I should have done this forever ago… but I’ve decided to put the brick (flex6300) to work when I’m not using it 🙂 From now on, mostly, when I’m not using it for something else or whenever it won’t interfere with other research I’ll be running WSPR on a VM using the 6300 and my large vertical loop.

He’s seen a hundred come before
They’d rush ahead although forewarned
…and in their haste – get their “reward”
Another verse if you please…

He raised his voice to spread the lore
The signs he posts still go ignored
… as they scurry past the scattered gore
Another verse if you please…
Another verse if you please…

He settles back, can’t bear to watch
He shakes his head, and checks his watch
… and bides his time,
it ticks and talks,
then there’s the cRACk
that tells the tale,
A flash of red,
A tuft of fir,
A FLURRY OF UNBRIDLED MADNESS AND VIOLENCE AND SHIVERS RUN UP HIS SPINE SHAKING HIM TO HIS CORE CRUMBLING HIM TO THE GROUND IN HORROR, and, sorrow, and, loneliness, and despair…

The 2nd mouse gets the cheese.
The 2nd mouse gets the cheese.

Nowhere
Nothing
Zero
Zilch
A quantum foam
Seithing with fire
The emptiness burns
A glassy sea
And no this doesn’t ryme
It’s chaotic
Zilch
Zero
Nothing
Nowhere
Zoom
Out

IT does not compute
IT does not compute
Cat can haz compute?
IT does not compute

green eyes wonder through a smoldering sky
without blinking
without fading
piercing the blue orange gradients through to darkness and pinpoints of shiny twinkles

Slow

Blink

Something precious, ripped away
see how the broken pieces lay
they’re scattered here and all around
in shredded tatters on the ground

Where once was hope and promises
now we count but lies and losses
smoldering embers question: why?
while answers smoke into the sky

Sounds rumor joy off in the distance
while pain enforces it’s persistence
tears may carry it away, but
far too slowly on this day

No longer cause to celebrate
on every footfall, hesitate
shuddered breaths between each tear
a hollow moan for each lost year

Fall to the floor and block the door
drift off to sleep and dream no more

don’t clutch at the ashes and curse at the darkness
blend your flame with my fire and rage at the edge
we’ll forever move forward in increasing circles
rippling together through oceans of love

discard the cold cinders of broken machinery
hold tight to your memory of our hands intertwined
in the smiles of the faces we’ve met we’ll keep living
immortal as starlight and bright as the sun

we are never a part of the dust that we’re borrowing
the sweet sound of your voice only moves through the air
these thoughts we exchange are like sparkling fireworks
for a brief, brilliant moment they light up the night

hold close to me now and move with me sweetly
slow dance to the music we’ve grown in our souls
entangled we’ll travel eternity’s limits
after worlds melt away may there still be our song

Lord, don’t you take me a piece at a time.
Don’t make me die shivering, and losing my mind.
When I go, take me quickly in one blinding flash.
Preferably fighting the dragon.

Joanie fell down and got stuck on her back.
They lopped off her feet when they wouldn’t grow back.
To stop her complaining, they hooked her on smack
and she quietly wasted away.

Oh lord, don’t you take me a piece at a time.
Don’t make me go shivering, and losing my mind.
When I go, take me quickly in one blinding flash.
Preferably fighting the dragon.

Bobby had started to lose track of time.
He misplaced his name, and his life slipped his mind.
To keep him from roaming they tied him up tight.
There he lingered for hundreds of days.

Oh lord, don’t you take me a piece at a time.
Don’t make me die shivering, and losing my mind.
When I go, take me quickly in one blinding flash.
Preferably fighting the dragon.

Freddie rode his bike home.
It was time to get back but his friends ran him over while driving on crack.
They scooped up the pieces and kept them alive.
The light’s on and nobody home.

Oh lord, don’t you take me a piece at a time.
Don’t make me die shivering, and losing my mind.
When I go, take me quickly in one blinding flash.
