The Ins

Insincerity and insecurity, one caused by the other, neither realizing which starts first. We cloak ourselves behind and find the way around the insecurity, when we are together. The insincerity is dropped but as we part it is assumed the insincerity continues and it is shameful how we let that wall down. The kitten claws my lap, indifferent to my pleas. As indifferent as you. My voice must be infinitesimal although I hear myself speak, perhaps only in my mind. Indefinite time frames shrink my voice and my irritation is intense. Which is the infidel? The one that betrays their mate? The one who betrays themself? The pagan, the saint, the sinner? Intentional disregard of confusion, is that a sign or is it really just disregard? Are you really so inane or are you just really good at ignoring? Perhaps Iā€™m like the inch-worm, interesting to watch but not something you want crawling on your skin nor under. Infatuation is fed, not smothered, as insane notions should be. Information has been passed on a one-way street and I make no further inquiries to obtain insight. Meandering along this path with no real destination, waiting only for the inevitable, wondering if our differences are too incongruent to be overcome. Indecisiveness at your insolence leaves me like the kitten on my lap, indolent, tired of clawing, and pacing and purring and narrowing my eyes against the sun. I put on my sunglasses and ponder the infinite.

    Um...you are good. Do you do "spoken word?" I'm sorry if that info is on your blog. I haven't finished going through your archives either.

    No, I've never done "spoken word" although I'm a big fan of it. The first "spoken word" CD I got was the one with Viggo Mortensen's "Recent Forgeries." I can credit Viggo with introducing me to prose and leading my poetry in a whole new direction.

    those who like spoken word should check out Henry Rollins' the Human Butt. It's old, but it's brilliant.

    I echo jp on this particular occasion -- I'm always eager to see what you've posted today, Inanna. Really enjoy your writing. And this, I agree, would be a great spoken word piece.

    I've never been into peotry at all. To much symbolism to sort out maybe. Your writing seems so familier though. I like it. I left a massivly long comment on your June 28th entry I would like for you to see. Maybe e-mail back any thoughts. Thanks.

    I accidentally came across your site and thoroughly ejoyed this post. "You've got a way with words.."
    I'm definitely coming back.
    It also sounds like I would enjoy this "Spoken Word" - though I have never heard of it. What is it? Where can I find it?

    Yes, JP (Yes, JP)

    Ady -- Spoken word is basically reading your poetry the way you wrote it. That's my understanding of it anyway. When I write poetry there is a certain tone and inflection that is in my mind as I write. When one reads their own poetry aloud, you are able to express your feeling behind it. Coffee shops, book clubs... librarys.. some have poetry readings. You may look into what Celti mentioned or you may be able to find some in your local library. Thanks for stopping in. I'll be posting again very soon.

    Hey there Girl! Finally set myself up so I could send some posts instead of just lurking around. I have to say your last few posts have been quite in-tense! But it has always been interesting getting to read your writing. Thanks for mentioning me in you blogs (and thanks for defending my broccoli casserole that JC tried making). We'll have to IM or something so we can catch up with what's been happening. Maybe I'll even call!

    Talk to you later!

    P.S.
    I really am enjoying your Blogs. Keep them coming!

    That was absolutely wonderful Inanna! Thanks for the Vigo CD reference, I think I might check it out. My daughter wants me to try writing prose. I'm intrigued by the notion.

    What you wrote was really beautiful!

    :)

    Now where the hell did I put my shades...
