At the venue in Iceland tonight.
I asked Ragga if I could use this piano in the show.
She said, “Sure if you like. It is Sigur Ros’s.”

        is if humanity has a chance
        I can help with that.

                Even good hearts know
                how to turn bad touch and genocide into clichés
                just to make room for more comfort.

                  I choose to politely ask myself to step aside if I am in my own way.
                  If I do not get out of my own way
                  I choose to call a friend who will have me removed.

                      This is a nonfiction account of a relay race to the light.
                      I don’t claim to be properly cross-referenced beyond the self-indulgence or noble aspirations but I have a good feeling I’m on the right track.
                      I am still very much unfolding from a memory of ransacked truths.
                      Openly human.

                      I can fit any word into my mouth and speak it clearly.

                        Maybe Désirée

                        December 19, 2014

                        Last night I moved into my new Holland home for three weeks.
                        It’s from the 1400’s.
                        There’s a river and a Christmas tree.
                        It’s five+ stories to myself.
                        I haven’t explored the fifth floor because I didn’t find it until 4am and, well….
                        I did find this new little friend in a nest with tiny eggs in its hand
                        behind a wee door downstairs.

                        I’m waiting for a 7-year-old friend in Michigan to name it.
                        Jon (Danielle Plunkett), what we gonna name it?
                        Igford? Grizzly? Burrito? Tank?
