Finished applying for Disability and now onto the appointment with SS for the SSI – this is the hardest thing I’ve ever done and now the bees are circling – damn allergy is going to bring me inside for awhile. I’ve had to beat my heart against this wall to do it, admit that I am disabled and unable to secure work, meaningful or not – any work. There are only so many hours in the day that I can be really active and usually those are spent on my wife and son, writing and Legos. Legos are the shit.

Focus on the writing

by jhon baker

Things are starting to get easier – I think. I may have a cold or allergies – probably allergies but the sandbox is finished and beautiful. I have to recharge the air filters on my motorcycle and truck and finish the application for disability and SSI – these are both things I’ve been putting off but can no longer.


the madman levels his rifle
in calm calculus
bright cloudless day
78 degrees F (23 c).

7.62x54R forced from the barrel
spinning in terminal glory.

the poet stands, taciturn,
in the street with notebook
pencil to paper
calm calculus
accepting and falls to
his knees. Last poem penned
in darkest red.
78 degrees F (23 c)
