all day long wearing/a hat that wasn't/on my head

'What’s the difference?' I asked him. 'Between the love of your life, and your soulmate?'
‘One is a choice, and one is not.’

Tarryn Fisher, Mud Vein (via larmoyante)

I know there is no straight road
No straight road in this world
Only a giant labyrinth
Of intersecting crossroads

Federico García Lorca (via noir-couplet)

Grand Mal

Before Daily Doses and Episodes,

When my hair was still blond, Disordered,

I, in a Steady State,

watched soccer games –

siblings scrimmaging

on summer days.

I balanced on the backup balls,

sideline children Spell-bound.

Then one day, I lost my footing

and Fit effortlessly in the green grass.

Mitchell is writing about his experience growing up with #epilepsy.  Like his favorite poet, Emily Dickinson, he capitalizes the important words.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
