Shar I'm going to be an internet superstar when I grow up! Yeah! Just like Justin at www.links.net! I can expose myself to the masses.

Excellent. They will certainly help me with my plan for world domination. Ha.
Q Okay!

Just engineer it.

Inanna who wants to be
Most people think they do
Until they are

Invisible steeples
Two faced crew
Bad disguises
So they won't recognize

Eat the flesh
of the former famous
Crest won't cleanse
Dirty defensive
From your conscience
give it away
give it away
we don't need you
or you or you or you
Replacements born daily

Worship the youth
Deny the former group
How many Native American died
For our so called freedom
We lied to them
Why would not the new they
Lie to us

I look into those eyes
and I see beyond
the words

niki i am famous

Annie111 I saw Rosie O'Donnell in Koblin's once. Meredith was buying Chiclets, and Rosie, in her black spandex shorts and yellow fleece was buying cigarette lighters with a lady friend.

We tried to act all cool, but it was funny, and we spoke louder than we normally do. The air outside was cold and we drove to the football game playing DMX, like we were rebels or something. Kris calls us thugs, so I guess we are in the club.

uhane ku oko a (he) decries my protestations.
our common bond, belittled, and i'm sunk with the wisdom of a love three years too late
you wanted to be famous, well now you are. and what does it mean?
it means that i am here, perfecting a love letter that you can never read.
sketching your black-and-white face from a newspaper. a thumbnail sketch you can never see.
a time bomb that is my self-destruction, that the world will never know.
this is stupid. you are not real to me. i don't know you, and you don't know me.
except that you do.
you knew all about me and i don't know how. you see me all the time, but it is you who i see in the newspapers, it is you who i read about. not me. how do you know me?

you are a vision with no voice. you are a voice with no ears to listen. you are all ears and you listen while i speak. and yet we don't communicate.. we have not gone beneath the surface

i want to get inside your head. that's all. i want to play the game and swim in the ocean. that's all
i want.

i want to dig deeper but i've never held a shovel. i don't know what it is and i don't know how to use it. i don't know which way is down and which way is up... i am lost in this world a fucking anarchy i am lost in your dreadlocks and the cold steel of your labret

i've gone too far, and i no longer know (where) my passion lies. i like to believe that uhane ku'oko'a means independent spirit... but no. i want more than myself.
i want to be everything that i want you to be.
and i want you to want everything that i want to be.

be and want. the irony is painful. i have placed you
on a pedestal, as if you were an object that i can admire from below.
i have placed you on a pedestal that's impossible to reach.

i would be surprised to learn that you are not perfect
that you do not know everything
that nothing's what it seems
we need the escape that DISILLUSION presents
in order to get through the harsh realities of life

i'm afraid of falling and the world is badly made

you're absolutely right
you don't know everything
what you don't know is that
i'm you, just three years too late.
Lint Lover uhane ku oko a

GENIUS...My heart stopped.
falling_alone Famous
Naomi Shihab Nye - 1952-

The river is famous to the fish.

The loud voice is famous to silence,
which knew it would inherit the earth
before anybody said so.

The cat sleeping on the fence is famous to the birds
watching him from the birdhouse.

The tear is famous, briefly, to the cheek.

The idea you carry close to your bosom
is famous to your bosom.

The boot is famous to the earth,
more famous than the dress shoe,
which is famous only to floors.

The bent photograph is famous to the one who carries it
and not at all famous to the one who is pictured.

I want to be famous to shuffling men
who smile while crossing streets,
sticky children in grocery lines,
famous as the one who smiled back.

I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous,
or a buttonhole, not because it did anything spectacular,
but because it never forgot what it could do.

Your arms wrapped around me in the morning and your smile in the kitchen
Are famous to me.
