A Not So Simple Question

Mama, she really loved me

Even when I was bad

She’d hold my little hand..

My gradual descent into a life I never meant…

I found myself staring at the closed oak door like the day you threw me out…

I’m in love with you completely. I’m afraid that’s all I can do…

For my lover…

THE NUMBERS

How many nights have I lain here like this, feverish with plans,

with fears, with the last sentence someone spoke, still trying to finish

a conversation already over? How many nights were wasted

in not sleeping, how many in sleep–I don’t know

how many hungers there are, how much radiance or salt, how many times

the world breaks apart, disintegrates to nothing and starts up again

in the course of an ordinary hour. I don’t know how God can bear

seeing everything at once: the falling bodies, the monuments and burnings,

the lovers pacing the floors of how many locked hearts. I want to close

my eyes and find a quiet field in fog, a few sheep moving toward a fence.

I want to count them, I want them to end. I don’t want to wonder

how many people are sitting in restaurants about to close down,

which of them will wander the sidewalks all night

while the pies revolve in the refrigerated dark. How many days

are left of my life, how much does it matter if I manage to say

one true thing about it—how often have I tried, how often

failed and fallen into depression? The field is wet, each grassblade

gleaming with its own particularity, even here, so that I can’t help

asking again, the white sky filling with footprints, bricks,

with mutterings over rosaries, with hands that pass over flames

before covering the eyes. I’m tired, I want to rest now.

I want to kiss the body of my lover, the one mouth, the simple name

without a shadow. Let me go. How many prayers

are there tonight, how many of us must stay awake and listen?

More then ‘Stars Fell on Alabama Last Night’

Dear Tuscaloosa,

I’m speechless,
You’re blown away.
I want to see you,
and be there
But I know you’re just as far gone as me.

I’m sorry that I left you,
I always had one foot out the door.
I’m sorry I’ve always been running,
and looking for something
Completely unknown.

My dearest,
There’s no place like home.
If I ever spoke poorly of you,
I’ll take it all back.

Alabama the beautiful
My heart is still with you.

Somewhere,
Buried in the dirt.

And everything will be ok,
because
Nothing’s ever worth it,
Especially if it doesn’t hurt.

– Anastasia Frangoulis

Son of a Gun

In loving memory of the talented and beautiful, Kurt Cobain. He tragically died 17 years ago today.. Here’s a classic Nirvana song, Son of a Gun, covered by The Vaselines, to pay tribute to the grunge hero we all love and miss..

Son of a gun. You are the only one and no one else can take your place. The sun shines in the bedroom when you play, and the raining always starts when you go away….

Amethyst Eyes

Please take a moment to remember the cinematic Hollywood princess Elizabeth Taylor. She passed away this morning due to complications with congestive heart failure. She will forever be remembered for her iconic beauty, glamour, courage, wit, and of course, her Amethyst eyes…

I’ve always admitted that I’m ruled by my passions.      -Elizabeth Taylor

Last Night..PB&J

Peter Bjorn and John, amazing show last night at the dark, underground venue, the Santos Party House! I slipped past the “List” and found myself in a dark, cave like bar, heavy with anticipation, hip kids wearing sweaters,  lots of layers and drinking beers too fast. The light seemed hazy and smoky as we stood there waiting… But of course we were not disappointed as you cast a trance like melancholy-magic spell on everybody in the room, as we swayed to your irony.

Thank you for rocking NYC for all the cool kids.. Please come back soon!! Great new album, Gimme Some, oh Peter, Bjorn & John.. you can’t be beat. We love you!!

Love Can Destroy Everything

This is the perfect ballad. The Raveonettes are out of this world, incredible.

I Vaguely Remember Something You Told Me
When I Took A Shot At Your Heart
You Said You Could Never Die For Someone
Who Tore All Your Dreams Apart
Here I Go Not Even Surprised
When Love Is Gone Like Something You Stole
It Takes A Little Time Of Getting Used To
But Love Can Destroy Everything…

Love Can Destroy Everything is off the album Chain Gang of Love, but the cure for a broken heart is LUST LUST LUST..

Me oh my your luck, seems to be no more. Fighting to get up, falling to the floor.

Me oh my you say {I can’t know}, what you’re going through. Funny you forgot {that I’ve had}, the exact same thing back from you.

If you wanna complain…

The Simple Truth

Some things

you know all your life. They are so simple and true

they must be said without elegance, metre and rhyme,

they must be laid on the table beside the salt shaker,

the glass of water, the absence of light gathering

in the shadows of picture frames, they must be

naked and alone, they must stand for themselves.

My friend Henri and I arrived at this together in 1965

before I went away, before he began to kill himself,

and the two of us to betray our love. Can you taste

what I’m saying? It is onions and potatoes, a pinch

of simple salt, the wealth of melting butter, it is obvious,

it stays in the back of your throat like a truth

you never uttered because the time was always wrong,

it stays there for the rest of your life, unspoken,

made of that dirt we call earth, the metal we call salt,

in a form we have no words for, and you live on it.

-Philip Levine

Early Morning Rain

Dear Raveonette, please come home..

In the early morning rain with a dollar in my hand, and an aching in my heart, and my pockets full of sand. I’m a long, long way from home.. well the liquor tasted good, and the women all were fast, but there she goes my friend…

Winter Scrawl

She listened so hard

to nothing, or

to those dissonances of winter that field

the ear and tune the world

with crackling pine; the pine

tree could not be heard

but for a brittle

rendering of the air,

And the snow began uneventful,

then in a longing

for the ground it heaved

down with a hapless sigh.

 She made no address, standing

in a prism of sky

ground tree—vast

and vast but ever intimate—

She, one countless

narrow consequence,

spread with eye and ear

and waving hand.

And inferred that branches

in apparent death, or sky

drawn in unseemly

light, never – when

the quiet got so dense or

time cast itself a blanket

from unrelenting scraps—never

eased into oblivion.

– Meg Sullivan
