    the SQUID

    Posted in: Blog, Poetry

    Begins the transcluescent march/
    floor of the depth continues to me/
    The liquidy pulse
    Of  jungian sea/
    tempature  numb
    forest of water/
    Aqua zombie
    In monotone beat/
    Growing in size
    undulating key/
    music begins black
    And blacker soon it shall be/
    floating and floating in this feel nothing sea

    the SHEEP, the DOG and the WOLF

    Posted in: Writing

    The sheep, the dog

    and the wolf

    The grudge fuck - moral chaos of the undefined animal -

    does the sheep get a bone ?  why did the wolf not have

    the front desk hold his calls ?

    PART 1

    The conversation

    NARRATOR :

    The night was hot and sweaty; but how would the wolf know ?  he is

    between the high thread count sheets in his overly air conditioned hotel room.

    The Wolfs fangs had just hit the over stuffed pillows when, for a second, he

    mistook the ringing of the telephone for the ringing in his ears. That nights show

    at the coliseum had been LOUD and the wolf had his amplifiers volumes turned

    up to stun !

    It is 3 a.m. as the hotel phone continues to shout. The wolf knew

    better but responsibility demanded he pick up the receiver.  He recognizes the voice on the

    other end of the phone instantly.  A

    flash of lightning electrifies the room. Followed by the boom of distant thunder.

    Ring…. Ring….. ring…..

    wolf - what’s up

    sheep -  she says she wants to come up to my room

    wolf - who ?

    sheep - our guitar players girl friend

    wolf - what ?

    sheep - she is so hot man, what should I do

    wolf -  really ?

    sheep - yea what do I do? What would you do ?

    wolf - if I were you ?

    sheep - yea, listen I gotta call her back, she is close to

    the hotel and waiting. I need an answer.

    wolf - waiting where ?

    sheep - around the corner at a bar.

    wolf - hold on - I don’t understand - where is guitar boy ?

    Sheep - he has those two sisters in his room

    Wolf - the ones from he meet and greet ?

    Sheep - and their friend

    Wolf - their friend !  Christ, He is such an animal.

    sheep - what do you think I should do ?

    wolf - um, alright hold on - Lets slow it down - weight the

    positives and negatives

    sheep - o k, cool, cool

    wolf -  right, sounds like a grudge fuck

    sheep - what does that mean ?

    wolf -  what do you mean - what does that mean ?

    sheep - ( pause )……. I mean what the fuck do you mean ?

    wolf - she is pissed at our guitar boy so she is gonna throw

    her leg over him by fucking you. If she comes up to your

    room it is sure to be a nasty no holds barred sexathon. A

    Grudge fuck can be good stuff but, I’m worried you may be

    able to hold up your end.

    sheep -  I don’t think it’s like that. She said she had

    always been into me and that her thing with guitar boy was

    just to get close to me…………….

    wolf -  do not tell me you think the only reason she has

    been with our guitar player all this time was to get close

    to you !

    sheep - that is what she said.

    Wolf -  what are you thinking, this broad is gonna be your

    girl friend ? Snap out of it for fucks sake. Listen, it is

    classic move. She gets guitar boy back by the ultimate power

    move, She bones you, there by one upping him. right, she

    humps the singer. In the end she gives both of you the kiss

    off and leaves the band in turmoil for her trouble……… I

    gotta say I applaud her audacity………though she scores low

    in originality.

    sheep - what do you think our guitar player would say ?

    wolf - would we be having this conversation if you really

    cared ?

    sheep - ( indignant ) you know he would do it to me !

    wolf- no doubt, without thinking twice.

    sheep - he will try and fuck anything with a heartbeat.

    wolf - and a few things with out…….

    Wolf - look, here is the down and dirty, crazy sex for all

    the wrong reasons.  Weigh that against your guitar player

    possibly beating your ass, he never trust you again and

    stops talking to you. On second thought that could go into

    the positive column actually. The way I see it is simple,

    this whole situation boils down to lose a friend vs

    potential “ best of ” highlite reel fornication.

    sheep - this is by far the best looking girl guitar boy has

    ever gone out with. Why is he running around on her ? For

    fucks sake did you see those girls he took up to his room ?

    Wolf - he is absolutely pathological when it comes to

    vagina , never under estimate the power of strange pussy.

