1  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Key on: December 08, 2018, 11:27:28 PM
The oak frame towers and broods with gold gleaming at its belt. A keyhole buckle sparking possibility and mystery, beckoning your right hand. Trembling like leaves ravished from trees you sweep an arm through cinnamon air and hurtle to a click. Time clings to the suspense. Your breath curls into a ready fist and the song of movement swings slowly open. Light unfolds. It trails the heavy

He exposes his lips to a desert drip. A searing sun of flavor rolls in after a yawn. Slippers wiggle over carpet and ice grips the windows. Skeleton trees squirm against blues-whinny wind like drunks at a jazz bar leaning towards the floor. He buries into a chair. Eyes lounging low. Scanning the steam and nothing beyond. Heat growls from a vent and foams into the room to usher him to slumberís gates. A trap meant to share his coffee with his lap. And it works pretty good, thinks his pajamas.

Wings glitter and beat. A slender pipe body ghosting and hovering across the pond lazing in shallow ripples. A momentís flash of splash and the small ghost is gone. Some excited stomach is digesting on the descent through waterís envelope. Under murky sunlight bumping itís way through the maze of waves the reach of claws and smooth-rock feet torpedo towards the shore. A hard jacket clinging to its body. Weathered and strong.
6  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Tissue on: November 23, 2018, 09:12:46 PM
A tissue is a cloud wiping the yolk from the sky, smearing the spray of dawn, day, and dusk over her watering eyes of a Texas countryside. We melt our feet across leaves and dirt strolling for a breath to slump our shoulders to. A small, faintly present star of fingers curls around mine and sneeze games of pretend against our tree and insect backdrop. Hold, release, disappear into the painting of Texas memory. A single drop of time gone as soon as a cloud loses itís billowing body to the invisible sigh of the atmosphere. Scent of bark and highways swishing behind the horizon. ďCome on,Ē

A thousand flies tethered in the air. Each a melody of a dream. You relax the walls and open your eyes, and the aroma of the sky floods in. Crashing into hopes and frights foaming and rocking and barely steering clear of wave after wave of unrelenting boom. The muffle of drowning. The saltwater fear. The pound of a heart under a leaking roof. A vessel of a head, fighting with oared arms of persistence. And you stare at the expanse for one brief, clear moment. An endless horizon of possibility. Chopped to pieces by giants of the sea

10  Metaphors & Similes / Metaphors & Similes / God is a barista... on: October 29, 2018, 01:39:05 AM
God is a blue aproned barista, and as you ascend in your plane, you drink in whip cream clouds aerosoled over a sweltering cup of Texas desert.

Fat block numbers count down, departure descending toward me. The horizon of time puncturing my temple with the profound chuckle of a headache. A cackle of thirst. A tap on my shoulder from altitude. Onyx shoes glint over cat grey socks and airport travelers waft behind me, a procession of adventurers rolling squawking luggage into a fading oblivion of out-of-sight out-of-mind. I cross my legs. They hold their breath over a gold-green ottoman and juke for comfort. Blood un-damming and sun-warm refreshment being sipped up by my toes.

That was great. To me it seems a little short for ten minutes, as if you're thinking rather than "diving" but the words that are there, are great.

Thanks, Casper!
And you're spot on about it being short for ten minutes.
I play fast and loose with the rules for object writing for the sake of making it fun for myself (i.e., continued enjoyment and all that jazz).
Many times I'll roll in the field of sense-bound language so much that words are clinging to me by the end.
-And then there are times, like this one, where I grab my flashlight and start spelunking deep into the mouth of a few sense-bound metaphors to return with something pretty to hang on to.

I'm glad you dig the words!  Cheesy

Stories and compliments are marbles in mouth jumbled, squeaking out of my cracked adolescent throat.
Love that! Cheesy

The whip-crack haunts your skin for a long lingering moment before the sky empties its swelling belly and the dance of ten thousand skeletons clatters onto the roof above. The fat of your thumb smudges the window and you press your eyesight into the distance now rolling and warping in front of you. Youíre waiting for your father. But you donít see him. A hungry belch of clouds invades the world above. Black. Like burnt horror ready to sweep your little town away with the mud sputtering and oozing outside. The load deepens and the dance of skeletons becomes a march. Heavy swords wrought iron swinging at your roof. Enemies
