POETRY: Thunderstorm

Like the smallest pebbles
The drops of rain fall
Gently and soothing
Upon the windowsill.
As the wind blows,
They change direction,
Spattering against the glass.
Cleaning away the grime
Of a city caked in dust.
Bright white flashes of light
Brilliantly flare in the sky
As the sound of thunder
Crashes against the walls
And shakes them to their core.
I sit quietly in my room
And close my eyes
And imagine myself
Drenched in rainfall.
The wild weather’s wrath
Encircling me in fury.
Washing me clean.
For the water cleanses
My soul and senses.
And as the rain subsides
So do I return
To everyday life.

Speedy Delivery

Bzzzzzzzz

Bzzzzzzzz

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I went to bed VERY late the night after I got back from Montreal. I must have been wired still from the trip, even though I was completely broke (still am) and painfully exhausted. Nonetheless, I had blogging to do and guys to cruise. I had to catch up!

Very early the next morning, I was awakened by my doorbell. I remember wondering if I had forgotten about plans I had made with a hot boy and quickly started to grab the essentials– lube, rubbers, etc…

But first I had to answer the door. I was more than half-asleep still, but I made it. It was the Fed Ex guy delivering a package to me. (Insert crass remark here.)

I buzzed him in and he left it on my front doorstep. I must not have been fast enough. (Or I fell asleep again somewhere in between the buzzing in and opening the door.) Before I went back to bed I opened the package… it was from my friend in NYC who’s moving to Australia– an American Pride Flag. How cool!

She left me a nice note. I read it, still groggy and nodding off. So I went back to sleep.

I don’t know where I’m going to hang/fly this thing. I live in a half-courtyard apartment building with no flagpole. I already have an American Flag that I bought after 9/11 that is still folded properly and put away for the same reason. But it’s cool. I’ll definitely keep it and treasure it… and someday I’ll use it.
