serenely / gazing up at the mountain —

English major with a penchant for things.

In my absence from Tumblr, I’ve pretty much stayed the same.

Like a Canadian Park Cop once told me, “ignorance is no excuse.”

Your innocent injustice is your ignorance
Of no small significance
Obliviously indifferent to obvious convictions
Blissfully you appreciate the chains wrapped ‘round your brain
Cranium on constant intermission
Mental capacity with no pot to piss in
Faculties dedicated to a different mission
Distracted and distant from the world you think you live in—
Is this life you’re living,
Or a snowglobe existence defined by your heedless disinterest?

Tommy at Denny’s, 2014.

As many assumed would happen following the surprise premiere of their new track"Midnight" and its music video, Coldplay have announced the release of their next full-length album Ghost Stories.

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it. Begin it now.”

—   W. H. Murray quoting a strong paraphrase of Goethe, as quoted by Steven Pressfield

Your bottles kill me
You kill yourself

A proposed solution to a perceived addiction.
My legacy is a collection of books both opened and -un.
Some, the spines would still crackle if you opened them
And they would certainly not behave
But instead try their darnedest to remain closed. 
Others, inconsiderable and select, will cooperate;
Worn and battered though they are, 
These are the greater treasures. 
The some collected dust and yellowed in the sun,
The others flung it off in their age, pages browned with fingerprints
And dust perhaps trapped in the creases where a page may have been open too long
Or just long enough. 
Marked are the things I love.
