Write a creation story.

Artists and Scientists

March 1, 2009

This is a story about a tribe

these people have a language
but they can’t write
their language is their work
yet they have no stories to tell

when they go to their graves
it’s part of the work

in the wait

of artists and scientists
two words that floated across the sea
they’ve tied them to everything

and they wait.

{replace artist and scientist at your own leisure}

“Write About Things”

February 27, 2009

‘It’s gotten harder to write about things I don’t care about’

Sometimes I write about things people might shy away from or not understand.

The current goal: Write about things that make me laugh.

Of course, I understand the argument that the need for a paycheck might necessitate that we write about things we aren’t inspired by.

“Write About People”

December 11, 2008

“Never write about people who can’t manipulate their destinies.”

“I do write about people who are striving with something and can’t quite get past their own stuff, which would be a proxy for myself because that is the deal with me.”

“And everyday I write about people who someone should have watched, except they’re rich.”

“Whenever I can I’ll write about people who live there, can you imagine living anywhere else?”

“Mostly I write about people who live remote and distant lives.”

“Or conversely, we should only write about people who are obviously evil murderers/corrupt politicians/war-mongers.”

“It is always difficult to write about people who are good.”

“…write about people who spoil the invention called the internet by writing viruses and hacking into systems.”

“I want to write about people who are of substance.”

“You can only write about people you know, resemble you in gender, or culture/skin color/age.”

“I wanted to write about people who appear to be fulfilled and comfortable, but…”

“I still write about people who are outside of the system, but…”

The Neutral Lie

“Good is all that serves life, evil is all that serves death. Good is reverence for life .. and all that enhances life. Evil is all that stifles life, narrows it down, cuts it to pieces.”

“I would like to tell my listeners that I believe today will be a very low point in spiritual energy, lots of clouds…” Sal, I told you to never bring a banana in here unless it was the apocalyp…. huh? Iva? You’re allallerdgic…


“Pepeople, piplease, stistay… withuss..” the announcer is cut off as the minds of herself and the rest of the world finish passing through the grate that had entered their lives unknown.

The final remainder of sapience looses a gray shriek.
The subconscious has many things to play with all at once…

Some lie, tears running over their faces. Others sit, and with a twitch of the brow dream the only dream that could make a god cry…until the rest find them.

“The gods can either take away evil from the world and will not, or, being willing to do so cannot; or they neither can nor will, or lastly, they are able and willing. If they have the will to remove evil and cannot, then they are not omnipotent. If they can but will not, then they are not benevolent. If they are neither able nor willing, they are neither omnipotent nor benevolent. Lastly, if they are both able and willing to annihilate evil, why does it exist?”

As Anonymous As Ever

Craig thumbs a pill through his fist as he approaches the front door step. The door is open, green seeps through the crack. He asks the crack, what is going on? Can I come in?…a sigh from behind the door, “Piss off Craig, we’re not doing that anymore.”…and it’s closed. Craig leaves and doesn’t know what that was for about a week.

The man in the fallout shelter knows what he wants. Everything he could need to supposedly survive and exit, all there. There hasn’t been a nuclear attack, no civil war, and he is dead. Sitting on the shelter’s toilet, a camera records his final pose.

Bonnie and Clyde find themselves finding eachother dead on an exploitative news channel.

Salt and Pepper appear as half of the other digitally and then literally woven together, stop motioning themselves individually both individually crawling into a computer generated grave.

The News, Somewhere 2014
This past Tuesday, another suspect was apprehended by the police of
-NAME DELETED- County. This brings the accumulated number of suspects to an international 43. We had the opportunity to question sargeant -NAME DELETED- regarding one suspect currently held in the city of -NAME DELETED- who may be the one who has orchestrated at least 350 murders these past two years in various countries.

“… !” According to sargeant -NAME DELETED- of -NAME DELETED-, he couldn’t have been assigned a more interesting case. “… .” They have the men under tight surveillance, however without any actual allegations they may all be released.

“… .”

What the sargeant is referring to is the footage of each killing, or rather it’s results. “We are still working out the details, but it seems that he (or they, we really just don’t know anymore) just went around and picked people –sometimes even couples- off the street, drugged them, and produced videos using their corpses. What is confusing to us is that some of them have footage before their death that is mixed in seamlessly with their actual death where the victims appear entirely sober…”

While the above can be ascertained by anyone who watched the videos that made it onto the internet, “We can’t really go into the rest of the details at this time.”

We have received information from several of the victims’ families and friends.

There isn’t a killer. It is a service that is being performed — the ‘clients’ write, sign, and place a copy of their contract with him in an envolope addressed to whomever they wish to send it to. These contracts clear him of involvement in their deaths. The men apprehended have been released as the only names provided by the contracts belong to the clients.

This appears to be the end of the story.

The Documentarians and the documentarians of those documentarians and so on have uneasy jobs – everyone else has a job or career as a cook, journalist, x, and they have to cover all of it as well as each other. Because in a fictional world there is no fiction. What everyone goes home to see during dinner are themselves or someone like them doing what they do. There is no hero and there is no climax.

This is their life and you are a peeping tom looking at something you’ve no right to.