    Sheep - I think I gotta say no - it is just to crazy

    wolf -  wait, your saying no ?

    sheep - You think I should say yes ? it is complicated

    suddenly ? ( angry ) if this were flipped around He would so

    do it to me!

    wolf - Are you sure your not just sexually frightened of

    that girl - Intimated - performance anxiety perhaps

    Singer - ( indignant ) no……. not a chance

    wolf - shit ! I would be if I were you……… with her motives,

    any damn thing could happen in your bedroom.

    Singer - umm…. .I gotta call her back

    Wolf - she will wait, trust me.

    Singer - are you fucking with me ?!

    Wolf - come on, this is way to serious to fuck around.

    Really, you really want to know what I would do…………………..o.k.

    You should have her up to your room. Pull out all the

    stops, ,tell her your kinky and you wanna play games, run

    with the whole singer thing and put on a big show. Enjoy the

    hell out of yourself and tie her up in the process, she will

    love it. Give her the high hard one and when you have

    wrapped up your man business leave her tied up and call down

    grab guitar boys room.  Tell him you have to see him right

    away. When he gets there you can show them both who they

    have been truly dating. For the first time they can really

    see who each other are. Really you have done them a favor.

    As a matter of fact here is a huge chance they will get back

    together or, guitar boy will seriously want to fight you.

    Either way it will work itself out from there.

    sheep - are you out of your fucking mind !

    wolf -  too over the top ?

    sheep -   jesus man what is wrong with you.

    wolf - look, it is perfect. Frankly it is a master piece.

    You get your freak on, old girl learns a lesson and guitar

    boy gets gets a black eye for behaving like a scoundrel. He

    isn’t the only one who can act like a dog. This is a great

    opportunity for you to flex your singer muscle and show

    dominance over the group as it’s leader. really everybody

    wins. You just gotta have the balls to pull it off.

    sheep - Your fucking crazy!  What if……. um….Should I call

    guitar boy and tell him first ?

    Wolf - ( sarcastic ) hey that sounds like a great idea. What

    I think you should  remember is the only two people in the

    whole  world who are gonna know about this… are you and me

    and I aint saying shit to nobody.

    sheep - really ?  Alright I’m calling her.

    wolf - hey you know if the guitar player starts beating you

    I cant jump in and break it up. At least not until it is

    bloody enough to effect our ability to do shows………

    ( dial tone )

    NARRATOR :

    The wolf unplugs the phone from the wall and kills the lights. the sound of rain

    taps the windows.  The brilliance of downtown gives his room a mellow glow. The

    wolf feasts on the weakness of the sheep.  Closing his eyes and with a gentle smile

    the wolf draws power from the mischief and enjoys the idea of himself as a

    whirling dervish of subtle mayhem.  The dog and the sheep dance at the end of

    the puppeteers strings and into the wolfs dreams………..

    PART 2


    The Take away  :


    Q. am I going to sleep with my best friends girl friend.

    A. ?

    The answer to this question has to be a reflex before the

    opportunity presents it self.  One needs to know where their values lie

    before the pussy is actually staring them  directly in the face.  the almighty

    power of the yoni is never to be underestimated and certainly never to be

    trusted.  This is serious business, for as rock star there will be a lot of rogue

    vajayjay throwing itself your way.

    PART 3


    The white letter ( from the author )

    The White Letter remains a vehicle by which I can convey my thoughts or views to SELF

    MADE  Commanders on subjects of current interest. These letters are not intended to supplant or

    duplicate current SELF MADE directives.  If the topic requires long term attention, it will

    become the subject of, or be incorporated in, an appropriate directive.

    The sheep ( omega )

    Wait for me

    Sheep have a strong instinct to follow the sheep in front of them. When one sheep decides to go

    somewhere, the rest of the flock usually follows, even if it is not a good “decision.” For example,

    sheep will follow each other to slaughter. If one sheep jumps over a cliff, the others are likely to

    follow. Even from birth, lambs are conditioned to follow the older members of the flock. This

    instinct is “hard-wired” into sheep. It’s not something they “think” about.

    Omegas:

    The Omega of the pack is lowest ranking wolf, only higher then the pups. The Omega is

    usually a wolf that is either very new to packlife and still learning or a wolf that has been

    lowered in rank due to wrong actions. They are usually given the responsibilities of

    ‘puppy-sitter’, watching over the cubs during group hunts and making sure they don’t

    wander into the forest. The Omega may even growl or nip at the learning pups, teaching

    them the Way of the Pack and their place within the hierarchy. Ironically, other adult

    wolves may growl or nip at the Omega in the same manner for the same reasons. Still

    what seems to be ‘bullying’ is much more complicated than it appears. If a pack’s

    survival depends on the acceptance of hierarchy, then it is crucial to learn this well and

    early.

