John Martin

laughing through grad school
(academic stuff) (hints of life beyond
school and work)
(Flying Moose videos, photos, stories, etc.) (observations)

Things I may write about

A quiet table lamp,
bent with the weight of light.
 
The isolation of an eight ball,
watching others fall.
 
Birds on Sunday strolls,
in 3D skyways.
 
The September calendar,
in August or October.
 
A bottle full of beer,
shaken and waiting.
 
The postage stamp,
licked and curling.
 
Bread heels,
meeting at last.
 
Rogue bubblegum
choosing shoe over sidewalk.
 
Tracy Fricke's bra in 6th grade.
(I didn't mean to break it.)
 
Old flashlight batteries,
losing vitality.
 
Her muscles,
when she dances.
