where the f*#k is the norwegian of 'ol?
i've been wondering of that fool.

that stupid c#&% is out mastering laps
on the campus board;
pounding the mountain bike
rubber to the rim trail;
and sketching up midnight cracks.

my (2) companies are exploding in output.

my wife gave me the ultimatum of
get clean, or else...

so im temporarily giving up booze,
jogging in the morning,
climbing trees all afternoon,
and cranking out design work in the evening.

life is boring as hell, right now.
my inspiration is caput;
the bank account is overflowing,
the i.r.s. is sending me thank-you and love letters,

my clients are telling everyone they know about me,
my wife still hates me,
my children don't trust me,

all is loose in my life.
all is fragile.

im strung out at point b,
trying to figure out a path back to a.

i never could alphabet backward very well.

life is boring as hell, right now.
my inspiration is caput;

When ur spirits come from a bottle of Jack

And many times uve found urself lying on ur back

Take the time to stare into the queer

By shrug'in off the requests for a beer

Look thru the eyes of the daughters you hold dear

And then your inspirations will not caput, but catapult

Trust is built by time
when so much has fallen
even when that which has fallen rises up from it's knees
the grass is still worn bare where it had so many times landed
now all that was misunderstood must be spoken again

and these words their meaning must sit to grow into truth
until than many who saw the fall are wary to stand there
least the world falls on them
the weight too much to bear

give it time for all that is new to grow
to strengthen a pattern into a good habit

where all that is good waits
all that is good for you to hold
it will grow
now it's time to believe and wait
you will see
Trust is built by time

Goofball goodbye

Sorta sad

The good liver is his own wreword

One reckons negative with repetitious and vice with verse and it was getting so

I hope you don't mind a bar of Thanks for the Memory

Now go explode

Your wife WILL love you again.

Your girls WILL trust you again.

Because you are going to stay of the booze, hard as it will be (and it will be hard).

It WILL be worth it, I promise.

What they said.

Sobriety is my crazy new drug I didn't know I was missing.

Free drugs! Who woulda thought?

And it turns out my wife was right about a few things.

Hey I'm just a lurker but after reading the OP I thought to myself "Please, don't f*#k up now, N."

Seriously rooting for ya over here.

I quit the sauce last autumn and that shook things up tremendously, mostly in a bad way, but it is worth it or will be worth it.

detox is lovely and lite,
im like 5 or so days into
this land with static horizons.

i aint counting, though.
i aint absolute about nothing.
this is only a pitch in my life,
i cant see the end of it and i don't
know nothing of it's difficulty cause i aint ever yet tread it.

f*#k it.
take away my sex. take away my drugs. take away my rock and roll.
i'll have to abide an understandable reality that occurs periphery to this cliche.

i'll do it, only because i have to.
thanks for the encouragement,
though smiles, handshakes and backslaps make me want to vomit
into grandma's picnic basket, where i know she hides the beer under the cookies.

i get home from 4 dry days on the road,
and i gotta get to work now.

im assigned a mid-rise in downtown san francisco,
a sprawling 7 story condo in oakland,
two treetop satelite installs,
one log cabin to construct,
7 hazard tree removals,

and a partridge inna an audible religion.

cheers (can i still mutter that?)

weeg is brutally honest about his feelings and sobriety is rife with all kinds of feeling. Especially when it seems he needs to vent. Having em isn't what marks success or failure. During detox? man that's a crazy time from what I've seen. Find some good folks to spend time with IRL. If you havn't already. Outside support helps.

I may be talkin out my ass here but the basics are I like you weeg and hope the best for you and your family.

the other day paul crawford
and i were watching my daughters
make commendable goes at his campus board.

he's sober, and i admire immensely the paths that he has tread.
he's a brutally honest friend, too; no sugar coated poems or prose or such.
he tells me straight up,
dude, don't f*#k this up.
just don't.

and i'll honor his advice.
and i'll spend well the encouragement that you offer me, here.

my beast inside will hafta go dormant for a spell,
sew his oats with the sluts i house deep down in my brothel.

he'll get all strong and anxious,
and make-a many offspring,
and i'll supress his manic dreams as long as needed.

then one day,
come climbing outta my brain and he'll issue
a seismic smile that'll shake the nearest concrete statue back to life.
and we'll; him and i and the stone statue,
will go unravel the woven skies,
settin free the idle me;
and we'll rip giant holes in the mended mind,
so's that the merry breezes of yesterday
can catch up with the atmospheric void of tomorrow.

ahem.

im hanging onto this crew by a thread.
i wanted to climb up onto that empty cross for the photo
but my wife would let me,
and it's probably well that i didn't
because right now i don't want no admiration upon me.

Good luck, Norwegian. It's a fragile state that you're in. So, you need attention, appreciation and tenderness.

But aside that, it's a fragile state that your family is in. So, they need attention, appreciation and tenderness.