    The singer in the dialog above is a sheep and an omega. As the

    lead singer, His natural ability along with the industry standard have

    thrust him in the position of leadership. This leadership position is

    bestowed without regard to weather the individual has the slightest

    capacity for the job. Much of rock n roll is pure instinct. all the homework

    and influence in the world can rarely correct an artist with poor instincts,

    Regardless of the size of talent. The fact that one is dominant in one

    specific area of the science does not automatically mean that that

    individual has the capability to dominate in all areas of the science.

    Any pack that has an omega in the position of an alpha is bound for chaos

    and a general lack of success. When the sheep tries to captain,  This

    invariably leads to a musical group having a prolonged and constant

    identity crisis among a maelstrom of problems.

    The dog :

    Pack Members:

    Not all wolves hold positions, either for being new additions to the pack or not having

    defined their abilities yet. The Alpha(s) take great care in selection of which position a

    wolf will be allowed to maintain. As the pack members gain time in the pack, their

    actions will dictate if they are to be advanced.

    the guitar player in our story fits the roll of the dog to

    perfection. Behaving as though he is a young teenage boy who, having been

    cut loose in a vulva flavored candy store, has his hands in all the jars at

    once. Clearly he will insert himself, sans discretion, into any orifice that

    winks Into his horizon.

    In short the guitar player has achieved the allusion of rock, but

    not rock itself. In the case of this dogs behavior it is anemic in its lack of

    ability to break ground or provoke thought. True to his nature as a pack

    animal the dog is a follower and without the presence of an Alpha animal

    quickly becomes a burden to himself and those that surround him.  The

    dogs strength comes from the middle of the pack lifestyle and living in the

    den of mediocrity. The creature finds comfort from cliche and repetition.

    The SELF MADE philosophy and its goal rejects the dog as an outdated and

    inferior behavioral model. However the philosophy does except the dog and

    its role as a vital part of the greater rock n roll eco-system.

    Outlier effect :

    There is, strangely enough, a twisted positive component to the

    guitar players behavior. One that at first is not obvious.  One that qualifies,

    in a strange way, as to draw ones sense of admiration.  It turns out that the

    guitar players stunted emotional development has created for himself, a

    pathological pelvic need for vaginal volume. This results in a lowering of

    the general standard for female fuck-ability across the board.  The defect

    inversely benefits Girls both young and old who, regardless of body mass

    index now have what was here to now an unthinkable experience, the

    ability to be on the receiving end of rockstar prick.

    The wolf ( alpha  )

    Alphas:

    The Alphas are the most dominate and respected wolves of the pack. If these two

    Alphas are not given the respect that they deserve, they will demand it, and if it comes

    to fighting, so be it, for disrespect will not be tolerated. If these two Alphas see that

    another wolf is not getting respect that they deserve, then they will see that that wolf

    does get the respect that he or she deserves. The Alphas try to know what has been

    going on between members of the pack and, moreover, between members of other

    packs; they try to “keep up with the times.” Alphas have the final say in all decisions,

    and it is their duty to do what is good for the pack. Even in personal decisions, they

    must do what is best for the pack. This includes hearing the opinions of all the others

    and making a decision based on all circumstances. They usually decide what goes on

    at any given time in a pack: hunting, exploring, meetings, etc. These two are the most

    responsible and reliable wolves of the pack. The female is in charge of females, and the

    male is in charge of the males; however, both Alphas will be equally respected by all

    wolves, regardless of gender, age, pack, etc.

    Through out the kingdom of rock n roll the animal packs run

    wild. predators from every direction fight for territory and position in this

    forest of fame. Howling,  these vocal beasts mark there creative

    landscapes.

    In this story the wolf,s interaction with the sheep we have An

    example of an animal who’s steely eyed devilment make a toy out of his

    prey, reminiscent of a cat casually playing with a freshly dead mouse. True

    to his breed our wolf is in constant motion searching for prey. An

    opportunistic feeder,  the first sign of weakness by an individual and, that

    individual becomes targeted as prey. Weather through straight forward

    aggression or subtle manipulation, the predator moves with purpose and

    cunning and will never pass up an opportunity to dominate the field.

