a samisen song
burnished blue in brisk sunlight
a free sea side dawn.

Unknown, likely 1999

playing reflective folk music for change

pale blonde woman
believes that she is the world trade center

plaid pant princess
wants to find mercury on the a line

three blue cosmonauts
mimes waiting for a ship to broadway, or mir

one million
mimes looking like everyone

October 1999 with slight edits

one in a ten million

how many times does it seem?
that the step taken was a word on a plaque.

when your way is plagued by the blue velvet fog,
quite like the purple haze or the indigo smog.
it is a day of the grandest sort the one that is clear.

in nine of ten million
you would not even realize it was so.
in 9,999,990 out of that ten million
you could not even realize that it was not.
but on that one day designed by dogs.
you realize that there is a path to your route and it is right.

May 1999

Old New Poems

I decided to move the wordpress site since I was tired of the ads, and I was renting a server anyway. So H LiNa K Period Com moved!

In honor of that move, I am going to put up some of my college poems for all of the world to not read (or suffer from if you do read). I also dream of making a mix or two while I am stuck at home due to the times.

Jakuta’s I Don’t Know What Season It Is Since Its 70 Degrees in Feb. and SP Runs the EPA Playlist

Old school all mp3 mix in a zip because its just the music that matters.  I bought most of this at the bandcamp ACLU giveaway so give something to someone.




Dora the Implorer

The zipper spilled a watery nun on the ground.

Her presence demanded steps of inspiration,
groans towards the heavenly helicopters,
and for the father to relieve the fevers, the chills,
but she evaporated and left winter turf,
so he clenched his hand and demanded milk, spat it out,
and sobbed where her liquid bosom had lain.
