“CIVETTA DI MINERVA”
civetta di Minerva,
mostri le iridi di bronzo
al calar dell'ordinario ordine
Scrutando nelle anime
che ci fa ardere
o ci consegna all'arido oblio
e di noi stessi
di fronte all'opulento banchetto
degli errori della mia esistenza
cuciti in una rete intricata
di lacrime trattenute
Si palesò il grigio vuoto
nel quale ciondolavo
mucchio di ossa scricchiolanti
come le promesse infrante
persino a Lei
Mi accertai, sorridendo
dell'assenza di quel flebile urlo
soffocato troppe volte,
attutito dal peso
di un ego inconsistente
Voltai le spalle anche a te, animale sacro,
verso la strada già battuta
del mesto abbandono
Eppure di bronzo si tingevano anche gli occhi Suoi..
Many of you know about the wildlife encounter I had at the beginning of the year. (Hit a deer. We were going 65mph at the time.) None of us could have predicted just how that was just a part of a whole lot of fuckery. Not sure who I pissed off so they cursed me to live in interesting times, but here I am.
Between my (now former) workplace going completely bonkers and the continually increasing shoulder/arm/neck pain, I've been strung out on cortisol, adrenaline, and exhaustion both physical and mental. Which is part of why my beloved #Minerva has been taking center stage here. My face was falling off in chunks, my hair in clumps, and my fingernails are so ridged that Matchbox cars could use them for rumble strips.
But I've taken a little time for myself, had an extremely therapeutic visit with my BFF, and today, I had arthroscopic surgery to repair my shoulder, because I was literally tearing myself apart.
Still alive, still a little wobbly, but even as close as I was to having a nice little nervous breakdown, I got mad and determined instead. First stop: state legislature and DHS. Final destination: World Domination.
PINK GLASSES - Got some new pink look-out to the world! This is the little self-portrait I made to go on te @gumclub.nl website. So I thought it would be nice to put here on instagram as well as a profile picture. Have a happy weekend everyone! I'm going up north today to the graduation expo at Minerva academy in Groningen to check out handcut work of my awesome intern from a year ago, the one and only Miss Marije Spronk @pooniefox .
