Prompt from LizSmalls: Scramble.


 


In case I feel a taste too strong


of freedom from suppress and


haste of sign by sign,


I send a message, 


scrambled from all sides and


mix it in with words


of 'no, I'm fine',


I've lost my mind in


a twisted telephone line.

Make your sea green way to me,


and touch my skin unlike a screen,


but soft and light beyond


that window that we found


our long lost love for none


but us to see.

I lost my cheeks,


in speech and in sign,


I lost my smile, crooked and


slow, but strong with you.


You kept it like


the words I wrote,


and all the plan,


all the promise that we were,


was unfulfilled, the will was gone


and so remote and lost to you,


But not, still not, to me.

My memory is not mine,


and sure, a day lingers for


a solitary second


like a gulp, a glass of wine, then


hastily it breaks


and pours between my fingers.


 


I gladly leave behind the


nights I hate to visit,


and scare away with them, the


nights I hate to lose.


 


So which then do I choose to face?


To ache inside a memory, but


also feel the remedy, or


 


simply wish the worst away,


feel nothing,


just in case.

I know. It seems like an obvious idea. But...


Collaboration is humanity's most important trait.


Ballet is an especially collaborative art form. It needs music, dancers, costumes, a venue, lighting, etc. Often, every work of ballet is the by product of collaboration. (Though really it's just an example of what can be analysed)


Game Theory is a branch of applied mathematics and economics that looks at situations where multiple players make decisions in an attempt to maximize their returns. It's a study of strategic decision making. Specifically, it's "the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers". (Roger B. Myerson)


The Internet has clearly helped collaboration become possible on a global scale, artistically, scientifically, commercially.


Ants are a bold example of nature in working together to survive. The colonies are described as superorganisms because the ants seem to operate as a unified entity, collectively working together to support the colony.


AND there's human-animal collaboration! A population of bottlenose dolphins in Laguna, Brazil coordinates, via body language, with local fishermen in order for both to catch schools of mullet.


 


Just a few examples, but of course there are plenty more to be used in a documentary style, animation (antimation), short stories, songs, all that jazz.

I've been weak.


And I have felt like a feather, clinging on to the


gizzard of some exotic, colourful bird.


I've been hurt.


Torn from the skin after rapid flight,


only to be catapulted aimlessly


through spirals and chambers of wind,


far off the modest ground and


away into the thin, heavy sheet of night.

Kiss me in a turtle shell,


where hidden is haven and


cheeks are kissed and


necks are kissed and


all is so, so well.


Rest your head on my shoulder,


chest, nose, whatever,


Rest.


Kiss me now, and I can tell


you'd have my face unshaven and


stubble kiss or


bristleless or


any other bliss


would be a place to dwell,


and all is so, so well.


Wow.

In the dry silence of the morning,


When each sound becomes a shifting plate,


When each lonely word is gravity itself,


Immersed in the glorious sun's new light,


This is the wonder stood before me,


Calling for the world in wait,


Candidly, the morning calls me,


And with the morning, I ignite.

Dear you,


I want to know you


like I used to,


you know?


Yours,


me.

Tempestuous


was the shot I took of us.


A festival of guesses and guises,


as long and wide as


we care to discuss.


A brute, a cyclone,


a fallacy of honesty that


ground us into dust,


ready to be swept from one another's


clothes, or carried in a gust.


Ever as tumultuous,


ever as tempestuous,


the shot I took of us.

I'm dreaming


I face a house with


my hands stretched out


knowing


that you are inside.


 


Closer is warmer and


warmth finds me through the door


to you.


 


And now I'm dreaming


of you.


And now I'm taken


with you.


And colours form


around you.


 


And closer is warmer and


warmth finds me crossing the floor


to you.


 


I'm dreaming


I'm horizontal, with


your words on my chest,


knowing


that you are inside;


 


that I'm not just dreaming.

The instrumental version of a previous song. I'm thinking of reviving it and giving it some more worthy vocal parts, but I thought I'd upload this RECord just to help out anyone in need of some music.


 


 


I still think about you.
