Better For Their Creation

These hungry silences

Do not falter

Yet here, strengthening by action

And although there are fine words

A touch, an act of service

Mutual intermingling

Time, space, mutable as kissing

Pin you down and exorcise

Your fear with my fuck

Laugh eat and conquer

Come to me

I offer the play and the seeds

Have sunk roots

My adventures blossom

A quest into ashes

Found gold in these scars

Touch them

Better for their creation

Writing Update

I’m working through The Lightning Thesaurus at a healthy pace. One of the aids to this has been the outlining as a guide, and also understanding more about archetype and story structure.

The draft is telling the story. I’m keen to avoid big chunks of exposition so when it arises, i put them in a separate file so i can break them up and seed them later. Using what I need is key.

Tone is different here. I’m drawing on some disparate ideas and elements, and the language reflects it. You can communicate difference through the words themselves so long as it doesn’t stop you putting them down.

Conceptually, the ideas come from different places. Some of it archetypal, mostly because the idea amuses me and i like the challenge of it.

I’m at a good point, with a great outline and a clear process. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in due course.

Flavour

What flavour of

Thought am I

To you

Copper and sanguine

Sweet and intoxicating

Those points

Where the promise of my

Fingers reduces you

To prayer

As i bloom

In your imagination

The rough reality of me

Falls before nothing

No one

Call my name

Taste my own thoughts

Elixir

Narcotic

Medicine

Nothing Keeps Me Anywhere

I have rebranded and amended the book to better reflect my ownership of it. It is unique and I feel reaching more people under my name rather than Dahlia would better serve it.

It will also be available in paperback and ebook.