    LUNG CANCER 1

    Posted in: Writing

    LUNG CANCER

    part 1

    a piston inhale followed by a forced exhale creates a clockwork rattle through the interior space.  the japanese robot breathing heavily in the corner is the oxygen machine helping my mother stay alive. it is 3:58 am, first night home from the hospital. after having a third of her lung removed the women is cancer free. modern science makes it possible to be back home in your bed with in four days of prying open your chest and carving up the slop that must be lung tissue.

    blurry eyed sitting on the couch i type. to my left are half a dozen metal canisters, two and a half feet tall and  8 inch in diameter. these canisters fit in A two wheeled metal stroller with a single handle for convenient pushing. This is my mothers new appendage like an arm or a leg, she will wheel her oxygen with her everywhere she goes. a plastic tube wrapped around her ears and bifurcating her face laterally as the tube finds it’s final destination in her nose.

    staring at the oxygen i decide to try it out and hook my self up ……… i have writing to do, my agent wants to know what this book is about and when she is gonna get whatever the hell i am writing. My lawyer wants to know why everything i write is so bitter. he say,s where is the like able guy i see on t v.. i have decisions to make, i have deadlines to meet. i am exhausted and in the end, i am footing the bill for this very expensive air my uninsured mom suddenly needs, why the fuck not tie in and boost up a bit.

    as a drug addict somethings never change. for example, earlier tonight while i was standing in line at the pharmacy i spent that time creating different scenarios to steal my moms pain medication. i had just finished a plan to ration half her dope for my self then subdivide my half and sell it on the street. i was just pocketing the imaginary cash when the pharmacist asked if a generic brand of oxycotton would be o k, boy would it. currently i have 13 years sober but my brain works exactly the same as when i was at my highest - from a file drawer deep in my head i hear David Byrnes talking head saying “ same as it ever was, same as it ever was “.

    blood symphony in B minor

    1. Opening montage - wide shot - daytime - grey - snow covered forest
    2. V.O. ( adult augustus )

    The land of our fathers descended into a period of the deepest vulgarity. At its center was its leader, radiating stupidity and death in every direction.  There became no mystery as to why the universe hates us so much.  We were arrogant enough to think the gods needed our help.  A religion as dark as the devil himself had taken hold and once its steely fangs developed the lust for blood, there was no end.

    1. Ext scene

    A Burning village is scattered with small piles of dead bodies. A ragged and filthy German soldier uses rusty pliers to extract the gold teeth out of a dead mans skull. Commander Klaus in full SS officer uniform, casually strolls into the scene He drinks from a bottle of wine and wears an eye patch with a bandage underneath, indicating a recent wound. He has brown hair, a brown eye,and his olive complexion is anything but Nordic.

    Klaus

    Would your Furher approve of this behavior?

    1. Ext scene

    Filthy German soldier drops the pliers and gold teeth and jumps up to salute.

    Filthy soldier

    Hiel Hitler !

    klaus

    ( dismissive ) Take me to pick up commander Henrich’s team.

    1. EXT SCENE

    Klaus jumps into the front seat of the half track vehicle and slams the door.

    1. Ext scene

    Cut to : The tailgate of the half track drops and freezing German soldiers start rushing to jump into the mobile shelter.

    1. Ext scene

    The filthy German soldier pours thick black coffee into crude cans held by Commanders Henrich and Klaus.  The men take turns standing by the tailpipe of the half track in an attempt to warm themselves by the engine.

    Henrich

    footprints

    klaus

    I’m missing two jews and all you have is footprints !

    Henrich

    I do not have a taste for it. You do not need me. Send for Mienhardt and his dogs.

    Klaus

    ( Klaus pointing at his injured eye ) You’re the one with all the medals for marksmanship.  Blame your father,  What a perfect soldier he trained you to be.

    Henrich

    (Drinking coffee while rhythmically tapping his fingers on the mug.)

    1. Scene - A - flash back - deer hunt

    A beautiful female deer struggles to get off the ground She has been visibly shot.

    1. Scene - B - flash back

    Henrich is a boy. His father has taken him deer hunting and is instructing him on how to finish his first big game kill. His father whispers in his ear as Henrich cries while watching the deer struggle.

    Henrich father

    Take your time, relax, it must be perfect.

    It must be a shot to the head son.  Instant death is the only mercy you can gives this animal

    1. Ext Scene

    Henrich turns his back and waves off Klaus.

    henrich

    No those two will be a block of ice by midnight. Nothing can survive out here.

    Klaus

    We will finish what we started.

    Henrich

    Do we have to kill every jew ourselves? Even death itself is growing tired of our help…..

    Klaus

    Henrich you are testing my patience.  I am growing tired of your foul moods.  Now lets go.

