someone they were a unique and beautiful diamond in the rough, and someone had noticed that they were special. It was supposed to be a last gift to the world.

Next, it was about someone who was in a completely different league. Someone who didn't like any of the things people usually liked about me. In fact, those things were her least favourite things about me. Parental disapprovement, bad girl chic, wild romantic gestures, drama... she saw them as bad habits and poor covering for insecurities long before I did.

Sometimes I wonder why someone so intelligent would make the mistake of going anywhere near old me with a ten foot barge pole. Then I remember that the real strength was in getting out while she still could. Before the infection spread.

In the later years, she became a symbol of the kind of person I'd meet someday, without all the baggage. Then I went and tried to find someone similar, and I realised just how unique she was. Not a type, to be switched out at will with another, but a true unicorn. Seriously. Five years in the place I thought they grew unicorns, and I never spotted another.

The metamorphosis, the evolution of thought, it was about realising that I was not the center of a universe, I was just one of many spinning planets. The empathy, the realisation of how much I hurt people, the regret, the need for redemption, the need to apologise not to be forgiven, but to try to forgive myself.

Now, I see it all as a lesson learned. A way of making sure that I never take anyone or anything for granted again. That I know what the genuine article looks like, and I don't want to settle (not that it's an option, but it's the principle of the thing).

To one day maybe be worthy of someone like that, even if they aren't around. To know that this me, in my new incarnation, would get it right.

From cockroach into human, I suppose.
