Churning mosaic - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Churning mosaic
The mist was unintentional. It churned hypnotically, jovially pushing my attention on it's surface.
Because if this
the morning gold is tainted - intentionally tainted -
like a doctor taking the day off in Japan. He should have followed the signs, gone to Africa or some such
dark continent,
where man is more primitive because he lives off the land.

I drop my glass, balking at the array of morning gold and victrics that results,
a mosaic of lost time.
The drops and pieces coalesce
and a face emerges - younger than I last saw her.
Wind. A disturbance,
cherub gives way to swaying waves reminiscent of bucolic country sides
and the hilly nature of her.

No time to sweep the glass, my fortunes dissipate with time.

Hmm. Very interesting, sir.

What part is interesting?

Well, all of it as usual.

I spent a good while reading everyone's little "you:" thing and who it belonged to, and I feel as though I've learned a bit more about you. Happiness.

…aloof? I’m confused.

I don't deign to say that is how it is. Rather, it's this coyness in some of your early entries I sought to incorporate. Coyness, as I see it, is an exercise in aloofness, as being coy keeps others at arms length.

Perhaps "coy" is a better descriptor?

I keep forgetting to tell you this, but out of everyone who has done this, you have written easily the most interesting thing about me. Probably the most surprising, too. Thanks.

Surprising in what manner?

if i were willing to tell people what i think they think of me, i would have guessed fey's answer. i always assume you don't like me, but you've said almost exactly what i would wish someone to say of me.

not fey's, anna's.
