Walking  the long way from the bus
on the way to the bar
to meet someone for the first time
the night distracts me
I enjoy it so much I keep walking and get lost
Partially on purpose
needing some more time alone before being social
before putting on my brave and happy mask
it is cold and dark
with a light mist coming from the sky
and I am alone
Besides the music in my ears the night is quiet
I slowly find my way back
to where I am supposed to be
taking extra time to get there
stopping to notice every leaf, every twisted branch i see
A block away from the bar
my pace slows as I look up
at the sky
There is not a single visible star out
If there was
if the sky was covered in twinkling lights
and magical constellations
I would have forgotten my purpose that night
I would have kept walking alone in the dark
my mind wandering and
soaking in all the beauty and sadness and life as I did so
But the sky was dark
so I opened the door
hoping to find stars inside.

My goals are as follows:

I will write one poem a day(or more, of course).

I will take care of my health.

I will finish Ugly Head, the movie I am working on with the talented David Evan.

I will start my own Puppet business.


Simple and good. Yes sir.
