Not For Nothing

by Matt Hetherington

 

Most eyes are looking for other eyes.

*****

Love Your Disease

*****

Winter solstice – rain sleeping in the clouds.

*****

The large majority of the time, we are just comparing the size of our idiocies.

*****

So so-so!

*****

Where do you hide in an empty room?

*****

There’s too much of everything.

*****

The planet grows bluer.

*****

I’ve got more dark corners than a circle in the night.

*****

be as humble as a door
as humble as a toothbrush
as humble as

*****

Skindrinking the breeze…

*****

Wind-grabbed / star-washed / drizzle-rinsed / night-dried

*****

If you want to laugh, look at the back of your knees.

*****

The big dream is smaller than us.

*****

…clouds, moods…

*****

The immense desire to be the water itself – where the clear ocean rests in warm pools over ancient rocks.

*****

I’d climb out of this hole, but I can’t feel the sides.

*****

Every dream with a soundtrack!

*****

I’m still afraid, after all this time, to write that list of the words I overuse.

*****

Killing the spider, you become more ugly than the spider is.

*****

Now noting knowing nothing.

*****

i am where i be
i be where i am

*****

Couldn’t see the face for the eyes…

*****

There’s nothing above loving.

*****

Just before you die you will suddenly be very young.

*****

I take your point until it stops me.

    Thank you, Matt. Very evocative fragments. I especially like the sentiment about the spider, but they are all are quite thought-provoking.
