Poem: Conclusion

things begin with anticipation
and ever growing expectation
then meet the stark realization
of being me

the problem isn’t you
you never were to blame
all that ever was wrong
is caught inside the frame
of being me

things implode in great frustration
and ever building aggravation
only to be stuck in evasions
of being me

the problem is so clear
the solution simple
there remains no sense
in the continuation
of being me.

The End.

Poem: Crumbled

crushed tight
crushed small
tiny ball

thrown hard
thrown far
wrecking bar

drawn down
drawn blank
harshly frank

like a knife

no words
no poem
I am broken.

Poem: NoOne’s Song

i write words that NoOne sees
that then softly NoOne reads
NoOne sings them right out loud
in the silence of NoOne’s room

each sweet note
gently falls
bouncing down
and off the walls

NoOne picks them up again
puts them back where they belong
Then NoOne sings them one more time
until SomeOne smartly comes along
telling NoOne that their singing’s wrong.

NoOne is all silent now
because SomeOne’s words
just stole her song.

A thousand goblins for less than five bucks…?


A friend of mine is trying a Kickstatrter to launch an expansion of his paper miniatures for role-playing games and his line of 3D paper role-playing add-ons! Really awesome artwork, and if you are a fan old school dungeons & dragons RPGs – then this is an incredible opportunity to get your hands on exclusive Okumarts originals!

I do spend far too much time browsing the interweb, that is for certain. The reason I do it is because occasionally I come across a nugget of pure gold.
A few years ago I came across the work of an artist called Dave Okum on a paper miniatures forum. His figures stood out because of their really engaging cartoon style, their bold and effective use of colour and because he was drawing what I had always wanted to possess – damned good and fun fantasy figures.

Now before you turn your nose up at the thought of using paper/card miniatures take a glance at that unpainted pile of lead and plastic on your hobby bench, yes you know the one, the “I’ll get around to it” pile… Wouldn’t it be nice if you could produce fifty figures in a single evening that would look great on the tabletop as…

Hand-crafted One-of-a-Kind Jewelry

A friend of mine has just launched a Tictail online store for her hand-made one-of-a-kind jewelry and I helping promote her efforts. Please go take a look – and pass on the link to anyone that you think might be interested in her creations!

She writes:

Okay, beautiful people of facebook. It’s that time of year – I need support. If you were thinking of sprucing up your jewelry closet, now is the time. Do you have a special event to go to? Perhaps you have a date coming up. Or you have a job and want to look prettier than your co-workers. Or there is a girl you’re trying to impress. (you could always win a girl’s heart with lovely jewelry.) Or you know someone who needs your support as she tries to get her little teeny weeny business off the ground. (Me! ) Whatever the case, I would really appreciate your help. And that’s that. Happy Thursday to all!
