the genesis flask

you slip through my fingers into the sand
and make a trail in speckle and spick
the prints of your limbs a lost dna strand

sprigs pop in your wake, magic and mayhem
ocean waves give your feet a slavish lick
comets swirl to give form your diadem

in this moment i am the creator
sower of dreams, bringer of time’s tick
standing at the edge of heaven’s crater

Barbaric methods

You mildly murmur at me
that I don’t value things,
all these lovely expensive things,
that you present

I wonder why you can’t see
I have only one use for rings,
all these useless diamond rings,
to make them pleasant

a Book (Fragment #027)

Урок 27 - The Book (by Culpeo-Fox)

An awesome work by Culpeo-Fox. Favourite books, favourite movies, favourite voices and favourite persons…

Again… this happened again. Again, I was reprimanded by Mr. Turdman and sent to our library to endure my punishment. I restrained myself with some effort, and hid my happy smile. I put the mask of a martyr over my face, and slowly left the classroom. The conditions of my punishment were that I must unpack some boxes filled with donated books. I must repair the damaged books then sort and catalog them all… Do you think that’s boring? Hell, no man! I know this work well and enjoy it!

On my way, I came across Patrick outside the library… Hmm… What the hell was he doing here? He should be in the basement near his precious ribbed eggs As usual, Patrick was engrossed in himself and didn’t notice me… or he just pretended that he didn’t… as always… My day would be made if I ruined him and his eggs! With such lovely thoughts, I walked into the library.

…I need, my dear friend, some illusions of elegance. Some elaborate magic tricks of my mind. Some visually enigmatic intrigue. Hmm… For example, I see… a pompously decorated dinner table… genteel society and lazy intellectual discussions… candles, goblets, silver… The luxurious tablecloth falls down to the floor… long… so long… and… Do you know what? It isn’t a tablecloth! It’s the hem of a dress! Long… so long… A long evening dress, an elegant, beautiful dress. It’s worn by a pretty girl standing on the stairs… with a glass of red wine and a cigarette in her cigarette holder, with a fur boa on her white marble shoulders… The girl is apathetic and cold. She doesn’t care about this genteel banquet. She spits on it. But… no… I was wrong! I glanced into her eyes… I understood… She isn’t cold and apathetic! The moment passed – she sharply tugged her hem! And candles, goblets, silver fly up into the air! And expensive red wine splashes pale aristocratic faces like luxurious toilets! And truffles with oysters dirty the exclusive parquet and silk wallpapers! And our girl… Oh! She’s fucked them all over! She’s leaving the banquet with her head held high through the front door…

…when I came back to myself, I was alone in the dark at the library. Damn! What is this? I twiddled the book without a cover in my paws. (to be continued)

One Lovely Blog Award. A bit of magic and the Russian Roulette!

Hey there!

I’m sure you forgot about this awesome fact… Didn’t you? But I didn’t forget! Yes, I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award 10 days ago! I’m immensely grateful for Jacob Lascsak (Serpentine is Here) for this nomination. And I must earn this sweet vermilion heart on my main page. OK… Let’s go, guys!

7 facts or things about me.

Hmmm… The most difficult part probably. My blog is a place for my writings, not for my private… but OK! Rules are rules. I adopted this nomination and I must play it straight. Enjoy!

1) I was born on Yuri’s Night.
Of course, I wanted to become an astronaut (a cosmonaut) in my childhood.

2) I wear sneakers with the characters from Toy Story’.
Hey, Rex and Potato Head! How are you today, guys?

3) I jumped with a parachute.
4,200 meters (it’s approximately 14,000 feet) and 1 minute of free fall… AAAAAAAAAAA! It was devilishly awesome!

4) I might have drowned in my childhood because of my parents.
Hey! Never leave your little kids with an air mattress alone on the bank! I decided that I was a cool sea captain and that I could reach the horizon…

5) I don’t use smartphones.
I really don’t need it… I use my cell-phone only for calls and SMS. My good old Nokia 6300 copes with this just perfectly!

6) I’m an agnostic.
At least, in this particular point of space and time, I feel so.

7) I practice yoga.
Regularly for about 4 years… Yes, I can do a lot of interesting things with my body… but the most interesting is what I can do with my mind.

8) I don’t remember…
Heeeeey! Stop! You’ve got 7 things about me already!

I decided to save you precious time for reading, liking and commenting on my blog. Well… just kidding! Of course, I’m looking forward to your new posts, and I decided to keep your precious time for them!

And… I’ve decided to play Russian Roulette. I’ll put a secret word as a tag and press ‘Search’. The first 15 posts that I like… and their authors will be my candidates. OK… I’m ready to surprise and to be surprised. Fire!

One Lovely Blog Award

Good news! I was honored by Jacob Lascsak’s (Serpentine is Here) nomination for the One Lovely Blog Award. And I really, really appreciate it! I know, some bloggers don’t accept such awards. I’ve read their posts, their very reasonable and rational posts… It’s a point of view, and it’s a really good thing.

I accept awards. Why? Because it’s something important for the particular person, who reads my blog, who thinks of me and nominates me. So, it’s important for me too. When a child gives me a twig and says it’s a magic wand… I never say it’s just a wet dirty stick. I never say it’s just trash. I take it and start to conjure.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” (Albert Einstein)

Thank you so much, Jacob! Let’s play with magic! By the way… nobody said that I’m a fairy godmother.
