Warmer the Night – Watt

Every day is a stint at waking early, yet staying up till soft corners of the dawn show their edges.

My mind wanders in between the seconds and hours of late mornings and nighttime.

It travels across the people I know, weaving elaborate fantasies of how they can function in our shared dimension. And when I print it in sounds, it flies unseen and unheard, like if a firefly grazed amid swans.

It laughs in lockdown, staring at the TV. Crazed at the bottom of the jailing well, unraveling the walls brick by brick, lie after lie, to soar to the surface once more.

When at the surface, touched with dirt from along the journey, it ties every loose piece with the truth.

Another day is another picture, blurred by yesterday.

Where do I go now? In the absence of meantime, and the penitentiary of the earth’s possibilities.

Somewhere or someplace.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
