NANOPROWRIMO # DAY 5: Strange Oceans

By Kilmo

Did scales form on you?

Gills open on on your neck?

As you learned to draw breath?

In the sunlight trapped,

Inside your house,

Dry land’s near now,

The waves shatter and shrink,

Water clears,

And birds fly overhead,

We’ll struggle back ashore,

Onto the sand yet,

To dry,

The memories,

We fed on for a year,

From our backs.


By Kilmo

They found Bill in the graveyard,

Dancing a jig,

With a cadaver,

On questioning,

He said,

It had secrets to impart,

Of buried treasure,

And deals to be struck,

If he sold his worldly goods,

And fed the motor on which,

The city ran,

Bill was happy,

To comply,

His eyes,

Full of dollars,

And more expensive stuff,

He spent the money,

On a printing press,

And hoped for the best,

The last anyone saw of Bill,

He was huddled in a doorway,

With a smart phone,

And a beard,

Lining up fruit,

And gold bars,

For his latest venture,

One the gambler,

Was sure,

Would be the best yet.


French Cinema

by Kilmo

No longer in glorious monochrome,

Featuring surround sound,

And guest appearances,


!!!Your Parents!!!

!!!Your Lovers!!!

!!!Your Friends!!!


From cradle to grave,

Including bit parts,


And panoramas,

As incomprehensible,

As the journey’s rules,

Before the credits roll,

And the temporary visitor,

A befuddled audience of one,

With few answers,

Leaves the house.

Extreme Consumerism: Swimming in Trash — NSTM Planet — The Most Revolutionary Act

Originally posted on Vermont Folk Troth: Human well-being is a singular edge that as a society we seek to promote. […] the high costs of the minimum well-being that we can enjoy today is well-being stolen from future generations. The culture of extreme consumerism brings with it extreme waste and with it the death of…

future daze


So close to the edge last night,

I’m still suffering from vertigo.

Amazing how little neurons in your mind,

Can persuade you that everything

you have ever done…

Has been trite.

It tells you in snivelling stuttering words,

That your children were let down by you,

That your love amounts to a death sentence,

That you have nothing further to offer the world,

And you don’t believe it!

But you do in the underworld

of your sub-conscience…

In those dark recesses

you keep locked up.

So secret is the desire to believe,

That all is pointless,

That you can hear it whispered,

Even through the praise.

I know this bedfellow,

we’ve tangled many times,

but I do not lose faith,

because I have known love,

and nothing is better than that!

Interview 17. Boiteau Thierry


This artists work I got my eyes on recently on instagram…I got fascinated in his skills with making the metal come so “alive”.

He tells me that english is not a language that he is one hundred procent confident with and that I can change errors of his…and honestly, there are some. But I don´t see them as a problem, I understand what he means. So, I will not change anything, I want it to be his own words. So it is not to make anything look funny that I will not (if it is not obvious spelling mistakes) tamper with the answers. Also, I am not always that skilled in language either…

Me: Hello mr. Boiteau! Please tell me a little about yourself, where do you live and work for example?

Boitheau: Hello , my name is Thierry Boiteau , I’m 48 , maried, with 2 children . I…
