perusing the reedlj

I found an interesting thing...

SU Dave!

Word, I haven't seen him in forever since he got kicked off campus (well, maybe a couple times). I may have to join him in his gleeful representation by this Onion Article.


Ithaca was great. Brendan was a host above and beyond the call of duty. It was good to see him again. Brendan always has interesting music to share. When we went out, I smoked so many rolled cigarettes my left hand started to become cowardly. Bad ryan.

Later today Meg comes into the city. Late tonight, I'll be exhausted yet hopefully ready for more. I didn't sleep much this past night, but then, I slept on the bus as well, so I am fairly napped and currently quite awake. Seeing Meg should be good since I only saw her once in my busy state earlier this summer. Having everyone start to return makes me think about how it will be when school starts again and I'm not there, and maybe not jobbed either. I might have to audit a class and wait to see if I can get the digital/photo lab tech/slide library assistant job starting in the spring. We'll see. Maybe I'll find something temporary in the meantime, that is, if I can. Let me further expound- Portland's job market sucks, but I'm in a state of not caring. I just need to put myself on a schedule. I just need to figure out why I'm not as able to self motivate as well anymore...although, I did write the third poem in my new book project last night. All the titles came first, after all the book title is "Sing Song for Mynah".

little deeper

little deeper stepped outside,
and sighed in the heat. little
deeper needed some absent

he said he was just going
to the store, half a block
down. figured he'd be

so i just sat and waited
for him. sat and looked at
my nails, the cuticles had grown

i sang myself a tune, fidgeted
with a loose piece of cement,
drank cool lemonade and looked

when he returned i perked up
again. i leaned back and
adjusted my shorts. i just

little deeper sat and told
a story. once upon a time
there was a seed.

Dude, which one was Ryan Dunn? I remember the name but only ever got Ragsdale as a last name for Ryan burned into the memory banks.

I know this name. Fuck!

They're saying maybe next year I could legally go to Renn Fayre. I'd like to suggest to "them" that they can legally kiss my ass way before then if they like.

I feel bad I can't place your name! What the fuck! Clue me in dude!

Hmm, I ran Coffeehaus and used to look like any one of these characters.
I've changed my hairstylings a lot.

Don't feel too bad though, we talked a little, but not all that regularly. But, it's good to see you're still kickin' it.

I actually remember a bunch of those faces. I want to think that you were a CHVNKer maybe, or one of the kids I'd see partying at the Den or of course the Fridge. I could be wrong. I do remember the face though.

Right on! We live! RAAAAAH!

Are there lots of Reedies on your friends list who would remember me? I've been back in Portland since November after a year and a half in NY and California. I run into friendly folks on Woodstock now and then but would appreciate the chance to reform the Reed army I remember from when I was SU Dave.

I'm still an out of work graphic designer, so that onion article was pretty much manna from heaven for me.

I like your website by the way, and the poems are rockin.
