Week 7 – Brian Weeks

Posted: May 9, 2011 in Brian Weeks, Week 07

This week’s submission is a sign I painted for our front door on a great piece of flagstone I found while I was out on a walk.

There is a bear paw for me,

… and one for my husband, Ron.

Our home is filled with bear paraphernalia. (If you hadn’t already guessed, yes, it has deeper meaning for us than living in the woods. Google it. 🙂 )

We’ve been in this house, back home in New Hampshire for six months now. It was time for me to add my artistic touch – out of hibernation, and ready for the summer!

Week 7- R.A. Matheson

It Was All Just so Fucking Beautiful and Sad

It was there,
reading our horrorscope each morning
over a steaming hot cup of junk
all arms set an hour too early
wake to the eager hooks of relief,
although I am naked,
I can feel the allergy of wool coating across my skin,

I wish I could hide that tightness in my chest like you could,
it comes in closing throat and dripping eyes


I’ve choked it out with a straw cut in half,
a tar coating, scrape the insides with a cuticle tool
to get every last bit.

There are mountains of dye in Indian markets
I have never seen with my own eyes,
but I have felt them flood through my body in waves,
they dull the same as

bottle of ink too beautiful to remain that hue
once on paper,

bottle of pure vanilla extract that never
tastes as good as it smells.

It was all just so un-fucking-definable,
a cloud in my mind
an empty Christ we couldn’t stop praying to.
