Alternate Versions

Striated grooves dug into thighs, hands pressed in waffle iron, syrup poured on flesh, no eating, just waiting. There is a Cosmic Chicken that rules all events which are pre-destined. This Chicken has no will, no body, but is a pattern of chicken, a pattern of accumulation of vibrations and waves. We will share speech, fuse with each other, and find intervals that belong to neither you or me. The verbs come, and one action is replaced immediately by another. This is our link to the world, although we are hiding.

Morning MM. I am thinking of french toast at the moment. I would like to buy a waffle iron that has the imprint of hands.

krixfort said...

why the hiding today MM? Are you on the lam?

mountain man said...

Hi PD and Krix. I am wanting to hide from the meandering qualities of life. From people. I cannot help it, it is my hermit-muskrat way. Hide, hide, hide. I need to sweat profusely and clear my head out. Thoughts and anxieties are like maggots crawling around my heart and stomach. It feels off in there.

sloth said...

MM, hello and hi. Movers came to take a giant relic out of the log this morning. Sloth is a sleepy sloth. The Cosmic Chicken is benevolent today. Small creatures will be sacrificed to the pattern of chicken.

sloth said...

MM, it sounds like you need a swim.

mountain man said...

Hi Sloth. I hope they were taking your relic somewhere nice.

mountain man said...

A swim sounds good. Any kind of intense movement.

fairy butler said...

i can smell the cosmic chicken and the waffle syrup. It is forming a cumulus cloud, nearing my pen, threatening dumps. MM, sometimes hiding is the only way. It is part of my way of life, the hiding. It is ok.

postmoderndebunker said...

I would like to hide also. I want to enjoy the deep sleeps.

mountain man said...

Fairy, under the yay for painting post, I responded to you, just so you know.

Hiding and avoidance. That's me!

fairy butler said...

ok, gotcha. i feel I can speak for all of us when we say we heart artistic thoughts!! it is one of the few pluses about coming to the beige, the others being lunch, friends, paycheck. There are always naysayers with rules and criticisms. AT is an excellent blog. It is cool it was deemed "of note."

mountain man said...

Thanks Fairy. It's ok, just made me feel weird, a reminder that there are people who may look but not comment and the audience is wider than we think sometimes, you know? I mean, Arizona? I don't know anyone there.

fairy butler said...

yes, agreed. I just replied to the previous post about my experience. It's almost like the longer it goes on and more complex and involved it gets the weirder it gets for outside folks to get into the ether. I feel like it is so anonymous most of the time, but then, I guess not. ?? Let's forget about that though. me thinky.

sloth said...

Yes FB, forgetting is just the thing. Artisticthoughts is a superlative blog, and has added great meaning to the life of Sloth. And all blogs have a "chat-room" aspect, if comments are allowed. So what? You can join in or not. Don't like the format? Go start your own blog. This is called free speech. Which can be sometimes the form of poetry, sometimes nonsense, sometimes chit-chat, sometimes humor. Etc.

wala said...

longlife to mm and artisticthoughts. must process you like UHT milk to keep fresh even without refrigeration. i enjoy my visits here immensely. the threads take me to many unknown and smiling spaces. sometimes i dont want to barge in a comment and choose to be a happy people inspector and smiling spectator sattelite. the heat in arizona must have melted some brains.

mountain man said...

Monster Spank, you are right about the Arizona heat, I think. Thank you for your kind comments, I love your visits.

bob said...

Arizona is going textbook free, all digital. They think they have harnessed the sands, but tumbleweeds blow in their minds.

mountain man said...

Bob, as we both know, the sands cannot be harnessed, they just will not be.

mountain man said...

Sands are in my squirts today, I am held still by inner core rantings. I am sinking to new lows - comfort drawstring pants are being worn out of doors. I am frightened.

sloth said...

Go see PD's art show- it's a work of gorgeosity!

postmoderndebunker said...

This blog is the best. That "anonymous" blogger is just a tard who is probably jealous of our witt and poetry.

Arghhhhhh

mountain man said...

PD I saw your show. Excellent, excellent. You rule.

sloth said...

We will slicey...

Dilator said...

Go forth into the wind tunnel, is what looking at paintings makes me think. I want to get blown around and forget the real world.

postmoderndebunker said...

Thanks Sloth, thanks MM!

krixfort said...

I heart artisticthoughts, and all connected blogs. Hooray for blogland. Thank you for making today great!

I have been to Arizona. I didn't like it a lot. I got a speeding ticket. That was just my experience.

sloth said...

Their iced tea is pretty good. Nice cactuses, too.

postmoderndebunker said...

My sister lives there...and I've never visited her.

krixfort said...

I agree sloth. Nice cacti. Pretty desert sunsets.

krixfort said...

MM, when will you have your next show?

fairy butler said...

Where is hampaw?

sloth said...

I'll wager that MM is currently at work curating the next go-'round.

Yes, Hammy, where art thou? Are the Sirs running you raggedy? Have they tied you up with coaxial cables?

postmoderndebunker said...

Yeah ham, do you need the slicer?

Anonymous said...

Are you not bored to death of chit chat
fly away home

ham paw said...

Yesterday was foul state of gnashing teeth and pulling hair. A depression brought on by residual beige. NO MORE! will conquor with insolence and sneak friendlies today. Is the slicer prepared?

critic's critic said...

Hey dude anonymous. Obviously not. If you are, then don't read. Smarten up and use your time better with activities that engage YOUR mind.

mountain man said...

Blasted firesquads, sugars! Into the space realm where nothing can catch you!!!!!!

mountain man said...

Let us mourn Mei Mei, beloved panda who died at 36. A ripe age. I love pandas.

postmoderndebunker said...

The slicer is charged and ready for action.

postmoderndebunker said...

good morning MM.

sloth said...

Howdy critters. Why is it cloudy today? Gripe. Maybe the Frialator plan will be rained out... worried.

PD said...

Oh I hope not. o sick of this rain and greyness.
