Cusp This!

Wednesday, October 26, 2005


I really did have every intention of writing something morbid. Then I had a really nice day: like my job, had dinner with a new friend that was full of great conversation, and still have my legs.

So, I guess the most morbid thing I can share (that was talked about tonight) is the entire concept that life is pain. It's always true, just today I see the pain in it's beauty. How could I try to transcend something so pretty and shiny as this pain?

  • i had to leave the house of fashion
    and go forth naked from its doors
    'cause women should be allies
    and not competitors
    i had to leave the house of god
    because the cross replaced the wheel
    and the goddesses were all out in the garden
    with the plants that nurture and heal

    i had to leave the house of privilege
    spend christmas homeless and feeling bad
    to learn privilege is a headache
    that you don't know that you don't have
    i had to leave the house of television
    to start noticing the clouds
    it's amazing the stuff you see when
    you finally shed that shroud

    i had leave the house of conformity
    in order to make art
    i had to be more and less true
    to learn to tell the two apart
    i had to leave the house of fear
    just about as soon as i could crawl
    ignore my face on a wanted poster
    stuck to the post office wall

    i had leave the house of self-importance
    to doodle my first tattoo
    to realize a tattoo is no more permanent
    than i am, and who
    ever said that life is suffering
    i think they had their finger on the pulse of joy
    aint the power of transcendence
    the greatest one we can employ

    this post just reminded me of this song bear.
    it's called "shroud" by ani difranco. currently unreleased
