2018/4/5 i think the special tragedy of
2018/1/4 speculative execution
2017/11/28 it helps (maybe it's a need)
2017/11/8 the snow melting over the green grass
2017/10/26 outside the windows the newly
2017/10/19 the late afternoon
2017/8/4 we're a fire
2017/7/11 sometimes
2017/6/26 photography
2017/3/15 you've got to remember
2017/1/27 insomnia's a poor subject, i guess
2017/1/20 the text is a program
2017/1/14 enough exposure to the look and feel of
2016/10/17 (nobody wants another meditation on mortality
2016/9/26 outside my window
2016/8/17 writing is a
2016/8/13 the frogs
2016/8/10 i sometimes feel like i'm living a
2016/6/1 in my life it seems like
2016/5/2 there's a picture on the wall of kurt cobain
2016/4/19 i used to be obsessed with
2016/4/1 reality is n-dimensional,
2016/3/25 tenebrae
2016/1/14 then again, maybe writing is just
2016/1/12 looking up through sunglasses as i step out of the alley
2016/1/5 it's gotten easier with time
2015/10/22 filing cabinets
2015/9/24 i carry on so much conversation

2014/4/15 From another time and a different season, Rexroth, "Blood on a Dead World":
2014/3/13 the poem and the song
2014/2/24 it's been warm all day;
2014/2/12 i told a story today, thinking of you and
2014/2/11 sometimes the frame shifts
2014/2/3 one day
2014/1/26 it must be sixty degrees in the sun
2014/1/21 history
2014/1/15 so you go on gathering
2014/1/12 the one casey is waiting for - reading
2013/12/3 a discourse on utility
2013/11/18 the ridiculous subjective interiority of being depressed as fuck all the time
2013/10/14 it's a hard thing
2013/10/6 i guess it still colors the air around me
2013/9/8 i step out into the rain, pipe in hand
2013/7/16 the world is complex, complicated,
2013/7/12 then what is it you lose,
2013/5/2 from a bus running north out of boulder
2013/4/8 maybe in the end there's but one
2013/2/9 midwinter midafternoon; depressed as hell

2012/5/11 mountains behind mountains recede into
2012/4/27 fragment
2012/4/11 this poem again
2012/4/9 you're forever arriving and departing
2012/3/26 1 a.m. is usually where i find myself
2012/3/17 i guess maybe we ask too
2012/2/1 sometimes, i think
2012/1/29 laws of conservation of longing:
2012/1/10 — it's a strange winter in the middle places
2011/10/14 i've got this friend has a real knack
2011/8/12 christ it's late and i'm exhausted
2011/8/10 one diminishes or becomes greater
2011/7/4 happy birthday the USA,
2011/6/3 you know what the sensation of getting old is?
2011/5/15 A partial inventory of things found in one of those blue plastic tubs from my parents' basement, where I threw a bunch of stuff the last time I had to move in a hurry:
2011/4/25 i can't claim to strive for it
2011/1/1 six years on
2010/12/6 it's hard to say where an end begins
2010/12/5 recent notes
2010/11/15 All right, deep breath. Approximately midway through the month of November, I am sitting on about 7 thousand words. This is some literal tens of thousands away from where I should probably be if I were going to hit that 50k.
2010/11/2 i've been off the sauce lately
2010/10/30 i was remembering today
2010/10/9 outside it's going over into fall,
