Literature
retrospect
I met the devil at a coffee shop
reading poetry about knights and chivalry
and how we do
with what we have
all we can.
Even if the princess never
loves us back.
He spoke to me afterward at length
over hot yellow apple cider
about the accident of birth we call fate;
how it isn't your fault she was already married, or
far above your class.
How you can't help your purpose, or form.
He spoke passionately, his eyes like pale stars
so mourning his own circumstance;
and I believe he did not realize
he wasn't talking to me.

Literature
Socrates
Socrates cuts the jury apart with his plain truths,
and unadorned,
though he succeeds only in angering them.
Ashamed, and bitter at his corrective nature
they answer his crystalline logic with death.
The Oracle hedges his bets with
loose language, even as Socrates
strove to prove him wrong:
with the wise men, that crossed meanings;
with the poets, that loved only pretty and empty words;
with the artists, that nurtured images far too vibrant
to leave room for petty philosophy.
He spades his own grave
even as he unravels the lies constructing his sentence.
That ignorant lawyer Meletus falls into each trap,
his contradictory arguments proof enough of innocence -
and yet Socrates still dies.
He cared only for the refinery of his soul
and, at the end of the day,
perhaps a free lunch for his efforts.
He said, "This has happened before."
Said, "This will surely happen again."
And left the stage.

Still working with vectors, life is good.  Trying to write a book - I finally have it fully outlined and the main character battened down.  Hopefully I'll finish it this time :3 I'm on version six.  This means I've restarted the book six time.  Awesome.

Anyway, drop a comment if there's anything you'd like to see more of in my gallery.  I'm still making pretty things, just not as much as I'd like to be.

I'm currently a graphic designer for a printing franchise. I've recently moved into my parents' basement to help them out with bills, and enjoy reading, writing, and artmaking. I run almost every day and I enjoy practicing with my two-handed sword. I have two small dogs - tibetan spaniels - and a small cat; my parents have two saint bernards, which are mine by proxy. I'm studying Swedish independently and would eventually like to move to Stockholm.

Wow, I'm really, really happy I inspired you! Uhm, sorry for shameless self-promotion, but I have a livejournal with more fanfiction if you're interested.
