the true poet dreams being awake

It is in the death flow 9:57 AM Sunday morning. It is wet, rainy, and gray morning. A good morning to blow ones brains out.

I got up this morning around 7:45 AM. I got up made myself a bowl of oatmeal and a fresh pot of coffee. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. I have not read anything this morning because I am wasted.

Carol got home around 8:55 AM. She went downtown to Reader’s World Bookstore to buy some more children’s books and a Sunday edition of the Wall Street Journal. She has gone to bed for the day. She works tonight and then is off till the first week of March 2017.

I am tired today so I plan to do nothing but wait it out.

Last night I made two videos for my BookTube channel and read late into the night from a book titled, “Memoirs Of My Nervous Illness” by Daniel Paul Schreber. Now it is another day to scream into the Void. Will the Void scream back?

I suppose I will close to read some more of the book, “Touched with Fire: Manic Depressive Illness And The Artistic Temperament” by Kay Redfield Jamison. I have really been digging this book. This book has really cheered me up.

"And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen." John 21:25
