ss - follow



I follow invisible threads of dreamy consistency, I watch the smoky lines jets left behind in the blue sky. I follow audacious routes circum-navigating the oceans and the simplest bus lines through the town. 
In my drowsiness the paths are unclear, seemingly complicated and trampling over any apparent logic. I follow the easy way out because there is no easy way in. I follow the tides without getting seaweed around my ankles. I follow the cycles like any other living being. I follow the paths that the archetypes tell of. I wasn't born a stalker, so I don't follow you.
What follows me? That's a different story. You follow me to my dreams and to my pillow seams. 


*lyrics are again from Smoke City's "It's Amazing". It's amazing that I evoked the same song in two different prompts, in two weeks in a row.

Nifty prose poem, Ms Mood: I like where you take us on your perambulations. Your I follow the easy way out because there is no easy way in and I wasn't born a stalker, so I don't follow you are pure Devil Mood.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

This is very cool, very erotic, almost. Definitely dreamlike.

I had to read it a few times, and now I think I'm addicted to its rhythms.

Devil Mood said...

Susan, wow, I'm very pleased with your comment :)

Music Update: Chaperoned at the school prom last night: deejay played lots of forgettable music, until about ten minutes before the end, when he whipped out Duffy's "Mercy." Sounded great, and thanks to Ms Mood's mentoring, I was the only one around who knew who was singing.

Novel Nymph said...

Devil, I swear we were separated at some point. Those lyrics feel like what is inside of me at the moment. Leave it to you to connect me to myself and the world!

You are amazing!

phish said...

you remind of a recurring dream. where i walk onto a road that leads me on to a great wide sea. on a particularly windy day.

Devil Mood said...

Merry - Thank you!

Novel - Aw, how wonderful! That makes me glad.

Phish - that sounds a bit scary, is it scary for you?

fb said...

Portugal's Eurovision entry was kind of disturbing...

And so the will Ronaldo go to Real Madrid saga returns...

Ever see this?

Devil Mood said...

FB - haha yes, I saw that clip in many different contexts. Don't try to conceal the big fact of the day with Ronaldo gossip. Man Utd won. ;)

I only saw a bit of our song. But I didn't think it was too bad, considering the rest...
