Pre-loaded

Locked and loaded,
primed pump, me
ready for tomorrow
today, yesterday

confused, time
slipped into the future
passed past
put out to pasture

memory not
what it should be
memories not
what they should have been

prepared for the unprepared,
needs repair
let it go
find it again

tomorrow

I don’t know where that came from. I was just about to tell you all about how I was just gushing with haiku yesterday that I wrote two more than I was supposed to, so I preloaded them to publish today and tomorrow. That may mean that my blog here is a little less impromptu. Today, I see that is even less the case than I thought.

Anyway, here is today’s haiku: dissipation.

Today’s card:

VIII. Adjustment.

There isn’t much to say, other than this used to be called Justice. It’s all about balancing the scales, so if you say to-MAY-to, I’m going to say to-MAH-to. Today, at least. Tomorrow may be another story. I can be capricious like that. It’s all about making adjustments to find that balance, a harmony between what you want and what you can have, between instinct and reality. I’m about to make a phone call that is going to require a balanced head if I’m going to get what I want.

    Time is a funny thing. Gotta transcend the concept of grandfather time and follow the way of his granddaughter. No more crying tears of fury, time to turn the tables and make time your bitch. Kairos kyria, kimber alkimiya 🦄

    That’s what I write when I’m not AM. I didn’t expect that to splurt out this morning. Not sure what to do with it. Probably best to just keep it hidden here in my anonymous blog that nobody (not named K) reads. Yes, I have a few followers, but of the 15 or so that like each post, I wonder how many actually read them … although I can count on #1 itinerary to comment “Great post!” if I tag it travel.

    I think my interpretation had something to do with it being lunchtime. (I am now eating a chocolate chip cookie.
    *sated*

      I confused myself and frustrate my inability to be sure of what I try to say. Attempt to encode my words with multiple layers of meaning that I mean all of them as I say them and people to read/hear any layer I left. I need food and nothing is satisfying. I will go grab some cookies. nomnomnom

        I am a state of confusion incarnate, still looking for someone to decode me, my layers linear in a multiplication of (in-)discrete ideas jammed together seemingly without transition or forethought.

        oh my sweet, you can only decode yourself. you need an anchor upon which to impale yourself and from here you can spin, bounce, and direct yourself to the places you will come to know as old homes

    Reminds me of an old comeback line from uni. Sit and spin. Then, it had a painful connotation. I’d rather spin the bottle.