    Henrich

    Must I remind you, it’s your sloppy work at the village that has my men out in the middle of nowhere freezing to death.

    Klaus

    If every soldier in this army were like me, we would have won this war long ago.

    1. Ext scene

    The last soldier runs to the half track with a shovel. The soldier addresses Klaus with a salute then throws the shovel into the half track full of men. Henrich stops the soldier.

    HENRICH

    Wait,  lift your cap……What is your name?

    Augustus

    Augustus Bruckner sir.

    Henrich

    How old are you?

    Augustus

    Sixteen sir.

    henrich

    Klaus, When did this soldier arrive?

    KLAUS

    Four days ago.  I gave him a solid beating for clarity.

    1. Int scene flashback

    Flash to Klaus shirtless smacking Augustus with the back of his hand. Augustus falls to the concrete floor of a cell naked and shaking violently. Blood pours from his nose. A bucket of water hits him in the chest.

    Henrich

    (Almost to himself) of course you did.

    ( To augustus ) where are you from

    Augustus

    Dresden sir.

    Henrich

    Ah.  Are your parents alive?

    Augustus

    No sir.

    Henrich

    Any relatives?

    Augustus

    Grandfather sir.

    Henrich

    Where?

    Augustus

    After my home and parents were lost in the Dresden firebombing, I traveled to Munich to find him. Never did, the neighbors said he was sent to the Russian front.

    henrich

    Right. Get the sniper rifle.  Make sure you have ammunition. Collect our skis, and do not leave my side.

    Scene

    Klaus sharpens his bayonet with a small piece of soap stone that fits in his palm. The bayonet is unique.  It has a serrated cutting edge and is much longer than that of the other soldiers.  Henrich motions for klaus to step away from the half track to speak in private.

    Henrich

    He is not old enough to have had a woman! Is this what this war has come to?  They send boys to serve in the SS?

    Klaus

    According to his file; homeless, caught stealing food by an SS officer.  The officer tried to beat him and the boy killed the officer with his bare hands right on the street in broad daylight. Impressive really.

    1. Scene

    The roar of the half tracks begins as they lumber away conspicuously. Klaus hangs on to the side of the half track vehicle. He waves and grins as the vehicle rides up a steep hill to the tree line.

    1. Scene

    The half track vehicle is crowded with soldiers. A brief dialog begins.

    Soldier 1 young

    Commander Klaus is insane! Has he always been like this?

    Soldier 2 older

    Listen boy.  You keep your mouth shut. Klaus will kill you for far less than what you just said.

    Soldier 3

    We have watched this routine with missing jews for years now.

    Soldier 4 ( old dog )

    Listen kid.  Have you had a close look at Klaus’ bayonet ? He created that himself.  Only the most vicious of the ancient samurai would use that type of weapon design.  The serrated cutting edge creates a greater exit wound thereby severely increasing the victims pain. It serves no other purpose but the absence of mercy.

    Soldier 3

    Klaus would impale his own mother with that monstrosity.

    1. Scene

    Cut to a view of the truck turning and heading out of view.  Klaus skis into the woods.

    1. Scene

    Henrich and Augustus sit in a fox hole deep in the snow. Henrich  makes adjustments to the sniper rifle and Augustus adjusts their skis. Henrich pulls out a flask, takes a drink, hands it to Augustus who appears unsure.  Henrich waves his hand for him to drink.  Henrich throws the bolt on his rifle open and pulls the cover of the scope indicating the weapons is ready.  He rests the rifle at his side and takes another long drink from the flask. He shivers from the cold, pulls his hood over his eyes, and folds his arms to wait.

    augustus

    Some of the men said you won a medal skiing in Berlin.  Is that true?

    Henrich

    Do you enjoy skiing?

    AUGUSTUS

    Very much.

    Henrich

    Well, it was mandatory for athletes to join the SS in order to compete in the Olympics. It was an optimistic time.

    Henrich

    It wont be long.   Keep your eyes on the field.

    1. Scene

    A wide shot of an expansive snow covered forest.

    Scene

    A loud sharp cracking sound precedes an eruption of snow ( powder ) falling off the low branches of a tree.

    1. Scene

    Posted in: Blog, Photojournalism

    standing over the sleeping body, the boney hands of time reach for the women’s throat. the hands force her panicking head just under the surface , a cruel depth leaving the thinest veil of water between life and depth. clearly she can see life carrying on through the surface tension.  telling her self -  if i could just breath, as she drowns in the fluid of her master piece.
