13 Jun Keep Your Project In The Present; Failures in the past (tense, yo)! ;) #LOVEyou
“I liked your MySpace music!”, she said.
It was 2005. I was a starry eyed kid dreaming of escaping a small (but not so small) city. Flattered, I thanked her and went on my day.
Years have passed.
A career was had; buildings were built; people got cool.
And, so, I suppose that I left because a big fish in a small lake needs more space; wide birth into the great void of potential untapped in random moments of pleasure mixed up with the laxadasical whilwind of common ground we stand upon.
I messed with it; always keeping my failure in the present while my success stayed in the past (tense).
I succeeded yesterday; today, I failed.
Eventually, I learned a simple phrase; conjoined twins of failure/success paradigm.
I am a failure, yesterday. I succeed, today.
Nothing’s new; compliments or criticism; vaccuums born us yesterday; abohored in space without a teething ring to placebo our misplaced lies; we live longer then the day is shortened by the pitch black; see the stars when you close your eyes in the day; open eyes and constellations upon the hour of the witches; bitches, I’m back, said the postcard from Dorinto that HR sent in the mail.

And, yesterday, I am a failure. Today?
