Insomniacs And Dogs

You Make Me FeelmiloshYou Make Me Feel

This song is rain on city streets near dawn. Steam from every urban orifice, and hot coffee in your hands. You are up because it’s the best time in the city to be up. Before the insanity and the madding madding. You, and the insomniacs, and the owners of particularly demanding dogs, move through the mist. And is she thinking about you? Probably not, but it’s the question you ask yourself the most. Why didn’t she see what you saw? Where was the piece missing for her that fit so perfectly for you? She could never answer you and it made you want to burst with sadness. It’s one thing to have a clearly stated argument, but this nebulosity grabs you and hurls you down on the ground. And so you focus on the insomniacs and the dogs.

  1. Jonah – I know EXACTLY how you feel when you say “And is she thinking about you? Probably not, but it’s the question you ask yourself the most. Why didn’t she see what you saw? Where was the piece missing for her that fit so perfectly for you? She could never answer you and it made you want to burst with sadness.”

    I was listening to a song that is driving me with reflections, from my generation. Coyote, by Joni Mitchell. In it she says
    “There’s no comprehending
    Just how close to the bone and the skin and the eyes
    And the lips you can get
    And still feel so alone
    And still feel related”

    I’m of the persuasion that truly we are all one – our separatness is an illusion (have you seen “What the Bleep Do We know”?). But yet, at a human level there is that huge gulf sometimes. What does it mean? Why didn’t she see it as you did? I don’t get it. Thank you for this. Your mother reminded me of your blog, gave me the URL and now I’m a true believer. thanks for sharing you with all of us.
