Dreaming out-Loud. 10/13/18

(A Brutes first Remembrance)

ON my first full stand-up I notice my soggy-squishy bottom felt better, and there was a chocolate-brown wall about me.

What was most dazzling? being elevated or spotting hypnotizing color? I do not recall, but the second had powered my sense of touch.

Holding bars and gliding down I was again floating in a stinging swamp. I wanted to leave that stink and grab a Brown Wall.

It seems all my life I've run into stingers, but with determination there were canoe’s. ----Gary Carlson "Is the Brute"---

Star Light Star Bright

I was about 3 years old and I spent much time with grandma Bessie who had a bedroom upstairs next to mine. My room had three walls with rows and rows of glass panes as it was an upstairs sun porch; it's glass halfway to the deck. This was my bedroom but this evening it was MoMA, when a force jerked my tiny-head agog-ha, my first night star. Gary Carlson "Is the Brute"

3 month beach bum

After discovered havens, I had a mind smacking for more excitement. Pedaling my dozer red tricycle, I spotted Bessie had forgotten to close the folding stair-gate, and without prejudice, made the dash.I spent summer car-sitting watching the family splashing Ottertail Lake, unable to walk. The University of Minnesota Medical Center was soon to be a 3-month stay

Story Line (1978) 

(A) home on Beacon Hill with 100-mile views every direction.

  1. neighbor was Dragon Lady of China Town Seattle.

  2. Rent 4 bedroom's and studio apartment friends from Bellevue WA.

(D) To entice renters on the Beacon Hill home I supplied their rooms with phones in my name. The home with pilot's bought their own numbers.

-1. 1976 I danced at Seattle's Club "Shelley's Leg" with a guy named Lonnie who would become my first male lover out of two life gave me. 

-2. Lonnie had a 1958 Imperial Crown that we drove to a Montana logging town to see his muscled logger-brother. Leaving Seattle, the moon was bright as Lonnie swapped batterie’s with a parked car. That moon had a wonderful glow.----------ruby's on Lonnie's window-------what am i doing here?-----

 Even that young, staring at Lonnie's home in my orange 1976 mustang, I realized obsession was ugly, My Beacon Hill neighbor was Seattle's "Dragon Lady" so I chose China Town for my new extended party.
