Weakness

A poem by Moony Thinker

Payphone phone is broken at the handle, resting half way upon the metal ledge with the cords exposed and frayed.

It has broken:
Doors,
Walls,
Plastics,
Metal,
Wood,
And bones.

Leaving imprints upon
Everything and
Everyone;
Though never marking
Any skin
But my own.

The aftermath of each
Destructive eruption
Leaves behind a reminder
Under my skin that
I became weak…
Again.

Bones,
Skin,
Ligaments,
And tissue…
I am weaker
Each time
By this
Self-destruction.

One of my largest flaws is that I tend to fixate on the resolution for something even if my thinking is clouded by frustration.

This frustration will boil into outbursts of anger against an inanimate object. These outbursts are rare but when they do happen I tend to hurt myself.

We all have flaws, we all get frustrated, but hopefully next time I will remember that as this boiling builds I will instead just walk the fuck away.

Be well, my friends.

Hey my friends!

I am starting another art project. This one is focusing on artists of all kinds where I interview them. I plan to make a series of these interviews and to call them collectively Dreaming While Awake. The point of these interviews is to better understand the artist’s focus, discipline methods, hopes, dreams, projects, and what they are moving towards.

For those interested, please reach out to me through one of my various connections shared in my LinkTree down below!

Thanks!

A eight panel, lift up, rectangular wide but square shaped window glowing with incoming light into a darker space impeding seeing outside from the distance the picture is taken. The walls are scrapped and peeling of paint and wall sections; with the left side we are facing exposed brick.

A collection of natural images such as the ground of a forest, desert extending higher through the natural layers of our existence (moving through the trees, to the mountains, sky, then stars) showing our place in this reality of current.
A collage with different pieces added focusing on the discipline of a person and why discipline is the importance to achieving anything great.
