How do I put this kindly? Well, there’s no way to do it. I am probably, as one of my high school friends told me, one of the whitest people in the world. I am a technical guy, a computer geek, a space nut, fascinated with processes and cerebral complications. I can’t dance, I can’t […]

Snapsongs: “Super Sex” by Morphine

It’s a pretty singular image in my mind: I am hurtling through the High Plains dark on Route 2, the scenic route across Nebraska that evidently includes the pathway of Col. Wm Custer on his rendezvous with destiny. I am driving an elderly black BMW 528e and there’s not much rain hitting the windshield because […]

Tecbrenai

Bright sunlight woke me. I blearily raised my head from my tucked arm, and tensed. I was in the beginning of a bad novel. I was sprawled facedown on sacks of garbage, their dark green plastic warming in the spotty sunlight and emitting their customary fragrance. Concrete gritted under the tips of my shoes. Steel […]

At the Sunset Monsoon

It was long sunset, and the wind was high. The sound from the drezo grove was a vast, encompassing sussuration, at once loud and subtle, and gently modulating in a slow oscillation. Sprinkled in the sound was the pealing of childish laughter. Simone pulled herself from her bitshifting and went to the side window. Although […]

On the Out

Rough days, what’s the economy? Scraping energy to survive. Barely any sun, but plenty of space to collect it. Huge sheets of ice flash-frozen into solar bowls that concentrate dim Jovian sun down to Earthly brightness. Some is reflected through thick fibers to illuminate caves of field greens; oxygen and sustenance in one simple package. […]

Lunar Imposition

Imagine an evening, freshening breeze and deepening shades. Out in the neighborhood, watching the stars flicker between the early-budded twigs. Nearing the horizon, a growing crescent of Moon swings midway two bracketing stars, the crook just a little lower than the intervening line, as if the weight of the satellite was straining a net between.

Külip – “Work It Out”

©1998 Mindhue Studio She saw him on the road shouting at the stars Caught in the headlights of the passing cars He uses her as a shield against the rain She unfolds herself and covers up his pain She was buttoned up so tight she couldn’t see the sky But she stopped to let him […]

Külip – “Veiled Variations”

©1995 Mindhue Studio Impress black dress And its static caress Around you as you talk Phrases as you talk Confess, or repress The impulse to posess Feel the crackle of the shock Resolution is not rock first chorus One lives a life inside onself Confusion is a simple thing Sometimes I demand too much For […]

Külip – “Sparks in a Line”

© 1998 Mindhue Studio Pause a moment and watch the side Bits of glass in the weeds and gravel Glint against the setting sun Cutting along the path I travel I knew a man who took a ride On a molecule he couldn’t spell He told me it was more than fun To count the […]

Külip – “Second Person”

©1998 Mindhue Studio I can lie  to myself, I can lie to everyone else But if I lie to you, I’ve got no one left I bought a liter with a thirty-dollar bill I drank it down and felt a little ill I told myself that the pain would go away But it was waiting […]
