Yep, Still Alive. And Still Haven't Figured Out What For.

Over 40 now. Middle age. Carved out a corner in a house, a house that is part mine/part bank's. Alienated from friends, family, world. Watching 4 walls breathe. Checking their pulse. Tossing flaming fireballs into the void, listening for a splash that never comes. Time still ticking away as always, driving kids upward toward adulthood, and me toward old age. I am no vampire. No eternal life will save me from this slow entropy. Snot-nosed punks get taller, grab the reigns of power, and I feel old. I want to cut them all down to size, but I don't want them on my lawn. A sucker is born every minute, but there's a new brand of sucker now, it seems. Or have I just forgotten what being one was like? You never remember being a sucker. You only remember that first moment of awakening and everything after. They'll never know a world where all things are turned off, a world where the crickets speak wisdom in the blackness, facing away from the sun...staring off toward the abyss. A world backlit by a low-hanging moon, with silhouettes of cedar trees against the Milky Way. The 60-cycle hum of humanity permeates every quiet corner and rattles the lucid dreamer to sleep, while the neighbor's smart meter radiates the brain and bones.

I sense that you haven’t carefully thought about your audience. Or, for that matter, what your point is. Nail those things, and the words ought to follow.

Liked it.
Human incredulity at how inane our existence is, is hard to grasp. Our brain’s are programmed to not quite believe the utter blankness and noanswerableness (sic) of our existence.
OK. To put the cat amongst the pigeons ( quaint English saying), the only possible answer to this continual madness of earthly being, is Jesus and his message. There I have said it, and woe is me.

They've broken you... They've broken me too.

It's sad, but we can do nothing to change the world, I joined the muck.. Even if you did, you wouldn't get to enjoy it.. Sad.

Good to hear you're still alive though.

You still try to sound like a tormented artist though...even over 40.

Glad to know that you didn't meet an early and violent end. Hope you are glad too.

Better than anything perkman has ever written, or will for that matter.

I think Smithers picked me because of my motivational skills.
