someone said the test of love
is making hard decisions–
choosing, for another’s sake,
the necessary actions;
taking the proper path
though strewn with rocks,
watered with tears, and
fraught with pain.
for love chooses what is best
chooses what must be
shouldered, borne, and done,
in spite of what might be wanted,
regardless of what had been hoped.
Ok, so I’ve implemented redirects for most of the old urls, which should continue to work. I’ve added a number of customizations and tweaks. If anyone runs into anything odd or frustrating, please feel free to contact me via a comment on this post or email via jason at walljm.com. let try this again
dissociative phrases slip in and out
foggy dew, fog lifted, foghorn, leghorn. ;)
cackling energy welling
glad to be free.
free of the fog. there it is again,
chase the pent up rush.
ideas in a fuss,
hear the thrush! now focus. crisp.
clear, feel the clarity, contrasty,
images, razor sharp, like a knife.
now soft, fluid like water.
oh bother. chase the convolution
harry it like a cat and his mouse
or a bird and his prey
wait. where was i again?

I’ve been offline here at walljm.com for nearly three years. In that time I’ve moved away from Saint Louis, settled in near Washington, DC, changed jobs (but not companies), and gone back to school (lets give it up for cdia!).
So a few things have changed around here. For the first time, walljm.com is no longer being run by the custom cms I built in college, and is instead running on the nifty wordpress platform. Truth is, I just got tired of doing my own support. Things are still a little rough, and hopefully as time goes by, I will tweak things and it will start to feel more like home.
In the mean time there will be fresh content. I have about 180+ pieces of poetry to put up, and I want to post the occasional photo story and/or single image as well as the odd long/short form piece when the mood strikes. Look for a new poem every week, probably on mondays, unless I decide I like a different day of the week better.
