[a "cold light" because it produces almost no heat. It is produced when oxygen, breathed in through the abdominal trachea combines with a substance called luciferin in the presence of the enzyme luciferase, in special cells called photocytes.]

[either a continuous glow, or discrete single flashes, or "flash-trains" composed of multi-pulsed flashes.]
continuous glowing object fell out of the night. hit my shoulder. and died. held in hand on the walk home. from the cemetery. began to move. refused to fly away. kept in an upturned cup.
third grade all over again.

while I was trimming my eyelashes today: if someone were to steal everything I own, they would be doing me an enormous favor. especially objects of sentimental 'value.'

a man came into, what i refer to as, 'the industrial break room.' he struck a match for his cigarette. cupped his hand around the flame, but the air was still.

a train leaves galesburg as the sun is setting. it’s easy for us to get on. after dangling our legs over the edge, we realize how rapidly it’s accelerating. i jumped off first. a horizontal fall into jagged rocks. abrasion, dirt, ripped jeans and blood in my eye. like a physics problem i can’t quite recall.
initial/ending. acceleration, velocity, displacement on/off train. unknown variables and two constants of gravity, metrics.

today, i spent ninety-eight cents.
1. made four photocopies (for class) at five cents per sheet.
2. placed remaining seventy-eight cents on the sidewalk and in two puddles. phil saw wade (who contributed forty-four pennies to the cause) and i doing this. i told that "instead of picking up pennies off of the sidewalk, we're placing them on the sidewalk." he laughed and said he could respect that. i said, "it's a way of giving back."

5:45 p.m. :one penny had been picked up.
9:38 p.m.: someone in a group of first-year girls noticed the pennies and pointed them out. one girl kicked a few of them off the sidewalk. her friend said, "hey, you've like wasted seven cents! you should have picked those up." they also seemed to notice the pennies in the puddle, but were unwilling to pick those up.
10 p.m.: found the missing pennies in the grass and put them back. one penny still missing, but wade replaced it (maintenance of site-specific art: +0.01).

serving size: about 7 pieces of dehydrated pineapple chunks (41 g)
sugars: 31 g

i've had almost the entire package of the most disgusting snack food ever to grace health food store shelves. my teeth hurt.

threw a pear out of the window.

sometimes i try to convince myself that i have a life. but, i really don't. in any case, i spent time drawing and reading outside today. also had a picnic. went to a lecture.

threw the rest of the pineapple chunks out the window.

spent an hour and a half on the bathroom floor because i felt faint. eventually, got up only to sleep on my floor.
missed class. walked to the doctor's office. the doctor said that if anyone else had my extremely low blood pressure they would be "on the floor." he asked forty-seven questions. i counted.
he sent me upstairs to get bloodwork done. the lab technician couldn't find a vein at first. he took red, orange and green vials of blood. i thought of ben and chops rob since they're also afraid of blood (or is it needles?). then i fainted.
called a cab. the cab driver gave me a rather horrified look. she asked where to? but made no attempt at small talk. a small victory.

Every summer I attempt to move into a tent in my backyard. It rarely lasts more than one night because of the constant traffic.

This year, however, I will start early: I want to buy a tent and pitch it inside my dorm room. I'll continue to leave the windows open all the time and only eat meals on the floor. I'll adopt more habits I find to be reminiscent of camping as they occur to me.

[Why am I in college? I was meant to be a hunter-gatherer. I don't want to live on a commune or a farm, I want to forage for food in a tropical climate. A short camping trip would solve this frustration.]
