Chronicles of Less Urban Living, Fresh from In the Night Farm


I blog too little lately
because I haven’t enough time

Which makes me wonder why I blog at all
because I could always fill time
in other ways
real ways

Still, I return to fill not time but minds
not space but souls
because people matter
even though, some days,
I hate us all.

I blog for the fatties!
the chronically ill, the dissatisfied
for the stubborn bodies that refuse to respond
to mindful
adherence to spoon-fed, corn-fed, never-dead

I blog for the primals!
the paleos already freed
but also dissatisfied
always alone
because no one still bound can understand.

Do they want to understand?

I blog to break free!

  1. Love this post. I know it came from frustration, but it's powerful. And I didn't know you were a poet, too!
