Finally

  One look at Margaret told me she should always be with me, and that settled down a lot of my mental health problems tremendously I gotta say.

Until I got stuck at the role of dude living with mom...I yearned for true parental authority but was afraid to claim it . I didn't want to startle the kids...I love them all but they are VERY fragile it seems to my 48 yr old…

Note to My Friend Who Killed Himself

   Now that I have a family that I would happily die for, anytime, no hesitation you say the word and I will gladly give my life for your continued existence, it is just that damn precious to me...Now that I have this, I was saying, I think of my pal Cliff who was a fellow manic depressive.

   He became a Mormon. Former stoner turned man of…

Fun Family Time

   I I have always considered myself to have lived a long time in a very short while.  Either that, or a very short time in a long while . Either way, it hasn't always been fun,.

   Now that I have a family, the days are pretty much unpredictable because families get up to the most unexpected things, like making spontaneous plans a week or…

I am a Racist But I believe something ought to be done

   My racism is of the kind where it essentially is a jealousy of a whole race due to an losing face to a black person perhaps pre puberty. Perhaps in egoic stage..  Two different kinds of racism. I am the hard core kind. I hate black s. They  show me daily what I could be.

  But look, if we don't do something about racism it will quickly…

The Bionic Penis

   I simply had to share this with you. I told Margaret and her son Woody about it earlier.

   "Hear that, Woody? There's hope for you yet," she said . This is the way she talks to the boy.

   "What are you freaks talking about?!" he exclaimed and went back to his video…

Flash Fiction Challenge: A Warning on Heartworms

   I write this to sound the alarm against the deadly plague of heartworm that (at least in my case) has crossed the dog-human species barrier and now threatens to end my life prematurely. It is not a palatable story, so I warn the faint hearted of you to take some heed.

   It started when my brother brought some mealy worms over on my birthday for our annual fishing trip . I prefer night crawlers but David is a cheap bastard with unusual ideas on how to fish and what to fish for. I…

Anxiety

    

   I was sleepin’ like a rat

When I heard something jerkin’

There stood Rita

Lookin’ just like Tony Perkins

She said, “Would you like to take a shower?

I’ll show you up to the door”

I said, “Oh, no! no!

I’ve been through this…

The Bipolar Blues Pt 223

  • We are all murderers and prostitutes — no matter to what culture, society, class, nation, we belong, no matter how normal, moral, or mature we take ourselves to be.

    Humanity is estranged from its authentic possibilities.
    This basic vision prevents us from taking any unequivocal view of the sanity of common sense, or of the madness of the so-called madman. … Our alientation goes to the roots. The realisation of this is the essential springboard for any…

The Horrible Death of the Bipolar Timetraveller

 

  I was in the garage, in my office in the corner by the rake, shovel, and shelf of tools, reading Heidegger when the bipolar timetraveller shimmered into existence to visit me from touring the universes looking for a cure for bipolar disorder and meeting minimal (sometimes deleterious) success.

   He sat in my lawn chair as I reclined in the solid…

A Lunatic Letter to the Editor

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive

And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes

And if you make it past the shotgun in the hall,

Dial the combination, open the priesthole

And if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall.
There's a kid who had a big hallucination

Making love to girls in magazines.

He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found…

What to Do If Your Step Son Is Smoking Pot

 

The young man is smoking pot, I have learned. I learned it when he had his two corpulent buddy boys over, disappeared up in his room for half an hour of wallshattering giggling and boyish carrying on, descended and ate 3 pizzas and a plate…
